Port Canaveral is located on Florida’s east coast, approximately 46 miles away from the Orlando International Airport. It is a favored destination for many vacationers because of the range of activities and ease of access from the Orlando International Airport. Disney, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian and Carnival Cruise Lines are just a few of the ships that set sail out of Port Canaveral for destinations within the southern, eastern and western Caribbean as well various islands in the Bahamas. Cruises are often available in 3, 4, 5, 7 or 8 day vacations, depending on the cruise line and destination of your choice.
Cruising is not the only activity available in Port Canaveral. Enjoy a relaxing day at the Jetty Park Beach and Campground where you can have a picnic, go fishing or surfing, as well as observe marine mammals such as manatees and dolphins at play.
