Mullet Creek in Florida

Trip Overview

On the eastern side of the Indian River Lagoon 5 miles north of Sebastian Inlet, Mullet Creek is a series of islands and canals that were dug by the Mosquito Control in the 1950's.

The islands so far have escaped developement due to the State/County purchase several years ago. Mullet Creek and the surrounding islands are home to dolphin who come in the Creek daily to feed on...(you guessed it) mullet. Manatees also frequent the area.

There is a slow speed limit so you shouldn't have to worry about motorboat wakes. River otters, osprey, bald eagles and feeding racoons are common sights.
