Setting — Sebastian Inlet Marina is a mile and half north of the Inlet on the west side of the ICW. Look for its large storage building, ships' store, and docks that point toward the Indian River spoil islands. The islands offer great anchorages for picnics and a little exploring, sometimes in isolation. Local boaters flock there on weekends to waterski, Jet-Ski, or just hang out.

Marina Notes — *Fixed daily rate. New management in 2002. Designed for smaller boats.The longest slip is 35 ft., and the depth in the entrance at MLW is about 3 ft. Tidal exchange close to the Inlet is wind-driven, so expect some variation in a northerly blow. Boats can be hauled on site with a forklift and placed in wet or dry storage. Anchored boats may use the facilities, an advantage for deeper draft vessels. (H) Temporarily closed. Buildings, docks and bulkhead completely demolished by Frances and Jeanne. Marina is undergoing extensive repairs and rebuilding and expects to be back in business by September 2005.

Notable — The marina offers convenient access to Sebastian Inlet, as beautiful as any on the east coast, with excellent fishing outside and inside on the river flats. There's not much to do on land here, but that's not the point. Look the other way. This close to the Inlet, dolphins, sea birds and other natural wonders abound. An easy boat is the 81-acre Environmental Learning Center which has a dock right on the ICW. Farther south is the Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge, where you'll find a boardwalk and observation tower, two salt marsh impoundment trails (including the Historic Jungle Trail) and restrooms.
