A Note From the Founder

Salty Vibes was started by Michael Forey an Indiana native, now residing in St. Pete Beach, Florida. Mike shares a passion with millions of people all over the world. Whether it’s Hawaii, the Caribbean, or the Golden Coast, there’s something about the blue water, white sand, and towering palms that we feel connected to, and there’s nothing better than sharing that connection with a community of ocean lovers who feel the same way.

Long days at the beach and on the water usually call for a bit of preparation. Just like you put on sun screen to keep your skin safe, you want to put on clothing that will keep you comfortable when temperatures get high. All of our shirts are made of a high-quality, ring-spun cotton that makes them lightweight and soft. This breathable material is perfect for the heat and humidity of a tropical climate, allowing each cool ocean breeze to pass right through. Our performance shirts are UPF 50+ so you can be assured you’ll be cool and protected.

We love to incorporate colors that reflect the laid back ocean image that boaters, surfers and swimmers love, as well as a comfortable, relaxed fit that feels great every day, even when you’re back at home. All Salty Vibes product are of the highest quality – quality you’re not going to find in a big box store.

Salty Vibes clothing and accessories are designed for active lifestyles and sun-filled water activities like fishing, boating, diving, or lounging around on a tropical island (or the back yard). Our hope is that these designs will help you enjoy the same experiences we treasure so dearly around the world’s beloved beaches. Quality and customer satisfaction are our highest priorities, so we can confidently guarantee that you’ll love Salty Vibes products.

Not only will you get our great shirts, you will be giving back to the community. We support these fine organizations. We deeply believe in protecting our oceans. 5% of all profits go to saving the oceans for future generations.
