The Voyage


Voyage out the Golden Gate

The entrance to the Golden Gate is a recognized site for at-sea burials. Golden Gate Burial Services sails from Sausalito on the ebb tide reaching the Golden Gate Bridge. We continue westerly towards Mile Rock. When we reach a point two miles west of the Bridge, we perform the service requested or, if none, the time honored burial at sea commemoration. Upon request, we will video or photograph at this time. We note our Latitude, Longitude and weather and return on the flood tide.

Upon return, we complete the ship's paperwork and prepare our Affirmation of Burial for you and your family.


Full Body Burial off the Mendocino Coast

Full body burial at sea is a time honored tradition for those who wish. Federal law allows burial at sea under conditions so strict that few coastal locations meet the requirements. The deep canyons off the Mendocino Coast, beyond the three mile limit meet these requirements. Chapel by the Sea 707-964-5675 (email chapelbythesea@gmail.com) works with us to enable a respectful full body burial at sea.
