Great Experiences

In addition to creating valuable marine habitat, the SWARA reefs have created new opportunities for recreation, research, and more.

  • Snorkeling – Four snorkel reefs at 10–20′ depths ideal for kayak/paddleboard and with public parking and restrooms.
  • Diving – Nine fish/dive reefs at ~60 ft depths ideal for novice to advanced divers.

  • Fishing – Nearshore fishing opportunities have grown exponentially with each new deployment.

The SWARA reefs offer many fun activities and adventures for all ages. The reefs are helping us all learn more about artificial marine habitat and sustainability. Are you ready to visit the SWARA reefs?

Founding Partners

When all of this was just an idea, these wavemakers believed in our vision. They worked beside us and helped us turn the idea into a plan. Then, after SWARA launched operations in earnest in late 2013, they helped turn our plan into a reality. We are forever grateful to our Founding Partners for their invaluable support, guidance, and initiative. Working together, we are Creating Living Reefs for Generations.
