HomeAshes to Sea Ceremonies


Ashes to Sea and Celebration of Life Ceremonies are very meaningful ways to memorialize your lost loved one and to find closure to your mourning process.

Mana'olana members and a Hawaiian Kahu will accompany you and your family and friends in our double hull canoes to pray, chant and scatter flowers and inter your loved one's ashes to the sea.

We can accommodate up to 12 guests in 2 double hull canoe dependent on the weather and the paddling abilities of the guests. If rough conditions exist, fewer family members and more Mana’olana members may be required or we may do the ceremony from shore is too rough as safety is always our #1 priority.

We ask for a minimum $500.00 donation for the first double hull canoe and $450.00 for each additional canoe to help support our Mana'olana Programs; and $100.00 donation paid directly to your Kahu (minister).

A Memory Charm and a tax letter are provided for your donation.

Miss Me but Let Me Go
When I come to the end of the road,
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room,
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little but not too long
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me but let me go.
For this is a journey that we all must take
And each must go alone
It’s all a part of the Master’s plan
A step on the road to home.
When you are lonely and sick at heart,
Go to the friends we know,
And bury your sorrow in doing good deeds,
Miss me, but let me go.
