Ash Scattering, Chummy Charters, FL

Burial at sea with the scattering of ashes is a beautiful, moving and touching ceremony. We at Chummy Charters focus on small intimate services.  Captain Steve will help personalize your services to a memorable event.  Some customers include a prayer or poem in their service or others include favorite music or champagne-toasted celebrations.

Captain Steve will make sure each service is private, dignified and respectful.  A sunset or sunrise event in the Gulf of Mexico, under the beautiful Florida skies can certainly provide comfort through this difficult time.
