As of 6 p.m. Wednesday, deployment of the expansion of the Navarre Beach near-shore snorkel reef was completed.
Despite rough seas and shallow water earlier in the process, workers from reef-building company Walter Marine were able to place the final modules more than doubling the snorkel reef’s size. Deployment began last week, but sand changes caused a change of plans with 12 of the planned 60 modules not being placed due to depth issues.
