Burial at Sea
Say goodbye to your loved one with a memorable burial at sea. Burial at sea is a time-honored tradition usually performed by the Captain of the ship, or a religious representative. The Condor Express offers a comfortable and respectful vessel for your loved one’s final voyage.
The modern, spacious, twin-hulled, catamaran offers a super-smooth ride and is equipped with a PA system for speakers and guests, two 42-inch monitors for memorial videos and a state-of-the-art Bose sound system for music. The Condor Express has a capacity for up to 120 guests. Arrangements for appetizers, lunch or a full dinner can be made. We can customize your burial at sea ceremony to make it the experience you desire.
Today’s burial at sea ceremony usually consists of a memorial service along with the spreading of the cremated ashes upon the ocean. The Captain is available to say the prayer and commit the body to the deep or help in any way.
