This service is designed to be a positive experience and to provide peace of mind for everyone involved. Our goal is to guide families and their guests in creating a unique memorial event while providing exceptional service. For those who wish to participate in the ceremony, we have the perfect vessel to accommodate them. On our scheduled date and time, you will simply meet with myself and the crew at the boat to begin your time on the water and get ready to experience a comforting and peaceful day. We will begin our voyage from Carolina Beach, through Carolina Beach Inlet, out 3 miles, to the chosen location – Carolina/Kure Beach and/or Wrightsville Beach.

Upon arrival at the site, we will begin the ceremony.  At this time any prayers, memories and reflections can be shared.  The casting of the basket of cremains will be gently placed in the water with seasonal flowers blanketing your loved one.

Family and Friends are welcome to participate in the ceremony as there will be ample time to celebrate the life of your loved one before returning to shore.  We’ll be glad to discuss any other options with you in order to make this ceremony a fitting occasion for all.

“After this experience, this is what I want done with my ashes!”

– Marvin (Asheville, NC)

“I have kept my husband’s ashes for several years. His last wishes were to
have his ashes scattered at sea. However I did not know the process and
who would do this for me until you came along. Thank you for making the
process so easy for me. A real sense of peace has filled a very empty spot
in my heart.”  – Luanne (NC)
