TESTIMONIALS

Robert Brach

Michael at Neptune was extremely patient and knowledgeable, as I contacted him several times with questions and concerns. He made sure I had a clear understanding of the process, the packages and all the options available and helped guide me through things--making the best choices for me. He is a true professional and always returns call promptly. I encourage others to look into this special way to make your final arrangements--he was a pleasure to work with!

Neptune Memorial Reef is a very unique dive site, and it has to be one of most healthy and prolific reefs I have been on in South Florida. It's a beautiful way to memorialize a loved one in such a peaceful and serene setting.

Maria Raines

I am so happy the funeral home told me about Neptune’s! It’s such a beautiful spot to have my dads ashes spread. They documented the releasing with many lovely pictures that I felt I was right there with him when he went. Thank you for such a wonderful way to memorialize our loved ones! I am putting this as my final resting place in my will also.
