Santa Rosa Island Authority Update

An E-Alert was just received from the SRIA:

Pensacola Pass will Close at 7 p.m

Escambia County officials have confirmed through Unified Command that Captain Steve Poulin, USCG Captain of the Port for Sector Mobile, authorized the closure of Pensacola Pass at 7 p.m. today, June 11. Boom will be deployed across the opening of the pass and the pass will be navigationally restricted during incoming (flood) tide as waters enter Pensacola Bay. The pass will be manned to allow access to necessary vessel traffic.

The pass will reopen during outgoing (ebb) tide as water flows out to the Gulf of Mexico. Skimmers will continue working the night.

The Intracoastal waterways will remain open.


The high tide time for Pensacola Bay entrance tomorrow is 9:37 a.m.

The low tide time for Pensacola Bay entrance tomorrow evening is 9:52 p.m.

You may check out tide times for various locations along the Florida Coast by clicking HERE. On patrol mornings, the first thing I do after the alarm goes off is to check the radar and the tide table.

DJ, I read each and every post you have done one the oil spill and what is happening to Pensacola Beach. Thanks for all the updates, heart-wrenching as it is.
