I take it port Canaveral is your destination
, you aren't simply asking what is the best way to clear the shoals off of Cape Canaveral. If this is correct I suggest you ride the gulf stream
to somewhere just north of Ft. Pierce and then start angling in towards port Canaveral. Definitely start this before you reach Sebastian inlet. North of Ft. Pierce the Gulf Stream is so far off shore that getting in from the gulf stream to Port Canaveral offsets any speed boost from the stream. The eastern edge of the gulf stream is normally about 14 miles east of Ft Pierce and almost 30 east of Port Canaveral.
