SAY GOODBYE TO YOUR LOVED ONES BY SCATTERING THEIR ASHES AT SEA
Death is a fundamental part of life, to accept the reality of death is to accept the cycle of nature.
Facing this natural path, the painful loss of a loved one, is also to accompanying them in their last wishes, as an act of love and loyalty.
We live in a privileged place where the Mediterranean Sea has accompanied us in countless moments of our lives. Scattering ashes at sea as a resting place for our loved ones is one of the most popular and demanded alternative of the different existing funeral services.
It is a sensitive, intimate, and attuned with nature way of scattering the ashes of our loved ones.
We help you accomplish it.
An environmentally conscious ceremony, with a company authorised to scatter the ashes at sea facing Barcelona.
From 400€ incl. VAT.
HOW DO WE CONDUCT THE ASH SCATTERING CEREMONY?
Our base port is Port OlÍmpic, Barcelona, the departure point and where our vessel, a luxury motor yacht with a capacity for 11 people, is moored.
We can depart from other harbours, although the ashes must be thrown in front of Port OlÍmpic, where we are authorised to do so.
The crew on board will welcome the clients, familiarising them with the craft and explaining how the service will be performed, where and when to deposit the urn. We will then be leaving the port.
The navigation to the point where the ashes will be spread will be about 10-15 minutes and over 2 nautical miles (about 3km). It will be a calm navigation to the place where the client will conduct the ceremony and deposit the urn.
The farewell ceremony can be accompanied by music of the client’s choice and a floral offering. Once the commemoration has taken place, the clients will return to port and will be offered a selection of drinks accompanied by a small appetizer.
A nautical chart showing the position where the urn was placed will be provided to the port.
The service can last about 1h 30 min.
