Give me a call 619-987-0663
I am going to need small deposit, so I can reserve the date for you. The remainder of the invoice may just be paid on the yacht the day of your charter.
Will scattering be attended, unattended? The the date / time you wish to go out. How many people will be on the yacht?
We need to secure a disposition permit for your scattering. To obtain this we need the the original or a certified copy of the death certificate (this will be returned to you).
If you already have a valid California Burial Permit that states disposition as “At Sea off the coast of San Diego” then we do not need the death certificate.
If an unattended scattering then we require the Authorization Form, which allows us to perform the scattering. This must be completed and signed by the person who has legal responsibility for the cremains.
Mailing Cremains Guidelines
We prefer that you just bring the cremains with you, if you will be attending the scattering. If this is not possible, only the US Postal Service is allowed to ship ashes, Federal Express or UPS are not allowed to do this by law. If you are dealing with a funeral home, they will be able to help you with the mailing.
The ashes must be packed in a sift-proof container and another outer container that is sealed and durable. The original plastic bag provided by the crematory is sufficient for a sift-proof container. The identity of the contents should be specified on outside of your container “Cremated Human Ashes“. Please send by registered mail with return receipt service.
