“Attended” Memorial Cruise

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 goodbye. 
You're "letting go", creating that "special place of memory"  and "celebrating your loved one's freedom." 
Dignity at Sea also understands that many of our families choose to consider ecological
values (Biodegradable/Green Urns) when making their end-of-life arrangements.  
Green burial is just yet another example of our dedication to accommodating the requests
and diversity of the families we are honored to serve.
