Grayton Beach Artificial Reef
South Walton has a new artificial reef, and it is in the shape of a sea turtle!
On Friday, July 10, 2015 the South Walton Artificial Reed Association (SWARA) deployed the first half of 58 artificial reef structures off of Grayton Beach State Park. This is the first of several snorkel and fishing reefs planned that will span across south Walton County.
The reef is constructed with limestone rocks embedded in 5 ft. diameter concrete plates. Each reef boasts a 10″ diameter fiberglass piling sunk deep in the seabed and springing up to a maximum profile height of no more than 10 feet at the deepest water depth, resulting in a minimum authorized depth clearance of -6 feet. The design is geared for snorkelers wanting to enjoy marine life close to shore. Only a few hundred yards off the beach, paddle time to this aquatic establishment is minimal!
