Rocket Launch Viewing

The Seashore will remain open for launches scheduled to take place during park operating hours. We cannot predict when the park will fill to capacity at which point we will restrict flow into the park for a period of time, for safety purposes. Incoming traffic may close for park safety/capacity. Kennedy Space Center has the authority to close parts of the seashore for Space Center Operations.

Drones are prohibited in all National Parks

Drones make the coolest videos! But they are banned from use here at Canaveral National Seashore by federal law (36 CFR 1.5 to prohibit the launching, landing, or operation of unmanned aircraft). Flying drones in this area can mean much more than getting a pretty video. Being caught flying one can land someone banned from the park. We are a border area for one of the nations biggest rocket launching areas at Kennedy Space Center. It may be viewed as a threat to national security. So please keep them at home. Bring your camera and leave only footprints.

For more information on unmanned aircraft in the park read the Superintendent's Compendium.

Here is a great article that explains in detail why "all" National Parks have banned the use of drones, https://www.nps.gov/…/unmanned-aircraft-in-the-national-par…

Drones can be detected remotely from Kennedy Space Center. https://www.unmannedsystemstechnology.com/…/drone-detectio…/
