Port Canaveral, Florida

Cruising, fishing, nightlife and the freshest seafood. 

Port Canaveral, Florida is a world-class cruise and cargo port located in the heart of east Central Florida on Florida's Space Coast.  Known as "The Port", Port Canaveral offers more leisure activities than any other Florida deep water port.  Our port is the fastest growing cruise port in Florida, based on both an uncongested, laid-back atmosphere that makes it easy to have fun and an array of choices that offer something for just about everyone. 

Exploration Tower

Just opened is Exploration Tower featuring historic displays, high-tech interactive exhibits and awe-inspiring views that will set visitors on the path of exploration and adventure that first attracted Europeans to Florida some 500 years ago.


Port Canaveral is the homeport of three of the industry's top cruise lines:  Carnival, Disney and Royal Caribbean.  In 2015 Norwegian Cruise Lines will be sailing out of Port Canaveral.  These world renowned companies have located some of their biggest and best ships in Port Canaveral, offering the most innovative cruise experience on the high seas today.

Port Canaveral offers 3-, 4-, 5-, 7-, 8- and 9-day/night cruises, with itineraries to the Bahamas, eastern, western and southern Caribbean.

Restaurants and Nightlife

Port Canaveral isn't just a cruise port, it's also home to some of the best seafood restaurants on Florida's Space Coast.  Featuring catch-of-the-day that could have, quite frankly been caught from any of the numerous Charter fishing boats that call The Port "home",  Port Canaveral restaurants pride themselves on fresh, quality seafood, the most spectacular views of the cruise ships, and a refreshing cocktail.  Don't forget to take the family to Jetty Park, stroll along the shoreline and Jetty Pier.  You might see a sea turtle or two! 

Snooze & Cruise

Whether you're preparing to set sail, or returning from an unforgettable ocean voyage, the Space Coast is the perfect place to extend your cruise vacation. Arrive on the Space Coast one or two days prior to your cruise departure date to relax and enjoy the many attractions in our area or just relax on the beach and dream of your upcoming cruise. Or post- cruise, spend a few more days unwinding before you head to the Orlando attractions or head home. 

Space Coast hotels are only minutes away from Port Canaveral and when you choose to stay here, you don't have to worry about getting stuck in traffic or weather delays that may cause you to miss your cruise. 

"Snooze & Cruise" packages, available at many of our local hotels, allow convenient parking and transportation to and from Port Canaveral.  Just cruise on over, and we'll take care of the rest.  For more information, click on Specials above and then on Snooze & Cruise for a listing of hotels offering the package.
