Reef is deployed

Reefs are placed in over fished areas where they are needed most and barren sea floors where habitats are needed.


Preserve cremation

Cremated remains are eternally preserved within a scientifically engineered artificial reef designed to be forever permanent and vital to the success of this marine habitat rehabilitation project


Marine life flourishes

Not long after the reef is installed onto the sea floor a beautiful and natural transformation occurs.  The reef begins to grow and bloom with life as  hundreds of species of marine life attach themselves to the reef.


Reefs are handcrafted with care

Reefs are individually hand crafted using natural sea shells, sand, ash, and a bit of ocean friendly concrete. After a thirty day curing period the reefs are loaded onto boats for the journey to the deployment area, weather permitting.


Cherish and remember

Cherish and celebrate your loved one, knowing that they will continue on by giving back to the ocean for eternity.

Together we can create something great.
