Sugar Bowl Shoreline Erosion Control on Pensacola Beach, FL

Several owners in the Sugar Bowl neighborhood of Pensacola Beach hired us to help stop erosion on their shorelines. Loftis Marine constructed these rip rap sections with flush valve openings. These rock sections help dissipate wave energy from storms that would erode the shoreline. They also help to prevent any further erosion by holding sand in.

Our Workflow

Once you have contacted Loftis Marine to do your project, we can handle the whole process from start to finish. Featured below is the City of Gulf Breeze Shoreline Park Deck project from start to finish.

Planning & Estimating

Once you contact us, we will come out to look at your project and give you a free estimate. We can do water depth checks to decide what distance dock you will need. Depending on the project, we also will do aerial imaging to locate any grassbeds as required by permitting agencies.


Loftis Marine permits our projects through all required permitting agencies. We commonly permit thru the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Santa Rosa Island Authority, City of Gulf Breeze Development Review Board, and County Building Departments. Most permitting is done in-house which helps us expedite the whole project.


Fully licensed and insured, Loftis Marine moves forwards with the best quality materials and workmanship available in the Gulf Coast. We take your project very serious and are dedicated to creating an experience for the client to always remember.
