Setting — About a mile south of Sebastian Inlet on the west bank of the Indian River, Fin's looks east past an island toward the bridge that soars over the Inlet. The landmark has always been the lighted restaurant with the tin roof in the middle of the docks.

Marina Notes — Formerly called Sembler's Marina, this marina began in the 1920s as a local fish camp, and it strives to maintain its tradition as a working dock. Treasure salvors and commercial fishermen tie up here, so restaurant patrons and visiting yachts can hope for a haul of gold or fish on the well-maintained docks by day's end. The marina prides itself on service and the dockmaster will happily transport transients into town for supplies if asked. (H) Jeanne/Frances took out most of the docks which will be rebuilt by the first quarter 2005. Squid Lips Overwater Grill, the new raw bar and restaurant, is fully operational.

Notable — Halfway between Ft. Pierce and Port Canaveral, the Indian River here offers beautiful cruising grounds, both north and south. Bridge clearance at Sebastian Inlet is only 37 ft. at MHW, and the river silts up, so keep to marked channels or seek local knowledge. The state park at the Inlet, reachable by boat, has a small but fascinating museum about the changing lives of local fishermen. About 10 miles inland, not far from a favorite fishing spot at Stick Marsh is Marsh Landing, in what was once the town hall of tiny Fellsmere. Decorated with historic newspapers, the restaurant offers such delights as fried catfish, frog legs and gator.
