Glowing Burial at Sea Testimonials for Prince Charters

Helpful and Understanding

We used Prince Charters to scatter our mother's ashes at sea and couldn't have asked for a better experience during such a difficult time. My brother-in-law made the arrangements with Donna, who was patient and accommodating. On the day-of Captain Doug and his assistant Jack were very kind and helpful. They let us connect to Bluetooth so we could play tunes Mom would've loved and kept our champagne glasses full. When it was time to say goodbye for the last time, Captain Doug turned off the music, Jack supplied Kleenex, and we watched as they lowered a basket of rose petals and ashes to the water. The boat circled around Mom a few times and they rang the bell. It was the ritual we needed for closure, especially during this pandemic. We can't thank Prince Charters' crew enough for being so sensitive to our loss and helping us through these tough moments. Hopefully we can book them again for a happier celebration soon.

Caring and Loving Service

I made the most difficult phone call a mother can make. Inquiring about an ash scattering service for my 38 year old son was something I never thought I would have to make in my lifetime. Through my tears, Donna lovingly and compassionately helped me with the difficult details in choosing a crematorium and gave me a referral for a wonderful pastor. When I met Donna in person and visited the yacht, I knew I made the right choice to have an ash scattering service for my son. Donna and her husband Doug and their great assistant, Jack, made us feel at home from the beginning of the service until the end. We were served champagne and given white roses to toss into the ocean to honor my son. The service we received from Donna was nothing short of perfection. Although sad, it was spiritually freeing to release my son's ashes into the sea. A beautiful way to say goodbye to a loved one. I highly recommend Prince Charters

Joyous and beautiful

Captain Doug and crew member Lisa made an extremely difficult time, a joyous and beautiful way to say goodbye to my husband as we released his ashes into the sea. Donna was wonderful from my first inquiry, up to the very end. The beautiful certificate provided with the coordinates of where the ashes were scattered, is a a wonderful touch. Thanks to all of you at Prince Charters for making this so special.

On behalf of me and my family, thank you for such a memorable time on your beautiful boat. It couldn't have been more perfect and all of us will treasure my mom's special moment forever.

A Beautiful, Special Day

Captain Doug and First Mate Donna were very accommodating for our family's event to scatter our mom's ashes. Their boat was beautiful and they were very friendly. It was difficult to find this service out of Huntington Harbor. It was a beautiful, special day that went very smoothly thanks to them.
