We would love to believe that Ocean Courier operates solely on wind and solar power. But hey, lets be real! We can’t spread the message without your help. The good news is you don’t have to have deep pockets! Every dollar helps. Ocean Courier is a project of  The Ocean Foundation, and all donations are made through their website.
