In this crazy Coronavirus world, many of us are feeling isolated and need to socialize. I created Online Speed Friending to allow you to do just that, in a fun safe environment.

The in person speed friending events are some of our most popular and well attended meetups. Now we have developed a system where you can enjoy this event from the comfort and safety from your own home.


We will take all of the participants and break them up Virtually into smaller groups of 3-4 people. You will be in a private online room (for 5-10 minutes) with just your small group (you can see and hear others in your group). The host will provide an ice breaker question. At the end of each round, you will have an opportunity to share contact information privately with people you felt connected with.

The groups will then be mixed up again and you will meet more people. This process will continue for about 75 minutes.


After you purchase your ticket, you will get a confirmation appear on your screen along with the zoom link for you to use to log in.

Galapagos Islands Expedition--Untouched nature in all it's splendor. Small Group

  • It's a Meetup . . . in the Galápagos!!

This Meetup Event is for the nature lovers, for the curious explorers and the adventurers who want to experience nature in all its splendor & diversity.

For those who don't know . . . the Galápagos Islands are a volcanic archipelago in the Pacific Ocean, considered one of the world's foremost destinations for wildlife-viewing. It is located roughly 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador and over millions of years it evolved into a home for an all-star cast of plants and animals.

It's a place where lizards swim, birds walk, and humans — for once — don't take center stage.

A notable early visitor was 26-year-old Charles Darwin 1835. His theory of evolution introduced the Galápagos Islands to the world. Since then, word of these islands and their magnificent beauty has steadily grown.

As amazing as you think the Galápagos Islands will be, they routinely exceed expectations.

We will explore:

  • Spot the famous Galapagos penguin, blue footed boobies and swim with sea turtles and sea lions.
  • Tortuga Bay Beach for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking or surfing with unique marine life. Good chance to spot finches, yellow warblers, mockingbirds, and lava lizards.
  • Get close and personal with the giant tortoises roaming in their natural habitat
  • Explore the well-known islet called Tintoreras, home of the white tip sharks and its shark tunnel.
  • Visit the Charles Darwin Station, to observe giant tortoises and their babies and learn about this majestic animal.
  • Snorkeling around the shore of the Tijeretas Bay
  • Boat ride to Kicker Rock with snorkeling
  • Sailing to Santa Cruz Island.
  • Sail to Isabela Island, the largest of the archipelago.
  • Boat tour to Tuneles De Cabo Rosa, a formation of series of above ocean arches, creating an unique snorkeling experience.
  • Explore cavernous underground Lava Tunnels.
  • Tour the Galapagos rainforest habitat
  • San Cristobal Island with visit to the Interpretation Center
