  • We create opportunities for Caribbean cruise passengers to spend a few hours volunteering in the islands on shore excursions.

     

    Our excursions are created through partnerships with reputable charities with a long-term local presence to ensure safe, impactful volunteer opportunities in:

     

    Antigua, Aruba, Barbados, Belize, Cozumel, Nassau, St Lucia, St Thomas, & Tortola

     

    We strive to make our trips family friendly, with low physical involvement, safe environments, and affordable pricing. Trips are $40 for the first person and $20 for each additional participant.

  • Testimonials

    From our previous explorers!

    "Our family volunteered at the Salvation Army facility on St Lucia. At their daycare center we assisted teachers, soothed infants and sang songs with the children.

     

    We saw the children's needs listed under the trips details in the online store and brought stuffed animals, toothbrushes, and hand sanitizer. We loved our time and would volunteer again in a heartbeat!"

    "My 12 year old daughter, wife, and I volunteered at a recycling center on Antigua. Our driver gave us a tour of the island, including treats from a locals-only 'best bakery in town'.

     

    At the center, which supports several families, we sorted materials amongst locals and learned about the science of recycling. The experience allowed us to connect with locals in a way very few tourists do.

     

    Our daughter learned about life in the islands in a secure setting and has been inspired to study environmental science. A few days of serving in the beauty of the islands and the luxury of the ship made the experience extremely rewarding."
