The ocean has been enjoyed, loved, and respected by generations of mariners,
fishermen, surfers, divers, military and, most recently, families of individuals spanning
This attraction to the sea, for some, is more than
just a fleeting feeling; it's more of a deep and profound "calling" that is rarely
understood by those who do not have it, but rather simply tolerate their loved one or family member
who can not stay away from the ocean. They live for it, and the ocean lives for
them. Many times these same individuals have a strong
desire to be put to rest at sea, to have their ashes scattered over the face of the ocean and to at
last, become one with their first and eternal love... the sea.
This request often leaves entire families, desiring to carry out their loved ones
wishes, in an awkward situation. They may, or may not be physically capable of going out
to sea without getting violently "sea-sick", or may have certain back or muscular condition
that will not allow them to ride over even the smoothest seas without risking severe pain or

An increasing number of people are choosing spreading ashes at sea for a variety
of reasons. Not only is it significantly less expensive, rich in nautical background and is an
eco friendly alternative to traditional land funerals, but is a peaceful way of saying good
bye set against a beautiful backdrop of sea and sky.
Our ash scattering at sea ceremonies are performed
from a variety of locations off the San Diego Coast such as the Cabrillo Monument, Point Loma,
Sunset Cliffs, and Coronado Island.
Currently approximately 46% of people would choose
cremations and many of them choose to scatter the remains in some manner over water. Burial at sea
is common if the deceased enjoyed the outdoors and the water. Perhaps they loved boating or some
other aspect of the aquatic environment.
It is also possible to perform a burial at sea with no remains. This can be done when it is not possible to
retrieve remains - in the case of a disaster where no body is found. A service can be performed
and a memorial or flowers placed in the water. Although not strictly a burial at sea, it does
provide the family and friends with a form of closure to aid in the grieving process.
Burial at Sea San Diego captains are licensed and insured by the state
of California, so you can be 100% confident during your ceremony. PacificaSailingCharters@gmail.com
