The Canaveral National Seashore Park includes beaches, the Turtle Mound, a welcome center with a 15 minute video, and nature tours. The Turtle Mound is actually a hillside made of shells constructed by Indians hundreds of years ago. The name derived from its humped appearance. The beach is pleasant and facilities are available. We took the two hour long pontoon... More

Driving from Blue Springs State Park where there were tight crowds viewing manatees (there were plenty), we arrived at the Ranger gate about 1230 pm. No line there. Enjoying history, my wife and I stopped at the Turtle Mound. Good views from the board walk path. Informative signs. Moving on to the beach, I always like being away from others,... More

Love walking this beach, uncrowded, lovely sunrise and really wonderful helpful park rangers. Do not miss Endora House and the turtle mound ruins. Great relaxing and interesting way to enjoy your time

We took the two hour boat tour with a naturalist on the inner bay. Lots of birds to see and great scenery. Also saw lots of dolphins playing in the water. Cost was $10 for seniors with Golden Age passport.

You are entering a National Park so if you have a pass or 62+ get a lifetime $10 pass to use at any National Park (pay at the ranger check point). Lots of armadillos and turtles as you drive down the 35 MPH zone, which is now being enforced by the rangers. I have seen laser/radar used twice this week.... More

During a recent visit to New Smyrna Beach we actually spent Thanksgiving Day on Apollo Beach -- & saw a rainbow over the ocean! Beautiful beaches (there are 4 or 5 options), very helpful staff at the Visitor Center, easy to access beach. Also enjoyed the Turtle Mound deck paths? great views!

There is a fee if you don't have a pass. Not sure what the day fee is but an annual pass is $35 for residents and $ 10 for Seniors. I just moved down in June and Ive been going at least once to twice a week. You have the intercostal on your right and Atlantic Ocean to your left!... More
