Memorials at Sea will help you plan a respectful memorial and scattering of ashes ceremony. We have a fleet of six boats/yachts, from 18', 31', 40', 44', 53' and 55', which will accommodate 2 to 12 guests, departing from Marina del Rey to all points in Santa Monica Bay. We can help make your memorial on the water a lasting experience for you and for your guests. Do you need something special? Just ask.
We started Memorials at Sea after I had been a yacht charter captain for some years, and noticed that there was an increasing demand for yacht charters specifically for witnessed scattering of ashes. I found I could create a safe and secure floating venue to create an unforgettable memorial and scattering of ashes experience.
Departing from Marina del Rey, CA, we are able to take guests all around Santa Monica Bay, from Malibu through Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica, Venice, and the Bay Cities to Palos Verdes Peninsula.
