Singles SCUBA and Snorkel Retreat St Croix  
Travel/Trip
  • Date:
  • March 8-14, 2019
  • Location:
  • Frederiksted, Region, Virgin Islands
  • Address:
  • The Frederiksted Pier

Spend a week on a beautiful, live-aboard sailboat cruising, diving and snorkeling around St Croix with 9 other conscious, adventurous, fun singles from around the world! St Croix is in the US Virgin Islands and is one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean. 

*There are only 10 spots availiable for 5 men and 5 women.* 

In-JOY snorkeling, SCUBA diving (no experience required), swimming, group meditations, land excursions and playful games while living on-board an eco-conscious 104’ sailboat.

There are spectacular dive sites all around St Croix and we will be exploring them via SCUBA diving, free diving and snorkeling. Your host, Jill Crosby, owner/founder of the Conscious Dating Network, home of www.SpiritualSingles.com, GreenSingles.com and many other conscious dating sites that all share the same, large database will be facilitating the trip. Jill also enjoys distance swimming and welcomes any ocean swimmers on the trip! 

If you have never lived aboard a boat for any length of time (not a cruiseship, but a boat), you're in for an experience of a lifetime! Being on and in the water with a group of conscious, crazy, creative singles and the crew fosters a sense of community in addition to a deeper connection to the ocean, the beings that live in and around the sea and yourself. 

If this trip calls to you, take action now to reserve your spot, as this one fills up quickly! You must email Jill to schedule a personal interview to be sure its a good fit (please read everything here and then email Jill--see below for email info). 

St. Croix is truly a hidden gem in the Caribbean. Part of the US Virgin Islands, but worlds apart from the usual. Just 35 miles south of St. Thomas, St. John and BVIs it is the largest of the USVIs and also the most dramatic. At 84 miles square and highest elevation at Mount Eagle of 1,165ft, St Croix boasts beautiful beaches, rain forests, salt marshes, desert, and plains. But the diversity and beauty doesn’t stop at sea level. We will be exploring many beautiful dive sites and under water is equally as spectacular. You don't have to be a scuba diver to go on this trip, the snorkeling is beautiful too! And, if you'd like to learn the basics of scuba diving, you can!

Take a break from your everyday routines, cell phones, computers and relax, laugh, swim, dive and play! 

We will be spending some time meditating on the top deck under the stars at night in addition to playing some crazy fun games that will have you in stitches. 

This trip will allow you to be in the flow and really live in the now. There will be plenty of time for journaling, reading, meditating, sharing and connecting with each other. 

Your host is Jill Crosby, owner/founder of the Conscious Dating Network featuring www.SpiritualSingles.com and www.GreenSingles.com along with many other dating sites that all share one, large database.

Jill is a relaxed, "in the flow", playful group leader. She has been on this boat several times and loves sharing this experience with conscious, fun singles! She has been scuba diving for over 30 years and is an experienced distance ocean swimmer. Jill also is an amatuer photogragher and loves to shoot beautiful nature shots and macro (close up) photos. 

Jill naturally facilitates letting go, having fun, being present and connecting to one's Divine Presense, in addition to whatever comes through for each particular group. She is a certified, clinical hypnotherapist and enjoys helping others release old programs and beliefs that have been preventing them from living a truly soul-inspired, synchronistic life.  

Please email Jill for more details and to make sure it’s a good fit for you. SCUBA experience is not required, however, if you are certified, you will be able to experience some phenomenal dives. If you would like to try SCUBA diving, you can take a “Try SCUBA” course where you will learn the basics and be able to do 2 dives with an instructor (you can purchase more dives if you like). You can also take a "refresher course" if it's been a while since you've dove. The instructors are very experienced and always have your safety in mind. If you don't want to SCUBA, you can SNORKEL. 

Jill will match you up with a roommate, as most people will be coming alone (not with friends). Most of the cabins have bunk beds and you can request the upper or lower bunk according to your preference and/or needs.

2 of the cabins have a head (bathroom) and shower, so those cabins are the higher priced ones (see below). The other cabins share a common bathroom and shower. All cabins have a sink. The sooner you book, the more options you will have!

Water Temperature: 77-80 F (25-27C) 3mm full suit or shorty recommended

*All interested parties need to go through a brief phone interview with Jill before booking, just to be sure that intentions and energy are compatible.  

This particular trip is for straight (heterosexual) singles. Sign up with no expectations of meeting somone special, but rather to have fun and connect with everyone. You will make some great friends and who knows...

Cancellation Policy:
Conscious Dating Network will not offer refunds for charters cancelled or shortened due to adverse weather, acts of God, illness/injury or events not within the reasonable control of Juliet Sailing and Diving and/or Conscious Dating Network. We strongly suggest that you obtain travel insurance for your trip.

No refunds will be given for late arrivals or early departures or if improper documentation results in denied plane boarding for entry into foreign countries. 

  • If you have to cancel your retreat, please inform us by email ASAP.

  • If you (or Jill) finds someone to fill your space, who pays in full and is approved by Jill, then only your initial deposit is non-refundable. 
  • In the very unlikely event that the trip has to be cancelled, Conscious Dating Network will not be able to refund your money, since we have to pay the boat months in advance and they do not refund this money to us. This occurrence is so rare it is hardly worth mentioning, but it is a good reason to consider buying travel insurance. 

Trip Insurance:
We strongly recommend Trip Cancellation/interruption Insurance. We recommend that you contact:

CSA Travel Protection at: www.csatravelpro.com or phone: 800-348-9505.

Physical Qualifications:

To go on this trip you need to be able to climb a short wooden ladder that brings you from the cabin area to the upper, main deck. Also, when we enter the water we do a giant stride from the boat. It's about a 4 foot drop to the water. There is a "stairway/ladder" to get back on the boat after snorkeling or diving. Nothing is very strenuous or difficult, however, it's worth mentioning just to be sure. Everyone should be comfortable in the water and have some basic swimming skills and ideally be SCUBA certified and experienced. 

Once you have made your deposit we will email you all of the details including what you need to bring. $700.00 US is the non-refundable deposit. Balance due before December 15, 2018.
