This is an stunning place, we spent time watching fishermen catching huge fish and generally enjoying the area. The opportunities for watching wildlife were outstanding - we saw Manatee in the ocean, a first for me, even after many trips to the area. We also saw lots of large birds of prey around on the coast. We spent time in... More

We spent a half day at the park. There are two jetties that are great places for fishing and manatee watching. There is a pier under the A1A bridge for more fishing. There is a protected tidal cove for swimming or you can swim in the Atlantic. The beaches are clean and well maintained. There is a very informative fishing... More

We reserved a 19ft Pontoon. The boat stalled as we were leaving and we had to turn back in 10 minutes. The caretaker, Allan, suspected it was the gas pump so he offered us as a make good gesture, a newer pontoon the next day, and he will not charge gas and will give us 4 hours for the price... More

We come to Sevastian Park every year for the same reason. It's clean, informative, inviting..... And we'll run. There is always staff on hand to help educate you on indigenous fish, birds and other wildlife. We have never come here that we haven't seen manatee and or Dolphins. We love Sebastian!

Went snorkeling and canoeing with some friends and my boyfriend.. the water is super clear and absolutely gorgeous. It is $8 per vehicle for the whole day for both sides, but it's absolutely worth it! Tons of tropical fish and beautiful shells! Lots of starfish as well!

Cost $8 dollars but it was worth it. The water is clean and you can see to the bottom. I found lots of shells and seen lots of animals. The fishing from the pier was good.

5 Days in a row, I was the only person on the beach! Can't find that privacy in California. This was my first trip to Florida and my wife and I loved it so much we have decided to make the move there next summer.

This place was awesome. The lagoon is great for swimming, the water is warm and we even got to swim with a manatee that had wandered into the lagoon. You can bring small grills and water floats and stuff. Lots of small fish in the lagoon too.
