"Funeral At Sea offers a dignified and simple alternative to the
conventional funeral.  Funeral at sea, whether it be the scattering of
cremains by boat or airplane, is a time honored tradition.  It is less
costly than a land funeral, and in many ways is much more refined.

Funeral At Sea can provide services in any navigable body of water in
the world, local laws and customs permitting.  The majority of our
services are performed here in the State of Florida, where we have
beautiful, azure waters.

Our services range from a simple unattended scattering of cremains by
boat or airplane anywhere in the state of Florida to elaborate
memorial services at sea with clergy of your choice.
