Adventure, Dive & Sustainable Travel Specialist

My focus is custom travel planning so that you will have a unique experience, check all the items off your travel bucket list and truly feel as if you took a trip no one else has been on! I specialize in adventure, dive and sustainable travel.

My name is Jamie Owens and I currently live in San Diego, CA. I grew up at the beach, fascinated by the ocean.  I studied Environmental Science and Marine Biology at the University of Tampa. In college I got my SCUBA certification and have been hooked ever since. After college, I worked in the Florida Keys as a PADI Divemaster. I have traveled to many countries, exploring both above and under water. My hobbies besides traveling & diving are paddle boarding, underwater photography, hiking, golfing, skiing and yoga. I also enjoy good food, wine and beer.

Traveling to me is an adventure, not a vacation. Travel agents plan vacations, travel planners plan epic adventures. I am a travel planner and I will book your greatest adventure!

Hands down, the best trip I’ve ever taken

Reviewed By Mikayla - Port Saint Lucie, FloridA | Traveled to Peru ~ South America
I have nothing but amazing things to say about Jamie. She is organized, accommodating, kind, and truly loves travel. That’s the kind of person you want planning your adventures. She responds quickly to questions, finds the most affordable and convenient travel options and makes the whole planning process seem like a breeze (which I know it is certainly not!).
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Jamie Owens responded:
Thank you Mikayla! So happy to hear you enjoyed the planning process!

Top travel experience so far!

Reviewed By Thomas - Buffalo, NY | Traveled to San Pedro ~ Belize ~ Central America
Wonderful to work with. Communicated very well and was not pushy like other travel agents I spoke with. She was willing to work with us and come up with multiple different travel packages. Was willing to help adjust the experience we wanted and very happy we chose Portofino resort instead of Ramons. Much less crowded and more romantic. Met several people staying at Ramons who were not happy. Everyone loved Portofino
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Jamie Owens responded:

A dream come true

Reviewed By Danette - Buffalo | Traveled to Belize ~ Central America
We just came back from an AMAZING trip to Belize! I have severe travel anxiety. I start researching a trip, panic and then cancel the entire thought. Jamie made a 6 year dream come true by booking everything for us! She was very thorough and made sure that the options she had for us were 1. In our budget and 2. What we really wanted for our week in paradise. Jamie also had a wealth of knowledge about our destination, customs, tipping, what to pack and how to travel and was very accommodating with last minute changes and additions to our itinerary. I felt 100% confident and secure taking this trip! I need Jamie to book all my adventures from now on!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Customer Testimonials

Europe Trip

"Cannot thank Jamie enough for helping us plan our trip that we took last month. We had an amazing time. We started in Amsterdam, Netherlands; next to Brugge, Belgium and the Ghent Jazz Festival and finished with a week in Ireland. Our favorite spot was Skellig Michael Island but loved the whole trip. Jamie made so many great suggestions which made our time so memorable and enjoyable. She is amazing. I can't wait for our next adventure! Thank you Jamie!!!!"

Peru Group Trip

“Jamie planned the greatest trip I have ever experienced to Peru recently. I’ve been on many trips and this was by far the most organized and action packed trip. We were able to see so many things and the experience was nothing short of amazing. If you need a trip planned I highly recommend using Jamie!”

Group trip to Peru

“I recently went on a trip to Peru that Jamie led. She planned an adventure that allowed our group of 8 to experience Peru’s culture, history, and people in the most beautiful way. If you’ve ever considered doing any adventure traveling but weren’t sure how to go about planning it, Jamie is your girl. Every detail of each day was perfectly planned and organized without feeling like a strict itinerary. I can’t thank her enough for my most memorable trip to date!”

Honeymoon to Belize

“Jamie did an amazing job being patient with my wife and I as we decided to go to San Pedro Belize. She was so helpful and went the extra mile with our questions and changing our minds. She was great with communication via email, text or phone calls. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend Jamie, Belize and Portofino Resort.”
