All scatterings will be done over the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary and in accordance with FAA, local, state and federal regulations.
We are required to disperse the ashes at least 500 yards from shore and often times we will need to be at 1000 feet or higher over the water (depending on the location you would like us to scatter the ashes).
