A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Kevin Jones

Spring has sprung at Sebastian Inlet State Park and we have been enjoying mild temperatures and great beach days for several weeks.  The popular tidal cove on the north side of the park has recently been spruced up and ready for those looking to enjoy great weather mixed with a beautiful view of Sebastian Inlet.

Fishing has been good and the catches are typical for springtime.  Black drum, sheepshead, a few bluefish, and some nice pompano are making anglers happy that are fishing the park’s north jetty.  The pompano fishing has also picked up on the adjacent beaches just to the north and south of the inlet proper.  Also look for whiting, trout, and lookdowns to grace anglers.

Come out and join our knowledgeable Rangers for a different program each Saturday at 1:00 p.m. at the Sebastian Inlet Fishing Museum.  Programs include beach walks, interpretive talks, skills demonstrations, slide presentations, birding tours, and more.

Also on Saturdays will be a “Ranger’s Choice” program.  Topic, time, and meeting place will be announced. 

“Breakfast with a Ranger” dining opportunities will happen at The Inlet Grill & Gift on Sunday mornings at 9 am. 

And don’t forget our series of special park concerts–Night Sounds–scheduled on Friday or Saturday nights once a month near the full of the moon.  Concerts continue through May.

Please call 772-388-2750 for further details, or visit the events and programs pages of this site.

Come out to Sebastian Inlet State Park and experience why Florida State Parks are the Real Florida..
