View the next rocket launch on Florida’s Space Coast with Cocoa Beach Dolphin Tours.
You do not have to get stuck in a traffic jam or stand on the side of the road in the hot Florida sun to view the historical rocket launches that occur almost daily from Kennedy Space Center. Instead, let the United States Coast Guard Master Captains and Naturalist First-Mates on staff at Cocoa Beach Dolphin Tours guide you down the Banana River, giving you an up-close and personal view directly across from the launch pad.
The fully covered, 50-seat modern Trident Pontoon Catamarans are the perfect vessel to cruise the shallow waters of the Banana River. The Pontoon Catamarans come fully equipped with plenty of standing room, are wheelchair accessible, and have a full restroom. Cocoa Beach Dolphin Tours also provides light refreshments on board for sale, and guests are always welcome to bring beer, wine, and light snacks.
With any rocket launch, the date, time, and viewing opportunities are subject to change, as they can be affected by technical/mechanical issues, range operations, and weather, either in advance or at the last minute. Sales are final on Cocoa Beach Dolphin Tours launch cruises due to the limited nature of the tickets, and refunds are unavailable. However, all boarding passes are transferable if a launch is scrubbed before getting underway or the date and time change. If we leave the dock and the launch is scrubbed, your ticket cannot be transferred. Rocket Launch Cruises begin boarding 90-minutes before the official launch time, departing the dock one hour before the launch.
Aside from Rocket Launch cruises, our two-hour wildlife sightseeing tours depart daily at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., 3:30 p.m., and sunset. Cocoa Beach Dolphin Tours also offers private charters for special events and celebrations. No matter what type of experience you are searching for, you and your tour group will have an unforgettable day out on the water, exploring majestic Florida wildlife.
