Depth 30 ft., Profile 4 - 10 ft.

 

 

Windmill Point Reef was established in July 2004. This square reef site is located 1.4 nautical miles north of Windmill Point Light. The center of the reef is marked with a yellow VMRC buoy designated "WP".
Funded with Saltwater Fishing License revenue, 120 reef balls were purchased for this site and deployed. There are two fields of 60 reef balls each, located on the east and west side of the buoy. Immediately east and west of the reef ball deployments are two deployments of 500+ tons each of concrete pipe, donated by Hanson Pipe Company. The deployment of the pipe was also funded with Saltwater Fishing License revenue.
