Okaloosa County and the cities of Destin and Valparaiso teamed up to create a Sand Dollar Artificial Reef Complex in 2003. The complex is a set of six patch reefs arranged about 800 feet apart in a hexagonal shape around a center point. The center point is the tugboat, Mohawk Chief. The patch reefs are pre-fabricated concrete fish havens specially constructed for reef building. Both small havens and large havens were constructed so that smaller fish can have an opportunity to reproduce and grow n a haven where large fish cannot reach them.
The Mohawk Chief is a 93-foot tugboat that was sunk on June 23, 2003, by the Okaloosa County Artificial Reef Program. The coordinates given on this page are for the tug. Coordinates for the patch reefs are listed in "Dive This Spot" page.
