Sebastain Inlet State Park
One of Florida's most popular state parks, Sebastain Inlet is a mecca for snook fishing and is easily located on Highway A1A about 15 miles south of Melbourne Beach. When you see the big bridge, you are there. Sebastain Inlet State Park has something for just about everyone. There are hiking trails, paved multiuse trails along the shoreline of the inlet, mountain bike and hiking trails, good snorkeling, diving, great fishing, kayaking, boating, two museums, and a great sand bottom shallow swimming and wading lagoon. Don snorkeling gear and swim along the rocks separating the wading lagoon and the inlet and you will see snapper, sheepshead, and many other small fish species. More experienced snorkelers and divers can find good areas along the rock walls of the inlet itself. (More info on Space Coast Outdoors Snorkeling page.) A boat ramp can be found on the south side on the lagoon. There are two museums on site. The McLarty Treasure Museum tells the story about the Spanish Treasure Fleet of 1715, that wrecked along the Florida southeast coast in that year. The El Capitan was the northernmost shipwreck of the 11 ship fleet that was driven ashore by a massive hurricane in July of 1715 and broke apart on the shallow reefs within a mile of the south jetty. All 11 ships were lost and over 1,000 sailers died. The museum is on the site of the survivors of the El Capitan campground. The Sebastian Fishing Museum tells the history of the area's fishing industry.
