Small Parties (1-6 guests)
m/v Grasshopper is a seaworthy and unsinkable Boston Whaler. On the Central Coast, we normally board in Port San Luis or Morro Bay, with access to sheltered coastal or bay waters. In the San Francisco Bay, we offer similar cruises aboard m/v Flying Cloud, usually boarding in Berkeley, but we can make arrangements for other boarding locations at San Francisco, Sausalito, Oakland or other Bay Area docks. These smaller vessels provide an intimate connection with nature.
This service costs $450 including applicable taxes and fees.

We include coffee, tea and sodas from the bar and additional beverages can be arranged. Voyager is berthed at Berkeley in the SF East Bay, but can board at other locations for an additional fee.

Attended Ash Scattering Cruises
Private Attended Scattering Cruises
Join us for a private scattering ceremony in sheltered waters on Morro Bay or San Francisco Bay or in Coastal Waters of the Pacific Ocean. Your Captain is a US Coast Guard licensed Master and the vessel complies with all US Coast Guard passenger vessel regulations. Your comfort and safety are our primary concerns.
You may choose to have the Captain conduct the service or provide your own --- we will provide a basket of rose petals and slowly circle the scattering site before returning to harbor. Afterwards, we will file the paperwork and send you a copy and a Certificate of Scattering with the date, time and GPS location of scattering. All cruises also include onboard photography and an online photo album preserving memories of the cruise that may be shared with your family and friends.
