We at Stargazer Yacht Charters are committed to delivering ceremonies of the highest standard, ensuring a safe, respectful, and memorable experience. Our crew dedicates immense effort and attention to detail, both visible and behind the scenes, to exceed your expectations from start to finish.

While gratuities are not included in our service charges, they are sincerely appreciated. A customary gratuity, typically 20%, is a valued gesture of recognition for the crew's dedication and hard work in facilitating your ceremony with care and dignity. We believe in the profound significance of scattering ashes at sea – a gesture that symbolizes a return to the embrace of nature’s grandeur, honoring your loved one’s final wishes with purity and reverence.
