Company Comments       Ashes can be scattered anywhere in the beautiful St Ives Bay, or further afield if so requested. We usually find a quiet spot near Godrevy Lighthouse or en-route to Seal Island. The tides ebb and flow in a West to East direction. Skippers Ian and Dougie have many years’ experience operating in the waters near St Ives and Hayle. GPS coordinates will be recorded for future use or information.

Suitable urn       Scattering ashes directly onto the water can lead to them being blown about which some families may find distressing. We supply a wide range of urns specifically designed for water ceremonies. They are all 100% biodegradable and will dissolve in water – please follow the link: Water Urns

We also supply a water ceremony set which includes a water urn, flower petals for scattering, Promises – dissolvable notelets for scattering with the ashes, a certificate to record the ceremony, and our award winning (and rated 5* on Amazon) guide book: follow the link – 4th Ceremony Set
