Stella Travel Services USA, the parent company of Islands in the Sun, Travel2, Qantas Vacations, and Travelscene, is behind the magic of Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Away Vacations – creative dive inspired vacation packages created to drive North American traffic to its South Pacific destinations. The Jean-Michel Ocean Away Vacations is a marketing campaign to increase awareness of these locations.
Virtuoso is in full support of the campaign and is encouraging agents to promote Jean Michel Cousteau’s Oceans Away Vacations to their customers seeking adventure, diving opportunities, cultural experiences and the perfect beach getaway.
The Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Queensland, Australia is a bucket list destination known for having some of the best dive spots of the world. With over 2,900 reefs, 900 islands, and hundreds of diving locations, there is an endless diversity of marine life including coral, fish, whales, dolphins, sea turtles, and sharks. Fiji, one of the happiest places on earth and home to some of the clearest blue water and colorful coral, is also a featured destination, along with French Polynesia.
“This collaborative relationship will inspire tourists to feel empowered to learn all about the natural and cultural beauty of the South Pacific and through responsible tourism, they will ensue a healthy productive ocean to enjoy now and into the future. We have to continue to look for creative ways to join forces with tourism and conservation in turning the tide, making a difference, expanding our efforts, and protecting and improving the quality of life on our blue planet,” said Cousteau.
A percentage of sales will be donated to the Ocean Future’s Society to help fuel Jean Michele’s mission to protect the ocean. These packages will be featured on Travel2, a trade website directed to travel agents. The packages include accommodations, diving expeditions, sightseeing, and transfers.
