Sea Placement / Scattering...
(Unattended) We provide a respectful, dignified sea scattering locally in the Gulf of Mexico. We depart port from the Madeira Beach area and travel west a minimum distance of 3 miles as required by US Code. We record the exact longitude & latitude coordinates which are provided to you in the form of a certificate suitable for framing. If you wish to attend, Private Charters are also available. - Unattended Sea Placement COST: $125
Call us for available options for Attended Scattering.
Mailing Cremated Remains...
(US Postal Service) If you choose, we may send the ashes in the container you select to any domestic mail address you specify. For your convenience, we have established a flat rate for this service. Our mailing fee includes packaging the container appropriately for mailing, hand-carrying the packaged ashes to the Postal Service and sending the package by PRIORITY EXPRESS MAIL (the only method allowed by USPS). This can be a valuable service for those who are not able to travel or simply appreciate the convenience of having the ashes delivered somewhere else for them. - COST: $95
