There is ample parking at PortMiami for vehicles of cruise passengers and a free, wheelchair accessible shuttle to pick-up passengers and their luggage from their cars and drop them off at their designated cruise terminal.

General Fees

Long term cruise passengers should expect to pay $22 per night, while the daily rate is $8 for short-term parking. There is no reserved parking, however, there is ample space available.

Recreational / Oversized Vehicles

Recreational Vehicles can park in Lot E (surface lot), directly across from Terminal E. There are also a limited number of parking spaces at Garage D directly across from Terminal D. Oversized vehicles are charged $20 per 20 feet in length or the equivalent to the number of parking spaces used per night.

Disabled Parking

Public parking charges will apply to vehicles parking at PortMiami's public parking facilities that display a disabled parking permit or license tag, except as provided by Florida state law. However, for the parking fees to be waived, appropriate documentation must be provided to the attendant upon exiting the parking garage. Upon reaching the toll, the attendant will also provide you with additional documentation to fill out. 

We encourage you to check out the parking section of the Port of Miami's website for the most accurate and current information.

Disabled Parking Checklist / Required Documents:

There is no limit to the amount of days one can park their car at the parking garage.
