From Orlando – take 528 (Beachline) to I-95 North.

Drive toward Titusville, FL to the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge. (Please note, this is NOT in Merritt Island, Florida… It is in Titusville, Florida.)

Titusville, Florida is easily accessible from most locations from Interstate 95 (I-95).

Directions from I-95 towards Titusville

  • Take exit 231 toward Oak Hill/Scottsmoor/ FL-54
  • Follow 5A East 1 mile to US1/FL5. Take a left/North on US1/FL5 travel approximately 5 miles till you intersect SR3/Kennedy Parkway on your right. (Marked by the big brown sign for Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge)
  • Take Kennedy Parkway South 8.5 miles till you see the Haulover Canal Drawbridge. Just before the bridge take a right. The road is unmarked. It is a dirt road that winds around. You will follow it about 1 mile.
  • Follow that road along Haulover Canal to the very end. You will see a beach. That is where we will meet and launch the kayaks. Be sure to stop and use the restroom in town before coming out on the Refuge. Unfortunately, there are no facilities at the launch site

We can’t wait to see you there, Team BK Adventure
