More than four million cruise passengers pass through Port Canaveral each year, boarding ships for destinations in the Bahamas and the Caribbean. Did you also know the Port is an exciting place to explore? Day and night, cargo ships carrying everything from orange juice to automobiles depart for worldwide destinations, and you can enjoy a front-row view of the action at one of the many restaurants that line the waterway. Or if gambling is your style, board the Victory Casino Ship that sails twice daily. Enjoy a relaxing boat ride, a delicious meal, and full Vegas-style gambling. On shore, Exploration Tower has two observation decks and an interactive exhibit where you can navigate a boat through the port to greet a cruise ship. Peer through a telescope to get an up-close look at all the activity, a panoramic view of the stars, and maybe even a rocket launch on Florida’s historic Space Coast. Or, take a stroll at Jetty Park beach and enjoy the sand in your toes as you wave to cruise passengers heading out to sea.
