This gives people a unique way to see a beautiful Space Coast sunrise.

If you live on a canal it’s an easy trip to the water to drop your paddle board or kayak in. This is a peaceful way to paddle out on the water and watch a sunrise while capturing great photos. If not, many local companies offer kayak rentals and tours including Calypso Kayaking and Marine Discovery Center.
