Five Things To Do At Canaveral

Enjoy a Port Canaveral Fishing charters trip with me, Captain Richard Bradley, it is an excellent experience for both visiting and resident outdoor enthusiast. Port Canaveral is famous for its abundant sea life and sprawling continental shelf. The shoals jut out almost 35 miles east of Port Canaveral, spiraling down to the depths of the Gulf Stream. Then to the outer canyons some 100 miles or so beyond the Canaveral National Seashore.


As the more adventurous push further offshore looking for Florida gamefish such as king mackerel, wahoo, mahi-mahi, and sailfish. Port Canaveral deep sea fishing has no boundaries as there is something for everyone from the novice to the expert angler.

World’s Most Popular Cruise Port

As the second busiest cruise port in the world Port Canaveral offers some of the newest and most innovative cruise ships traveling to the Caribbean.

Forty minutes east of the Orlando International Airport, Port Canaveral makes for a perfect air-to-sea travel destination and is home port to four cruise lines.

You can also find entertainment on the Port’s gambling ship, the Victory Casino Cruises.


Beaches, Parks & Exploration

Port Canaveral has several recreational areas. Jetty Park is a five-acre oceanfront beach with a campground, fishing pier, picnic areas, along with a concession pavilion.

Freddie Patrick and Rodney S. Ketcham are two other parks in the Port with boat ramps.

The Port’s recent architectural landmark, Exploration Tower, provides seven floors of exhibits and interactive play. Stepping onto the deck you will enjoy an incredible birds-eye view of Port Canaveral and Cocoa Beach.

Dining, Nightlife and Seafood

The entertainment district at the Port is the Cove. With several waterfront restaurants offering local seafood from finger foods to full-course dinners, you have plenty of choices while enjoying live music daily.

You might even like to pick up a bag of freshly caught shrimp or fish at the local seafood markets. One of our favorites is shrimp, the “Canaveral Whites”.

Rocket Launches

We are “Go” for launch, a phrase very familiar to us over the decades of growing up here and having parents involved in the space journey.

One of the best views can be along the Port’s waterfront or right on the beach. You will feel the thrill of a rocket launching into space as you witness the sight to behold.

Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station continue lighting up the sky. Hopefully, you will get to witness one of these fascinating missions while visiting Port Canaveral.
