Canaveral Tours established in 2017 with Canaveral Wildlife Tours, has expanded to Canaveral Lighthouse Tours in partnership with the Lighthouse Foundation and 45th Space Wing to provide tours to the Lighthouse and Air Force Station starting 2019.
Lifelong residents of Florida and explorers of the outdoors, Gerry and Shelley have spent over 35 years hiking, camping, biking and exploring nature. Canaveral Wildlife Tours was created in 2017 after years of guiding friends and family through the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge, Canaveral National Seashore and Indian River Lagoon. The 10 passenger Mercedes Coach was outfitted with very specific details. The relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, climate controlled for a ‘No Sweat’ experience, multi media for entertaining and informative information and the small group setting so everyone gets to participate.
Partnering with Cape Canaveral Lighthouse Foundation was an easy addition to our business. They loved our Mercedes coach and our small group excursion model. We are able to bring groups to the Lighthouse on weekly tours. We also showcase the beginnings of spaceflight programs and the importance of the 45th Space Wing in spaceflight history and emerging commercial endeavors.
We enjoy hearing stories from our guests who are lifelong Lighthouse enthusiast as well as Spaceflight enthusiast. Guest of all ages, young and those seasoned at heart, have enjoyed joining us to hear and see the rich history Cape Canaveral has to offer.
