Conveniently-situated just one hour from the land of make believe that is Orlando, Cocoa Beach is one of the most famous ocean-side hangouts in the state. Enjoy a day-long tour to the “Space Coast”, courtesy of Florida Dolphin Tours! This excursion gets you away from the mouse for a day of relaxation, sunshine, and laid-back fun that is so quintessentially Florida, and lunch is included! You’ll hit such local hotspots as Ron Jon’s Surf Shop, and the white sands of Cocoa Beach!
Your day will also include a narrated airboat ride through the St. Johns River where you can encounter our “friendly” reptile the Alligator! You will also get to take part in a hands on animal show with snakes, gators, opossums, and yes even a skunk!
The Space Coast spans most of Brevard County on the Atlantic coast, and includes such well-known areas as Titusville, Merritt Island, Melbourne, and of course, Cape Canaveral. The region is named, clearly, for the Kennedy Space Center where NASA famously launches space shuttles that can be seen at launch throughout most of Central Florida.
Cocoa Beach is the area’s main center of beach tourism, and features not only world-class tanning spots, but also some of the state’s best surfing—hence Ron Jon’s famous surfing outpost (more to come on this!). The town boasts nearly 6 miles of waterfront property, and much of the beach is developed with international hotels, restaurants, and tourist attractions.
Florida Dolphin Tours’ Cocoa Beach Day Tour patrons will be able to tour Ron Jon’s Surf Shop—a world-famous haven for surfers and beach-minded travelers. The outpost was built near the East Coast Surfing Hall of Fame in the 1950s, and currently stands as the largest surfing shop in the world. Just as popular as the surf accessories and apparel are the gimmicky and fun t-shirts with the instantly-recognizable Ron Jon’s logo.
Veg out on the beach, and enjoy lunch courtesy of Dolphin Tours! Some people choose to rent a board (take your pick) and get a little surfing action in before continuing with the tour. After you’ve reached your desired level of sun-exposure (hopefully not too crisp), your tour will return you to your start point.
