We're Bill and Cathy, an ordinary couple with an extraordinary vision: to bring hope and health to every needy port in the world!
We are not travel agents. We help connect cruise passengers with local charities.
It all started years ago when we were lucky enough to guest lecture on cruises all over the Caribbean. But our hearts broke over the tremendous need we saw in port; poverty, sanitation & environmental issues confronted us blocks from every pier. In St. Thomas, we had an epiphany: connect cruise passengers to existing charities for service opportunities! No one else was doing it so we jumped in.
Hope Floats was officially born in 2008 after more red tape and headache than we ever imagined, but we forged ahead, adding islands, charities, and incredible testimonials from vacationers just like you who want to CRUISE with a CAUSE. And on this amazing journey, we've learned firsthand what Walt Disney meant when he said,
"It's kinda fun to do the Impossible"
Thanks for checking us out!
