The Shadow Cruise

JoCo Cruise attendees (a.k.a. “Sea Monkeys”) are an amazing and creative bunch of people. We provide ample venue spaces and time in the schedule for Sea Monkeys to organize and host their own events, creating what has come to be known as the Shadow Cruise. Sharing knowledge and interests, learning new skills, meeting with and getting to know others who share your particular enthusiasms—every year, the Shadow Cruise has hundreds of hours of things to offer every person on board.

Here’s a sampling of past Shadow Cruise events:

  • Jam sessions, song circles and singalongs
  • Music and comedy concerts
  • Crafting, writing, performing and maker workshops
  • Meetups, drinkups and mixers
  • Support groups
  • Tabletop and video gaming sessions
  • Cosplay (and non-cosplay) photo shoots
  • Speed meeting
  • Group meditation, yoga, and tai chi
  • Puzzle hunts and escape rooms
  • Dance lessons and social dances


Shadow Cruise event submissions for 2020 are now closed. It’s never too early to put on your thinking caps for 2021, though! Submissions for JoCo Cruise 2021 will open up in late 2020.

Want to see what types of events other folks have done? See the link below to several of our previous JoCo Cruise events schedules.

Same as above, but for 2018.
