Parking

IF YOU ARE VISITING DURING HIGH SEASON (MARCH- AUGUST) PLAN FOR TRAFFIC!!
IT IS NOT UNCOMMON TO EXPERIENCE A VERY DELAYED DRIVE DOWN TO THE BEACH.
We ask that you plan accordingly and ARRIVE AT LEAST 1 HOUR PRIOR to your scheduled
tour.
There are great options for parking on Clearwater Beach but none of them are guaranteed as they
all fill up on a first come, first serve basis.
Most popular:

 Clearwater Municipal Marina: you can park into any metered space that doesn’t specify NO PERMITS,
feed it a quarter and walk over to our booth (Slip 19, look for a blue sphere with ice cream cones on the
roof) to purchase a City Parking Permit for the duration of your cruise. You will have to place the permit
back into your car before boarding the tour. Spots marked handicap are only valid for 2 hours at a time,
you may get ticketed if you do not purchase a parking permit. The Marina lot is 100% under the control
of the city of Clearwater. The Fun Boat will not be responsible for tickets acquired due to non-
compliance of policy or any policy changes made by the city that we have not been notified of. The Fun
Boat cannot guarantee parking and recommends you find parking BEFORE purchasing the permit.
Parking permits cannot be purchased in advance. ALL PARKING PERMIT SALES ARE FINAL, NO
EXCEPTIONS!
Alternate Parking:

 North Beach Parking Garage at 490 Poinsettia Ave: this parking option is located on the North side of
Clearwater Beach, at about 15 minutes walking distance from our location. You will receive a ticket as
you enter the garage and pay the fee when you leave.

 Pier 60 Parking Lot: this parking option is located directly West of us, at about 2 minutes walking
distance from our location. You will need to pay for parking after you arrive and place your receipt on the
dashboard of your car.

 Surf Style Megastore & Hyatt Regency Garages: these parking options are privately owned and located
just South of us, at about 5 minutes walking distance from our location. You will receive a ticket as you
enter the garage and pay the fee when you leave.
Other parking lots and garages are available on Clearwater Beach. Parking rates may be found by
visiting or contacting the City of Clearwater Parking Department at 727-562-4704.
