About Sea Services America's Burial at Sea Company
Captain Gus founded Sea Services 25 years ago in New York, joining a field of only two other sea burial firms which offered ocean services far away in California.
A handful of funeral homes conducted sea burials with unattended ash scattering, as did the Neptune Society, an early provider of cremations offering sea burials as an option.
While other captains ran "side businesses" to sell boat charters, Gus was learning the customs and traditions of sea funerals. Not surprisingly, Sea Services' competitors are long gone and those boat owners who arise from time to time on the Internet quickly learn that serving families' sea burial needs takes expertise and experience that isn't learned by fishing.
Since then, Sea Services has grown into America's leading maritime funeral provider.
Sea Services "wrote the book"
When you browse any other sea burial web site you're probably reading words written by Sea Services. Even the copyrighted Sea Services "authorization form for sea burial" has been copied and presented on-line by countless imitators.
When Sea Services began serving New York's funeral homes, the Internet was still years away. Successful business professionals earned trust by visiting their clients in person. Business was built one customer at a time and that is Sea Services' roots. That is still how we serve families today, with individual, personal service.
No other provider can offer industry references from a quarter century ago. No other provider pre-dates the Internet, where seemingly every fellow with a boat can offer himself as an expert funeral provider.
While Internet funeral "experts" sell every absurdity imaginable, from exploding cannon ball funerals to cremations on the moon, the professionals at Sea Services continue today providing thousands of families with the simple, affordable, timeless tradition of burial at sea.
