A Word to Define the Experience

What is Deployment?

The Memorial Reef™ is so unique, truly one-of-a-kind, that we need to reinvent words to define the experience. The Memorial Reef™ is part art, part ecological advancement, part memorial. When somebody joins the Reef, they become part of all three. We call that deployment.

Deployment to the Memorial Reef™

The Memorial Reef™ is a man-made reef designed to memorialize those who have passed. Cremated remains are joined with the very materials that create the Reef. Divers deploy a new piece to the Reef, marked by a memorial plaque bearing the name of the deceased along with dates or an epitaph. Families are welcome to participate in the process.

In this manner, a deceased person becomes part of the Reef itself, whether as part of a column or a starfish on the ocean floor. The Reef city allows you to choose among a number of locations for your Memorial, to choose the one that best fits the individual or family. Some families, for example, purchase an entire Reef column so that the family Memorials are together, much like a family might purchase a group of cemetery plots.

Why Do People Choose to Deploy to the Memorial Reef™?

  • To become part of something original
  • To be part of the circle of life in an intimate and meaningful way
  • For a permanent Memorial following cremation
  • To help counter reef destruction by contributing to a new Reef
  • To celebrate a love of the sea
  • As a green burial alternative

The family is welcome to be present during the mixing of the placement and is scheduled at their convenience. They may also help with the mixing, add trinkets or a note to the mix or leave hand prints on the placement.

Family members are welcome to be present during a scattering ceremony or the deployment of a loved one's permanent placement on the Neptune Memorial Reef. This provides the opportunity for family and friends to gather and celebrate the special life of a loved one - and the chance to say goodbye. The Reef crew can assist with chartering a boat as well as scheduling at the family's convenience.
