Gator Dredging

About Us

Gator Dredging staff balances environmental protection with the needs of the boating community and works with the environmental regulatory agencies to obtain the necessary permits or exemptions.

The principals of Gator Dredging—state-certified general contractors' license CGC 1512360—are William Coughlin and Philip Findlay. Experienced in the engineering and dredging fields, they have created a company, founded in 2005, that combines their engineering skills and compassion for the environment to make Florida’s waterways more accessible with canal dredging, slip dredging and dock dredging.

Gator Dredging executes a project from start to finish. From the initial consultation with the property owner through design, permitting, and dredging services, Gator Dredging completes Florida dredging projects in the shortest amount of time.

Our unique and environmentally friendly dredging and dewatering process was developed by Gator Dredging engineers to allow for faster dredging, less disruption, and lower costs for Commercial Dredging, Residential Dredging, Municipal Dredging and Industrial Dredging Projects.
