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.
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.
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.
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...

May - 2017 Fishing Report
May - 2017 Fishing Forecast
May in Central Florida is the beginning of great things for people looking toward an ocean fishing trip looking for fast action. King Mackerel, Cobia and even a few tarpon start to make a showing as May develops into a more summer like pattern. Inshore the fishing can be productive for early morning and evening anglers as the sun warms the gin clear waters of the Mosquito Lagoon and the Banana Rivers. Both Redfish and Spotted Sea Trout will be a popular gamefish that even the youngest anglers will appreciate and enjoy. Bring plenty of sunscreen, some polarized sunglasses and broadbill hat as the Florida sunshine will penetrate the most protected boating endeavors. May is the beginning of the summer in Florida as far as the temperatures are concerned, but there's often an afternoon shower, so be prepared to fish early and get off the water before the afternoon storms roll in. So remember, inshore fishing and offshore fishing are an equal opportunity in May in Central Florida.

I have been honored to share a boat with Captain Richard more than once. He and Captain Gina are fantastic people, kind, courteous, and extremely knowledgeable. I have been blessed to fish from Canada to Florida and I can give Lagooner Fishing Charters the highest of praise and I look forward to fishing with them multiple times in the future!
