We are a local chapter of the International Propeller Club of the United States, a business network dedicated to the promotion of the maritime industry, commerce, and global trade. Our club brings together the Port Canaveral and Central Florida maritime community by holding monthly luncheons that feature guest speakers. Three months of the year, April, July, and December, we hold special events instead of the luncheon.
The club gives back to the community through support for the Canaveral Port Ministry, Cape Canaveral Lighthouse Foundation, Keep Brevard Beautiful, Port Canaveral Maritime Day Commemoration and July Fireworks, Rockledge High School HELM Maritime Studies program, Scholarships for maritime industry students and the Sea Cadets. We invite anyone in our Port Canaveral and Central Florida communities interested in joining the club to contact us for more information or click on the "Membership" tab to join.
The mission of the Propeller Club of Port Canaveral is to serve the Central Florida maritime community and to ensure that Port Canaveral remains a world leader in maritime commerce while promoting a healthy marine environment.
