Visitors are Welcome

The Neptune Memorial Reef is accessible to all. Boat activity at the site is brisk. This unique artificial reef and undersea art is popular among recreational scuba divers, marine biologists, students, researchers, and ecologists. The Reef maintains buoys over the site for boats.

We ask three things of our visitors:

  1. Don’t fish! We are creating an important ecological system. It includes the fish.
  2. Be gentle; help us protect the fragile coral and marine life.
  3. When Reef divers arrive at the site, share the space with them.

Features of the Reef contain cremation ashes and should be respected. Families are welcome to participate in deployments by prior arrangement. Family members have become dive certified to visit the site, visit their loved one’s Memorial, and monitor the progress of the Reef. Local families are known to visit the Reef, and their loved ones, regularly.

If you do not have your own boat with which to visit the Neptune Memorial Reef, please contact one of our area dive shops that visit our Reef daily.
