Fishing & Boating in Space Coast

No shortage of opportunities to reel one in!

Florida’s Space Coast offers many boating and fishing opportunities. Access to the Atlantic Ocean, the Indian River Lagoon and the Intracoastal Waterway opens up a boaters’ paradise, and fishermen will find plenty of bodies of water to cast their lines in while visiting. Saltwater and freshwater fishing provide a wide range of fishing experiences and expectations that no matter what season it is, something is biting somewhere.

Florida’s Space Coast offers great fishing year round – from Mosquito Lagoon south to Sebastian Inlet.  Some of the distinctions the area has earned include:
