ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – Southeast Floating Docks, a marina design group and manufacturer of concrete floating docks, is currently building a multi-million dollar; 64-slip marina on Florida’s Harbour Isle, and has also teamed with The Underwater Explorers Society (UNEXSO) to build a new marina on Grand Bahama Island, the company said in a recent press release.
The Harbour Isle marina will include a fire suppression system, sanitation pump out service, electrical, water, cable TV and telephone hook-ups. It is scheduled to be complete and fully operational by the end of May, according to the company.
The Bahamian facility, located at Port Lucaya, required a concrete floating dock system that would let visitors step down into the water and observe the dolphins that are part of UNEXSO’s education and interaction facility, The Dolphin Experience. It is being built in phases, the company said.
Phase I is complete and consists of a platform, located about 3 feet below the surface of the water, that attaches to a square concrete floating dock to allow the visitors to interact with the dolphins. Phase II is currently underway and will consist of six specially designed dolphin pens.
