    Additional Information

"I did a lot of research on the companies in the area before I chose Dana Wharf for my aunts burial at sea. What I loved about this company is that it seems like they are not trying to make a buck off of you during such a hard time. Burial at sea with Dana Wharf is significantly cheaper than the rest of their private charters and significantly cheaper than other companies in the area. It’s not necessarily about the money, more that they care and understand loss. Everything was perfect on the ride. The captain took us to a beautiful spot. We had the entire catamaran to ourselves with just a group of about 20 people. It couldn’t have been more perfect. I recommend this place to anyone looking for burial at sea or even just to rent for any other type of charter."
