A Proud History of Port Canaveral
Port Canaveral has an illustrious past...as an historic participant in the space program, a strategic base for our military, a rising cargo and cruise port and home to many businesses.
The Navy first asked Congress to approve construction of a deepwater port at Canaveral in 1878. However, it took half a century until approval was granted in 1929, and another two decades before the port's potential economic value was recognized fully. Port Canaveral, the major deepwater point of entry for Central Florida, ultimately was constructed for military and commercial purposes. It was dedicated on November 4, 1953.
The first industry here was commercial fishing. Cargo vessels started arriving within a few years, laden with oil and newsprint, and tanker vessels began carrying central Florida's orange juice from here to New York in 1958. By 1966, the cargo tonnage moving through the Port had reached one million tons per year. Click here for the highlights of our Cargo History.
At the same time, Port Canaveral began playing its important role in America's space program. With the nation's premier launch facility at its doorstep, the Port became – and remains today – a critical link in receiving, tracking and retrieving space vehicles and components. Learn more about our Space History.
Our cruise history began in the 1970s when port-of-call ships discovered the attractions of central Florida, and our first homeported cruise ship set sail in 1982. Our first dedicated cruise terminal opened that year and we started the climb to our position today as one of the world's busiest cruise ports with more than 4 million revenue cruise passengers per year. See the highlights of our Cruise History.
Our Foreign Trade Zone was activated in 1989 and all the basic components were in place to build the Port that we have become today. But our history – a steady progression toward being the best at what we do – is still in the making.
