Coastline Memorial Service Price: $1,300.00

OUR LARGE GROUP OPTION

Our Coastline Memorial Service creates a special place onshore that will overlook your loved one’s final resting place at sea. While you remain onshore with your family and friends, our captain will respectfully scatter your loved one’s ashes at sea. Choosing the ocean for your loved one’s final resting place is the perfect tribute for those who built a life in Southern California or for those who simply found peace within the sea.

If you have guests joining on board please see our Attended Memorials process.

BURIAL

The PorVida will fly an orange Coastline Memorial flag alongside your loved one’s custom flag that will display their name.

The captain will gently scatter your loved one’s ashes into the sea. A prayer or blessing can be requested for the captain to recite upon scattering.

All scattering takes place 500 yards offshore.

AFTER BURIAL BOAT

Once your loved one has been laid to rest at sea, the captain will lower the flags to half mast, and the boat will circle around the sea burial site three times in respectful recognition of your loved one.

The captain will log the coordinates.

As long as no passengers are on board, the captain will sound off a signal cannon.

AFTER BURIAL COASTLINE

Once the boat has concluded the service, your rep will be available to take a group photo.

You will be given GPS coordinates of your loved one and an official Scattering At Sea certificate and wallet card.

Your custom plaque will arrive within 2 weeks and all onshore photography is received within 5 days.

WHY DO A COASTLINE MEMORIAL?

UNPREDICTABLE SEAS

Many people are prone to seasickness, get nervous or uncomfortable, or are physically unable to board a vessel. Viewing from the coastline allows you to be safe and comfortable, especially when weather conditions are not ideal.

EVERYONE CAN ATTEND

You can have a much larger party attend the memorial. Viewing from the coastline enables you to be surrounded by all your loved ones rather than be limited to a select few.

Viewings from the coastline are safer and more accessible for children, elderly and handicap individuals.

LESS RISK OF CANCELATION

Memorials at Sea require prime weather conditions, and when the weather is not favorable, memorials are often re-scheduled last minute.

Viewing from the coastline significantly reduces the chance of a postponement as our captains can successfully conduct memorials in less than perfect conditions.

CELEBRATION OF LIFE

Our public and private locations allow families to coordinate a Celebration of Life directly after the viewing.

We can put you in contact with the right representatives at multiple locations located along the coastline who understand the service we provide and ensure that you spend your time focusing on the celebration of your loved.
