Memorial Reefs

There is no better statement of who we are than what we leave behind. For many that enjoyed fishing, diving, boating, or just a general love of the Gulf, a personalized Memorial Reef is the perfect and permanent tribute to celebrate and remember a loved one for hundreds of years to come. The Mexico Beach Artificial Reef Association (MBARA) offers Memorial Reefs that allow families to construct, personalize, and name a reef for their loved one(s). Each Memorial Reef creates a unique ecosystem and provides a permanent and sustainable environment for all marine life.

For families and individuals that choose cremation rather than burial, MBARA Memorial Reefs offer a new memorial option that replaces cremation urns and ash scattering with a permanent environmental living legacy. Expected to last one hundred years, over 150 reefs have been placed off the coast of Mexico Beach, Florida.
