Port Canaveral

Dedicated on November 4th, 1953 Port Canaveral’s first industry was commercial fishing. Then within a few years cargo vessels arrived, filled with oil and newsprint, and by 1958 tanker vessels carrying central Florida’s orange juice made their way to New York.

Cruise traffic began to appear in 1964 with the SS Yarmouth Castle being one of the first few cruise ships in the area. Today almost 4 million tons of cargo moves through the Port each year, and it is home to a major petroleum terminal and tank farm.

The Port Canaveral has played an integral role in the American space program. A Lock dedicated to the movement of rockets was opened in 1965 and was used during the Apollo space program. Segments of the Saturn V moved through this port and NASA contributed significant funds for improvements to the Canaveral Lock that same year, and more recently the Space Shuttle’s external tanks were floated into the Port for each mission.

Mr Nick Gerson has been extremely attentive (even on weekends!) and has been more than willing to take time to answer all my questions. His receptionist (Suzanne) and paralegal (Carla) are courteous, friendly and highly efficient in all matters. Mr Gerson's diligence lead to a very quick resolution of my case. I am more than pleased to recommend you seek him as your attorney. You will not regret you did!! G.I.B.
Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side. I have appreciation for the good service that was given to me and my situation. Thanks. Cales & Mr. Hyde (Carlos Andrés García Jiménez), Google User
