Setting — Captain Hiram's is just southwest of a small island on the Indian River, two miles below Sebastian Inlet. Two long piers point out from the marina, with its island-style restaurant and "sand bars," popular watering holes where locals and transients can dig their toes in the sand while imbibing grog and listening to nightly entertainment. The Key West Inn is across the street from the marina, restaurants and bars, and close to Sebastian's riverwalk.

Marina Notes — Once a bare-bones marina and tiny raw bar, Captain Hiram's now includes a full-service restaurant, bars indoors and out, a small playground, a resort-style hotel, and a heated pool (available to marina guests). There's a gift shop and a ships' store downstairs. A large room upstairs, with a view of the river, can now host banquets and meetings. The marina offers a full array of services to transients, and anchored boats may use some facilities if they check with the courteous staff. *Monthly dockage is a $135 minimum. (H) The docks were battered by Frances, then Jeanne. The south docks are being reconfigured with additional slips and will be ready for transients by March 2005. The re-built restaurant, bars and hotel were fully functional at publication.

Notable — This "Key West" style resort is open every day year-round, and the hotel serves continental breakfast daily. Spanish explorers named the nearby river after St. Sebastian, and 11 Spanish galleons loaded with treasure sank in a storm offshore in 1715. Mel Fisher's Treasure Museum, within walking distance, displays artifacts from some of the wrecks, along with methods of recovery and preservation. Fishing charters are available on site. Sebastian Adventures provides personally designed eco-trips to some of the area's finest fish, bird, and wildlife habitats, guided by a local scientist and musician.
