Burial at Sea

Burial at Sea


A Distinctive Remembrance

Historically, ships used the tradition of a burial at sea to honor those sailors who lost their lives while at sea. Today, the burial at sea ceremony for cremated remains is a way to pay tribute to the deceased. Our at-sea services are dignified, memorable and respectful for veterans or civilians.

“The sea is the largest cemetery;  its denizens sleep with no distinction and no monument.”

The tranquil waters of the Gulf of Mexico have brought comfort and peace to mankind for generations. A burial at sea is a healing event that delivers your loved one’s ashes with reverence to their final resting place.  Forever changing, eternally enduring, the world’s oceans are the final resting place for countless generations.
