The 8-mile journey on the Canaveral Barge Canal leads from the ICW to the Atlantic Ocean at the Port Canaveral Inlet, a well-marked, deep ship inlet. The route includes a 3-mile cut through Merritt Island.
The cut is very scenic with beautiful natural flora and an abundance of marine and wildlife. If you have some time this interesting side trip leads right into the Canaveral launch facilities and is worth the effort.
