Restrictions during Cape Canaveral launches
 
Moving a boat from Ft Pierce to Mayport near the end of the month, planning on going outside. There is a SpacEx launch about every 3 days.

Does anyone know the rules on general restrictions and/or special restrictions during launches?

Having trouble making sense of the info online.

Have you subscribed to the districts Local Notices to Mariners? They usually have details on what they're expecting from vessels and how to find more info.

Little bit of an exaggeration there - SpaceX launch on average about every 14 days.

Notice to mariners is your friend. They will let you know when and where the exclusion zones are. Be aware that launches can slip by days due to the weather in Florida, especially in the Summer months.

Minoring channel 16 probably will give up to minute info on current exclusion zone activity..

LNM are good for the upcoming week, but they're time late when there are changes. I've found keeping track of the NGA NAVAREA IV navigation warnings is the best way to know when the restricted/safety areas are up. You can either click on the daily memorandum section of their site, or (if you're a Space Coast local like me) just subscribe to the navigational warnings. Yes, NAVAREA IV is large, and you'll get stuff you don't need, but it's easy to delete an email (typically three or four a day). As mentioned above, CH 16 always.
