Burials at Sea - View from Shore

This type of burial at sea memorial service simply means that for various reasons the family has chosen to view the ceremony from shore rather than being on board. This occurs when a handicapped family member realizes they may have difficulty boarding the boat or perhaps someone who is prone to sea sickness would rather do it from land. It is important to note that many times we can accommodate the needs of a handicapped individual as well as make it a pleasing experience for those who often get sea sick. I am a Physical Therapist by profession and a long-time boater that has some first-hand knowledge on how to deal with these issues.

In this situation, we select a great viewing place on shore and schedule the event so that no one would miss the burial at sea. Again, the ceremony itself is the same. We have had families choose sites such as the Seal Beach, Balboa or Newport piers as well as beautiful locations near the Queen Mary.

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.
