Dignified Burials at Sea

Captain Joe’s personal message

I am committed to serving your sea burial needs on an individual and compassionate basis. My formal education and years of on-board experience give me the unique ability to serve your family in a truly professional but personal manner. There are other charter vessels and companies that offer similar services. However, my dedication to satisfying your burial at sea needs with sensitivity and dignity is unsurpassed. Thank you for your trust and confidence.
