What Our Clients Say
Add a personal touch
All our burials at sea come with rose petals
that will be lowered into the ocean together with the ashes,
but please feel free to add your personal touch.
$300 for 20 doves
A dove release symbolizes the start of the next journey of a love one en setting them free.
$60 for 10 pcs.
Add a touch of magic to the burial at sea with these biodegradable Chinese lanterns. Especially during a sunset burial this is a truly spiritual sight.
This biodegradable urn will contain the ashes and dissolves after an hour in the ocean. Together with the rose petals this leaves a lasting impression.
To scatter ashes at sea it is best to do it before 12:00 pm, because the water is then the calmest. Alternatively, sunset time can also be smooth.
Our at sea burial services are available seven days a week. Please contact us for pricing and availability.
Our burial at sea / ash scattering service takes about one hour.
Urns are not necessary for an ash scattering. Guests are welcome to bring biodegradable urns to release if they wish.
To perform an ash scattering we need to receive the Los Angeles Disposition of Human Remains Permit. This can be received from the Los Angeles cremation facility or picked up at the Los Angeles Vital Records office by yourself or by request from Los Angeles Yacht Charter. The permit is also available for people from outside of Los Angeles.
