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 ones. In keeping with this tradition, we accommodate all faiths and religions with personalized service and provide a caring, respectful and dignified ashes scattering service of
your loved ones remains to the sea.
We will travel out past the required nautical
mile distance where the memorial ceremony
will take place. During an "Attended Service"
your loved one’s cremated remains will be
sprinkled by family and or friends. Each
service includes an official Burial at Sea
Certificate marking the offshore coordinates of
the decedent’s final resting place. If requested,
an eight bell end of watch blessing ceremony
can be performed by Captain Al Manica while
at the memorial site.
