Whale’s Tooth Parking Lot  

The Whale’s Tooth Parking Lot is located at 532 Acushnet Avenue New Bedford.  Open 24 hours with night security.  We suggest you arrive one hour before your scheduled ferry.

 Outdoor parking is $15.00 per calendar day with a free round trip shuttle to the ferry terminal. Prepay kiosks are located throughout the lot at the yellow poles.  Cash and credit cards are accepted.  When choosing the cash option, please keep in mind that the kiosks do not give change so exact amount is highly recommended.  Please leave the receipt face up on your dash.  Violators will be ticketed $50/day.  If you will be extending your stay please complete the Request to Extend and email it to HDCParking@NewBedford-ma.gov.

 Monthly passes are $140.00 and Annual passes are $550.00.  Passes can be purchased in advance by completing our Pass Info Sheet and emailing it to HDCParking@NewBedford-ma.gov or at the HDC office  52 Fisherman’s Wharf (next pier over from the ferry terminal at Pier 3).  Our office can be reached at 508-961-3000 with any questions Monday – Friday 8am – 4pm.
