Why Choose Cocoa Beach?

Your Vacation Needs a Tune Up

With so many vacations to choose from it’s not always obvious which destination and activities are available for your vacation plans. If you’re tired of the same ole holiday, you might consider Florida’s Cocoa Beach and it’s surrounding area. With so many choices and variety at hand you’ll add depth and diversity to your repertoire and enough choices to make the whole crew happy.

The Beach

World famous for it’s beaches and surf community Cocoa Beach has it’s roots on the east coast as Surf Central for Florida. Afterall eleven time surfing world champion Kelly Slater was born and raised here and there’s even his statue and a street named after him in central CB. The local pier is a landmark sunbathing area where locals gather for gazing at the sunrise and visitors find common ground. Further south you’ll find the Central part of Cocoa Beach near Minuteman Causeway and Coconuts on the Beach. There’s plenty of party atmosphere for the college kids and loads of adult fun too. Venture farther south and some of the more desolate beaches showcase seagulls and shells for beachcombers and searchers.

The Water

West of the barrier island, lies miles of lagoons with vast grass beds and sea life. Manatees, dolphins and even alligators can be witnessed while traveling these waterways by boat of overlooked on the shoreline. You’ll find some of the best fishing for redfish, snook, tarpon and sea trout while angling the inshore waters of the Indian, Banana and Mosquito Lagoons.

If Ocean adventure is what you had in mind remember that the Atlantic is not just for sticking your toes in while sipping your favorite beverage in a beach chair. The fishing and boating is superb here too when the weather’s fare you’ll want to try offshore fishing for sport fish like Mahi Mahi and the local favorite Cobia and Kingfish.

Renting paddleboards, kayaks and surfboards are always a favorite for visitors, but taking a fishing charter or renting a personal watercraft with the family can be an exciting way to spend the day. Don’t forget sailboarding, kite boarding and wakeboards when you look for further watersports.

The Attractions

Cocoa Beach is not just about Dreaming of Jeannies it’s also about Ron Jons Surf Shop and Kennedy Space Center (KSC). Get an education and learn about what’s going on with the United State's Space Program and afterward take a drive on Merritt Island’s Wildlife Refuge and Canaveral National Seashore with beautiful Playalinda Beach and Black Point Drive.

If wildlife is your thing, consider a day at the Brevard Zoo or go way north and hike the trails of the Enchanted Forest near Titusville.

If our local attractions are not enough, there’s Orlando and it’s world famous attractions like Walt Disney World, Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. Other Orlando theme parks include Universal Studio and Seaworld with it’s Marine Park theme. Less than an hour away from Cocoa Beach lies so much for a fun filled day of Attractions, Theme Parks and Educational Opportunities… you’ll never run out of things to do when you visit Cocoa Beach.

A Cruise? Why Not?

Adjacent to Cocoa Beach is Port Canaveral and it’s World Class Cruise Ships. Carnival Cruise Lines, Norwegian and Royal Caribbean complement the Port and Disney even has a few ships that depart on a weekly basis to their very own island theme park in the Bahamas. After spending a few days in Cocoa Beach, why not visit an exotic Caribbean Island like Jamaica, Cozumel, The Bahamas and the Virgin Islands? It’s not too late to get your reservations today and make a three, five or week long trip to a sandy beach with turquoise hued water while you’re getting your tan on...

Fishing Forecast

March - 2018 Fishing Forecast

March of 2017 produced some great inshore fishing for many of the spring breakers that visited Central Florida and took advantage of the Florida Sunshine and outdoors. Spring Break of 2018 should be a great March for vacationers on their Holiday from college and work as they prepare for some action on the Mosquito Lagoon, Indian River and if the winds stay calm enough to even venture offshore out of Port Canaveral. Look for cobia to show up in March if the water temps hover around 70° and the ocean remains calm enough to sight fish for these hard fighting and great tasting coastal fish. If the water temps are a little too cool there will be plenthy of inshore action to keep most anglers busy.

You will not have a better fishing experience anywhere in Florida than with Capt. Richard and his wife Capt. Gina......These two have grown up fishing in the area and are privy to all the sweet fishing spots.....very family oriented and highly motivated to turn the average fishing trip into a exciting adventure packed with not only fish but great memories to share for a lifetime!......I highly recommend Lagooner Fishing Guides and can't wait to get out on the water again with Capt. Richard and introduce my grandson to the sport of fishing! smile emoticon Thanks again for all the good times on the water!
