Give Your Loved Ones The Respect They Deserve

Land is in short supply, cemetary plots are very expensive, and funerals can set families back more than $20,000. With the scattering of ashes into the everlasting cycles of the ocean, all three of these issues can be avoided.

private group events on cruise san diego

Cruise San Diego helps families by creating a space for healing on the ocean. Trust us to help your family with closure by scattering their cremated remains off the coast of San Diego.

Our boat, the Ohana, leaves from Mission Bay and can accommodate groups from 1 to 100 people. You can join us for a group scattering, where each group has a dedicated amount of time with the captain at the bow of the boat. Or you can reserve the entire boat for yourself with your own private officiant.

Our ash scattering ceremonies are performed from a variety of locations off the San Diego Coast. If you have a specific location to scatter we would be pleased to accommodate your wishes.

A memorial service can be performed and flowers placed in the water. After the ash scattering, the exact GPS position of the burial ceremony is recorded. This information is used to complete the memorial certificate which will be sent to the family.

Burial Services Available at Cruise San Diego

To help families balance cost with a personalized experience, we offer three different service packages.


Unattended Burial

You provide your love one’s remains to our office and we respectfully spread the ashes for you, document the exact GPS location, and provide with you a certificate. This service is also available for pets.


Group Burial

A group of no more than X people go out on our boat together. Each group gets a dedicated amount of time on the bow with the captain for their memorial. After their time ends, the next group is invited to the bow. This service is also available for pets.


Private Burial

One family or group reserve the entire boat for X amount of time. Since this is our most custom option, we can arrange for a custom pickup location and a specific location to spread the ashes. This service is also available for pets.
