Scattering of Ashes by Sea Services - America's Burial at Sea Company
Sea Services has been scattering ashes and providing burials at sea for over a decade. Whatever your maritime funeral desire, Sea Services works with you to plan a special event. With facilities and associates in ports throughout the US, Sea Services can meet all your requests. This page describes those Sea Scattering Ashes and Burial at Sea services that we fulfill most often.
Often families cannot venture to sea or attend a scattering ashes at sea memorial service. Our captains bring the cremated remains on an ocean voyage for you. A dignified sea scattering of ashes or burial at sea is performed and documented, with that documentation provided to you. This is our most popular service, with prices beginning at just $195.
While the Captain's Service does not provide for the family or guests to accompany the vessel, specific requests, such as dates or times, special prayers or simple ceremonies are often available. Special planning, however, can add to our costs. Many ports have seasonal demands and schedules vary at different times of the year. You may call us for specific fees at the port of your choice.
Most often, cremated remains are received at Sea Services' home via Registered US Mail, sometimes directly from the funeral home or crematory. For the specific "Three Easy Steps" to a Captain's Service™. Call us anytime with your specific wishes, or just to discuss our services. Sea Services will work hard to accommodate your desires while insuring the best value.
Family Memorial Services
For those families wishing to plan their own memorial voyage, Sea Services provides the vessel and crew, from the port of your choice. You select the time, place and arrangements and invite as many guests as you wish.
We have hundreds of crafts at your service. And we can help you plan every detail of this special memorial. We can even arrange dinners, luncheons and transportation for your group. As your voyage will be a first-time maritime funeral experience for many of your guests, Sea Services will work closely with you to make this a fitting memorial occasion, carefully evaluating your needs and desires to insure a safe, comfortable and memorable day for all.
First-class family services like these vary greatly in every detail. Likewise, their costs also vary considerably. Average costs for a small group range in the $550 to $900 area. Larger groups, special services or trips in the height of the recreational boating season can cost more.
Whether your group is large or small, from one guest to several hundred, Sea Services' carefully chosen captains and crews have the licensing and experience to provide a safe, and most memorable trip.
Scattering of Ashes or Burial at Sea?
The scattering of cremated remains on the sea's surface is timeless tradition -- a chosen funeral custom for thousands of years. Many, however, due to personal, religious or traditional desires, prefer to be placed in a burial urn on the ocean's floor.
Sea Services has developed the Burial at Sea Service that sensitively accomplishes this timeless tradition, while insuring 21st Century protection of the environment. The Sea Services' unique OceanUrn™ begins to gently biodegrade as it descends to the ocean's depths. After several minutes, the OceanUrn™ respectfully deposits the remains in their final resting spot at the ocean's depths.
Available in many designs and colors, the OceanUrn™ may be included with the Captain's Service or the Family Service. Or, if you are planning to perform a burial yourself, an OceanUrn™ is available directly from us, delivered overnight directly to your or your captain's home.
Whether you choose a traditional Sea Scattering or the dignified Burial at Sea with a Sea Services' OceanUrn™, you can be assured that your service will receive our personal attention at any port, off any shore of our nation.
