With a rich history, tales of olde Florida and early pioneer settlers who persevered to open a “cut” or an inlet connecting the Indian River Lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean, the Sebastian Inlet District is proud to present "100 Years at Sebastian Inlet: A History of the Sebastian Inlet District." For the first time ever, we are sharing historical photos from the District’s archives, the story and history behind the inlet, and the people who devoted their lives to the endeavor.
Today, Sebastian Inlet is known as a premier fishing, boating, and surfing destination of Florida’s East coast, offering a host of other recreational activities for water sports enthusiasts and naturalists. Bordered on both sides by Sebastian Inlet State Park, one of the most visited parks in the Florida, the inlet supports one of the most biologically diverse estuaries in North America. The inlet is not only vital to the ecological health of the Indian River Lagoon, but it is also an important economic engine for the region with a $200 million annual economic impact as one of five navigable channels that connect the Indian River Lagoon to the Atlantic Ocean.
