What we're about

Thank you for checking out our group. After years of being a private club we have now opened up our events - free of charge. Active Singles Adventures has been in Orange County for 27 years now. We used to be Athletic Singles Association but changed our name so as not to intimidate anyone (and because a person didn't need to be "athletic" to enjoy our group). But we are still "ASA" . We continue to organize interesting social and active events so you can come out and meet our travelers and consider coming on one of our trips which we run as Singles in Paradise.

Our typical trip consists of 40 singles. We recently traveled to Peru, Kenya, China, Costa Rica, Tahiti, Panama, Belize, Honduras, Greece, Amsterdam, Belgium, Ireland, Galapagos and other exotic destinations - all with experienced guides and terrific group rates.
Meet fellow adventurous singles near you! Come to our Meetup to meet us, share stories and get first-hand recommendations on new exotic destinations. Find fun, laughs and maybe even a new travel buddy! Check out http://www.singlesinparadise.com for all the details on our trips.

Italian and French Riviera Vacation - May 2nd - 13th, 2023

Needs a location

10-Nights 3-nights in Santa Margherita, 4-nights in Nice and 3-nights in Arles - Just $2,450

Here's another trip that we've been asked to repeat that was a huge hit back in 2016. We will have 3-nights on the Italian Riviera, 4-nights in Nice and finally 3-nights in Provence.

We'll land in Milan where our coach will take us to the quaint coastal town of Santa Margherita, Italy. You will love this quaint town nestled in to the hills, a short walk or boat ride to Portofino. Santa Margherita Ligure, called the Perla del Tigullio (Pearl of Tigullio), is a famous, elegant seaside resort, one of the major resorts in the Riviera di Levante, the section of the Italian Riviera east of Genoa. Santa Margherita is a great place to explore some of the other nearby towns such as Cinque Terra, Camogli and Portofino or to just relax and soak up this vacation retreat on the Italian Riviera. Then we move to Nice.

Now we are in the heart now of the French Riviera for 4 nights and will not only enjoy exploring Nice but will have easy access to some of the most exotic and interesting nearby towns in the world such as Monaco, St. Tropez and Cannes. We will have optional tours to explore these nearby towns. We will likely hire the same guide we had in 2017 whom everyone just loved. Our hotel here is right on the waterfront in the thick of all the action.

Finally, we move on to Provence with our stay in Arles. Located on the Rhone river, Arles' fame is sealed by the extraordinarily well-preserved Roman arena, Les Arènes, at the city's heart, and backed by an impressive variety of other stones and monuments, both Roman and medieval. It was the key city of the region in Roman times . It's a very interesting and cute, compact Medieval town that will make a great base to explore some of the many ancient towns that are within easy driving distance that we will have optional tours including the stunningly beautiful Aix-en-Provence , the immaculately preserved town of Avignon that's enclosed by medieval walls, the picturesque Provencal village of Gordes much favored by Parisian media personalities, film directors and artists; the immaculate preserved villages of Luberon.

Includes:
10-nights hotel accommodations (double occp.)
3-nights in Santa Margherita, 4-nights in Nice, 3 nights in Arles
Daily breakfast
Chartered bus with some site-seeing tours in route to our destinations

Not Included:
International Air (see webpage for our recommended air)

TAHITI DREAM VACATION I

Needs a location

Tahiti I Dream Vacation - Moorea, Bora Bora, Tahiti

5-nights at the Mai Tai Resort in Bora Bora
5-nights at the Manava Resort in Moorea
1-night on Papeete, Tahiti at the Manava Resort
Price - Just $3,100 without international air

This trip will have it all - 11-nights of island hopping bliss. We'll start off with 5-nights on Bora Bora. We will fly on prop planes soon after we land in Papeete. Our stay here is at a great hotel called Mai Tai Hotel. We've brought several groups here as well and it's just perfect. Most people will get oceanview rooms (sign up early to guarantee) but you may also upgrade at this hotel to beachfront or over-water bungalows (see info below). It’s the perfect location where we are able to walk to several restaurants in the neighborhood rather than depend on the resort. Yes, it's true that Bora Bora and Moorea CAN be expensive, but done right, where you can walk to local restaurants, it is no more expensive than home. Well have more great tours planned here including a 4-wheel drive tour, a wave runner tour, snorkeling circle island tour where you can pet sting rays, scuba diving and more.

Next up - 5-nights on Moorea. This is a small island that is mostly unchanged over the last 50 years. It's quaint pensions and cute restaurants, palm trees that dip over the water and the dreamy, multi-hued water in the lagoons that the reef protects. We’ve been given an incredible group discount at the beautiful Manava Resort, a truly upscale, 4-star resort situated in a picturesque setting with an infinity pool, white sand beach and over-water bungalows. We've stayed here many times now and everyone always loves it.

There’s plenty of great sightseeing and tours to do in Moorea including scuba diving and their famous shark feeding, snorkeling with sting rays, dolphins and whales, visiting off-shore motu’s (small islands), 4-wheel jeep safari, motor
scooter rentals where you can ride around the whole island or just relaxing by the pool. Once again, this resort is walking distance to several great restaurants that are not overly expensive. Restaurants will even send vans to pick people up.

The stated price is in Garden Rooms but we also have Duplexes, Gardenpool Bungalows, Beach Bungalows and Overwater Bungalows reserved. See info below regarding upgrades. All have air conditioning, television and mini bar. The garden pool bungalows offer their own private plunge pool! If you’ve always fantasized about staying in an over-water bungalow, this is your best chance with our group discount. Our stay will also include the fabulous breakfast buffet.

Lastly, we fly back to the main island of Tahiti called Papeete where we'll spend the last night. This is another very nice hotel called Manava with a great view back on the island of Moorea. There's some local fresh seafood trucks walking distance from our hotel that we'll take you to.

We’ll be flying non-stop (just 8-1/2 hours) from LA to Tahiti on Tuesday night to spend a very full 11-days in paradise returning the evening of June 25th. We get terrific group rates from our hotels due to our frequent visits over many years so this really is a very good price for this luxury vacation. $200 deposit will sign you up.

INCLUDES:
11-nights accommodations (double occ.)
All ground transportation
Daily Breakfast
Special BBQ night in Moorea with entertainment (a $72 value)

DOES NOT INCLUDE:
International air

Bora Bora is an island that is completely magical. Undoubtedly the most celebrated island in the South Pacific - Bora Bora is French Polynesia's leading lady. Her beauty is unrivaled and her fame, unwavering. Bora Bora is one of the few places on earth that everyone hopes to witness in their lifetime—and once you see it, you are forever enamored. The inevitable love affair with this island begins right before you touch down. The view from the plane window is a moment you will not soon forget. Have your camera in hand as you begin your descent and prepare for the moment when iconic Mount Otemanu comes into view. From that point on, each experience will only continue to exceed even your highest expectations. Once seen, Bora Bora is never forgotten. From the day you arrive until the moment you part ways, you will be in awe of how her soaring mountain peaks, turquoise lagoon and luxuriant overwater bungalows somehow look even more spectacular than the pictures.

We’ll be flying non-stop (just 8-1/2 hours) from LA to Tahiti on Tuesday night to spend a very full 11-days in paradise returning the morning of July 10th. We get terrific group rates from our hotels due to our frequent visits over many years so this really is a very good price for this luxury vacation. $200 deposit will sign you up.
