Burials at Sea

Please allow us to extend our condolences for your loss. We are honored that you are considering Bella Luna for your burial at sea ash scattering service.

There's nothing more difficult than saying the last farewell to a loved one. Captain John has been welcoming families aboard Bella Luna for a memorable voyage off the coast of San Diego into the Pacific Ocean to see their dearly departed to their final resting place since Bella Luna has been in service (2016).

The ocean and seas may have special meaning to the deceased. Our loved ones may have spent part of their lives as a mariner, naval personnel, have a love for ocean life, religious or traditional preferences, or a love for the environment and don't want to leave a carbon footprint on the earth. Whatever the reason, we are here to honor the last wishes for a burial at sea.

We welcome up to 40 of your friends and family aboard Bella Luna for the voyage, the ash scattering ceremony, and if you choose, a Celebration of Life after the ceremony.

We provide our burials at sea and ash scattering charters with the same full service as any of our other charters

Bella Luna can accommodate up to 40 guests to attend your ceremony and enjoy food and beverage service while listening to your loved one's favorite music on our premium sound system.

Burials at sea is a specialized service that we provide and there are several variables you may want to consider. We understand that booking online may be somewhat impersonal for this occasion. Please call us directly for questions and consultation. We are happy to assist with optional catering, an officiant, transportation, beautiful live singing performances, bagpipes, or an extended Celebration of Life voyage.

We are also able to assist you in arranging a military burial at sea with full honor guard flag presentation and bugle.

Captain John is also one of the ONLY Captains in San Diego that will assist you in facilitating a full body burial at sea if that is an option you wish to discuss. We also have other boats and yachts available to accommodate other needs if necessary. Capt. John also has colleagues who can assist with your mortuary or cremation needs if you'd like.

Call 619.928.2441 for questions and reservations by phone. Again, we will be happy to call and consult with you to best suit your needs in your time of mourning. You can also visit FuneralsAtSea.com, which is a website we built specifically for this service.
