Imagine traveling to an idyllic island style resort without ever having to hop on a plane or spend hours in a car. This is possible thanks to Capt. Hiram’s Resort in Sebastian. Just a short drive from Melbourne, the resort offers guests the chance to experience a tropical paradise without the hassle of traveling a far distance.

Riverfront Hotel
The resort includes a riverfront hotel with private balconies, refrigerators, and mini-suites with wet bar. All the non-smoking rooms are decorated in tropical colors while relaxing river breezes blow in from the private balconies. The King Jacuzzi Riverfront room comes with a comfy king bed, a hot tub for two and a spacious private balcony for a romantic view of the Indian River. Families will love the extra space in mini-suites that also have a kitchenette/wet bar with the awesome perk of having a riverfront private balcony with enough space for the entire family.

Fun for Everyone
The resort’s Adventure Center is the place to plan activities on land and on the water that will excite and entertain beginners and experts, alike.  Rent a boat for a self-guided tour or take advantage of the guided eco-tours of the lagoon. Catch your own dinner on a fishing charter, cruise the river on the River King pontoon boat or kayak the waters for an up-close tour of the curious manatees and wildlife of the Indian River. For adventure-seekers Jet Ski rentals are available. Stand up paddle boards and bike rentals are complimentary for guests staying at the resort.

Fresh Seafood
Like an all-inclusive resort you won’t have to leave for a delicious meal or nightly entertainment. Capt. Hiram’s Restaurant and the Bahamian-style, tiki-themed Sandbar are only steps away.

Surrounded by palm trees, the Sandbar has three full service bars, including an outdoor tiki bar and a sand floor. Nightly live entertainment takes place on two different stages.  Capt. Hiram’s also regularly welcomes national artists and bands such as Bad Fish, Passafire, “American Idol” contestant Kristen O’Connor and The Original Wailers.

The Riverfront Restaurant serves fresh seafood in a casual atmosphere, indoor or out. Conch fritters, fresh oysters, crab cakes, baked crab stuffed flounder are all popular menu items.

If you have luck on your fishing charter, bring your own fish to the restaurant – their cooks will prepare it and serve it right at your table (with the obligatory frozen vacation cocktail, of course.)

Just a Short Drive Away
Special discounted summer packages are available for couples, fishing and boaters, families and adventure seekers. Packages include accommodations and activities like River King cruise.
