The Neptune Memorial Reef



A new underwater memorial reef set to open off the coast of Florida is part of an emerging trend for offbeat burials, sending people to new frontiers after they die, from outer space down to the ocean floor.

The man-made reef—the world’s largest—will offer room for the remains of up to 125,000 individuals, said Jerry Norman, CEO of The Neptune Society, the group responsible for creating the revolutionary resting place.

“The Neptune Memorial Reef provides a natural setting for loved ones that is also a awe-inspiring destination where family can gather and enjoy,” Norman said.


Covering an area of 16 acres just more than 3 miles off the coast of Miami, the reef is a whimsical re-creation of a lost city, complete with columns, roads and city gates. Individuals who choose an interment there—The Neptune Society calls it a “placement”—are cremated and placed in various parts of the structure. A simple placement costs about $1,500, while a spot inside the body of a majestic bronze lion runs the price up by several thousand dollars.

Me, they can sew up in me hammock, with a 9-pound shot at me feet, and the last stitch through me nose.

    Art lovers and enthusiasts should always put a stop in Patan of their
    Nepalese trip itinerary. Patan may be the oldest city within the
    Ksthmandu valley and is the home for Nepalese architecture, arts,
    traditions, and crafts drawing mainly from religious customs.

    I have realized this website that provides free
    downloads of movie torrents at virtually no cost.
