Whether it is in celebration of an affinity with the sea, a nautical background or just the love of our natural environment, a scattering of ashes ceremony at sea is a tranquil way to return to nature in peace.
How does it work?
We will cruise to a selected destination where you will be able to scatter the ashes and say your farewells. On arrival, we will note and log for you the exact location with our GPS identifying the place the ashes were scattered giving you the opportunity to re-visit at a later date.
On arrival, the vessel motors’ will be turned off to allow us to float in peace. If you’ve chosen a favourite song, the music will be played during the ceremony. You may wish to scatter the ashes directly on the water with perhaps some rose petals and watch them gently disappear into the distance, or cast a wreath if you prefer. If you wish, bid farewell by placing the ashes into a special bio-degradable urn that we can supply so the ashes will lay to rest on the sea bed and in time drift away. Friends, family and guests may all wish to throw a flower into the water with the ashes as you say a silent prayer of farewell.
If you prefer, you are welcome to bring a parish priest or celebrant to perform the duty of the ashes scattering on the water.
