Ash Scattering Services

Scattering ashes is a traditional ceremony that can be traced back to our ancient ancestors of the Stone Age. In fact, today 50% of those choosing cremation are now scattering the ashes of loved ones, and the rate grows each year. Scattering ashes continues to be a pure, loving and dignified way to return those who have departed to the earth or water. 

Most States do not require a permit for ocean scattering service at sea; however, make sure you check with your state or discuss the requirements with the Cremation or Funeral Director. The Environmental Protection Agencies (EPAs) request to be notified within (30) days of the scattering services. For more information contact the Environmental Protection Agency listed below:

Our unique and one of a kind Sail Ship Urn, will make your final goodbye a special memory.

Scattering services at sea are done with a personal boat, but for some families, scattering may not be possible due to availability and capability. In these instances, there are professional scattering services that you may contact to make all the arrangement for you and your love ones.

Flowers and wreaths consisting of materials that are readily decomposable in the marine environment may be placed at the burial site.
