we connect you with the perfect mate to cruise with
Welcome to Cruising Match
, where we connect you with the perfect mate to cruise with. Our site uses leading edge technology to match sailing partners. Cruising Match started in the West Coast of British Columbia. As we set sail, we came into contact with boaters looking for companionship or just for crew and those without boats wanting to find mates who love being on the water. There was a need to develop this site where this community could engage with each other. We are a niche connection site with the goal of making quality matches. Cruising match.com is set to launch in 2016, and is open to people who are looking for cruising and romance on the open seas. Our free membership level gives you access to our community. When you have found the perfect mate and are ready to connect simply choose a membership level that suites you.
Beverly de Jong
Captain (Owner & Creator) I have just discovered the world of the sea on the West Coast of B.C. This is the dream life: sailing to marine islands only accessible by water with an abundance of sea life, beautiful sunsets, BBQs, shellfish, and the most interesting of anchorages. I also found many people who already knew the joys of the ocean and people who have boats without partners to share the experience. My friends said “Bev can you find me a man with a boat? I just love boating.” Or more simply “I love boats and I love men” Of course there were also the boat owners who wanted a crew-mate. So I decided to create this site so that people who share this love can find love. It’s a love love situation.
