Call to Reserve

The scattering of ashes at sea is a simple alternative to a conventional memorial service, usually arranged honoring the wishes of your loved one.  These are private customized burial at sea charters that are prearranged between you, our staff and the captain before the date of the memorial.

The boat is a 18 passenger U.S. Coast Guard Inspected vessel, it was custom built to specifically experience nature and wildlife, designed for shallow water uncharted type excursions. We get as close to all the sights as possible, we can literally park our tour boat on the beach. Tour boat is open air, with upfront covered passenger seating with 360 degree unobstructed views, you are literally seated along the edge of the water.  The captain will transport you to the best places to view the sights, from wildlife to lighthouses, all while you learn about the maritime history of the area. The open air small boat experience provides an immersion with the landscape, all while allowing us to quietly and closely approach the natural environment in away no other tour boat can.   We cover all the local sights, exploring over 20 miles of area waterways, including the back waters channels of the Cape Fear River and ICW waterways around Southport, Oak island, and Bald Head Island.


Your captain will cruise you through remote shallow water mangrove islands in a custom built Coast Guard inspected boat specifically designed to experience the sights as closely as possible.  During the holidays and the high season (June, July, August) it is important to reserve private charters as far in advance as possible.  Our burial at sea memorials depart from Southport, NC our boat slip is located at the South Harbour Village Marina between Oak Island and downtown Southport.  A short drive from Wilmington, Holden Beach, Ocean Isle Beach and Sunset Beach.  Book online or call 910-212-4840.
