Flexible Options (Available April through November) :
Attended Service for Burial / Ashes Scattering at Sea:
For those families wishing to attend the voyage, Metamorphosis Boat Charters provides scattering service tailored to the family's preference. Cost for this service is $450 with estimated time of 2 hours. The Metamorphosis is limited to carry up to 6 passengers, however we can assist with logistics for a larger group on an alternative US Coast Guard inspected vessel.
You may choose to have the Captain conduct the service or provide your own --- we will include seasonal flower for the scattering and slowly circle the site before returning to harbor. On the return, the Captain with provide a shoreline pass of Atlantic City and share much of the City's history. We strive to provide a very positive experience of closure for the family and an everlasting fond memory of the service. Afterwards, we will file paperwork with the EPA on your behalf and provide a copy and a Certificate of Scattering with the date and location of scattering.
Unattended Scattering at Sea:
Often families cannot venture to sea or attend a sea scattering service. Our captain brings the cremated remains on an ocean voyage for you. A dignified sea scattering or burial at sea is performed and documented, with that documentation provided to you. This is our most affordable option, with price at $250. We will also provide flowers and document with digital photography if requested at no additional cost. Additionally, You may Skype or FaceTime at the time of scattering to share in the experience.

Respecting the traditions of the many cultural and religious communities, services can be tailored to individual preferences as we supported for so many, including Hindu and Buddhist families. We pride ourselves on supporting the family with the best customer service providing a positive experience during a challenging and emotional time.
