An Offshore Burial Ceremony

The services of scattering ashes at sea have become more popular in recent years. The act of scattering ash in the ocean is a way to pay your final respects to your loved ones and release their spirits. A number of famous people have scattered their ashes at sea, including John F. Kennedy Jr., Robin Williams, David Bowie, Janis Joplin, and Neil Armstrong. EPA regulation requires that ashes buried at sea be buried at least three nautical miles from land. A funeral director may be required to perform a cremation burial at sea, even though spreading ashes at sea is less strict than burying a full body at sea. Our company will arrange everything for you so you don't have to worry about anything.

WHAT IS THE TRADITIONAL WAY OF SCATTERING ASHES DURING SEA CEREMONIES?

Once the cremation process is completed, the cremation ashes are received and placed in cremation urns. Materials used for these projects should be biodegradable, according to EPA regulations. The use of biodegradable containers and baskets makes it possible for the ashes to be buried at sea. Family and friends of the deceased can ask the captain for guidance if they wish to scatter their ashes in the ocean. Additionally, there is an option to scatter ashes in the ocean without actually dumping them into the ocean. Our cremation ashes can be placed in a biodegradable urn or basket and thrown into the sea if you reside in a seaside city. Flowers and wreaths that decompose into the ground can be used as decorations. While conducting burial services at sea, the captain will recite a line, a poem, or a prayer before starting the ceremony. If you wish, you can also play music during this time.You can let us know if you have other scattering ashes ideas.
