Scattering of ashes at sea is a low cost alternative to funeral burial. Pacific Ocean burial of cremation remains is accomplished in a dignified manner with prayer or other reading per your request.

Cremated Remains

We provide an economical alternative to scatter cremated human or pet remains at sea. In order to provide the low cost this is not a ride along service. Insurance rates make it prohibitive. You are welcome to watch from shore if you prefer. The service is completed
in a dignified and professional manner and may be handled with prayer or other reading per your request at no additional cost. We take pride in our honesty and integrity.


Our boat the SS Minnow is a 19 foot Century. We operate out of
Bodega Bay, California and also provide service in the northern part of San Francisco Bay. Scatterings are completed normally within ten days of receipt of the remains on a "Weather Permitting" basis. The scattering is handled in concurrence with state and environmental regulations. We are California State licensed (Reg.#575) and inspected annually by the State agency and U.S. Coast Guard. Any accompanying mementos will need to be biodegradable. Video filming of the scattering is also available upon request for an additional $20. We also provide a certificate of the waterway chart with the location (longitude and latitude), date, time, and weather conditions.
