Burial at Sea – Let Nature Heal
Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door
A Customary Sea Burial Ceremony
A moment of silence, with heads, bowed, our hearts and mind merge as one to honor the life and legacy of a beloved. Incomparable stillness and reverence. Prayers, poems, lively stories, fond memories of a lost loved one are shared. Reflections. The cremains interspersed with a rainbow of rose petals are carefully lowered and released. The captain rings a bell. The reverberation sends chills. The vast openness and beauty of the natural setting are far more spiritual and intimate than a funeral home.
As a client’s selected song plays, the ocean’s enveloping energy can be palpable as we watch the water slowly engulf the colorful offering as it becomes one with the greater universe. Flowers for sea burial are an important part of ceremony, they create an atmosphere. After the final farewell, the yacht slowly makes its way back to shore.

Devotion to the Ocean – Sea Burial
My comfort will come from the sea. The stillness of calm waves will gently drift by I will be as one with the sea. When the sun sets on the ocean blue, remember me as I will always remember you. As the sun rises, go live life as full as can be. Apart you and me, but be at peace for I am free. –Captain Chad Theesfeld

Burial at Sea - A Healing Experience
User Review( votes)
We meet on the deck as strangers. Two hours later, we exchange a warm embrace, forever connected by a shared experience as deep as the ocean–the release of a loved one’s remains. As facilitator on many burial at sea – ash scattering ceremonies, I have had a front row seat to witness the magical powers and awe-inspiring nature of the sea.
