The scattering of ashes at sea is the highlight of our Burial at Sea service. This act is a sea tradition to return your loved ones remains to the ocean, peacefully and serenely. Honor and remember your departed loved ones with our scattering of ashes at sea and funeral services.
Family and friends will board Paradiso at our dock in Newport Harbor and will cruise out of the harbor to a serene location in the open ocean, approximately one mile off the shore. There the Captain will do a brief reading. The family and guests may say anything they wish to include to honor their loved one.
Next, the ashes will be scattered into the ocean and guests will lay their flowers on the water. After the ceremony, we will return to the harbor. You will receive a certificate with the exact longitude and latitude of the location where your loved one was scattered.
A rose for each guest, coffee and soft drinks are included. The service lasts approximately two hours and the option to extend is available. Special requests and services during the ceremony can be accommodated.
We also offer the following services to add to your ceremony:
Paradiso’s crew is licensed by the state of California to perform the scattering of ashes service. Our Scattering of Ashes at Sea service areas include: Newport Beach, Los Angeles, Long Beach, Laguna Beach, Dana Point, and San Diego.
