The beauty of the pristine beaches within the Canaveral National Seashore has provided the location for a variety of films, commercials, and print advertisements. If you’re planning to do any filming or photography involving talent, products, or props in front of a camera, you will need to obtain a filming permit. 

All permit applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and will not normally be issued for areas of high visitation or on weekends.
