Scatter Ashes on Sydney Harbour to Honour your Loved One

 

 

Scattering Ashes At Sea Ceremonies Detail

 

Sydney Harbour Escapes offers professional services to farewell your loved one at sea. In choosing from our large range of luxury boats, you are ensured a memorable and beautiful way of scattering ashes at sea.

We also offer private boat charters for revisits to original scattering locations. We understand the significance of the occasion, and provide a range of options to make your ceremony both special and hassle-free .

You may consider come extras to make your day more memorable such as flower arrangements, catering, musicians or a celebrant. Our recommended caterers can create a menu tailored to your individual tastes and needs. Loved ones often toss flowers or petals as a final tribute as the ashes slowly drift away and sink to rest while your guests gently contemplate. This is a good time for some pre arranged music to be played or a poem to suit the occasion.

Ensure your ceremony is as hassle-free as possible by choosing a convenient wharf pickup and/or drop-off location. Please note that not all vessels are able to pickup at all wharves, so please speak to a Sydney Harbour Escapes team member for recommendations of suitable locations for your guests to be picked up and dropped off. 

We recommend that you meet with one of our team personally when planning your scattering of ashes charter, so that we can ensure a dignified and memorable ceremony.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is the best way to scatter ashes over water?

Ashes can be cast directly into the water, but can blow back at the boat if you are not attentive to the wind direction. If you have a skipper on board you own have to worry about this as they will know this. If you are on a self drive boat please be aware before scattering to avoid an awkward situation.
