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.
