What is the best way to scatter ashes in the water?

Ashes can be scattered directly into the water. We do need to pay attention to the wind direction to ensure the ashes aren’t blown towards the boat. Our crew will position the boats in the correct direction and advise when it is time to scatter the ashes.

Can I scatter flowers and petals?

Fresh flowers and petals can be scattered with your loved ones ashes as a final tribute. Silk flowers are not permitted to be scattered into the water.

Can I play music?

Yes, you are welcome to play music onboard. Perhaps your loved ones’ favourite songs or a hymn on your scattering ashes cruise.

How long do I need the boat for?

Allowing for travel time from/to the wharves to a special location, 20-30 minutes of a memorial, scattering the ashes and a final farewell can comfortably take place within 2 hours. We offer the opportunity for longer cruises should you wish to make it into a longer event and incorporate lunch into the cruise. Please let us know in your enquiry your wishes and we can tailor quotes accordingly.
