The best way to discover a new place you’ve never been before is through a guided tour. There’s lots to explore on Florida’s Space Coast, so it’s important to know where to start. Guided nature tours are a great way to see our natural waterways and discover unfamiliar wildlife such as dolphins, manatees, and alligators. If you move to the beat of your own drum and want a guided tour, then you can rent your own kayaks, boats, or stand-up paddleboards and navigate our unique ecosystem on your own. If adrenaline is your game, then try zipping around the river on an Airboat tour or take to skies with Florida Air Tours and get a bird’s eye view in a bi-plane.

Outdoors in the sun and water are not the only ways to tour the Space Coast. Try a historic tour that shows the roots of the Space Coast like at Sams House on Pine Island or the Harry T. & Harriette V. Moore Memorial Park. Then when your done soaking in the history, soak in the suds at a guided brewery tour at Carib Brewery USA, the largest brewery on the Space Coast.
