What to Do on Merritt Island

by | Sep 16, 2021 | Merritt Island

Located in Brevard County, Florida, Merritt Island is one of the most happening Islands in the region. Perfect for families, honeymooners, or even solo travelers, this place offers endless entertainment opportunities. Whether you’re interested in scientific theories, sports, or just looking for a relaxing retreat, Merritt Island is the place to be in 2021! If you’re planning a trip to the island, here are a few things that you should not miss out on:

1.    NASA Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex

This is one of the most popular tourist spots on the island. This space center promises an out-of-this-planet adventure, quite literally! You can meet NASA astronauts, examine a moon rock, learn more about space shuttles, tour a NASA spaceflight, and so much. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? Well, the thrill and excitement doubled when you experience it for yourself. It’s best to reach the center early morning (9 am), so you can enjoy the entire day and cover all spots. Be sure to get your tickets beforehand for a hassle-free process.

2.    Full Moon & Sunset Kayaking Tours

Now that we’re talking about the moon and thrilling experiences, another item to add to your to-do list is a full moon and sunset kayaking tour. These tours leave around sunset time and last for about 90-120 minutes. Witnessing a glorious sunset in anticipation of a full moon is the perfect way to end the day. If you’re lucky, you’ll even spot some bottle-nose dolphins and different birds in their natural habitat!

3.    Bioluminescence & Comb Jelly Kayak Tours

If you enjoy kayaking, then our jelly cone tour is something that you’ll find out of this world. This tour is mostly carried out during the peak summer season, so now is the best time. You’ll get a chance to experience wondrous jelly cones that glow in the dark! No matter how many pictures you see online, seeing them live is an experience of its own!

We’ve been in the business for several years and our kayaks embark from different locations, including Thousand Islands, Ramp Road Park and Cocoa Island. At Adventure Kayak, we’re known for our adventure tours and bioluminescence tour in Cocoa Beach and Merritt Island. Don’t wait any longer; plan a weekend getaway at Merritt Island and enjoy your time there!
