I was told We can hire a boat to take us out in the lake to scatter the ashes and have a little ceremony afterwards on board the yacht

nice comment , but would scattering ashes on Lake Michigan in the Chicago area be legal ? I'm thinking about renting a yacht to do it and then have a going away party on board at the same time

I'd just rent a dingy and do it. You seem like a nice person. Call city hall. I just got on Chicago to see about murders! Hope I didnt offend you with my comment. Good luck!

yes a dingy might work and you didn't offend me. I found this boat who does the scattering of ashes with a ceremony if you want http://chicagoprivateyachtrentals.com/scatter...

I just thought it would be nicer than a Chicago funeral homes room rental then followed by everyone going to a restaurant with the family. Here it looks like we can do it all at the same time and on Lake Michigan

Now I was reading that you have to be at least 3 miles off shore from this boat rental place in Chicago www.adelinesseamoose.com to be legal on Lake Michigan . I've heard the same thing from other funeral homes when I called them but they didn't seem to be to helpful

Theyíre not going to be helpful if youíre not spending loads of cash at their facility. To be certain itís legal, call Chicago City hall and ask. Iím sure they can direct you to the appropriate department.

Other than that, I donít see why itíd be illegal anyway... all sorts of stuff is dumped in that lake. I doubt youíd have to ask permission, just do what you want, and be discrete.

scattering ashes in Lake Michigan, Chicago will say it's legal but will the DNR ? I'm pretty sure that there's a lot of boat rentals that will take you out on lake Michigan and have an after scattering ashes party with all your friends and family. Sounds nice and might be nice to go out in style!

If you want to hire a boat to scatter your ashes on Lake Michigan check out this charter boat company www.312yachtrental.com site. Yes you can spread ashes in Lake Michigan says Illinois law and without permits for disposing of cremated remains. The only regulations I believe is that you have to be about 3 miles off shore if you want to have a spreading of ashes or cremated remains off a boat in the Chicago area. All you need to do is rent a boat that will let you have a spreading ashes ceremony on there charter boat or yacht rental service

The boat has to Licensed to go 3 miles out from shore. The only Charter Yacht that holds this License is Adeline's Sea Moose... www.adelinesseamoose.com
