Island Routes Caribbean Adventures offers guests the ultimate in Caribbean destination experiences, bringing together and certifying the premier excursions that spotlight all that is unique and beautiful in each of its island locations. It defines the true island experience as a way of life.
The company is much more than tours and excursions; it inspires visitors to ‘live funner’, to get off the grid and dive into the heart of the islands where setting sail, grabbing the reins, exploring lush peaks and tasting rich flavours are the experiences that become lasting memories.
Island Routes has set the tour industry standard by becoming the only tour company to receive a Six Star Diamond from the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences (AAHS), and has done so four years in a row.
It has also been awarded two TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Awards.
