The reef ball burial system is essentially a home for marine life, which is comprised of a family member’s remains. Human ashes are mixed in with concrete to create an oval or ball-shaped container, which is dropped into the ocean.

Burial choices are templatized for the most part.

Now you can go for a burial option that is a lot more unique and personalized.

The reef ball burial system is essentially a home for marine life, which is comprised of a family member’s remains. Human ashes are mixed in with concrete to create an oval or ball-shaped container.

It is then lowered to the bottom of the ocean. The artificial reef cast works double duty, serving as a memorial for the deceased and a habitat for sea life forms.

The Georgia based company Eternal Reefs partnered with The Reef Ball Foundation to help reduce the impact to the ocean’s natural reef systems which have been drastically reduced in recent years due to natural disasters and pollution.

On the day of the loved one’s memorial, a chartered boat takes friends and family to watch as the ball is placed into the sea.

The reef balls are also customizable.
Hand prints can be casted into the concrete mold and sentimental items or flags can be added.
