Scattering of Ashes at Sea

The desire to scatter the ashes of a loved one at sea is an ever increasingly popular choice. Many of our clients have chosen this method of final placement of the ashes for various reasons to include love of nature or the seas, being uncomfortable with the idea of a formal cemetery burial, etc.  Additionally, with the growing cost of traditional burial, sea scattering is an affordable, meaningful and a unique way to honor the life of a loved one.

Bay Area Mortuary Services offers the scattering of ashes at sea in the San Francisco Bay Area.  We provide general, unattended scattering services from our own private vessel. Since we have our own vessel we don't have to sub-contract a third party for the scattering.

John Sparrer, the owner of Bay Area Mortuary Services, has served a a volunteer with the U.S. Coast Guard Auxillary since 1998. He handles all details while on the water assuring that the scattering is performed in a dignified and respectful manner.

A beautiful memorial certificate, suitable for framing, that has the date, time and longitude/latitude of the scattering can be made available upon request.

Unattended General Sea Scatter  - $200

NOTE - If a new disposition permit needs to be issued to reflect the Sea Scatter, please add an additional $65.

Has another funeral provider handled the cremation arrangements and you want Bay Area Mortuary Services to handle the scattering for you? No problem!  The price listed above applies whether Bay Area Mortuary handled the cremation or not.
