BURIAL AT SEA
BURIAL AT SEA 2 hours / $300 for captain and boat up to six persons
Burial at Sea is a tradition that dates back thousands of years. During this difficult time, ash scattering at sea can be a beautiful way to send your loved one on their next journey. Your captain conducts a dignified and caring service for family and friends onboard one of our safe, dry, and comfortable 26 foot catamaran powerboats. We take a leisurely cruise out to Charlotte Harbour through Jug Creek. It is not uncommon for the bottlenose dolphin to join us. There are always pelican and osprey flying nearby. It gives family and friends an opportunity to be in a peaceful natural environment. We ask that you bring flowers to release into the water after the scattering of your Loved One’s ashes. In this way, we can see which way the current is moving. We traditionally do a circle of life around the flowers with the boat and give you the coordinates.
