Burial At Sea
At Anchors Away Charters, we understand how difficult it is to lose a loved one. Did your loved one enjoy the coastal beaches? Or, was the open ocean meaningful to them? Our burial at sea, will give you and your family a serene and private memorial environment to say your final goodbyes - a touching moment that will be forever embedded in your hearts. Our charter boat can help you scatter ashes at sea for groups of up to six passengers present for the burial at sea. Precise GPS coordinates of the spreading of ashes will be recorded. Biodegradable urns and flower wreaths are allowed and designed to float away from the boat gently. We discourage scattering any non-biodegradable items along with ashes.
Price: Up to 6 passengers - $400.00
Often families cannot venture to sea or attend a scattering ashes at sea memorial service. With our Unattended Service option, let Captain Jeff bring the cremated remains on an ocean voyage for you. Contact Captain Jeff to set up details.
Price: Unattended Service - $250.00
