Neptune Memorial Reef - Achi Divers
Three miles off the coast of Miami Beach and under about 40 feet of water grows Neptune Memorial Reef, an artificial reef created to facilitate coral expansion in the area and overall ocean health. The reef’s structure, inspired by the lost city of Atlantis, is complete with sunken columns, roadways, and lion statues, making it not only a fantastical dive site, but also home to thousands of different marine creatures, both small and large.

Despite its striking appearance, this reef is more than simply an art installation; it is also the final resting place for many ocean-loving souls. Families can purchase a headstone of sorts, that incorporates their loved one’s ashes into cement molds of marine themed shapes. These cement pieces and a metal placard are then permanently placed on the reef, ready to become a home for a wandering coral polyp in need of a place to land. These placements are not only touching memorials, but also a magnificent way to give back to the ocean and encourage positive environmental stewardship. All are welcome on Neptune Memorial Reef; it is a very popular SCUBA and snorkeling site.
 
What to expect
 
Thanks to its marine protected area listing, the reef is a sanctuary to endangered and threatened species. Once completed, the site will span an impressive 16 acres- a monument large enough to be visible from space!
 
Neptune Memorial Reef is one of a kind. While other memorial reefs may be in the works, the concept has never been implemented on such a large scale before. When the project is finished it will be the largest artificial reef in the world and a wonder for all to see.

“Excellent experience! Arturo was our diving instructor, and he made the whole PADI certification process so much fun. Going in, I was a bit nervous. However, Arturo displayed a total mastery over all scuba related techniques, which really reassured me.

Additionally, he was extremely encouraging and attentive – making sure we all learn while having a good time. I highly recommend working with Achi Divers! You will not regret it!”

 “Had the best time of my life. Mark is an excellent instructor, very patient during my open water diver course. He helped me get over my initial fear in the ocean, kept reassuring me and built my confidence up. I saw sharks, stingrays, barracudas, huge lobsters, jelly fish, a giant green eel, and tons of unique fish. It was amazing to say the least.
Thank you Achi Divers for making this the best birthday ever. Please know, It’s a new shop so all the gear is either new or in like new condition. They practice social distancing. Everyone purchased their own mouthpiece, wore masks on the boat and everything was wiped down afterwards. Always felt completely safe. I’d give ten stars if I could.”
