Every time you give, you support all of our operations and help us put more groups and people in need through our retreat! We are not a charter boat. We simply offer those kind enough to donate at certain levels the opportunity to sail or cruise with us as friends and crew, learn about our mission, and learn about our ship and her rich history. We thank you for your support!
