Scatterings at Sea

Scatterings at Sea

The scattering of a loved one’s ashes at sea is a dignified, timeless tradition. The beauty and power, the peace and tranquility of the waters of Monterey Bay make it an idyllic final resting place.

Stagnaro Charters offers private ash scatterings aboard “Velocity”, Monterey Bay’s newest and modern passenger yacht. We are based out of the beautiful ocean-front community of Santa Cruz, the closest seaport to much of the San Francisco Bay area.

All of our ash scatterings will take place on the pristine waters of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.

Trips are up to one hour, giving you approximately 30 minutes to have your memorial. Longer trips can be arranged at additional cost. A certificate of Latitude and Longitude is included.

The cost is $690/hr

$690/hr for the scattering of one individual. $100 for each additional urn to be scattered. Permit required for all boxes of remains.

$2/passenger Port District fee on all trips.

Our 60 foot power yacht, Velocity, is U.S. Coast Guard certified to accommodate up to 66 guests and features a snack and beverage bar with wine, champagne and beer sales available.

We are a licensed Cremated Remains Disposer CRD license #838. For disposition in the waters off of the Santa Cruz County coast, a proper Permit for Disposition of Cremated Remains must be obtained through the Santa Cruz County Office of Vital Records (831) 763-8430.

To reserve your private charter, please call us at (831) 427-0230.

As the waters of a river flow to the sea, the path determined by the line of the valley, so we pass through life to death, our destiny mapped out by your will.
