What we're about

Thank you for checking out our group. Active Singles Adventures has been in San Diego for 25 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" and we have opened up our events on Meetup.
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.
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 outhttp://www.singlesinparadise.comfor all the details on our trips.

Our typical trip consists of 40 singles. We recently traveled to Italy, Tahiti, Kenya, China, Costa Rica, Belize, Honduras, Greece, Amsterdam, Belgium, Ireland, Galapagos and other exotic destinations - all with experienced guide and terrific group rates.

ULTIMATE FIJI VACATION

Needs a location

Here's one of our very popular trips that we're repeating with the only change of adding an extra night since you just can't get enough of paradise.
The Fiji Islands in the South Pacific are an archipelago of over 333 islands packed with attractions that can be found no where else. Fiji has an unspoiled, unique environment of extreme beauty and tranquility. Adrift for millennia in splendid isolation in the blue of the South Pacific it has escaped the evils of industrial progress. They are absolutely beautiful and offer plenty of activities and world class diving and snorkeling. This will be our 4th trip to Fiji and they keep getting better.
We will fly direct on Fiji Airways from LAX departing the evening of Tuesday, August 23rd and arriving very early on Friday (you lose Thursday due to the time zone) giving us a full 10-days! We spend 3-nights on the mainland of Viti Levu at Denarau Island followed by 6-nights on Mololo Island (AKA Plantation Island). It's a perfect mix with a reasonable flight time and great accommodations.
Located in Nadi, Denarau Island is also a harbor that's very convenient for all of our tours, dining and nightlife. There are several amazing adventure tours in the jungle including 4x4 and jet boating, hiking to a great mud pool, cave and village and even zip lining. If you're anxious to scuba, then you can also arrange that while we're here in Denarau. On these mainland tours we will visit remote villlages to meet the natives which makes for a very cool experience as the Fijians are the warmest people you will ever find. On our tours you will learn about their culture, ceremonies and beliefs.They will make us feel welcome with their kava ceremonies.
We have some awesome tours set up for our 2 other free days on the mainland including a really cool hike with mud pools and a beautiful waterfall and the Saigatoka River tour with 4x4's, jet boating and a village and cave tour. You can also opt for zip lining. READ MORE ABOUT THE TOURS HERE (from 2018)
After our 3-days on the mainland we then ferry out to Malolo Island for our stay at Musket Cove resort. We have been to this island several times now and every group has loved it. Once again we will be staying at the fabulous Musket Island Resort. This amazing property is nestled on the 553 acre island of Malolo LaiLai, part of the Mamanuca Group of islands and is just 10 miles offshore. Malolo is renowned for its pristine white sandy beaches and crystal blue waters. The snorkeling and diving in this area is off the charts - equal to, if not better than Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
Besides snorkeling and diving, other activities include golfing, massage and even surfing. We will also offer an optional full day private island hopping tour that will take us to several idyllic, very picturesque islands. There's even a really fun tour we added last year to this awesome party-type barge called Cloud Nine sounded with a beautiful reef. Our last group really loved it.
We took 70 people on our last Fiji trip and we are prepared to take another large group on this one. Cost for the 9-night package including air is just $3,650 which is a very good group rate. Plus, it's just an 11-hour non-stop flight from LAX! Don’t miss this one!

BEST OF AUSTRALIA - SYDNEY AND CAIRNS

Needs a location

This will be our 5th visit to the "Land Down Under" and we're doing it right. Come join us as we explore this wonderful country and take in the best tours. This is the Australia trip you've been waiting for - with a fun group of singles to the 2 most interesting places in the country without a whole lot of moving around. With this trip we will be spending 5-nights in Sydney, then 5-nights in Cairns, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef.

SYDNEY
We start off in Sydney where, over the course of 5 days, we'll have a chance to visit the top beaches and attractions. You will fall in love with this cosmopolitan city. Surrounded by water, beautiful beaches and scenic parks everywhere you turn, it's beautiful. We'll start off with a nice city tour to visit the highlights of Sydney - the Opera House & Harbour Bridge; see the shopping heart of the city; visit Sydney's trendy district of Oxford Street; travel through elegant Paddington with its terrace houses before arriving at the Pacific Ocean to see the superb coast cliff walk. We'll travel on to famous Bondi Beach, visit the beachfront promenade, enjoy a coffee or cool drink (at own cost) and see bronzed Aussie lifesavers & Sydney's best panoramic view. We'll return to Sydney via Double Bay, Kings Cross & city centre.

We'll also organize an optional tour to experience the Sydney Harbor Bridge Climb. You will need to wear suitable rubber soled shoes and be ready to wear special suits over your existing clothing. You will climb to the top of the Sydney Harbor Bridge some 130 meters above sea level.
Another fun way to see Sydney is by bike. We've really had fun with this one. Check out my video!

On past trips we also chartered a beautiful sailing yacht for a Sydney Harbor cruise that was so much fun. We had some good music going, some wine and the most spectacular scenery all around us! We'll be doing this again for sure.

