"I saw God's hands working here when I was searching online for this service because I was actually typing in another company that the Mortuary had given us to use, but your website was all I could find. I tried and over again to find the company that I was referred to but again, your website was all I could find. I got the message to listen to God and call you. He was right as He always is that you were who we should use for mom's burial at sea and so I called you and booked a reservation. When I went back in to show my children your site and what you provide for loved ones, the other sites reappeared. Isn't it awesome the way God works?" 

Isn’t that an amazing letter? Its letters like these that make us feel good (a little ‘pat-on-the-back’) and gives us direction in how we proceed to help others.

In our daily Ministry we give to our clients by providing for them as many free services as possible. Unlike anyone else in this industry, we give: Food, Drinks, Flowers, Professional Photography to every family we work with. During a difficult time, we try to ease the burden.

Just as we influence others, we wish to reward those who show the same heart as us. Many more acts of kindness can be guaranteed through our foundation.

We believe so strongly in honesty, transparency, and in giving. We Are Not a charter boat company or a commercial business operating out of a private dock. We Are a non-profit foundation operating out of our office-5150 PCH, Suite 200 in Long Beach. To dispel of any inaccurate and false impressions about our company, we need to clarify some points: 1. Our slip is not used for commercial operations. This is used for one purpose and one purpose only and that is for a place to tie up and to care for our boat. No passengers would ever be allowed by us on our dock. Any guests on our boat are picked up elsewhere as to not give the wrong impression. 2. Our Charitable Trust is not a commercial business. The owners, Mr. and Mrs. O’Connor, wanted to make this perfectly clear by never accepting cash, salaries, or compensation in any form. We are honest people and would never violate any regulations, be they State, USCG, or Marina.

For the State of California, the Secretary of State and Attorney General, Department of Justice, and Department of Consumer Affairs have awarded a non-profit, public benefit, charitable trust designation to The Last Watch Foundation to provide funeral services to help the Military and their families. We are the only organization in the United States to be awarded this honor. The State has also given us license to perform the scattering of ashes at sea. If a donation to The Last Watch is ever received, those funds are deposited directly into The Last Watch Foundation.
