New Las Gatas Pier

Big difference. Floating piers are designed to move up and down with the tides. But they don’t fare well with horizontal ocean surge. Las Gatas is pretty protected by the surrounding reef. For the main pier to survive the periodic tropical surges that enter the bay a large breakwater would need to be layed. . I don’t believe that would go over well with environmentalists. Without a breakwater a floating main pier would likely not survive more than a couple seasons.
