Memorial Stone Creation & Placement
This popular service is a wonderful way to keep your loved one in touch with the environment they once loved. Our memorial reef is located in the Gulf of Mexico West of Pinellas County.
Memorial reefs are man made memorial stones placed on the ocean floor, in a design that resembles an underwater reef system. Cremated remains are mixed with concrete and poured into a mold. Once the mold is complete, the memorial stone is sunk to the bottom of the ocean to create an artificial reef. Depending on the wishes of the deceased or the family, the container may be left unadorned, simply personalized with the name and dates of birth and death, or have a bronze memorial plaque permanently attached.
Once the monument is installed on the ocean floor, it remains there in perpetuity as a memorial to the deceased. Over the next few years, the concrete memorial stone undergoes a transformation as the new reef attracts ocean life to itself, and provides a home for creatures to live, feed, and reproduce, just like a natural reef.
We offer several options for families who live locally or at a distance. Included in your package is a memorial video of the placement, topside dedication service, GPS coordinates and location certificate.
Some packages include options for the family to be present at the time of placement. We offer charters to visit the site topside and dives for underwater visits.