On another optional tour we'll spend the day heading outside the city to the famous Blue Mountains. This fantastic Ecotour makes our way to the Great Dividing Range of Australia. We enjoy a delicious barbeque lunch including a selection of fine Australian wines with a cheese platter under the canopy of the Australian bush. Before returning to Sydney we drop into a hidden valley where we roam the area, seeking out the many kangaroos that graze in the wild (conditions permitting).

You'll have opportunities to take a seaplane tour, or go out jet-boating or you may want to take in a show or tour at the famous Opera House. There is so much to do in Sydney, this is not even scratching the surface! Plus, if you enjoy nightlife, there's an abundance in Sydney and we'll be walking distance to much of it at The Rock's area. This is where it's really all happening, so that's where we want to be.

CAIRNS
No Australia trip is complete without spending some time at the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, which is Cairns. Again, we'll be staying at the Novotel Oasis, a 4-star hotel right in the heart of Cairns. We'll have snorkel and scuba trips set up as well as some more adventure tours. Of course the diving is the best in the world, which I can vouch for. We will typically get quite a few divers on this trip, and you won't be disappointed. We'll take our divers and snorkelers to the most spectacular sites for the maximum number of hours on the outer Great Barrier Reef. In one day you will visit two magnificent sites where you will explore vast coral gardens, walls drop-offs, caverns and isolated pinnacles with an array of colorful marine life.

We've got river rafting set up on the famous Tully River and another optional tour aboard the luxury "Ocean Spirit", a 105-foot sailing vessel - the largest of her kind in the world. We'll take a sail/ cruise in the Great Barrier Reef to Michaelmas Cay, known as the Isle of the Birds. Divers will be able to put on some tanks and enjoy a very nice dive today as well. On our last trip, this was one of the most enjoyable days.
Another tour that's set up is an Aboriginal Culture, Sky Rail and Rainforest tour. This breathtaking journey, on one of the world's most scenic train routes, will take us through hand-hewn tunnels and across bridges with amazing views. We'll get on the Skyrail and enjoy the world's most beautiful rainforest experience.

What else? Well, of course along our journey you will have opportunities to see plenty of koala bears and kangaroo.

INCLUDES:
• All ground transportation
• 10-nights accommodations (double occ.)
• Daily Breakfast

DOES NOT INCLUDE:
• Optional tours

BEST OF NEW ZEALAND

Needs a location

New Zealand is one of the most beautiful places on earth. It is so natural and if you like adventure, it's the place to be. This will be our 4th trip and I can say with confidence that you will love this complete itinerary, taking in both the North and South Island! We’ll fly out of LAX on the 20th, and after crossing the international time zone we’ll land in Auckland on North Island on Thursday for 10 full days and nights in New Zealand.

We’ll start off with 2-days and nights in Auckland. This marvelous city, known as the “City of Sails”, is nestled between two harbors and a gulf full of islands. Auckland is as much about the sea as it is about the land. We’ll get to know the very friendly people and enjoy the sites. On our last trip we chartered a high performance sailboat and went out on a wonderful sail. Auckland is the home of the America's Cup and they take their sailing seriously. Our hotel is in prime position and walking distance to the harbor.

From there, we’ll head to Rotorua, the heartland of New Zealand’s Maori culture and also 11 major lakes. We'll have 3 nights here to enjoy all the sights and adventures of this amazing town. This is an extremely thermal area. You'll see geysers of hissing, steaming, scalding water roar from deep within the earth’s crust and hurl spray 100 ft into the air. While there we’ll set up tours to jet boat down the Waikato River, you can try the Zorb (rolling downhill in a ball like a hamster), try the skydiving simulator (you will experience weightlessness with this jet engine pushing the air up) and have fun with the luge track (a total blast) and many other fun adventures. We’ll also visit the famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves with it’s magical light display and amazing underground scenery commencing with the impressive Cathedral. We even discovered a new tour on our last trip called The Squeeze where a jetboat takes us down river into this cove where we wade into a tight canyon and into thermal water to a thermal waterfall!

Then, we’ll fly on to adventureland – Queenstown, birthplace of the bungee jump and the famous Shotover River Jet Boats. Talk about fun! We will set up a bunch of optional tours that will have us doing more river rafting, taking the famous Shotover Jet Boat tour and enjoying a day tour of the majestic Milford Sound. There is so much to do here including sky diving, paragliding another luge, hiking and fun nightlife. We’ll have 4-nights to enjoy this awesome town. Maybe you’ll even bungee jump! It’s going to be a wonderful active vacation full of incredible scenery and sites.

Cost, for this amazing singles vacation, including the 10-nights in 4-1/2 and 5--star hotels, domestic air, daily breakfast and ground transfers is just $2,550 That’s a great price! Plus, our dollar is now going much further than it did on our last trip here. Let’s get all our fun, adventurous people together for this one! $200 deposit to get signed up.
