Final permits have been issued to Santa Rosa Board of County Commissioners for a 1 x 2 mile reef area 1 nautical mile off of Navarre Beach.
A copy of the permit can be viewed along with other permits and official reef related documents on our Plans & Documents page
Plans are also being discussed for a wide dune walkover with a large wash down station accessible from the parking lot of the Gulf Side pavilion in Navarre Beach Marine Park. The walkover and wash down station will accommodate dive, paddle board, kayak and similar equipment making access to and from the beach for such items easier and provide a location for fresh water wash down.
We will be hosting clear bottom kayak gulf reef tours on four days in July and August 9a -12p in Navarre Beach Marine Park.
Dates of tours
July 18 Saturday
July 30 Thursday
August 8 Saturday – Canceled due to weather & surf conditions

We also need volunteers to help sign-in participants, move kayaks to the beach, launch and recover, assist with tours, and at the end we will need volunteers to move the Kayaks back to parking and clean-up. You may also bring your own SUP, Kayak, or other flotation if you like. Extra life jackets and kayaks carts are always useful.
