Default Navarre Gulf Side Snorkeling/Diving Reef Permited

Gulf Side Permits are done. Sound Side permits should follow. Hopefully we'll get some good weather windows and they will be in the ground before summer.

Where are they going to be placed? My best guess is that it will follow the Florida State regs. If its within 100 yds of a public swimming beach or fishing pier, then no spear fishing for us at these sites.

But this is still great news! I have seen something different every time I hit the local shore dives. I have made some great video from the Park East reefs. Its going to be fun having more places to go when I cant get a crew together to go off-shore.

Thanks to those who made it happen!

On second thought, looking at the plan view of the proposed site, the gulf side reef looks like it will be 339 feet from the MHWL. I wonder what the spearfishing regs will be?

Sorry no fishing on the snorkeling reefs. Diving/snorkeling only. There is a separate project just submitted to NRDA (BP Oil Spill money) for reefs further out in Navarre similar to the nearshore sites in Escambia.

Is there anything we can do to support this project?? We need this for the kayak fisherman in Navarre.

This is awesome news. Can't wait to go check it out. Navarre is a prime location for these kinds of reefs.
