Jamaican Bucket List – A Top 10 of things to Do
As I stepped from the cool air conditioned airport into the heavy, humid air of Montego Bay, my glasses fogged up. A common, irritating occurrence at home during the summer, made charming by the fact that I was in Jamaica for a few days of sun, sand and spas! While humid, it was temperate and, after a quick stop at Tastee Patties for a ‘welcome’ beef patty, the cool greeted me again as I loaded into the van to head to the resort.

Island Routes Tours - Committed to providing the ultimate vacation experience
March 14, 2012 - The average visitor to Jamaica would only cite the words "sun, sea and sand" to describe the beautiful, dynamic island on which he has spent many days. That was often times due to the fact that he would be contended to staying only within the comfort of his luxurious hotel or villa. Today, he is more informed and is willing to explore more of what Jamaica has to offer.Island Routes Caribbean Adventure Tours (IRCAT) is one company that is continuing its mandate to giving visitors to the island a chance to see the splendor that defines the Caribbean - from the Blue Mountains to the shorelines and beyond, to the clear, blue Caribbean Sea, with the peace of mind of knowing that their safety is paramount. Since its inception in 2009, IRCAT is the fastest growing tour conglomerate in the region with over 300 tours under its belt. A few of these tours offered include their signature Island Vibes Reggae and Lover’s Rock Catamaran Cruises, Horseback Ride and Swim, the South Coast River Rum and Falls, Captain Hook Tour, Jamaica Swamp Safari and the Blue Mountain Bicycle Adventure. General Manager David Shields said IRCAT is committed to giving guests a taste of the real Caribbean, with the ultimate tour and excursion experience. He also said that IRCAT will be continuously improving the efficiency of its operations, ensuring that its team delivers not just the best in service, but that it delivers on the safety of its guests. “The Caribbean holds much more than what is sold to visitors through the media and through brochures. Yes we have some of the best white sand beaches and absolutely amazing weather, but we also have some of the best terrains, rivers, mountains, flora and fauna and places of interest that our visitors need to experience," he said, “It is also imperative that our guests understand that when they book a tour through Island Routes, they are guaranteed world class service and safety.” Last month, IRCAT’s marine division completed a mandatory training workshop where the team members were given refresher courses in life-raft drills, fire-on board drills and man-overboard drills. Each member of their Marine Division is also a lifeguard, certified in first-aid and CPR. “For all the captains and crew on the sea vessels, yes the entertainment of the guests is important, but their safety is our top priority, and that is why we work so hard to train them,” said Captain Mitch Pilon, IRCAT’s Revenue Fleet Manager, who was the chief instructor at the training workshop, held at Sandals Royal Caribbean on February 27. The two and a half-year-old company is still the only tour company to be recognised with the Six Star Diamond Award from the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences and was this year awarded the World’s Leading Caribbean Attraction Company, both awards for the second consecutive year.

Richard Moss, IRCAT’s Training and Trade Development Manager who represented IRCAT at the event, said that it was necessary to aggressively promote the region in a different light, which has not been the case in times gone by. “Many visitors when they think about the Caribbean think about relaxing on a stretch of a beach. The Caribbean is much more than that, and what better way to experience the rich cultural diversity of the Caribbean than with a group of experienced Island Specialists who know the islands inside and out, and can guarantee quality safety and service.” General Manager for IRCAT, David Shields said that he was proud that the company was a part of this momentous event, in promoting the diversity of the Caribbean. “The staging of such a remarkable event in the north-east United States, an important source market for visitors to the Caribbean, is important to us, given our commitment to marketing our Caribbean product portfolio in important gateway cities. We certainly would not have missed this invaluable opportunity to share and sell the best of what the Caribbean has to offer,” he said. Liberty Travel Expo, the world’s largest travel show, has been held in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and South Africa. This was their first show in the United States.
