Exploration Tower Tours

Exploration Tower
You can enjoy one of the best views along the Space Coast with a visit to Cape Canaveral’s new Exploration Tower. Built in 2013, the curved, sail-like building is a design match with the myriad cruise ships that venture in and out of Port Canaveral, and the viewing platform atop the seven-story structure offers an ideal vantage point for watching the bustle of the port or a NASA rocket launch from Kennedy Space Center, which sits about 10 miles to the north. Exploration Tower also features inside exhibits,  including interactive movies in a two-story auditorium, and a simulator where would-be cruise captains can try their hand at navigating Port Canaveral. 

Practical Info

Exploration Tower sits just off the waterfront in Port Canaveral, right next door to the major cruise ship terminals. Visitors can come any day to explore the exhibits and the view, while rocket-launch viewings only happen on occasion.
