Where do the ashes go once they are in the water?

Cremains (ashes) typically find their way to the warm ocean currents of the northerly traveling Gulf Stream. The Gulf Stream is the western boundary current of the N. Atlantic and transports significant amount of warm water (heat) poleward.

The core of the Gulf Stream current is about 55 miles wide and has peak velocities greater than 5 knots or 6+ mph.

    Interested in spreading my parents ashes. We would want to go out of Wells Maine during summer of 2021. Can you send info on the process, number of people allowed on the boat and cost?
