The Scattering of Ashes at sea, or Ashes Scattering, of a loved one is becoming increasingly more popular. Especially for families of loved ones that have had an affiliation with the sea during their lives. Whether it be vocational or just recreational. It is the ideal way to carry out their loved ones wishes of having their ashes scattered upon the ocean.
For your loved ones scattering of ashes at sea, we provide an ideally laid out vessel, designed to help you form your circle of remembrance with your immediate family and friends for the ceremony.
This aquatic send off and release of their ashes, to continue on their journey to the end of time on the “tides of the sea”, is a truly heartfelt way to bid your loved one’s farewell.
We can also arrange a celebrant or Coast Guard official to provide a touching service and be of assistance to offer words of comfort and a final prayer or speech, as the ashes of your loved one are released.
Winter on the Sunshine Coast is increasingly becoming seen as the perfect time for these services as the whales that are travelling along the East Coast of Australia from Mid June to late October add a very special element to these already emotion filled services.
Light refreshments and non alcohol drinks are included.
