  • FAQ

    We'd love to answer all your questions!

    How is Hope Floats funded?

    Your donations!


    As a 501(c)3, our operations are funded through the generosity and regular giving of people doing what they can to help the causes they believe in. To encourage volunteers to be involved in short-term service projects, our pricing covers only the cost to process your registration and all communication with the charity you will be serving at; nothing more. Financial integrity is at the heart of our non-profit charity that wants to help those without a voice.


    If you believe as we do, that together we can lift the world out of poverty, we'd love to have you on our team!

    Can I volunteer at more than one island?

    Volunteer at one or all of the islands currently on offer. We'd love to see you in every port of call

    How soon can I be on a shore excursion??

    Making your arrangements on the ground in the Caribbean is a time-consuming process so please be sure to register your trip at LEAST 2 WEEKS prior to the date of your departure. Despite our best efforts, last minute trips are not possible

    Can I get in contact with the charity I'm volunteering at?

    Once registered and confirmed, we will email you all contact information for your charity including location and printable map take care of all communication so there is no need for you to contact. There will always be a charity representative waiting for you and ready to greet you with bottled water.

    How far is my charity from the pier?

    All charities are located within a 15 minute cab ride or a short walking distance from your cruise ship.

    How long do Hope Floats trips take?

    Four hours. Most trips are from 9 am - 1 pm, Monday- Friday, excluding local holidays, which usually gives you all afternoon to shop, get a tan, or surf the crystal waves!

    How many people can I register for a shore excursion?

    Five people. For groups larger than five, register a second group or contact us personally to make special arrangements.
