Overlooking the North Atlantic Ocean, Port Canaveral is one of the world’s busiest ports, welcoming cruise, cargo and naval vessels. There are 10 ships on average that enter the port each day, which welcomes passengers to Florida with a range of restaurants, shops and attractions right off the ship.
Port Canaveral includes a range of waterfront dining options for cruise passengers or those looking to soak up the marina lifestyle. Milliken's Reef is ideal for fresh seafood, steak and live music, while Seafood Atlantic boasts its own on-site seafood market selling fresh lobster and local fish.
Don’t miss visiting the interactive Exploration Tower, which features seven floors of hands-on exhibits, an observation deck overlooking Port Canaveral and an on-site cafe. You can organise a guided fishing excursion with Time and Tide Tours, learn more about space exploration at the Sands Space History Center or test your luck on table games at Victory Casino Cruises.
Port Canaveral is positioned between the Canaveral Bight and Banana River, about 50 minutes’ drive from Orlando and 15 minutes north of Cocoa Beach. The port is easily reached using taxis, rideshares or a hire car.
