Scattering Ashes

Say your final farewells to a loved one onboard a private, intimate cruise.

Ashes Dispersals

Did your dearly departed love the ocean? Scattering ashes at sea aboard ‘Life’s Good’ might just be the perfect return to nature for them.

Say your goodbyes and final farewells onboard a private, intimate cruise. Whether it’s just you, or a few friends and family, the Cruise Gold Coast Team will help you honor the memory of your loved one.

  • “Life’s Good” is a comfortable, luxurious catamaran licensed for up to 25 passengers and 2 crew in-shore. Off-shore, 8 passengers only.
  • The option is to charter the whole boat. Not available for ticketed bookings.
  • Please allow a minimum of 3 hours.

How does it work?

Perhaps you have a special location your loved one had an affinity with? We can cruise to your selected destination or we can help you choose the best position where you will be able to scatter the ashes and say your farewells. We will log the exact coordinates with our GPS identifying the place the ashes were scattered giving you the opportunity to re-visit at a later date.

The Scattering

Once we arrive, the motors will be turned off to allow us to float in peace. If you have chosen music or have a video, this will be played during the ceremony.  Depending on your chosen form of memorial you may wish to scatter the ashes directly onto the water and watch them gently disappear into the distance, cast a wreath or, say goodbye with a special bio-degradable urn.

An Ash Scattering service can include:

  • Receiving a memorial certificate with detailed co-ordinates of the scattering location: $100
  • Showing of a pre-loaded video of photos of precious moments and memories
  • Attendance by your priest or other ceremony professional
