Hi Folks,

Welcome to Sebastian Inlet State Park!

Fishing has been good and the catches are typical for summer.  Mangrove snapper, Spanish mackerel, lookdown, and blue runners are patrolling the jetties.  Anglers using live pilchards and herring for bait are doing best.

While summer days are hot and slow down, it’s the nighttime at Sebastian Inlet State Park that comes alive.  The pristine warm sands of the state park beach see sea turtles returning to their ancient nesting grounds.  These nomadic wanderers of all but the world's coldest seas use the east coast of Florida to fulfill their reproductive bond with the land.  Mother loggerhead, green and leatherback sea turtles deposit their eggs in the warm, incubating sands where they were once hatched many years ago.  And you can witness this age-old event.

Ranger-led nighttime “sea turtle walk” programs take place within the park in June and July.  Reservations are necessary and can be secured at the Friends of Sebastian Inlet State Park website.  Group size is limited, so be flexible and willing to take available slots.  Visit for program and reservation details.

Please call 772-388-2750 for further details or visit our events page. There you will find events listings that include Sunset Kayak Tours, “Dinner on the Deck,” as well as classes to help make you a better Surf Fishing angler!

Enjoy the longer days, great fishing or a stroll along the beach. Resolve yourself to spend more time outdoors. Come out to Sebastian Inlet State Park and experience why Florida State Parks are The Real Florida®.
