Join Us for an Unforgettable Experience!
Growing up in Central Florida, one of the best activities was packing up the car, heading to the coast, and watching a rocket from NASA launch into space. The giant Mercury, Apollo, and the Shuttles are a thing of the past. Now we have Delta Rockets, Atlas Rockets, and SpaceX Falcon Rockets.
Your mission: Sign up, then show up at Kelly Park East for an easy paddle that ends with your heart racing and adrenaline pumping. We cannot guarantee a launch, but we can guarantee an exciting time on the water. We frequently pass manatees, dolphins, sea turtles, and rays. In summer months (May – Oct.), you will be amazed by the nighttime bioluminescence!
We not only offer the perfect seat for a launch, we get you in close! Check in every so often for an updated rocket launch schedule.
