Welcome to Sebastian, home of Pelican Island. Located along the beautiful Indian River Lagoon, Sebastian offers many types of recreation including deep sea fishing, surfing, swimming, eco-tours and golf or just relaxing in our "old Florida" atmosphere.
The centerpiece of Sebastian tourism is the Indian River Drive along the Lagoon. There you will find many different restaurants, resorts, river/lagoon eco-tours, and fishing charters.
Also located along Sebastian's Indian River Drive on the Indian River Lagoon is the Sebastian "Working Waterfront". This two acre property represents a public/private partnership between the City of Sebastian and Fisherman's Landing Sebastian, a group of local commercial fishermen who have formed a non-profit working waterfront organization. The vision of this project is to link several parcels together to educate the public about commercial fishing heritage of Sebastian through a Community Trust that awarded more than $3.1 million in Florida Forever funds for the acquisition. The City of Sebastian has contributed more than $750,000 in local funds to complete the acquisition and rebuild of the properties.
As of August 2015, the main building, commonly known as "Hurricane Harbor" has been rebuillt. A retail-wholesale fish market is in operation in the building along with an Eatery. The Eatery features locally caught seafood. Also, located in teh main building is a fishing museum dedicated to Sebastian's history as a major fishing port in the past. The museum was opened in June 2015.
Construction is scheduled to start in August 2015 on a new Fish House located on the main fishermen’s dock. Funds are being sought to build Phase 3 of the project that includes an Icehouse, viewing pond and seashore restoration.
