Burial at sea memorial service
We are proud to announce that we have just received a very important award from The City of Long Beach: The 2017 Best of Long Beach Award for Funeral Services & Cemeteries. We are also very proud to announce that we achieved USCG certification for carrying passengers on board.
This is extremely significant for the general public for with us, you know that we are legal and safe. Many illegal businesses are operating (and getting caught). They endanger your life only to save the costs of becoming a legal entity and a USCG certified vessel.
As you begin to view our web site, I ask you to read some of the letters we get. These comments that we get weekly come from the hearts of those that we have met. It is hard to describe what a blessing it is to receive these testimonials.
We believe so strongly in honesty, transparency, and in giving. We are not a charter boat company or a commercial business. We are a non-profit public benefit charitable trust operating out of our office-5150 PCH, Suite 200 in Long Beach. You may notice in your search for the service that pleases you the most, that we are very unusual: we do not have additional charges which everyone else does, we do not charge more for weekends or holidays, we do not have a specific destination or a specific time of day we go out for we want you to be a part of the decision-making process and want to do everything at your convenience. We have even arranged for free parking for you and your guests at Rainbow Harbor. For larger parties, more than 12 passengers, we can arrange for all of your guests to be a part of the ceremony at no extra cost.
Our boat is located in beautiful Rainbow Harbor, the Shoreline Village area in Long Beach. More specifically, we are near Parker’s Lighthouse whose address is 435 Shoreline Village Drive, LB 90802.
We are United Coast Guard certified to carry 12 passengers. Many other companies are uninspected vessels, meaning they have not been inspected by the USCG, and are only allowed to carry 6 passengers. Their captain has a license called a 6-pack unlike our captain who has a much higher qualification as a Master Mariner Captain. Our vessel has also had to meet much higher standards to make her safer for the passengers.
We would also like to announce that on March 17th we received the award from a very prestigious organization based in New York City for “The Best Burial Service of 2016/2017. Now that came as quite a surprise and I would not go so far as to say that we deserved it. We try our best and know that we are far and above better than all of the services in our area and have been told this many times. We are humbled and extremely gracious of this honor.
