Our boat, the Anubis, is moored in Lake Washington and we frequently scatter cremated remains in the lake.
Periodically, weather permitting, we schedule trips to the Pugent Sound. With the basic service, cremated remains are scattered in the Puget Sound at locations and times of our choosing.
Individual remains are scattered in separate locations and the GPS coordinates are carefully noted and recorded in our log.
The Certificate of Scattering includes the name of the deceased, date, time, and location of scattering, the name of the authorizing agent, and the name of the funeral home, crematory, or cemetery arranging the service, if applicable.
We are not allowed to carry passengers on these trips, however we can schedule other water craft that are licensed to carry passengers for families that wish to witness the scattering. Costs vary.
