Burial at sea is a well-established part of cultures with strong naval traditions from the Egyptians to the Vikings to the British Royal Navy. Today "burial at sea" usually refers to having one's cremated ashes, also called "cremains," scattered offshore. It is becoming increasingly popular for many reasons.

A large percentage of the U.S. population lives near coastal areas so many people have ties to the water be they vocational, recreational or just emotional. Additionally, scattering cremated remains is generally less expensive than burial in a cemetery and many consider it more eco-friendly.

Many well-known people have had cremation and scattering services at sea, including John F. Kennedy Jr. (1960-1999), Robert Mitchum (1917-1997), Jerry Garcia
(1942-1995), Janis Joplin (1943-1970) and Rock Hudson (1925-1985).

Others have chosen more exotic final voyages including ashes scattered from airplanes, fireworks, encased in a living reef or even blasted into space. BurialatSea.com was established to help you make informed decisions, honor your loved ones and find the resources needed to make that final voyage.
