Family Attended Service

A family attended burial at sea offers family and loved ones the option to view ash scattering services aboard our beautiful and accommodating 50' sailing catamaran, Arabella.  The vessel has bench seating on both sides as well as the back of the boat and net seating with room to occommodate anywhere from 2 to 48 passengers.  She has a galley below deck for storing and preparing food and coolers for holding beverages.  There is also a stereo system with music selections and bluetooth capability.

With our family attended burial at sea service, the entire ship is reserved for your group only.  Your family and friends will depart from our dock in Ponce Inlet and motor/sail approximately 3 miles offshore.  The vessel glides through the water at about 10 miles per hour and should be at the proper location within 30 minutes.  Once your vessel reaches the destination, the Captain will note the ship's coordinates and the scattering of the cremated remains can be performed.

After the burial at sea service is complete, Arabella will make its way back to Ponce Inlet and can retur to dock or stay out for an extended period, cruising the serene intracoastal waterways of New Smyrna Beach and Ponce Inlet.  This is a great time to share memories and stories with family & friends while you take in the amazing coast in all its glory.

A STANDARD BURIAL AT SEA LASTS APPROXIMATELY 1 1/2 HOURS, BUT CAN BE EXTENDED.

All aspects of the service can be customized to suit the families needs.

Unattended Service

The unattended burial at sea is the most economical, dignified option for families who are unable to be present for the scattering services . Ashes are taken to a pre-selected area three miles off shore where they are spread upon the Atlantic Ocean. The location of the scattering is marked with longitude and latitude coordinates, allowing for a revisiting if desired.  Our unattended burial at sea services option gives family and loved ones that cannot be physically present for the burial at sea service, a means to provide a peaceful interment. Cremated remains are received and handled in a professional and respectful manner. Arrangements for transport can be made at the United States Postal Service.

Unattended Ceremony price $195.00

Wreaths & Flowers
A biodegradable wreath is 100% eco friendly and also visually appealing. Urns can be placed directly inside the wreath as they both float away from the boat, and the urn eventually sinks. You can buy a wreath on-line or make your own. If you’re spreading ashes, adding flower petals will enable you to visually follow the ash flow.
