Tropical Shipping made its debut in 1963 with a 129-foot long landing craft named Tropic Ace. Since then, the company has grown to become one of the leaders in shipping to the Bahamas and the Caribbean. Tropical prides itself on being committed to the individuals and businesses in the areas it serves. Throughout its history, it has assisted in disaster management and hurricane recovery.
Additionally, Tropical Shipping has created a marketing program called Freestay Caribbean which seeks to encourage an increase in tourism in the regions it serves. In this program, Tropical markets land-based vacations to cruise ship passengers in an effort to boost local economies.
