An Ash Scattering Burial At Sea Is A Meaningful And Peaceful Way To Say Goodbye.

And if you choose a sunset scattering, you will get to see one of the most magnificent sunsets in the country (weather permitting).

An ash scattering burial at sea ceremony is a unique and special experience. Some say that scattering ashes at sea is a natural and soothing alternative to traditional burials. Scattering ashes at sea can be a way to honor a loved one with family and friends... an activity where everyone can reflect on the person who passed. For some, scattering ashes at sea can represent a release from earthly concerns, a return to nature that allow the spirit to fly free. It might even help those who are grieving to let go of some of their sorrow.
