May 26 2013 Fire Island Lighthouse
Dear Sea Services,
I wanted to thank you for the oustanding experience you arranged for us for my father's burial at sea. The boat was pristine, the crew was extraordinary and the overall experience was excellent. We cannot thank you enough. I will forever associate the beautiful lighthouse with my father. Please feel free to use me as a referral to anyone as I am a fairly prominent admiralty lawyer in California. Once again,
October 13th 2012 City Island Bronx, New York
Thank you for arranging our boat out of City Island in the Bronx.
We were lucky to have beautiful weather, and the captain, Paul, and his mate were very helpful. My sister and I are very happy with the way things worked out. We would recommend your company to anyone who wanted to take this approach to disposing of a loved one's ashes.
Sept 2012 Liberty Landing - Liberty State Park NJ / New York Harbor
Dear Donna, We had a memorable Ash scattering event this morning. Capt. Jim was very nice and friendly. The weather was also very pleasant. Our family had a satisfying experience. Thank you very much for arranging this trip at a short notice.
July 2012 Destin, Florida
Donna, thank you. I appreciate so much all you have done for me. I now realize that this has really been a long "wake" for me. You've made it all so much easier to bear. My sincerest best wishes to you.

Dear Donna and Sea Services,
I just wanted to thank you so much for the fine service we received on Saturday, October 8, for my mother's ceremony in Atlantic City. We had spectacular weather. Ken and Cindy were wonderful. We couldn't have asked for a better day or better people to guide our boat. Thanks for helping us carry out my mother's last wishes. It meant a lot to her and to us.
May 4, 2011 Chatham, MA
~On behalf of myself and my son, we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for handling all the details of my husband Terry's burial at sea. The ceremony was so beautiful, comforting and peaceful. The captain was very cordial and accommodating. Could not have done it without you.

March 2011 Sandy Hook, New Jersey
I am sorry it has taken me so long to get in touch with you, but as you know I was sick with caner for the second time. Thanks for the info you sent me on that. I was writing to let you know how perfectly my parents funeral went and how happy I was with everything. Your help and services were great and I really appreciated everything you did for me! The boat was very nice as were the captain and his mate.
Everyone that came was very impressed and I would gladly recommend your company to others.
September 2010 New York City, New York
I just wanted to thank you again for your help in arranging our memorial for my uncle. The suggested readings, some of which I used, were very helpful. Also, the disposable canister was easy to use and transport. We were also very lucky with the weather--that was the day of the tornadoes in Queens, but we returned well before the weather turned bad.
The crew could not have been nicer or more accommodating and they helped us to have a truly lovely and meaningful experience as we distributed my uncle's ashes at sea.
It will be my pleasure to recommend Sea Services.
September 8, 2010 Monetray, California
Just wanted to let you know, everything went wonderfully on Sat in Monterey. There ended up 16 of us plus two newborn babies (our great grandsons). And not one person got sick. Weather was pleasant but cool. Thank you for making the process so easy for me. Thank you again for all your help and I will definitely recommend your service.
June 29, 2010 Arnold, Maryland
Hello! Thank you so much for the wonderful service you provided. It was a great experience. I am sure my mom is smiling in Heaven. Please extend my thank you to Tom as well. He was very pleasant and respectful. The Marina was beautiful and peaceful. What a beautiful day it was!
May 10, 2010 Stewart, Florida
The cruise went beautifully! The inlet was a little choppy, but they did an excellent job taking us out for an unforgettable, touching, “Eternal Cruise” for my Mom & Dad.
The sun was “lighting the way” out the inlet as it was coming up over the Atlantic, and there was a strong breeze. I believe there were 15 of us on board. The captain even gave us the coordinates for their final resting place.
I am so pleased, as were the rest of the family members that went on the cruise, that I’d like to share a few pictures with you. Hope you don’t mind!
Thank you, again, for all the help you provided, and your friendship via email! I would highly recommend that anyone contemplating this type of service contact you, it was more than AWESOME.
I can't express just how fulfilling, how satisfying this closure has been. A real sense of peace has filled a very empty spot in my heart.
My best wishes to you and your parents. Enjoy every precious moment!
Thank you, THANK YOU.....
May 2009 Atlantic City
I just went online to contact you. It was truly awesome and I thank you for all of your assistance. We had a repast at Laguna Grill, a really nice restaurant on the beach at Brigantine. Full length windows and great food. Then we were off to the boat. I didn't know what to expect ahead of time but it turned out to be a real experience. We got tossed about a bit and laughed our heads off a whole lot. It became almost solemn as we dispensed the ashes but we got thrown about and knocked into each other and laughed some more. We said a prayer and our goodbyes with love and I truly felt like we were setting them free and that we had made them both very happy. I really love the both of them and never realized before how much better this is than the usual funeral. Minutes after we dispensed the ashes and 18 red roses the sun set just beautifully right on the water where we had just been. We had a little lightening and when we got back to the dock we just made it to our cars when it started to thunder and rain heavily. We actually had just made it into our cars. It was a pretty remarkable experience and then a full moon popped out. A spiritual and touching event as well as a true celebration of two people I dearly love.
AGAIN, I THANK YOU.
November 2008 New York, Fire Island
Many thanks to you, Captain Gus, and his shipmate for making one of the most difficult times in our lives a memorable experience. The sea scattering service you provided for my mother was carried out with honor and dignity, and Captain Gus went above and beyond, spending the majority of his day on the bay waiting for the right time to fulfill our needs. I intend to recommend Sea Services to anyone who might be interested. There is only one opportunity to say good-bye to a loved one the "right" way, and we certainly made the perfect choice. Thank you so much for your help in doing so.
October 17th 2003 Arnold, Maryland - Scattering of Ashes
To SeaServices, Thank you so much for all your help in arranging my dad’s memorial service. Your guidance along with Don’s patience made it a wonderful day. My family truly appreciates all you did. I though you might enjoy a program of our service
August 10th 2001 Fire Island Long Island New York
Dear Sea Services, It was so nice meeting you! I always imagined you as a regular guy just caring for people and that is what you are. Being there near Fire Island was the high point of my vacation. Thanks, with much affection.
