Ceremonies and Celebrations of Life
We serve the greater San Francisco Bay area and California's Central Coast with non-denominational services, for weddings by or on the sea, ash scatterings and memorial services - all recognizing and incorporating the centrality of water in our lives.
Life on earth started in the sea --- it continues there today.
If you entertain thoughts of joining in matrimony,
we can conduct your wedding ceremony aboard a yacht, small or large,
to suit your wishes.
Or perhaps you prefer a service in a scenic setting or facility
alongside the sea?
We can also arrange your wedding reception with all the festivities
aboard a charter yacht.
At the end of days, many choose to return to the sea.
We provide private ash scatterings at sea in calm Bay coves,
in Morro Bay or at the Golden Gate Bridge or in the Ocean.
Scattering cruises can be simple services
or elaborate Wakes.
Oceanic West offers its Wedding Officiant services in and around San Francisco Bay and around the Central Coast, for non-denominational wedding ceremonies on charter yachts or waterfront venues, or uncomplicated and inexpensive elopements. We also arrange wonderful Wedding and Reception cruises on charter yachts.
We specialize in Wedding Officiant services "By the Sea" around the Central Coast area, including Paso Robles, Atascadero, San Luis Obispo, Morro Bay, Los Osos, Avila Beach, Shell Beach, Pismo Beach, Grover Beach, Arroyo Grande and Santa Maria.
Many people are now choosing cremation as final treatment of their remains and we offer ash scattering cruises (unattended or attended) on Morro Bay or SF Bay or nearby California Coastal waters, elaborate Receptions or Memorial Cruises ("Wakes"), and spectacular Fireworks Ash Scattering. Custom ceremonies and full event planning are available. Other forms of Burial at Sea, including full-body burial at sea can be arranged.
Our yachts commonly sail from Morro Bay or Port San Luis or from ports and marinas around the Bay and nearby coastal harbors, including Sausalito, Tiburon, San Rafael, San Francisco (South Beach Harbor/Pier 40, Gashouse Cove at Fort Mason and Marina Green), Oakland (Jack London Square), Berkeley and Half Moon Bay from Pillar Point Harbor.
We are also available as a Memorial Service officiant or minister, helping create the appropriate Celebration of Life of your loved one.
