Memorial Cruise

The cremation rate in the United States has risen from 32% in 2005 to over 45% in 2013 based on statistics from the National Funeral Directors Association. These numbers continue to rise year after year and families are searching for ways to honor their loved one’s ashes. Southwest Florida is one of the most beautiful places for families to celebrate their loved one’s passing by scattering their ashes into the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Founded in 1999 and family owned, Salty Sam’s Marina is one of Southwest Florida’s top waterfront destinations and can help families access the Gulf for a beautiful scattering ceremony. The marina sits on beautiful Matanzas Bay only minutes from the Gulf and features two cruise boats to suit any family’s needs. Allow Salty Sam’s to provide the knowledge and service to help make any families memorial service one that will be remembered for a lifetime.
