Celebrating 60 Years Committed to IslandLife


Message from Jeff Fiser, CEO Tropical Shipping

Jeff Fiser

Tropical Shipping is proud to call The Bahamas and Caribbean home for 60 years. We could not have grown to what we are today without the strong partnerships with our customers and the dedication of our 1,200 employees. We live by the words “Committed to IslandLife,” and have invested in the communities we serve. Your success has contributed to our success, and Tropical will continue to help those communities thrive with on-time, reliable service.

Thank you for your support. Here’s to another 60 years of success!


Our Story

In 1963, Tropical Shipping did what had never been done before – it committed to a set and dependable sailing schedule. Many thought we couldn’t do it, but we followed through, and 60 years ago the Tropic Ace made its maiden voyage to Freeport, Grand Bahamas. Tropical Shipping now serves more than 30 locations from Canada to the Caribbean and South America. We have invested in new equipment and larger, faster, and cleaner-fueled vessels to improve our service. It’s part our commitment to the region.
