Ashes At Sea – Our Story
We began our journey as a simple boat hire service for fishing and sea expeditions. That was until someone booked us for a scattering ashes on the water ceremony.
That solemn affair moved us deeply and led us to create a specialized and tailored boat hire service for scattering ashes.
Along the way, we have met many other families who feel that scattering ashes on the water is a most respectful way to say their final goodbyes, and quite often hear that scattering the ashes at sea was the final request of the deceased. Through them, we have heard stories of sailors and merchant navy officials who dedicated their life to sea voyages.
We have met families of fishermen and nature enthusiasts who loved the fresh salty air and the energy of water flowing beneath them. And we have met with many Hindu families and Sikh families where water borne ashes scatterings form an integral part of religious protocol.
We see our services as a way to celebrate their lives and honour them.
It is our privilege to accompany you and your family to carry a loved one's ashes on their final voyage. We promise to ensure that you receive the best care possible when you are aboard.
It is a safe, secure and steady vessel for this momentous occasion.
You will board a purpose-built 11.4 Metre Swiftcat catamaran. Powered by advanced, and environmentally friendly engines. This boat glides in the water, and is equipped with custom-made hydrofoils that are engineered to keep it steady.
