What is an at Sea Memorial Ceremony?

Memorial services are designed to encapsulate the unique souls of those who have parted from us. We believe memorial ceremonies at sea are an amazing way to honor those we love by commemorating who they were and what they loved.


Many people are unaware that certain permits and allowances need to be obtained before a legal ash-scattering memorial can take place. To make the process stress free, we handle all of the necessary paper work to include permits and reporting with the EPA. Our experienced captains find a serene and private location to hold a beautiful ceremony. Sometimes families choose to have an officiant accompany the charter to help guide the service.


Teraloom handles all of the details so that you can focus on spending time remembering your loved one with those close to you.

Additional Services

We offer options for urns, keepsakes, flowers, officiants, live streaming, and video services that can even include drone footage! Videos are a great option if you know there will be some family members that can't attend.


We offer unique environmentally-friendly urns that are both attractive, durable and biodegradable. You can also find custom keepsakes that are beautiful way to remember your loved one and the special day you honored them.


Lastly, we have a memorial app that marks the exact GPS coordinates of the scattering location where you can also add an obituary, photos, videos, and share memories. We would be honored to help you create the perfect memorial for your loved one. Select a memorial service online or contact us to get started.

Helpful Hint

Many popular ports used for at sea burials are also vacation destinations and may have limited availability around holiday weekends and summer vacation, so plan ahead of time if possible.

When traveling to the port, we recommend scheduling your private charter early in your stay to allow for back up days in case poor weather or ocean conditions do not allow for your ash scattering ceremony to be held at your preferred time.
