Scattering ashes at sea provides a lasting place where you can always remember your loved one.
Seal in the Sun Charters is honored to offer family and friends of deceased loved ones the chance to spread their ashes in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. As your loved one starts their timeless journey drifting around our planet, they’ll travel with dolphins, fish, whales, turtles and countless other creatures of our seas. Our oceans are a beautiful setting in which to call their final resting place.
The 3-hour charter will depart from the Anclote River in the Tarpon Springs area. We can take a maximum of 6 people. We will go out the required 3 miles and there you can perform your ceremony. You are welcome to play music on our on-board stereo system via auxiliary cord. You can spread ashes directly from an urn or let them float away in a biodegradable container. Real flowers are allowed (no plastic or silk).
Times of your charter can be flexible if available.
If you or your family are unable to attend, Capt. Rob will respectfully conduct the ash scattering memorial service on your behalf. Photos of the ceremony will be emailed to you.
A nautical certificate stating your loved one’s name, date and the longitude and latitude coordinates of the scattering will be mailed to you at no extra charge.
The cost of the 3-hour ash scattering charter is $250.
