Recreation at Banana River Aquatic Preserve Quick Topics

The shallow seagrass beds and mangroves support large game fish, making Banana River a popular destination for fishermen. Other recreational uses of the bay include boating, sailboarding, kayaking, duck hunting and bird-watching.

There are no state parks adjacent to Banana River Aquatic Preserve or nearby, but Ulumay Wildlife Sanctuary, operated by Brevard County, offers excellent bird-watching opportunities. Boat ramps at Kiwanis Island Park, Kelly Park, Cocoa Beach Recreational Complex, Banana River Park and Port End Park give access to the lagoon to boaters and kayakers alike.
