Ash Scattering/ Life Celebration in Hawaii

It’s easy to understand why you would want to celebrate your loved one on a private yacht on the blue Pacific waters off Oahu. Hawaii has a strong spiritual energy both on and off the ocean. A farewell at sea is a healing and soothing way to say goodbye and begin anew.

Customise your Hawaii Ash Scattering.

If you would like to include your pastor, or other, to conduct a service and/or blessing for you, please do. If you have no connections here, reach out and we can give you some suggestions. Perhaps you’d like to sail longer than just the time it takes to celebrate and scatter. What time of day is best? Because this is custom sailing, we can sail any time of day you want and whatever length of time you wish. Our islands are most consistently graced with trade winds so any time is a good time to go sailing…✨SUNRISE, morning, afternoon, SUNSET✨.  It is all good.

Gone From my Sight

  I am standing upon the seashore. A ship spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. 

She is an object of beauty and strength. I stand and watch her until at length she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come to mingle with each other.

Then, someone at my side says: “There, she is gone!”

“Gone where?”
Gone from my sight. That is all.  She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side and she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port. Her diminished size is in me, not in her.

And just at the moment when someone says, “There, she is gone!” there are other eyes watching her approach and other voices ready to take up the glad shout:
“Here she comes!”
And that is dying.

– Henry Van Dyke, a 19th Century clergyman, educator, poet, and religious writer

Hawaii ash scattering/ life celebration

As captain of your private sail boat, it is an honour to help facilitate your Hawaii ash scattering/ life celebration at sea.

Your ash scattering includes a private sailing charter 

A reflective sail to Diamond Head establishes the mood for your ash scattering/ life celebration. How often are we surrounded by rainbows during this boat tour? Almost always. Talk about setting the mood!

Take as long as you need to talk about your loved one as you scatter their ashes and celebrate their life. When all is done, an easy down-wind sail brings your back to the harbour.

When is the best time to sail? Anytime is good…sunrise, sunset, morning, afternoon..you choose.


I hope your days here in Hawaii have lots of sunshine and brightness to them.
Hawaii is such a healing place…immerse yourself in that richness while here, and take it with you when you leave.
