Families desiring a sea burial (ash scattering) will meet at the Freeport Marina, 101 W. Brazos St. Freeport, TX 77541, at a specified date and time. Up to six family members can attend the ceremony at sea and should come prepared for about a three to five hour round trip into the Gulf of Mexico. Depending on sea and weather conditions, the ceremony will be approximately 3 to 20 nautical miles South/Southeast of Freeport, Texas, where the vessel is docked. Sunscreen and hats are recommended as well as motion sickness medication and light comfortable clothing. Families are welcome to bring food, drinks, towels and hats in order to make the journey more comfortable and enjoyable. All United States Coast Guard approved safety gear and equipment is provided and a brief safety meeting will be held with instructions for a safe and enjoyable trip prior to departure. It is recommended to have at least two departure dates for the burial in order to alter plans last minute due to unexpected weather and sea conditions. Typically, one week apart is best as the seas change daily. Per USCG requirements, face masks are mandatory while aboard the vessel. We take your safety seriously.
Once underway, and weather permitting, everyone aboard will be free to move about the vessel to videotape and photograph the event. Upon arrival, the coordinates (latitude/longitude) will be noted by the captain who will present a certificate (at a later date) of exact location for future visits to the burial site. The family is free to conduct a private ceremony and lay flowers or a wreath (bio-degradable) at the site. It is highly recommended families consider the use of a bio-degradable urn for loved ones since it makes for a more peaceful last journey and gives the family more opportunity to take photos/video.
