“The joint venture was introduced with great success with many funeral directors attending and enjoying the bay cruise that was deliciously catered complete with open bar. Attendees became Sea burial certified® in the process of the cruise and the three three day visit by Capt Brad to some of the 80+ funeral homes in the San Diego market was a rewarding experience” said NEBAS founder Capt Brad White.

White added, “teaming up with AOTS allows us both to use over 31 boats now available to us from San Diego to San Francisco so a family does not have to travel more than an hour to find a departure port. San Diego is a perfect place to start.
