As announced today by Travel Weekly, Aggressor Adventures earned two 2021 Magellan Awards. Aggressor’s industry-leading Clean, Refresh, Sanitize program is being honored with Gold for Cruise Safety and the Inspired by Adventure podcast has won Silver for Cruise Podcast.
The Magellan Awards are judged and overseen by a panel of top travel professionals representing prominent travel brands and the most accomplished leaders from the industry. In determining winners, entries do not compete with one another; instead, they are judged against a standard of excellence based on the extensive experience of Travel Weekly. To uphold this esteemed standard, a category may have multiple winners or even no winners at all.
“We are grateful to be recognized again by the prestigious Magellan Awards. When traveling with Aggressor, our focus and dedication to guest and staff safety is second to none,” said Aggressor CEO Wayne Brown. “Amid the pandemic, we doubled down on safety policies and procedures. We could not be prouder of what we’ve accomplished this past year and to cap it off with Gold and Silver Magellan Awards is a true testament to our resilience and commitment to service.”
Aggressor’s Clean, Refresh, Sanitize program put forth diligent efforts beginning in 2020 to provide a safe and healthy return to travel for both their customers and personnel, immediately incorporating pro-active sanitation and training strategies. The program outlines in detail the steps and best practices for every Aggressor destination to utilize before, during, and after a trip. Not only has Aggressor’s staff created knowledge-based articles regarding plans for cleaning, sanitizing, and social distancing, but they’ve also updated standard operating procedures to emphasize a healthy and happy return to adventure for guests.
Aggressor’s Inspired by Adventure Podcast features guests with a nuanced and expert perspective on adventure travel topics. Past guests included Canadian Screen Award-winning producer, creator, and star of the hit TV series Survivorman, Les Stroud, and scuba diving industry expert, Tec Clark. Episodes of Inspired by Adventure are released weekly and are available for download on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Stitcher. The podcast is also available on the Aggressor Adventures blog.
