Our Video

Recently, we have made some organizational changes in ways to help you even more. For example, we are now providing free of charge Professional Photography. This alone would cost someone about $200. Also free to you are food, drinks, and roses for the ceremony. Additionally, I purchase roses for the decorating of the basket containing the ashes.

We have also introduced for the first time Live Broadcasts of our ceremonies around the world. There is a cost for this though of $200, but an amazing savings for those that cannot attend. There can be savings in transportation, hotels, meals, etc. It also works very well when our guests want to view the ceremony from the comfort of their living room or a get-together on a beach or private room in a restaurant.

There are also several options. A ceremony can be performed without anyone physically on the boat. This is an interesting idea and a great choice for the elderly, handicapped, and families with children. It is called a View-from-a-Pier and is performed very close to where you would be standing.

As you will see on the video, ‘Orion’ is a beautiful yacht. You will be proud to be on board, safe, and extremely comfortable for the enjoyment of your ‘special day’. The actual lowering of the basket currently takes place on the aft deck rather than the fore deck.

We service the areas from Laguna Beach to Palos Verdes including Catalina Island.

For the State of California, the Secretary of State and Attorney General, Department of Justice, and Department of Consumer Affairs have awarded a non-profit, public benefit, charitable trust designation to The Last Watch Foundation to provide funeral services to help the Military and their families. We are the only organization in the United States to be awarded this honor. The State has also given us license to perform the scattering of ashes at sea. If a donation to The Last Watch is ever received, those funds are deposited directly into The Last Watch Foundation.

The Vessel
The yacht ‘Orion’ is our private boat taken care of and maintained by our family. Our basic philosophy is that each week, she may be a week older, but she’s also a week nicer. We take great pride in her and want her not only to be a great boat for us, but also a wonderful and beautiful boat for you and your party basically as a ‘back drop’ for the burial service. Well taken care of, she also will provide for you the ‘comfort’ that a ceremony would not have to be cancelled because she was not running.
