Beach Travellers is a Vancouver based travel company that specializes in adventure travel. The company hosts over 40 annual trips ranging from 12 to 40 days in five countries; Bali, Indonesia, Cambodia, Brazil Costa Rica and Thailand.[1] The company's target market is mainly towards Canadians within the age demographic of 18 to 30.

Beach Travellers operates in an online environment that is based on its website and online business systems. Over the years, the company has grown via word-of-mouth and online marketing.

The Beach Travellers team consists of two founding members, Graeme Barker and TJ Hermiston, head office employees and experienced guides stationed in four countries.


In March 2004 Graeme Barker and TJ Hermiston gathered their savings and launched Beach Travellers. To promote their company, the two founders drove across Canada for three months, stopping at Canadian universities to set up information booths. This was executed again the following year.[2]

By 2004 TJ Hermiston and Graeme Baker had stirred up enough interest to take fifteen clients on a tour to Thailand. The trip was successful and from that year forward the clientele doubled.
