Why we love sunsets at Canaveral National Seashore

Visitors can adventure through the day at the Seashore’s dreamy sprawling beaches, world class fishing, and historical sites. The spectacular sunsets come with a gentle ocean breeze and give travelers the chance to take spectacular “golden hour” photos that perfectly show the warm golden sunshine, ocean breeze, and the relaxing happiness felt on each trip. The sunsets at Canaveral National Seashore are best seen from the lagoon and the most popular way to see the sunsets is from a guided kayak tour.

The most magical experience in Canaveral National Seashore is from the dolphins  that spend their entire lives in the lagoon. There can be over one thousand dolphins in the park at any time but there’s always  200 to 800 common bottlenose dolphins living in Canaveral National Seashore.

Evenings bring about a unique sense of life where you can cruise the lagoon to see the sunsets or thousands of plants and animals. This wild and extraordinary stretch of beach is a blessing for history buffs too. Historical attractions include the remains of colonial Florida, century old buildings from an old Florida ghost town, and ancient Timucuan middens A.K.A Indian mounds, including Turtle Mound – the largest in the world.
