SeaLink taps new sales team member

Anthea Somerville to grow the business in North and South America
Adelaide’s SeaLink Travel Group has appointed Anthea Somerville sales manager USA, Canada, South America and Inbound.

Somerville, a 12-year Qantas veteran who was its tourism business manager, will be based in Sydney.

In 2011 SeaLink bought the Australian operations of Captain Cook Cruises, including the 120-passenger paddlewheeler Murray Princess which operates three-, four- and seven-night cruises along the Murray River from Mannum. 

SeaLink offers complimentary return coach transfers from Adelaide to Mannum (which take about an hour and 20 minutes) and arranges pre- and post-cruise accommodation in Adelaide. It provides complimentary tours to the Barossa Valley for passengers on seven-night itineraries.

In January 2012 Richard Doyle, the former Sydney-based director Japan, Asia and Cruise for Tourism Northern Territory, joined the company as head of sales and marketing worldwide.
