We are one of the very few companies that do “late night” and “early am” launch tours
5, 4, 3, 2, 1…we have liftoff. Don’t miss the next rocket launch viewing from the water. You’ll be onboard our pontoon boat, as close as you can get by water, to one of the most earth-shaking events you’ll ever witness.
Join us for an upcoming rocket launch. We depart from Kelly Park. This is one of Brevard County’s finest Public Parks, where you can park your car while you go on the tour.
Feel the excitement of those around you. See and hear the engines fire up. Feel the rumbling grow until the water and boat begin to tremble. Watch as lift-off occurs. Follow the bright orange in the sky. You’ll be so close that on clear days, you can see the explosive charge as the boosters fall away.
If you’re lucky enough to join our crew when they are landing the boosters back on land, you’ll see the booster thrusters fire as it nears the landing platform. Once it’s down, the sonic boom is ground, or in our case, water shaking.
Why Go On a Rocket Launch Viewing?
The thrill and excitement of being so close as the launch and boosters land to be used again and again is palpable. You won’t want to miss a rocket launch by boat. There are only very few places in the world you may be able to view a mesmerizing rocket launch. Cape Canaveral FL is one of such places! It is the only place you can watch a rocket launch by boat!
Be sure to bring any friends, family, or loved ones to a launch viewing with Banana River Boat Tours. We’ll ensure you’re delighted while making sure that you are as close as possible to the launch, on the water. Whether you simply wanted to experience something new or if this is something on your bucket-list, the rocket launch viewing experience is a great opportunity to see history in the making.
Since we love watching launches too, we don’t mind super early morning launch tours or late-night rocket launch viewing tours. Captain CJ and his wife Jayne will be out there and we’d love for you to experience history in the making with us.
