The area of the Sebastian Inlet was said to be adored as sacred ground (Locals call them the Icee Indians) many Indian artifacts have been found here over the years, and modern day spiritualists and pagans are very attracted to this area, saying it has energy cleansing properties.
In 1872, Ideas to open the inlet were prompted by Captain David P. Gibson, six efforts were made between 1901 and 1915, sand closing the inlet as soon as it was complete.
In 1924, the inlet was opened at its current location with small levees built to keep it from being closed.
The Inlet had been shut during World War II for protection purposes, as the South Patrick Air Force Base north of Sebastian could be accessed from the lagoon, guarded, hundreds of submarines and war ships are said to be sunken off its coast. It was blasted open again in 1947.
With the occasional stories of Ghost Ships and phantom underwater lights, the area is said to have vibrations of entities and energies, and despite its history throughout WWII, people believe the area’s entities are positive. What really scares people however, is the Inlet’s reputation for its shark population.
