An honorable scattering of your loved
one's cremated remains.
The MV Carolyn Jane
Ashes scattering or a burial at sea has been a long time honored display of respect for departed loved one's. In keeping with this tradition, we accommodate all faiths and religions with personalized service and provide a caring, respectful and dignified ashes scattering of your loved ones remains to the sea.
We will travel out past the required nautical mile distance where your memorial ceremony will take place. During this ceremony, your loved one’s cremated remains are sprinkled by family and friends. Each service includes an official ship’s parchment sea burial certificate marking the offshore coordinates of the decedent’s final resting place. And if requested, an eight bell end of watch blessing/ceremony can be performed by the Captain while at the memorial site.
OUR BOAT: "The Carolyn Jane" is a large reliable Chris Craft yacht made specifically for offshore excursions and charters. She is a 36 ft. (42ft. LOA) safe, seaworthy vessel with spacious fore & aft decks, a large main salon cabin, sofa, galley, two state rooms, refrigerator, microwave and a private full sized bathroom. She is also equipped with some of the latest navigational electronics and rescue safety equipment including, life jackets, a marine VHF radio and an Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB).
These trips are run by Capt. Al Manica, a licensed U.S.C.G. Captain/Merchant Marine Officer and a PADI Dive Master with over 25 years of professional offshore experience.
