The Cove

Port Canaveral is not your average port. It's not just some place that you take a cruise out of and that's it. It is a destination within itself. The Cove offers waterfront entertainment where you can enjoy a wide variety of bars, restaurants, charter boats, shops, attractions, and live music. There is no other port that gives you so many options to choose from. 

Fresh seafood

Lionfish at Grills Seafood Deck and Tiki Bar

The seafood is an absolute must, being that it is a port, and many commercial fishermen are constantly unloading fresh seafood. You can watch as your meal goes directly from the docks to the restaurant kitchen and right onto your plate. Port Canaveral has some of the most dynamic dining scenes on the East Coast, and the fresh seafood plays a big role in that. Fish Tacos, Mahi sandwiches, Tuna Poke, Snow Crab, mussels, oysters, Rainbow Trout; Port Canaveral has every type of seafood you could dream of. It doesn’t matter if you are a local or a visitor in town for only a few days, once your set foot into one of Port Canaveral’s fine-dining restaurants you will feel as if you are on a vacationing in a tropical paradise.

Events

Key Lime Pie Festival at the Exploration Tower in Port Canaveral

The Cove has become a hub for premier events on the Space Coast. From authentic seafood festivals to concerts, the Port has a little bit of everything. The Brewmaster's Invitational Beer Festival, an annual craft beer festival, calls the Cove home. It takes place at the Exploration Tower, and features hundreds of beers from not only local Florida breweries but from breweries all over the world. The Space Coast Art Show, an event that has been running 50 years strong, just recently decided to make the Cove its permanent home. Another newcomer to the Cove is the Florida Key Lime Pie Festival. One of the most popular dessert dishes in the state of Florida, where popular local restaurants showcase their best version of key lime pie.
