About South Seas Adventures


At South Seas Adventures, a USA-based independent travel agency, we specialize in travel and tourism in the South Pacific.  Our goal is to provide the best travel experience for you and your family. Customized planning and personal attention to every detail helps ensure every trip – whether it’s a weekend get-a-away or the vacation of a lifetime – is well organized and hassle free! We take care of every detail for you; imagine white glove service that simplifies your “vacation of a lifetime” while saving you time and money. Door to door service is what you deserve.

A trip to the South Pacific can be costly – we help our clients avoid making it a costly mistake!

With a combined 36 years of travel experience specializing in the South Pacific, our team knows how to choose the right property with the features, cost, and details that your budget and dreams allow. We know because we go there, stay there, and get to know each hotel and property we work with.

We also have partnerships with the top airlines to ensure the best pricing, availability and itinerary on both domestic and International flights.

Booking travel has changed so much over the last 26 years.  With the ability to make online reservations for flights and hotels, the burden is on the traveler to pick the right hotel and make travel and connection arrangements themselves.  Most travelers have to rely on dubious review sites to get recommendations. The brick and mortar travel agencies of the past are quickly becoming obsolete. South Seas Adventures, however, has remained a thriving business because of our expertise and the relationships we have maintained with our clients and the resorts for 15 years.  We know each hotel, each island, and each region in the South Pacific and we understand and listen to exactly what your vacation goals are.
