Burial at Sea

SunsetTo Whom It May Concern:

For those bereaved families who feel that an alternative to a traditional land burial would befit their dearly departed, H2O Captain LLC would like to introduce to you our continuing service of Burial at Sea.

My name is Captain Mark Sonder. I am a Merchant Mariner Credentialed Master Captain and serve in the USCG Auxiliary, Department of Homeland Security. In addition, I am an Admissions Partner to the USCG Academy which trains future USCG Officers.

I have found that families prefer this kind of farewell in private and serene settings. I perform this service in the Beaufort, Emerald Isle, Shackleford Banks, and Cape Lookout waterways and always receive positive feedback and testimonials.

Families with limited financial resources can benefit from a burial at sea as a less expensive alternative to laying to rest their loved ones after cremation. This includes pet cremains.

H2O Captain Eco-Tour Private Boat Excursions offers reasonably priced options to meet the financial needs of families in need. This includes a professional, licensed, insured, and experienced boat captain for a dignified ceremony during the season of April 1st through mid-October for burial at sea.

JYCquoteOption A
Leaving from Atlantic Beach, NC, and carrying up to 6 passengers, the Captain will bring your family and friends, along with the cremated remains of their loved one(s), including pets, to a Federal, State, or family-approved location for a proper burial at sea. This would include a brief ceremony and marking the scattering of the ashes with a latitude and longitude Certificate.

Option B
For your family and friends of the deceased who cannot be present, I offer an unattended Burial at Sea in which the cremains are taken to a preselected location to be released. The day, time, as well as the location of the spreading, will be recorded with longitude and latitude coordinates as well as with a Certificate. This allows the family to revisit the location should they desire. The family will need to arrange for the delivery of the cremains to H2O Captain LLC.

Please call 202-369-1063 to inquire.

Wishing everyone, Fair Winds and Following Seas
