An Attended Memorial Service aboard the Por Vida allows you to gather and celebrate the life of your 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 and providing you with as much compassion and support as possible.

Attended Memorials allow for max 6 guests, last 2 hours from start to finish, and cost $750.
