Barry and Julie Karp - owners of ShoreTrips® Barry has been in the travel industry for the last 30 years. He has been traveling all his life to every destination, both as a traveler, a travel agent and as a group leader. He has experienced first-hand the evolution of leisure travel from the days of the pre-computer to the present.


Julie has known Barry all her life and has traveled that long, as well. She started her career as an interior designer 30 years ago, but switched to travel several years back thinking it would be fun to make her hobby her profession.


Both of them have had a very hands-on approach to servicing their clients in their respective businesses and an intuitive sense of the desires of today's travel-savvy audience. Their mission is to allow you to enhance port of call, whether you arrive by boat or plane. They have traveled to every spot they represent to bring you the best and the most unique offerings to fulfill any fantasy. They have worked hard to develop a way for you to have smaller, more personal tours and adventures and yet feel secure knowing that all of the people they represent have an understanding of your expectations.


The truth is, while they live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, their home is the world - its beauty, its people, its cultures. They believe that one day is not too short a time to be touched by it all and create a day you will never forget.
