They truly took care of everything related to the remains I highly recommendChelsea T.Chelsea T. ★★★★★ I held a memorial service on one of their yachts, and it was absolutely beautiful! The crew was so very helpful and so professional and yet gave me and my family. The space we needed when we needed it. It was so nice to have the option of a harp player, a bagpipe player, and doves to be released. We did the doves and it was so beautiful. It was more meaningful than I could ever imagine. I highly recommend their first class service to anyone interestedTammy Van H.Tammy Van H. ★★★★★ My family and I chartered a boat through LA Yacht Charter for scattering of our mother’s ashes. Our host, Carlos did a lovely job. He layed out the ashes in a beautiful display prior to the scattering and Captain Nick got us where we needed to be on time. Everything was handled professionally and all was well organized. It was beautiful and meaningful to my whole family and the dove release was also beautiful!Rosalia R.Rosalia R. ★★★★★ My family and I used Los Angeles Yacht Charter for my brothers ash release at sea on his first heavenly birthday. From the start Brit and her husband were incredibly helpful and made arrangements easy. If I could give them more stars I definitely would. The day of services captain Troy along with his crew member were beyond amazing and made such a difficult time peaceful and beautiful. The boat Lady M is beautiful, clean and perfect for any occasion. My family was so grateful we decided to go in this direction it was everything we could have hoped for. We will definitely be back to use services for my brother's future heavenly birthdays. Thank you all again.Jessica G.Jessica G. ★★★★★ Our experience with LA Yacht Charter was wonderful. It was easy to book, and all our questions were answered quickly. They were waiting for us at the appointed time, and our party of 12 even left the dock early. Chaplain Carlos and Captain Nick and the rest of the crew were very kind and respectful, carefully explaining everything that was going to happen. They include some flowers that are spread with the ashes, but we also brought quite a few of our own to toss into the water, which really felt meaningful. We were very pleased with the whole experience. Thank you all!Pat L.Pat L.js_loader
