Dale’s Marine Construction, Inc. (DMC) is a full service Florida marine contractor specializing in marinas, docks, seawalls, boat lifts, and various marine construction services for private homeowners and commercial businesses, in addition to local, county, state and federal governments.


As one of the Gulf Coast’s largest, most diverse marine contractors, we offer a complete line of waterfront structures and shoreline protection services that can be seen throughout the Northwest Florida panhandle, from Perdido Key to Navarre.


With more than 27 years of experience in marine construction and engineering, we understand the unique challenges of building marine structures in Florida that withstand the elements. Our goal is to eliminate stress from marine installation projects by taking care of customers from the initial stage of permitting through the final phase of clean up, and follow-up service.

How We Build

The marine construction process involves various steps to ensure your structure is completed on time and within budget.


Dales Marine not only gets the project started through proper permitting, but we work with architects, engineers, developers, financial institutions, other contractors, and required officials throughout the building of your dockmarinaseawall, or other marine construction need.

At Dale’s Marine Construction, we are proud of the fact that most of our key employees have been with the company for 10 years or longer!

Dale Hickman, owner of the company, has over 30 years of experience in the marine construction industry. General Manager, Bill Franklin, has 40 years of business management experience and has been with Dale’s Marine for over 13 years. All foreman and field management personnel have been with the company for over 10 years.

We DO NOT sub-contract our projects out. Nothing is more frustrating than hiring an established company to do your work only to have 2 men in a pickup truck show up claiming to be “Worker’s Comp Exempt!” You will always have a team of skilled Dale’s Marine craftsmen working on your project, small or large.

``If it's not worth doing it right, it's not worth doing it at all.``
