Each member of St. Croix Scuba's staff of dorsal-fin-less divers has at least eight years of diving experience and are PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) certified. During a Discover Scuba Diving lesson, this fleet of skilled aquapeople will teach budding divers the ins and outs of scuba equipment and the basic concepts of breathing underwater during a 30-minute class. Then, novice divers will spend an hour exploring the depths of an indoor pool and experiencing the weightless sensation of breathing underwater, which is similar to falling off a mechanical bull after a full body wax. You must be 12 years old and older to scuba dive, and be sure to bring a swimsuit and towel.

Hosted by an eclectically elegant collection of inns and museums peppered throughout the St. Croix River Valley, the 2011 Chocolate March launches guests on self-guided, cocoa-centric excursions. Guests munch on chocolate delicacies and take in architectural desserts with chocolate-dipped innkeepers at five separate stops, one of which will feature a wine pairing, on the Sunday jaunts (different destinations are featured each weekend). Depending on their chosen date, chocolate hunters can relax under the mannered, leaf-shaded porticos of Rosewood's Queen Anne mansion, take in the brick-draped Gilded Age grandeur of the Water Street Inn, or plot a sweet rustic retreat or candy-coated coup d'état by Wissahickon Farms' general store façade and peppermint-stick split-rail fence.
