Port Canaveral, in the center of Florida’s east coast, is not only the surfing capital of the Atlantic. It is also home to rocket and shuttle launches, the largest sea turtle nesting area in the country, the largest scallop fishery on the planet and a national refuge with more endangered species than any other.
Walt Disney World and Universal Studios are only one hour away from Port Canaveral. Kennedy Space Center and numerous beaches are nearby which makes this port ideal for families.
The port is one of Orlando’s closest beaches with dolphins, manatees, loggerhead turtles and miles of pristine sand — minus the crowds that are typical of South Florida. A mile and a half of bike paths run throughout Port Canaveral, as well as three parks. The bustling Cove at Port Canaveral features a variety of restaurants and shops.
