New England Burials At Sea, (NEBAS), serving families from Maine to Miami with burial at sea scatterings and eco-friendly full body sea burials for humans, has recently announced a new service – Pet Burials at Sea to memorialize beloved, furry and feathered friends.
NEBAS company founder Captain Brad White now provides a dignified “celebration of life” ash scattering ceremony for pets. Pet burial services include a Burial Certificate marking the time, date, latitude and longitude of the ash scattering ceremony. A pet photo may also be included on the certificate free of charge.
Capt. White explained, “We know that pets are also beloved members of any family and we treat their ash scattering ceremonies with deep respect and seriousness. Losing a pet can be particularly difficult for anyone, but especially children because they have ‘grown up’ with that special ‘family member’. Families may obtain better closure from an ash scattering at sea ceremony that celebrates and commemorates their cherished pet.”
NEBAS Ash Scatterings are approved per USCG and EPA regulations. NEBAS voyages out three nautical miles, scatters ashes with a customized sea tribute service and returns to port. Ash Scattering for Pets in an Unattended Ceremony is $95. Prices vary according to the number of attendees for an Attended Ash Scattering Ceremony for Pets.
Biodegradable sea wreaths or rose petal scattering and music are other options available during an Attended Ash Scattering Ceremony for Pets, but are not included in the cost of the ceremony. NEBAS does not conduct full body Burial at Sea for pets as they do for Humans.
NEBAS is the ONLY company in the USA to be properly insured and licensed using U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) captains that operate clean and safe up to date vessels from Maine to Miami as well as San Francisco to San Diego. Vessels vary from vintage Maine down east style to sport or luxury level vessels accommodating up to 400 people.
