On satellite view, you will see the L-shaped dock. Keating is the large gray building adjoining that. ~12 parking spaces available under the building. Much more available just across the street in the shell parking lot. Many more spaces just down the street in front of the aquarium entrance.
I will be posting directional signs outside the building. Look for the TONMO tentacles. Feel free to contact me.
