Perpetual Waters Charter Service

Funeral Services Professionals

Since many families are choosing cremation for their loved ones and are seeking an alternative to the traditional placement of their remains in a cemetery niche or burial plot, I am pleased to offer the Perpetual Waters Charter Service.

We are the only exclusive marine charter service of its kind, solely dedicated to Funeral Homes in Southwestern Ontario. We specialize in providing the means for your funeral directors to place the ashes of your family’s loved ones upon the waters of Lake Erie and Lake St. Clair.

We will set out from our home base at the marina in Leamington, Ontario or a pre-arranged location such as Erieau, Wheatly, Kingsville or Cochester in Lake Erie to Windsor, Belle River, Stoney Point in Lake St. Clair for our 2-hour round trip. Our well-appointed, commercially registered, insured vessel and certified skipper will take your families to the location where the scattering will take place. Our 31-foot vessel, will comfortably accommodate 6 people plus the crew.   Our vessel provides funeral homes the means to scatter ashes for their families through the months of May to September, with bookings beginning in April

Perpetual Waters Charter Service will strive to accommodate any requests made by the funeral homes to ensure that the ritual scattering of ashes is carried out in a professional, dignified, legal, and respectful manner. We can accommodate your attended or unattended (multiple scattering) ceremonies accompanied by your establishments funeral director at your request.

We will also work with and accommodate any services the funeral home may arrange for such as a Photographer/Videographer, flower pedals, a selection of music or even a video drone overhead to capture the ceremony.

Setting out from the marina at approximately 8:00 AM when the weather and water is at its calmest.  It is suggested (but optional) that a biodegradable/environmentally-friendly urn be used to release the ashes into the water.

Additionally, we will provide your family with a Certificate of Sea Scattering – with the exact GPS coordinates of where your families loved one’s scattering ceremony took place on the lake. This will ensure future visits to the scattering location, to celebrate a life lived, can be accommodated.
