"Stupid" or not, there's a federal environmental law against scattering human ashes less than 3 miles from the coast. Look into it.

I advise the OP to look into it, and then ignore it with impunity.

We've gone to an informal ceremony where a friend spread some ashes (not all the ashes) on a Mendocino cliff side...very beautiful thing to do IMO. A beluga whale swam right below us as we finished up the ceremony--very rare thing to see I would think.

I'd just rent a boat and do it myself if I didn't want to use one of the existing services. Just check the swell conditions.

Rare indeed since it's about 2000 miles outside it's normal range in the Arctic ocean.
