Farewell ceremony on the river Scheldt

Are you considering a farewell ceremony for a loved one on the water? We offer such a ceremony in the beautiful scenery of the Scheldt, on board the ships Mozart, Katima and Verdi.

Farewell on the Scheldt


We offer the possibility to take the deceased to his final resting place on board of a ship. The urn with ashes is hereby launched in the Scheldt.

Relatives and guests come on board in Temse, where we leave for a quiet boat trip towards Hamme Driegoten. The ship will stop at a predetermined place on the Scheldt where the ceremony, led by the master of ceremonies, will take place.

With due tribute, the urn with the ashes is launched and we take a moment of silence. The biodegradable urn, surrounded by real flowers or petals, will find the river Scheldt as final resting place.

Close to this final resting place we find a reverie place with a resting bench on the shore, here the relatives can always look back on the place of farewell.

After the ceremony, we continue on the meandering stream, towards Sint-Amands, where a heart-warming aperitif and matching mourning meal will be served.

The mourners find the time to catch up, surrounded by the serenity of the beautiful nature. At Sint-Amands the ship turns and we start the return trip to Temse.

Contact us and we will be happy to provide you with more information, by telephone or by appointment in our office in Temse: 03 711 38 21
