Ashes Scattering

If you are looking for a dignified and quiet venue to say goodbye to your loved one then why not consider a serene scattering of their ashes on Seafin.

The scattering of cremated remains at sea has been an attractive alternative for many generations and for many reasons:

  • Return to nature
  • Wishes of the deceased loved one
  • Love of the sea
  • Associated with religious beliefs
  • Nautical background
  • Life experiences / association with specific areas of the Solent

These are just some reasons we have been given for selecting a scattering for the final disposition of cremated remains.

Our Ashes Scattering at Sea Service

We offer a family friendly approach to the delivery of our Ashes Scattering at Sea Service year round from our base on the River Hamble, Hampshire.
We can take you, relatives/friends & loved ones (up to 30 guests).

We usually depart from Hamble Point but we can offer other ports by agreement.

The Ceremony

We will cruise to your agreed location, where the skipper will drop anchor (assuming this is possible) or hold the boat in as sheltered a position for your family ceremony to commence.

The pouring of the ashes or placing of the bio urn can be carried out from the bathing platform at the rear of the boat.

Two people will be undertake this whilst attached to the boat via safety lines / life jacket. Special words of comfort and remembrance can be accompanied by your own music (remember to bring your iPhone/pad or cd) which can be played over the boats sound system.

The bio urns usually take about 3 minutes to gently sink away which allows time for private reflections and floral tributes to be placed in the water.

Certificate of Scattering

We provide all families following the scattering of ashes a certificate showing the Latitude and longitude of the exact location of the ceremony in order that you may revisit on future anniversaries

“Wakes” and Celebrations

We hold a full alcohol licence and can provide you a full champagne life celebration including a hot buffet – agreed in advance.
