Important Reminder about Port Canaveral Boat Ramps and Parking

3/25/2020


 

Port Canaveral boat ramps are open and parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis. All users are reminded to follow the recommendations of the CDC and FL Dept. of Health for social distancing, and the Governor’s Executive Order limiting gatherings of 10 or more people to limit potential spread and exposure to COVID-19 virus.
 
Parking at the Port’s ramps is free.  The parking area has been repaved and re-striped with clearly marked signs directing boaters where to park their vehicles.  When the lot is full, it's full and boaters will need to seek parking elsewhere for their vehicle and trailer.
 
Vehicles and trailers left in unauthorized areas may be subject to ticketing and towing. Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Deputy will be posted at the ramps to ensure vehicles and trailers are parked appropriately. If a vehicle or trailer is blocking traffic, the vehicle and trailer will be towed to an appropriate parking space at the cost of the vehicle owner. 
 
Boaters, whether or not parking at the  Port’s ramps, may access the ramps to drop their boat and tackle. Boaters who drop their boat at any Port Canaveral boat ramp should ensure they have a capable operator on board the vessel to safely move and hold the vessel away from the boat ramp launching area while they seek parking for their vehicle and trailer.
