• Cremation Memorial Cruises​​
Many families have their own meaning or significance in the
scattering of cremains.  When you release your loved one's
cremains into the ocean, you're not saying just one thing.
You're "letting go", creating that "special place of memory"
and "celebrating their freedom."

“Attended” Memorial Cruise
Vessel's home port - Ponce Inlet, Florida
Additional service ports
