/ 1 / 1

The Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cemetery for scuba divers with gates, pathways, plaques and even benches. Anyone who has always felt connected to scuba diving wants to be memorialized in this graveyard. Actually, it's more of a columbarium because there are only urns. The urns are cemented in, as part of the structure. There is room for a maximum of 125,000 urns. Neptune Memorial was designed by artist Kim Brandell. It covers an area of 56,000 square meters, making it the largest artificial reef in the world. Fishing is prohibited in this area. Divers and snorkelers are welcome.

Particulars

The Neptune Memorial Reef is located just 5 kilometers from Key Biscayne. The site can be reached by boat.

Besides a fascinating structure and a unique memorial site, the Neptune Memorial is also an ecologically interesting place, where death and life go hand in hand.
