Neptune Society Memorial ReefNeptune Society Cremations – Memorial Underwater Reef

Consider placing your ashes in a perpetual underwater reef.

The Neptune Memorial ReefTM is an awe-inspiring and affordable memorialization option that is a fitting alternative to traditional burial. An enduring habitat for marine life, the Reef is also a reaffirmation of life after life.

From the Neptune Society site:

From the Depths…Life.

Located 3.25 miles east of Key Biscayne in Miami, Florida – GPS coordinates N25º 42.036′, W80º 05.409′ – Neptune Memorial ReefTM is the largest man-made reef ever conceived and, when complete, will have transformed over 16 acres of barren ocean floor. The Neptune Memorial Reef project is environmentally sound and meets the strict guidelines and permitting of the EPA, DERM, NOAA, Florida Fish and Wildlife and the Army Corps of Engineers. And the Neptune Memorial Reef is also a member of the Green Burial Council.

Our completed first phase is a classical re-creation of the Lost City, 40 feet under the sea. These structures have produced a marine habitat to promote coral and marine organism’s growth while creating the ultimate ‘Green Burial’ opportunity. A recent marine study conducted by the Department of Environmental Resource Management concluded that marine life around the Reef has gone from the zero to thousands in two years.

In addition to providing a permanent legacy for those who loved the ocean, the Neptune Memorial Reef is attracting recreational scuba divers, marine biologists, students, researchers and ecologists from all over the world. The Reef is free and accessible to all visitors.
