Create an everlasting memory by celebrating the life of your loved one at sea.
An attended memorial service allows family and friends to gather and celebrate their loved one as they are laid to rest at sea. Our goal is to eliminate as much stress as possible by customizing each memorial service to meet your specific needs.
We want our vessels to feel like your own. You can bring your own food and drinks aboard. The vessel will be provisioned with bottled water, flowers for the ceremony, and upon request, can have a pre-determined playlist created for you.
The cremated remains will be placed in a beautiful basket lined with tea leaves and covered in flowers, the captain will lower the basket overboard where the family can continue with their desired memorial service.
.Upon boarding the vessel, the captain and crew will be introduced and a brief tour of the vessel & safety precautions will take place.
.You can blue tooth your own music and bring your own food & beverage aboard. Vessel will have waters aboard.
.The Captain will then set out to sea, approximately 3 miles offshore unless a specific location has been arranged. (Other desired locations may have price increase)
.There, the motors will be turned off, and while the vessel is at rest, you can proceed with your desired memorial service.
.The ashes are placed in a basket lined with tea leaves and covered with flower pedals. The captain or deckhand will lower the basket in the ocean to your loved ones final resting place.
.Flowers are provided, and each person receives one to put in the ocean; you are welcome to bring your own in the case of wanting a higher quantity or specific flowers. (Flowers must be real)
.Whether you have a clergy aboard, wish to play your own music, reflect on special memories, or simply sit in silence, the captain will ensure that your requests are met to the best of his/her ability. The captain can accommodate you if a thoughtful disposition or bible passage is requested. The captain has a professional grade camera aboard and is at your service to capture a group photo.
.Upon the ashes being scattered and having time to reflect, the vessel will circle around the sea burial site two times as respectful recognition of the deceased, before heading back into shore.
.The Captain will document the exact Global Position System (GPS) coordinates where the disposition took place. The family will be provided with an official certificate and plaque which states the GPS coordinates. This allows the family to re-visit their loved ones Sea Burial site in the future.
.The certificate and any other material will be received within 14 business days of the memorial
.Average Charter time- 2 Hours, our vessel can hold 6 guests.

“Must say we had a magical memorial for our parents. My sister and I booked a early morning cruise with Kailyn and Capt Kirk to put our parents ashes out to sea. We cruised out to the area in front of Ave C in Redondo Beach and placed them gently into the water with flowers sprinkled all around. We picked this spot because it is right in front of my sister house and on Mother’s Day she sat on the wall by her house and felt good knowing that all was well. Kailyn had coffee, bagels and flowers for us when we arrived. Very sweet and loving. Captain Kirk was very good at running the boat without too many waves. Kirk suggested we look for dolphins. And oh my goodness we found them!!!!!!! A huge pod surrounded the boat and you could almost touch them. Such a memory for both of us and thank you for being with us on that day! ”
