Setting — Sebastian River Marina is behind a series of spoil islands on the west side of the ICW a few miles north of Sebastian Inlet. For years, this spot has been marked by the restaurant that sits over the water on the shore side of the long pier. Additional piers form a basin for dockage. A fleet of sportfishing boats docks next to a concrete walkway near the parking lot, with more space along the short docks.

Marina Notes — Besides a 40T Travelift and many yard services, a primary asset here is proximity to the Inlet, whether for a day of fishing or to rest from offshore cruising. The dockmaster has been here for years, and can advise about fishing or repairs as needed. Grand Banks and Sabreline specialists, Sebastian River hosts the area's largest charter fleet. Not all dockage is in the seawall-protected basin, so liveaboards should check before a long layover. Formerly Complete Yacht Services. (H) Jeanne/Frances damaged docks, restaurant and fuel dock. They have fuel, operational heads and limited transient dockage and will respond to VHF hail. The on-site restaurant is currently closed but they intend to rebuild completely by later 2005.

Notable — Summit, an old Florida-style bar and seafood restaurant reopened under new management in 2004 and was then closed by the hurricanes (watch for its next re-opening). Lizzie's Bistro, in the strip mall across the street, is a local favorite for breakfast and lunch. Not much else is within walking distance. The spoil islands, reachable by boat, are wonderful spots for picnicking and relaxation, as is Sebastian Inlet State Park, which offers surfing, birding, tide pools, fishing and a small museum.
