A transportable submerged breakwater is described. The breakwater includes a pair of vertical parallel concrete walls spaced apart from each other. The walls have floatation cells containing buoyant means. The walls have a density slightly less than that of sea water and float in a substantially submerged condition with a top horizontal wall edge at or slightly above the water surface. Rigid members space the walls and rigging means provide tension to hold the walls against the rigid members.
