I need to spread the ashes of a deceased relative in San Diego. Does anyone have any suggestions on how this might happen?

My family is getting together on short notice to take care of remaining business in San Diego from a death in the family, one of which is the ashes from the recently deceased. It would be optimal to find a quiet place in nature to say a few words before releasing them back to the earth. I don't have a perfect picture for doing this as it doesn't come up too often in daily life.
I could use some places in San Diego or within an hour or two drive where this would be suitable. We are contemplating a sailboat ride outside the harbor but time and availability may make that option not possible.
Also, how do people handle this in terms of ceremony or behavior? Any ideas or ways that have worked would be helpful.
Personally, I want my ashes packed into a skyrocket and shot into the air with a big kaboom at the end...but that's just me. This ceremony will need to be a little more relaxed than that.
Thanks in advance for your help.
