Buddy Cruise is a 501c3 non-profit charity providing educational opportunities and resources for families, while promoting awareness, advocacy, and inclusion for individuals with special needs.
Join us for our unique annual conference at sea! A Buddy Cruise not only gives you the opportunity to gain information through educational workshops & events, but you will network with others from across the globe that are in "the same boat", and form lasting bonds. Families who have a hard time finding a scenario to meet all family members’ needs are accommodated with a variety of activities for all ages and abilities.
In order to participate in a Buddy Cruise you must reserve by calling 877-239-2789 and pay the conference fee of $80.00 per cabin.
Once you board the ship you will quickly realize that you are now part of a larger family, the Buddy Cruise family. Sail once and become a Buddy Cruiser for life.
Connect with families who know first-hand the joys and challenges of caring for a loved one with special needs. Create bonds that will last a lifetime.
Take part in interactive workshops hosted by professionals in their fields.
Learn from experts in the field... parents and caregivers, just like you. Gain and share knowledge from those who have walked the path you are on.
Our annual conference gives you access to
Some of the things you might encounter on board a Buddy Cruise: an awareness walk, swimming with the dolphins, extreme dune buggies, Beach Olympics, dances, indoor sky diving, other customized excursions, and much much more.
Whether it’s your experience on a Buddy Cruise or interacting with us in some other way, you will find that you will be creating memories that last a lifetime. Memories not only for your family but for those whose lives you touch.
