Scattering at Sea with Honor Cremations

Private, Unattended Scattering at Sea

Honor Cremations offers a scattering service for client-families wishing to scatter ashes in the San Francisco Bay. Once the cremation is completed, Honor Cremations will work directly with a local boat captain to perform the scattering in a dignified manner near the Golden Gate Bridge. Based on weather conditions, the boat captain will determine the most appropriate date for scattering and the client-family will be notified in advance within their Honor Hub account. Once the scattering has taken place, photographs taken by the boat captain will be provided in the Honor Hub and a certificate of scattering will sent by mail.

Family-Attended Scattering at Sea

Families and individuals who select Honor’s Simple, Direct Cremation with Scattering at Sea have the option to select up to six guests to join the boat captain for a scheduled, private, 90-minute charter in the San Francisco Bay. Charters depart from the beautiful city of Sausalito, just north of the Golden Gate Bridge. Honor will work with the you to select and coordinate a convenient date and time for the charter and will make all arrangements with the Boat Captain. Before your scheduled charter, our team will hand-deliver your loved-one’s urn to the Boat Captain to ensure all is prepared for your arrival. During the charter, the boat captain will allow your family to hold a small ceremony and choose an appropriate place for scattering your loved-one’s ashes.

Memorial Tree In Honor of Your Family

Our team believes that life is precious and that death is a unique time for honoring life. Our team will plant a memorial tree in honor of your family in a California Forest where reforestation efforts are taking place. In partnership with One Tree Planted, these trees will stand for generations as a living memorial for the families and individuals we have the honor of serving. Your family will receive a certificate from One Tree Planted once your family’s tree has been funded by our team.
