Searching for a caring, peaceful and affordable way of saying good-bye to your loved ones? Was the lake a special place and does it hold fond memories?

“So they may travel with the
currents of the world until the end of time.”

Since many families are choosing cremation for their loved ones and are seeking an alternative to the traditional placement of their remains in a cemetery niche or burial plot, we are proud and pleased to offer North Coast Memorial Charters.

North Coast Memorial Charters strives to accommodate families requests and to ensure that the ritual scattering of ashes is carried out in a professional, dignified, legal, and respectful manner. We can accommodate your wishes with an unattended ceremony.

Captain’s Service – Unattended Burial At Sea

Captain’s Memorial Service -Unattended Committal – $149
Often families cannot venture out on the water or attend a ashes scattering memorial service due to distance, time constraints or other personal reasons. The captain & crew will provide a respectful, dignified lake scattering in the local offshore waters of Port Clinton/Catawba Island, Ohio. We will provide flowers, an absolute confirmation via photograph and a burial certificate which will list the date, time and GPS location coordinates. Ashes can be delivered personally or shipped to North Coast Boat Tours/Memorial Charters. This option DOES REQUIRE that the cremains be interred in a floating, biodegradable urn, purchased by you, of your choice. Please see suggested pillow examples below.

Biodegradable Water Placement Urns are HIGHLY recommended; a beautiful addition to your service.

There are a variety of biodegradable urns from which to choose at any funeral home. Floating Urns are an environmentally friendly way in which to lay the ashes of your loved ones upon the water and allows a short period of time for the family to have a short service or prayers prior to the ashes being interred.

Please check with your local funeral home or a recommended website is for urns and interior bags like the ones below. (North Coast Memorial Charters has no affiliation with any company.)
