Aerial Dispersion (scattering) of Cremated Remains
Our special service provides closure for family members who have experienced the loss of a loved one. We provide aerial dispersion "scattering" of cremated remains off California's Big Sur coastline. The unsurpassed beauty of this mountainous
seacoast along Highway 1 is well known. My flights depart from the beautiful green
Salinas Valley (featured in John Steinbeck's famous book, "East of Eden"),
cross over one of the original California Missions near Soledad, and continue
over the Santa Lucia Mountain Range to the Big Sur coastline. I especially like
to fly out over the historic and very scenic Point Sur Lighthouse area
(shown in the picture above).
State of California Regulations define where the aerial
dispersion of cremated remains may take place. Special Note: Aerial
dispersion over land is possible, but requires the landowners
written permission. Avoid getting seasick on a boat. Let me
