Sunshine Coast Travel AmbassadorsOct 23, 2014
The Sunshine Coast Travel Ambassadors (TA's) are a group of volunteers who assist both visitors and locals with travel information on B.C. Ferries Route #3 Langdale-Horseshoe Bay. The TA's wear distinctive red golf shirts and each year welcome approximately 40,000 visitors. The program operates from the Easter long weekend to Canadian Thanksgiving.
The program began in 1997 and operates under the direction of the Gibsons & District Chamber of Commerce. The program is supported by local businesses and government (the Town of Gibsons, the Sunshine Coast Regional District and the District of Sechelt).
TA's attend regular "familiarization tours" to give them first-hand experience of the hospitality industry, arts and culture, recreational opportunities for visitors, potential investors and home buyers to the Sunshine Coast. The TA's provide area information on points of interest from West Howe Sound to Desolation Sound.
The TA's are the first contact for visitors to the Sunshine Coast and we thank B.C. Ferries and crews for their ongoing help in maintaining this valued service.
The TA's enhance services provided by Sunshine Coast Visitor Centres, the new Visitor Information Park and greatly contribute to the excellent hospitality service on the Sunshine Coast.
