The goal of this restoration project was to restore a portion of the lost visitor use of Gulf Islands National Seashore (GUIS) caused by the DWH oil spill by providing two 150-passenger ferry vessels for use in Pensacola Bay and for traveling between the City of Pensacola, Pensacola Beach, and the Fort Pickens area of GUIS. The restoration "approach" (from the PDARP/PEIS) is to "enhance public access to natural resources for recreational use" and the "technique" is to "construct recreational infrastructure."
