Burial At Sea

Sea Scattering AshesThe Lois Ann is ready to honor your loved one with our custom and private Burial at Sea services. We are ideally-located to quickly and comfortably shepherd you and your group out to the serene offshore waters of the Gulfstream to sprinkle the ashes of your loved one at sea. Nothing can bring you the peace and satisfaction better than saying farewell on the sapphire-blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Our Fleet of comfortable and seaworthy vessels can accommodate parties from one to 75 people. We at Lady Pamela can help you create the service of your choosing, including prayer services. Our Captain and Crew are prepared to help you every step of the way, including the recital of prayers that mariners have used for centuries. We all take great care to be respectful and supportive in this somber yet hopeful time.

We offer tow (3) Burial at Sea packages. We also offer a package whereby one of our captains can perform the Burial at Sea on your behalf, which includes a memorial certificate and picture of the ashes being scattered. Please call for details.

Burials at Sea

Small Group Burial at Sea Charter (Up to 6 People)

Our vessels are perfectly-suited for groups of 1 to 6 people. Our vessels transport you in air-conditioned comfort as well as room up on the bridge for you to gather your thoughts in the tropical sea breezes.

Our typical service begins with you party gathering at the stern to conduct a service and/or say a few words. During those times where words fail you, our Captains are ready to step in with the words of mariners from ages past. You will then scatter the ashes into the water. Members of your party can also add flowers, notes and floating mementos to honor your loved one. After you’ve said your farewells, our Captain will honor your loved one by circling the area before returning to dock. Music often connects us to each other. As such, we recommend that you bring along your loved-one’s favorite music as our Captain will play it over the custom sound system to help your group cherish their particular memories.

Small Group Burial at Sea Charter Includes:

  • Two (2) hour charter
  • Captain and crew to assist with your service
  • Coolers and ice for any food or drinks that you bring aboard
  • Additional services such as clergy, photography, catering and event planning are available upon request.

Large Group Burial at Sea Charter (7 – 60 People): 

The Lois Ann is 65 feet long and is ideally-suited for your Burial at Sea if your group is 7 or more people, up to 60 people. The Lois Ann features a spacious, air-conditioned cabin with plenty of seating and tables for food and drinks. The cabin has enough room for your party to set up pictures, posters and even an audio/video system that can accommodate memorial videos or slideshows.

As with our Small Group Burial services, all will gather at the stern or down the flanks of the vessel to witness the service, the scattering of ashes and the presentation of flowers, notes and mementos. Music often connects us to each other. As such, we recommend that you bring along your loved-one’s favorite music as our Captain will play it over the custom sound system to help your group cherish their particular memories.
