Scattering Authorization form.

At the simplest, you may entrust us with the ashes of your loved one, and we will scatter them at the location you choose.  We will be happy to recite a greeting or prayer.


As with all of our scattering cruises, we include onboard photography and an online photo album preserving your memories.  The album may be shared with other family and friends by email link and individual pictures or the entire album can be downloaded without additional charge.

Arranging for an unattended scattering is easy.  Download and complete our Authorization form (see the button on the bottom left part of this page) and then ship the cremated remains to us along with the Disposition Permit (for cremations in California only) and the completed Scattering Authorization form.  Shipment by US Mail works fine.  Within 60 days of receipt, we will conduct the individual scattering service on a calm day, either in Morro Bay, San Francisco Bay or in near coastal waters in the Pacific Ocean.  We will file the completed Disposition Permit and send you a copy and a Certificate of Ash Scattering at Sea with the date, time and GPS location of the scattering.  This service costs $200.00 including all applicable taxes and fees.  A gratuity for the Captain is appreciated.


Please give us a call at 480-272-7780 if you have any questions.
