Toronto, Ontario – Ann Souter at Toronto-based Round House Adventures completed a specialized training program and is now certified as an Adventurist with Un-Cruise Adventures. The line offers adventure cruises aboard boutique yachts and small ships in Southeast Alaska, Hawaiian Islands, Mexico’s Sea of Cortés, Columbia and Snake Rivers, Coastal Washington, British Columbia, Costa Rica, Panamá and the Galápagos Islands.
To join the Adventurist Club, travel agents participate in a series of online tutorials and pass an online exam. The Adventurist program details the nuances of Un-Cruise Adventures’ inclusive small ship adventure and river cruises along with destination information.
“We commend travel agents who take the time to complete the certification program,” said Tim Jacox, president and COO at Un-Cruise Adventures. “By becoming a specialist, agents have the expertise to paint a clear picture of our small-group adventures for their clients.”
Un-Cruise Adventures offers an alternative to traditional cruising by taking travelers into areas that are not accessible to larger ships and on activities that focus on the wilderness, wildlife and culture in each destination. Seven adventure vessels offer opportunities for outdoor activities including kayaking, hiking, snorkeling, skiff explorations, stand-up paddle-boarding and whale watching. One replica coastal steamer offers river cruising with an eye on history and included shoreside tours to points of historical interest.
Ann Souter, CEO and Chief Adventurer at Round House Adventures, has been a life long traveller and has recently launched her own business as an independent adventure travel specialist in Toronto, Ontario. Ann’s passion is responsible tourism as a means to help people have meaningful experiences and create life long memories, while helping indigenous communities around the world have a sustainable future, as well as protect the environments we visit. Round House Adventures provides small group expeditions and customized itineraries for the adventurous traveller, with a focus on cultural and wilderness expeditions.
