The Atlas V Launch – Kayak with Rockets in Cocoa Beach!

Saturday, Oct. 31, 2015: Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

What a treat we had today while on the water! The Atlas V rocket took off soaring into the big blue Florida sky from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, at 12:13 pm. Needless to say, the group we had out on the water were psyched to be able to watch a launch from the water in the Indian River Lagoon.
