Port Canaveral, FL – July 7, 2021 - The Canaveral Port Authority is expecting boat trailer parking at Port Canaveral will be in high demand again during the 2021 Federal Atlantic Recreational Red Snapper Season – July 9, 10, and 11, 2021 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) which opens at 12:01 AM on July 9th, and closes at 12:01 AM on July 12th.  
 
As always, boat trailer parking at the Port’s Freddie Patrick Park boat ramps and Rodney S. Ketcham Park boat ramps is free and open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis until capacity is reached. Boaters – at all times – whether parking at these boat ramps or not — can access the ramps to launch their boat and seek parking elsewhere for their vehicle and trailer.
To promote the safety and enjoyment for all, boaters are strongly advised to have a plan before arriving at Port Canaveral. Electronic signs along George King Boulevard will advise arriving boaters if trailer parking at Freddie Patrick Park boat ramps is at capacity. Once the lot is full, boaters will still be able to drop in at Freddie Patrick Park boat ramps, however they will need to seek parking elsewhere for their vehicle and trailer. 

Boaters who drop their boat at any Port Canaveral boat ramp should ensure they have a capable operator on board their vessel to safely move and hold their vessel away from the boat ramp launching area while they seek parking for their vehicle and trailer.

In an effort to accommodate the anticipated parking demand, the Canaveral Port Authority is also offering free boat trailer parking on the front lawn of the Port’s Maritime Center (445 Challenger Road, Cape Canaveral). An electronic sign on George King Boulevard will direct boaters to the special event boat trailer parking entrance.Please note that boaters parking at the Maritime Center are responsible for their own transportation to and from the Freddie Patrick Boat Ramp.
