About Us

Get Up and Go Travel was founded by Venessa Covington-Tate  in 2017.  I've had the travel bug since High School. It started with New York every weekend.  After dedicating over 30+ years to Corporate America. I decided to follow my dreams. I read somewhere,  - "Choose a job that you like and you will never work a day in your life"  - Confucius  

After traveling throughout the Caribbean, I felt it was time to share with the world some of the best kept beauties of nature. Like climbing waterfalls in Tobago or climbing Dunns River Falls in Jamaica. or sail from St. Thomas to Tortola, B.V.I., Jost Van Dyke or stand on the deserted Spit Island (where Corona shoots their ads).. Grenada smells like Cinnamon , Barbados have Beautiful flowers and their aroma fills the air. Sail to Dominica and enjoy the natural Hot Springs, then on to Mexico, Hawaii, St. Croix, St. John, The Bahamas and......

Since that first trip to St. Thomas (many moons ago), I realized that travelling was My Niche,  As you can see the Caribbean is my favorite, the unspoiled islands and natures' beauty enveloped me.  Most of the islands are accessible from most major airports and have direct and non-stop flights.

Cruising is a great way to visit more than one island in 7-10 days.  Ships depart from  lots of area ports, Like Maryland, Boston, Florida (of course). There are many departures from Bayonne, NJ and New York City too.  Have your driver (Lyft or Uber) drop you at the New York Pier, climb aboard and Get The Party Started . Cruising is very economical as they are all-inclusive.  Food and drinks are available 24/7.  Great entertainment, from Broadway Shows to Comedy. If you want to be a star, try Karaoke

or lay on the deck and watch ice sculptures   being created right before your eyes  while you work on that tan.  Maybe you'll want to dance the night away at one of the discos or clubs and try your luck in the casino.  There is soo much to do you'll need a vaca once you return from your vaca.  Hench Get Up and Go Travel was born.

The United States is also a beautiful country, particularly the South and West.  Some of my favorites are, Arizona, Nevada, Indiana, Utah, Texas, California, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and The Outer Banks in North Carolina to name a few.  I probably have a friend or a friend of a friend on every island and every state, you can too!  Pack your bags (pack light), grab your sunscreen and your phone (camera) and Get Up and Go Travel. Let me help you make memories you wont ever forget.  Call, email or text me for more information.
