Scatter ashes at Sea

Scatter ashes at sea

Scattering ashes at sea on the Gold Coast

Releasing ashes at sea is a truly beautiful way to send off your loved one. A small ceremony on the water or on one of the sand islands gives you your own space, time and solitude to scatter the ashes exactly how they would have wanted.

The cremated remains can be scattered on the water, peacefully descending into the water or a biodegradable urn can be used which will float on the surface momentarily before sinking and dissolving.

Our pontoon boat is often hired for this purpose, we can accomodate up to 12 guests with ample space to make the ceremony comfortable & stress free for everyone.  Built in speakers will allow you to play chosen songs or poems to accompany the ceremony.

We also recommend scattering flower petals at the same time as a much more visual way to follow the ashes flowing away and gives a very nice, dignified send off.

She is gone – By David Harkins
You can shed tears that she is gone
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back
or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left.
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her and only that she’s gone
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
or you can do what she’d want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
