With our process for interring your lost loved one, marine life will quickly become attracted to the structure. Tiny animals called “polyps” will attach to the exterior of your memorial. Over time those polyps become coral structures, which combine to create reefs that flourish with new life.

Step 2: Personalized Vision

We construct a one-of-a-kind, personalized memorial with important themes or photograph renderings of your choice. Learn more about our eco-friendly memorial materials here.

Your loved one’s ashes, as well as the ashes of another loved one, pet ashes, important mementos, and other small keepsakes, are encapsulated in the memorial’s permanently-sealed concrete vault.

All memorials come with a professional-grade photograph in a setting of your choice before they are deployed at sea.

Step 3: Deployment & Free Charter

Your loved one’s memorial is brought to the sea floor on our barge and peacefully lowered into the water. You and your family will be taken to the location via complementary charter at a time & date of your choosing.

Each underwater memorial includes a Captain Certificate with:

  • Time & date of deployment
  • GPS coordinates with latitude, longitude, and depth
  • Official Guardian Memorial Reefs seal
