A Captain’s Service allows family members who are unable to board the vessel, no longer live by the ocean, or are looking for our most economical option, an opportunity to have their loved ones’ ashes scattered at sea. Our Captain’s Service is unattended by family and friends.

Cremated remains are handled with the utmost care and respect and are scattered within 14 days of the date received. Scatterings will take place within the Santa Monica Bay area.

Our captain and staff are the only ones present at the scattering. Captain’s Services are $250.
