Historically Ships used the tradition of a burial at sea due to the lack of having proper means to bury Sailors.
Today The at sea ceremony for cremated remains or full body burials is one of the highest honor and respect paid to former service members or civilians. Our at sea events are dignified, memorable and affordable.
