What is an Eternal Reef?
An Eternal Reef combines a cremation urn, ash scattering, and burial at sea into one meaningful, permanent environmental tribute to life.
An Eternal Reef is a designed reef made of environmentally-safe cast concrete that is used to create new marine habitats for fish and other forms of sea life. Eternal Reefs takes the cremated remains or “cremains” of an individual and incorporates them into an environmentally-safe cement mixture designed to create artificial reef formations. The Eternal Reefs are then placed in one of our permitted ocean locations selected by the individual, friend or family member.
For families and individuals that choose cremation rather than burial, Eternal Reefs offers a unique memorial option that replaces cremation urns and ash scatterings with a permanent environmental living legacy. Eternal Reefs are permanent additions to the marine environment and serve to help preserve, protect, and enhance the oceans’ health. Presently there are more than 1800 Eternal Reefs placed off the coasts of Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Maryland, New Jersey, Texas and Virginia.
