Many guests choose to extend their wedding with a Bay Tour and visit Tampa Bay Islands, and the awesome Anna Maria skyline at sunset.



This exclusive, private charter consists of an easy gentle ride into the Gulf waters.  Once arrived at the destination, the ceremony will begin with however you with to say goodbye.  Either by a prayer, spoken words, in silence, or by song.  The ashes will gently be scattered into the sea, either by the Captain or a family member, followed by the releasing of flowers. We will then return by a gentle ride back to the dock.  A certificate with date and GPS location will be given. Complimentary bottled water is provided.

It is common that families will wish to revisit the site of the actual scattering on the anniversary of the ceremony. If we did not perform the initial ceremony, you will need to provide us with the GPS position.
