The fact that we are all going to die one day is not something that I like to think about at all. For me, it is such an unlikely thing, which I rarely consider my mortality, or even worse, that of my loved ones.
In the rare occasion, I think about the remote possibility of me going to die one far away day in the far away future; I have this romantic idea about just not returning from a dive, quietly slipping away into the nothingness, possibly accompanied by a dolphin (Think Jean-Marc Barr as Jacques Mayol in “The Big Blue”). So went the dream, before I came across this even better option!
Located about 3.25 miles off the coast of Key Biscayne in Florida you will find Neptune Memorial Reef which is truly an underwater world like no other. This underwater cemetery is a unique spot that you could make your final resting place one day.
Besides an underwater graveyard The Neptune Memorial Reef is also an artificial reef system that will continue to flourish and provides a vital habitat for marine wildlife in the area.
Covering over 600,000 square feet, at a depth of 40 feet, it is also the largest artificial reef in the world and plans to expand the reef from half of an acre to 16 acres are already underway. The idea of being part of such a large living organism after my death gives me great pleasure!
