Does anyone know about any rules or regulations about scattering someone's ashes at sea? My ex-step father recently passed away and wants some of his ashes scattered off the coast of Tortola. We are will be on St. John in April and thus we have been delegated this task. We figured we could do it while out on a charter trip. Any thing I should know in advance? He introduced me to the VI on a sailing trip in 1991 when I gradfuated from college so it is kind of an honor to do.
