The scattering of ashes into the open ocean is a timeless tradition that spans across many cultures around the world. Many people, from former residents, to return visitors have made Waikiki their final resting place.
Waikiki Beach Services provides a simple, yet beautiful burial at sea service aboard our outrigger canoe. A loved one’s ashes can be scattered in the open ocean off Waikiki, under the shadow of Diamond Head. Say a prayer, sing a song, or simply rest in silence while you say “Aloha”.
At the end of each burial at sea, in true Waikiki Beachboy tradition, our crew will catch and surf a wave into shore, honoring the deceased with “the last wave”.
