Ash Scattering Pontoon Boat


Burial at Sea

Burial at sea as a tradition has dated back thousands of years. Presently, family and loved ones have increasingly been choosing ash scattering for their own reasons.

Your captain and crew conduct a dignified, caring, memorial ash scattering service at sea, approximately 3-5 miles offshore in the Gulf of Mexico, just north of Tampa. The services may be attended or unattended. A commemorative nautical certificate stating your loved one's name, date, and exact latitude and longitude of the ash scattering ceremony can be provided for just $10. Windsong Charters guarantees you a professional, affordable memorial service and burial at sea for your loved one. We also offer ash scattering services or burial at sea for pets.

If you or your family are unable to attend, our captain and crew will respectfully conduct the ash scattering memorial service on your behalf. You can be provided with digital photos of the ceremony or if you wish to "attend" the ash scattering service via cell-phone or have the ceremony video taped, this may be arranged for a small additional fee.


How it Works

Hire a captain for ash scattering

Fulfilling Final Wishes - Ash Scattering Service at Sea
You can choose a departure time on one of our pontoon boats. Our boat will depart Gulf Harbors in New Port Richey - just north of Tampa - and motor out 3 miles into the Gulf of Mexico where the engine will be shut down. We will drift gently while you perform your desired ceremony.

You may bring your own music to play on our stereo system on a phone - note that our boats are NOT equipped with CD players.

We will then motor back to port, with an optional stop on the island with the entire proceedings lasting approximately three hours. You may choose the time of day: morning, afternoon or evening sunset. A maximum of 6 people only may attend the burial at sea. If you have more than 6 please contact us for pricing.

Robin Mahan

We would like to tell you how much we appreciate Capt. Dave and Capt. Roland. On June 11th we had a ash scattering and it couldn't have gone any better. Both Captains took the time to make sure everything went perfect. In fact, they went out of their way to make sure of this. Taking the two boats out was a worry for us as we weren't sure how it would work out but it was just wonderful. Kudos to our Captains and kudos to your staff.....many thanks from all 12 of us!

The sunset memorial ash-scattering was everything we hoped for. Thank you, Wendy, for all your help with the planning. A special thanks to Capt. Mark -- you helped us get through a difficult time. Thanks for "arranging" a beautiful sunset and a rainbow :)
I've attached a picture from our trip.
Thanks again,
The Holland Family

Kudos to Captain Mark for an unbelievably magnificent sunset sail on 9/8/14 for our family's cremation remains scattering. Mark's leadership on our final journey to closure of my sister & her son's passing was spiritual perfection! Mark was extremely professional, sensitive, respectful, and appropriately personable. My heart is at peace today thanks to Captain Mark & Windsong Charters for a truly unique and beautiful experience. Blessings to you Mark and Windsong!
