Hi, I'm James,  proprietor of Honu Adventures. I'm a lifelong traveler, a member of the American Society of Travel Advisors (ASTA), a Certified Cruise Counselor (CCC) with the Cruise Line International Association (CLIA) and the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association (IGLTA) and a certified destination specialist for the beautiful State of Hawaiʻi. I am also  certified at the highest level with both Virgin Voyages and Holland America Line. I am a registered Seller of Travel in California, and participate in the  California Travel Consumer Restitution program. In other words, I have crossed my Ts and dotted my Is to ensure you can trust your travel plans to Honu Adventures.

Many folks ask … Why do I need a travel advisor when I can just go online and book my own travel? This is a legitimate question, but easily answered with one word - Value!

As your travel advisor, I am committed to finding you the best value in terms of price, quality, safety and perhaps most important, your precious time while on your hard-earned vacation. Tell me where and when you want to go, how many people, what you like to do, what’s important to you and your approximate budget and I will do the research and present you with a few options to consider, often at a better price ... but most important, always at the best value. If youʻd like to travel with a group, I can help with that too.

About Honu Adventures

Honu is the Hawaiian word for turtle, a symbol of wisdom and luck. The Honu represents the navigator, and the eternal link among people, the land and the sea. Based in San Diego, CA, Honu Adventures, a new and we like to think different travel agency, was established to introduce adventurers to authentic experiences in explorations around the world, and in particular, Bhutan, Hawaiʻi and other destinations with a deep and rich cultural heritage. We are lifelong travelers, who, like the Bhutanese, believe in 'high value, low impact' travel.


In addition to Bhutan, I specialize in UnMask Market Travel including cruising, tours and group journeys.
