We ubered to the ferry landing to pick up the ferry to Coronado. The platform was huge with so many boats, kiosks and people milling about. Very clean and well organized. We found our ticket booth by asking another booth where it might be and...More
I was in San Diego for a conference and looking for a quick trip away from downtown. I found the 5th avenue ferry station (city side of Joe’s Crab Shack) to be easy, safe and cheap. Tickets are available at an automated machine at the...More
The ferry is a very convenient way to get from Coronado to San Diego or the reverse if you don't have a car. From The Landing you have phenomenal views of the San Diego Skyline. However, the rest of the landing is quite obviously aimed...More
We want to go to Coronado or take a boat tour, so we decided to ride the Ferry over to Coronado Island and then walked to the Del Coronado Hotel.
Ferry was cheap, maybe $10 round trip, and quickest way to the island.
Some fun things to do with adults and children. Fishing off the pier is free with no license required. Lots of shops and casual foodie places. Island Pizza is VERY good....BBQ (Little Piggies) a good spot as well. Cocktail Hour at Il Forniao is terrific....More
My spouse and I traversed the San Diego Bay from the Gaslamp District to Coronado Island on the ferry on a Thursday afternoon in early July 2018. Because we were staying in the Gaslamp District at the Hilton, we took the ferry from the Convention...More

Are you planning to take the ferry FROM Coronado or TO Coronado? If taking it from Coronado, you should have no problem parking in the large parking lot that serves the shopping plaza. It is free. The ferry leaves from the edge of the shopping center.
If, however, your departure point is San Diego, then that ia a bit more challenging. Any parking in San Diego is difficult to find and pricey.
The closest parking is the Convention Center and the cost is between $15 and $35 for the day. If you don't mind a little walk, try parking at Seaport Village shopping center. The costs are as follows:
Monday - Thursday: Validated self-parking: $5 for the first 3 hours or part thereof; $3 every 30 minutes thereafter or part thereof. Validation with a minimum $10 purchase. Non-validated self parking: $8 per hour or part thereof.
Looks like the Convention Center is the closest and probably the best option. There are some lots behind Petco Park but the neighborhood borders a transitional section (large segment of homeless population).
Maybe you'll be fortunate enough to say on the Coronado side (I love it there). In case you did not know (as I did not know), the Coronado Bridge is free as the bond measure to pay for it has long since been paid off. The views are pretty amazing along the drive over the bridge.

It’s about 1/2 a mile walk. Easy day. I would recommend you exit the ferry and head towards the Hilton, then use the foot bridge over the road and rail road tracks. It’s a nice view and not that much more of a distance.
