The Crew!

We are the Heartswells – a name inspired from the day mini-man was born. Damon said that his heart filled so much that is swelled. And that is how our family name came to be. We are a young family who loves to travel everywhere – from places in our own backyard to places across the globe. We are thrilled to share our adventures with you.

 Cruise Director Julie (a.k.a. Sharon – lover of the ‘Love Boat’).

Growing up, I always dreamed of visiting many places around the world. Since my family couldn’t afford it, I made it a goal of mine to travel as much as I could when I got older. That goal was far surpassed when I met my partner in life – Damon. In the ten years that we have known each other we have traveled across the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Now we want to take that travel up a notch by traveling the world. We are excited to share our journey with you and hope that you will be inspired to travel yourself.

Captain Stubbing (a.k.a Damon)

Growing up in New England, I was led into a corporate life of a good job, a mortgage, and a family. I met my partner Sharon while working weekends in a Florida theme park. Having idealized fictional reality, my ensuing adventures with Sharon revealed to me the wonder and depth of honest connections and complex un-curated experiences. My biggest adventure is my own self knowledge, and in turn the challenge of being a hero for myself and my crew. I cherish the journeys I share with those I love. I’m excited to share some of them with you.

Yeoman Purser Gopher Smith (a.k.a. mini-man)

Over the past two years, I’ve traveled with Sharon and Damon to California, Mexico, Florida and much more. I’m loving getting to play in all these great campgrounds and make messes wherever I go.

Isaac, your bartender (a.k.a little-dude)

I’m the newest member of the family. Since I was born, I’ve been to 17 states, and counting, and I love every minute of it!

    If you’d like to benefit from first hand experience / advice for going round the world, we know a couple who has done it – solo and with a group of boats.

    They’d be glad to answer any questions and give you some ‘heads up’ suggestions before you weigh anchor.

    Jim and Jenee Fraine: live in San Clemente, known them for years. He was a Teradyne sales guy and they both went to New Zealand on that bike trip with us.

    P.S. They are selling a 50-some foot boat – the one they made their last voyage on!

    Feel free to contact Jim if interested:
