    About Us

    Located 3.25 miles east of Key Biscayne in Miami Florida – GPS coordinates N25º 42.036', W80º 05.409' – Neptune Memorial Reef™ 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. The Memorial Reef™ is certified by the Green Burial Council.

    Neptune Reef is an artistic representation of the Lost City of Atlantis, 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 zero to thousands in the first two years.

    Boat activity at the site is active, with families chartering boats or taking their own to snorkel or simply be at the site. Some family members actually become
    scuba-certified, enabling them to visit the site, to see their loved ones and monitor the Reef’s growth.

    Many of our local families dive the Reef on a regular basis to visit their loved ones.

    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.
