NEPTUNE MEMORIAL REEF™

An underwater tribute that creates life after life

HOW IT WORKS

More families and individuals in the United States are choosing cremation than ever before. Following cremation, it’s important to establish a permanent place of remembrance so that loved ones and future generations will have a beautiful place to visit and reflect.

Memorialization in the Reef is achieved by carefully blending cremated remains with a natural concrete substance, which is then molded and secured within the various artistic structures, complete with an engraved copper plaque.

CHOOSE YOUR REEF PLACEMENT PACKAGE

Placement in the Reef varies depending on the type of feature selected and its location. Families may choose to be present during the mixing process and/or deployment. Even if a friend or family member has already been cremated, you can still choose to have them memorialized in the Reef.

Whether planning for yourself or a loved one, we offer a variety of options to meet your needs, preferences and budget.

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!

Jil Simon

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.
