Love the Sebastian Inlet. Very interesting to see the difference in the water while walking down the pier. All the pelicans waiting for the right time to find them an easy snack!

Nice jetty, tidal pools, and plenty of parking. Benches along the inlet are great to sit and watch the boats coming and going. Pelicans are always nearby to feast on the fishing.

We met our fishing guide at the boat ramp one morning for a half-day of fishing. The park is well maintained; there are plenty of parking spaces, and the restrooms were quite clean. Everything worked out just great.
