Located directly on the main shipping lanes along the East Coast of Florida, Port Canaveral's man-made deep-draft harbor offers direct access to the Atlantic Ocean. One hour transit time from sea buoy to dock provides ease for carriers while allowing for highly efficient routing and reduced vessel costs.
Port Canaveral is the most efficient gateway to Central Florida, the 10th largest market in the United States. The Port's central east coast Florida location and uncongested nonstop highway access to major road and rail systems puts it within three hours of every major Florida market. A larger market of 81 million consumers throughout Florida and the Southeast U.S. is accessible within eight hours of Port Canaveral.
