Your Most Trusted Source For Unattended Burials At Sea

Burial at sea is an ancient and time-honored tradition dating back to the time when man first went to sea. Today, cremation and burial at sea are a matter of personal choice often based on emotion, family tradition, economics or a deep religious or spiritual conviction.

The mission of Sea Spirit Memorial is to provide a convenient, lawful and dignified sea burial within the majestic Monterey Bay, California, fulfilling the wishes of both the deceased and their family.

The Captain's Prayer

Alone I will not be
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

Ash Scattering

We discovered Sea Spirit while searching Monterey and Santa Cruz for a boat to scatter my in laws' ashes. After speaking with a long list of possibilities I called Raina and was certain this was the business for us. Raina was professional, caring, respectful and absolutely perfect, gently guiding us through a process that was completely foreign to us. It was a beautiful experience.

Scattering Ashes

Thank you Raina and the Sea Spirit personnel, you were very accommodating with our special request of where we wanted the ashes scattered. The "Captain’s Prayer" and ringing of the bell 8 times after the scattering the ashes was very touching. Thank you Sea Spirit for making our experience so special and memorable!

Angels of the Sea

We used Sea Spirit Ocean Safari to scatter my departed father’s ashes in Santa Cruz waters. After calling many service providers we settled on Sea Spirit - Raina who managed, was kind and respected our wishes (we’re Hindus) - she was just the kind of person who my father would have had a lengthy conversation. There were no last minute surprises, She communicated on a timely basis. I cannot thank enough for enabling us to honor our very very dear departed father. I honestly believe my kind and wise father chose her I highly recommend Sea Sprit for your boating needs
