Great Programs Grow From Great Partnerships!
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. We’ll love you just for thinking of us! Ocean Courier is a project of The Ocean Foundation, and all donations are made through their website.Support Ocean Courier
