Scattering Ashes at Sea

It may well be that you are have arrived at this website because you have recently lost a loved one and are considering scattering their ashes at sea...

Before you read on, please allow us to extend our sincerest sympathies for your loss and let you know that we are here to help you honour their memory with a dignified and memorable farewell.

Scattering cremated ashes is a profoundly personal act, generally undertaken in accordance with the wishes of the deceased or the wishes of close relatives. Ashes are normally scattered in a place that symbolizes fond memories for the deceased and their close family, or alternatively in a place of true natural beauty. Today, many people choose to scatter ashes at sea; what was traditionally a naval farewell is now the funeral service of choice for many people who feel a sense of peace or affinity with the planet's beautiful oceans. offers you and your family a professional, flexible service that is built entirely around your wishes. We can provide you with witnessed and unaccompanied services for both religious and purely memorial purposes and will furnish you with a document stating the exact location, date and time chosen for the scattering of ashes at sea. This document allows you the option to revisit the same latitude and longitude at a later date. We will help you with transport and accommodation arrangements for your stay in the Algarve, as well as with the provision any sundry items such as bio-degradable wreaths, flowers, catering or music.

Should you need, can help you choose a suitable scattering urn or scattering device purposefully designed for ash scattering at sea. Today, instead of simply scattering cremated remains (a.k.a. cremains) ashes can be placed into a bio-friendly scattering urn made from recycled paper or unfired clay that floats for a short while before sinking to the ocean floor. There, the scattering urn rapidly dissolves without environmental consequence.

A typical scattering ashes at sea service will begin with us meeting you and your funeral party in Marina Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal. From there we will board our boat (or boats should numbers dictate) and sail out to sea to perform your chosen scattering ashes at sea service.

Upon reaching the point of dispersal, the boat will stop and weigh anchor. The cremation memorial service will then be discharged in your own time and the ashes scattered into the sea. Once you are ready to proceed, the boat will return to the Marina where we will all disembark. Any members of the funeral party who did not travel with the boat can then rejoin the main group. The Marina Vilamoura itself is a perfect location for everyone then to take some time out after the service before departing.
