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.

Our family loves a day at the inlet. It is perfect for everyone, particularly smaller children because there are no waves and the water is shallow. The rocks block the area off so that the kids can pretty much go on their own ( depending on age and swimming ability). Climbing on the rocks and searching for creatures is lots... More

I went specifically to check out the swimming cove on the North side. I was kind of disappointed....scruffy grass, seaweed, some trash....water was murky and cold. I know it depends on the weather and water condition..but I prefer the free beaches along A1A. Cost me $4 to get in as a 1 passenger car....but I wasn't impressed with the cove... More

The inlet is amazing, and is shallow enough to be safe and fun for even small children. Add to that up close looks at manatees and dolphins, an awesome pier, gorgeous coastline, camping, biking, and other activities, and it's a great day for the whole family.

We take our boat to Sebastian inlet sand bar the atmosphere is awesome all the boats dropping anchor and partying. The water on most days is clear and the temp is perfect. If you can rent a boat or have one this is the place to be.

This was our second visit. We didn't have our motorhome this time but stopped to picnic and walk the beach with a metal detector. I am happy to report it works. Found two lead fishing weights and several bits of beer cans. One piece of encrusted "treasure" dissolved completely after a few hours in a glass of vinegar.
