Our family had a memorial service and at sea scattering of our Dad's ashes on Sail JADA. I have nothing put praise for the Captain and crew. They made a very difficult event, very special and wonderful for our whole family. I can't think of a better way to celebrate a loved one's life than to have Sail JADA handle the Memorial Service and scattering of ashes. I highly recommend Sail JADA to anyone considering an event at Sea. Everyone with Sail JADA was absolutely wonderful. Thank You Sail JADA for more

Now that our journey for our Mom is complete, I want to let everyone know how much we appreciated what Carole at Sail Jada and Captain Don at Gone Sailing did to make it special for us. Carole went out of her way many times to help us obtain the permit, and to arrange Captain Don and his gorgeous sailboat. Captain Don was wonderful, so caring and kind. He just fit in with all of the family, so diplomatic and thoughtful. The boat and the service was first class and our Mother's last wishes were honored. You will not be disappointed, if this is how you want to take care of your loved ones, call Carole at Sail Jada for a unique and heartfelt experience. Cheryl S. Las Vegas, NV 5-17-2019read more
