Welcome to the Canaveral Port Authority!
Port Canaveral

The Exploration Tower at Port Canaveral is visually stunning. Lots of great local information inside & family-friendly. Joscelyn C. - Clermont, FL

If anyone is or knows of someone tying the knot, it would benefit them to check out this place. Not only is it unique and new, but it's gorgeous inside, the staff is friendly and phenomenal, and it's just plain beautiful! David L. - Titusville, FL

Wonderful & impressive place! Breathtaking space-related photography on display, stunning architecture & art, fun & interactive displays. I live locally but was absolutely amazed with how much I learned about the very special place I get to call home. Great reminder of what makes our community so unique. Can't say enough positive things! Allison B. - Rockledge, FL
