At Arabella, we provide a thoughtful and compassionate experience for family-attended burials at sea. Gather aboard our beautiful 50' sailing catamaran, Arabella, to honor your loved one's memory in a serene setting.
We offer complete exclusivity by reserving the entire ship for your group. Departing from Ponce Inlet, we sail approximately three miles offshore at a comfortable speed of ten miles per hour, reaching the designated location within thirty minutes.
Our vessel is designed to accommodate groups of 2 to 48 passengers with various seating options, including benches, back seating, and net seating on the trampoline. Below deck, you'll find a galley and coolers for storing and preparing food and beverages. Feel free to arrange your own catering and refreshments, creating a truly personalized experience.
To provide comfort, we have an onboard stereo system with music selection and Bluetooth capability, allowing you to play meaningful songs or create a playlist that reflects your loved one's spirit.
Our compassionate Captain will carefully note the ship's coordinates at the destination, ensuring a respectful scattering of the cremated remains.
Following the remembrance service, Arabella sails back to Ponce Inlet in a gentle manner. You have the option to either return to the dock or continue your time aboard, enjoying a peaceful cruise along the serene Intracoastal waterways of Ponce Inlet. Our Celebration of Life sail duration is approximately 1.5 hours, but we are flexible and can extend it as needed. This allows you the freedom and opportunity to honor your loved one in your own personal way, granting you the space and time you require.
We understand that each family has unique needs and preferences. That's why we offer complete customization of all aspects of the service, ensuring your family's wishes are honored with utmost care and respect.
Our cruise coordinator, Penny, is here to support and guide you in planning and arranging a sail in remembrance of your loved one.
We understand the importance of finding a meaningful and eco-friendly way to bid farewell to our loved ones. That's why we offer a range of biodegradable urns designed specifically for water burials, allowing you to create a beautiful and serene final farewell.
Our large biodegradable urns are carefully crafted to be safe for water, enabling them to float gracefully on the water's surface for a brief period of time, typically between 1 to 5 minutes. During this poignant moment, you can take solace in witnessing the urn gently drift before it sinks, symbolizing the natural process of letting go.
Made with environmentally friendly materials, our water burial urns are designed to break down naturally over time, harmoniously returning to the elements without causing harm to the aquatic ecosystem. This gentle process ensures that your loved one's final resting place is respectful to nature and in alignment with their values.
Choosing a biodegradable urn for water burials not only provides a peaceful and serene experience but also serves as a compassionate gesture towards our planet. By selecting our water burial urns, you contribute to the preservation of our waterways and the overall well-being of our environment.
