Honour your loved ones with our morning Ash Scattering Services at Sea, aboard a luxury yacht
Scattering Ashes

Eternal Waters: Ashes to Sea

Come aboard for a memorial service led by your captain or personal clergy as your loved ones’ cremated remains are placed upon the water’s surface to dissolve into the sea. With our Toronto ash scattering services at sea, family/friends bring their loved one’s ashes, aboard our luxury, licensed yacht and then set off for waters just south of Toronto. Once there, friends and family may perform a service as they please – with music, a clergy-led memorial, or individual reflections. >>>As a part of the service, we provide a simple maritime tradition whereby the yacht makes a figure eight; first counter clockwise remembering the life lived and then clockwise to represent that time continues to move forward. While completing the symbol of infinity the ship’s bell will ring eight times, signifying the end of the watch, as one final token of respect and farewell to the departed. Upon request we provide a Certificate of Sea Scattering of the remains, containing the exact location where the ashes were released and the names of those in attendance. This way, families may revisit the site whenever they wish and pay their respects to their loved one.

Cremation and Ash Scattering

In recent times cremation has become a popular choice, giving families the time to plan which way they would like to send off to the other side, the ones they love. When it comes to scattering ashes, you can choose a beautiful location meaningful to your beloved. Either their favorite place or somewhere they always wanted to visit. A perfect resting place.

Water Ash Scattering Service

Scattering ashes in a body of water is a suitable tribute and beautiful farewell for your dearest. However, you may be unsure about the procedure to follow, if you need any permission or how to arrange it. Fortunately for you, we can take care of all the details so you can focus on spending time with your family and friends finding or giving the needed support that the circumstances require.

With our Toronto Ash Scattering Service at Sea, we aim to simplify the process so you can have more time to focus on saying your final goodbye to your beloved.

Types of Urns for Ash Scattering at Sea

When it comes to ash scattering at sea, you can choose to simply transport your beloved ashes in a regular urn and then pour them from the urn into the sea. However, you should plan and keep in mind the direction of the wind because it can get messy.

On the other hand, if you opt for releasing the whole urn into the water, there are many biodegradable urns you can choose from. These quickly dissolve into the water as they are made from biodegradable or recycled materials. Water urns come in various shapes, such as flowers, turtles, seashells and geometrical figures. Besides helping the environment, the biodegradable water urns have a large capacity and are easy to transport.

Scattering Ashes at Sea Ceremony

Whether you choose a religious memorial service or a ceremony amongst family and friends, arrangements are required You can personally make these arrangements or hire a professional to assist you. In a religious memorial service, a clergy-like individual may officiate the ritual. While on other occasions it may be a family member or a friend who lovingly remembers the life of the deceased. Either way, you may choose the ceremony that what best honours the memory of your loved one.

At Gone Sailing Adventures, we offer the maritime service where our luxury certified yacht will make a figure eight, which represents infinity. First, counterclockwise symbolizing the recollection of your loved one moments in life. And then clockwise, representing that life continues moving forward. Later, when the ashes are scattered, the bell will ring eight times, signifying the end of the watch, honoring the departure of your dearest.
