Seaside Send Off


Recognizing that fulfilling a loved one’s last wish to have their ashes scattered at sea is not always an easy task, southeastern Connecticut residents Bob Scott and Ray Gaulke recently launched SeaCeremony. Operating out of Saybrook Point Marina in Old Saybrook, the pair takes up to six passengers out three miles (the legal limit) in Long Island Sound aboard the 26-foot wooden Ebony for dignified memorial services, where ashes are dispersed properly. Special ceremonies for veterans (including a bagpiper) and optional extras like biodegradable floating urns are also available.

Inspired by a friend whose mother’s remains sat on a shelf for three years, Scott says he hopes SeaCeremony can reach out to those “who have an urn in a closet waiting for an opportunity to fulfill a loved one’s final request.”
