A Final Resting Place in the Ocean
A memorial at sea and scattering of ashes is something we offer to help you memorialize your loved one. Through personal experience, we understand the difficulty surrounding this time and work closely with our clients to ensure all their wishes are met. Whether you prefer to be on board or watch from shore, we provide a respectful, dignified scattering of ashes off the coast of Myrtle Beach, SC. Following the service and scattering, flowers and wreaths may be placed on the water as a final tribute. The vessel then circles the dispersal site for a final farewell. We record the latitude and longitude coordinates, which are provided to you on a Commemorative Certificate. Memorial services in later years may be arranged with a return trip to the exact location.
