Okaloosa County at present has five LAARS in which they can permit artificial reefs. Two are located just east of the East Pass in
State waters. Only the county can put artificial reefs in these two areas. There are three LAARS in federal waters off of Destin. It
is these three areas that private individual's may place artificial reefs with the proper permitting.  The coordinates  and locations of
these LAARS can be found on the Okaloosa County Resources Divison web page above.
