Harbor Access During Car Week
Dear Boaters,  During car week the Monterey Peninsula swells with car enthusiasts from around the globe. In excess of 80,000 visitors will be coming to the peninsula for this weekend. It is an exciting time for the peninsula. With this event comes traffic, changes to access, and parking congestion. In this issue we have included maps and information of what to expect in the way of events, road closures, and access situations. Directly in front of the Marina, the "Depot" lot is already closed and the auction tent is being erected. One of the large "Bull" pens for auction cars is being set up in the parking lot adjacent to the Maritime Museum. This reduces available parking spaces near the marina substantially for more than a week. Please plan on arriving to your boat earlier than normal and please be patient with our tourists while they visit Monterey. If vehicles are parked in "Permit Only" spots without permits please call the Parking Enforcement Office with the license number, location, and description of the vehicle at 831-646-5695.

Overflow parking for vehicles with Harbor Parking decals is at Waterfront Lot (including rows M,N.O) and the East Depot Gravel lot.

Thank you for your help,
Harbor Staff

Keeping our Waters Safe and Clean
All of us together do make a difference. Ever noticed how clean our waters are here at the Monterey Marina. That didn't just happen on it's own. Everyone together is the solution to pollution. We are very proud of our boaters, captains, businesses, and citizens. Please keep up the effort. Simple reminders:

1) Don't let items accidentally fall into the water
2) Don't accumulate "stuff" on the berthing fingers and walkways
3) Cover your trash, birds and winds alike give trash wings to fly away
4) Please do not DUMP contaminated fluids into Harbor or ocean.
