Ever since 2018, we have been hosting our own gay sailing trip each summer. Our first hosted trip started in Croatia and then the following year we sailed the Greek Islands. Since we first started our own trips in 2018 we have hosted over 50 guests on some amazing summer adventures.

We've enjoyed getting to know readers of our blog and our social media followers since we all share the same passion. We've had a blast on all these trips and gotten such great feedback from our guests that we've decided to expand our hosted trips in 2022 and 2023. In fact, we recently sent out a survey to get feedback on where you'd like to travel with us. The data came back with an overwhelming interest in 3 destinations—Spain, Greece and Croatia—and we can't say we're surprised! 

While all incredibly different, each country offers amazing travel opportunities. Croatia and Greece are amazing for sailing and Spain is laid back and gay-friendly. So for 2022, we're excited to announce that we'll be hosting not just one, but two gay sailing trips to both Croatia and Greece. And in addition, we've decided to host our first land tour in Spain where we'll be exploring Barcelona and Sitges. All of our friends and followers are invited to join us on any (or all!) of these trips in 2022.

Want to learn more? Check out the three trips below and let us know if you're able to join and travel with us to these incredible destinations.

Gay Group Tour of Barcelona and Sitges hosted by Two Bad Tourists

Dates: May 11-17, 2023
Destination/Route: Barcelona and Sitges, Spain
Trip Type: Gay group trip (10-20 guests)
Hosted by: Two Bad Tourists, yep that’s us!

Spain is an amazing destination and it's one of the most progressive places in the world for the LGBT+ community. We've partnered with The Queer Travel who helped assemble the itinerary of this gay Spain group tour and will manage the reservations as well as all the on-the-ground logistics. This will be an awesome gay group trip so you can come with a friend, that special someone or even come alone. In fact, many guests on our hosted trips are solo travelers so you won't be alone and you can make new friends while we explore together. Spain is famous around the world for its cultural traditions, great beaches, history and welcoming atmosphere. As the third country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage back in 2005, it’s no surprise that Spain is welcoming to the LGBT+ community. For the 2nd year in a row, we'll be your hosts on this incredible trip to Barcelona and Sitges where you can tickle your imagination with images of flamenco dancers in the night, sounds of wine glasses clashing amongst Spanish banter, infinite tapas landing on your table and the sea breeze lightly brushing your skin as the water crashes onto the coast. The Spaniards live with passion and a thirst for life. Open your heart, mind and drink it in. Let us show you the magic of this amazing destination.

Greece Gay Sailing hosted by Two Bad Tourists

Destination/Route: Round trip from Athens, Greece
Type: Small Boat (8 guests per boat)
Dress code: Clothing-optional
Hosted by: Two Bad Tourists, yep that’s us!

Due to the past years’ success and popularity of our sailing trips in both Croatia and Greece, we are expanding and hosting both a Croatia and a gay Greece gay sailing trip in the same summer season, separated by just a couple of months. So depending on your choice of destination or available time off, you can join us on either one, or both! For Greece in 2022 we specifically chose Athens as the departure port since it makes booking flights simple with lots of direct options from Europe and abroad. The itinerary from Athens features a variety of islands and mainland ports including Hydra, Spetses, Porto Heli, Ermioni, Poros and Agistri. This group of islands known as the Saronics offers picturesque and energetic stops where you can discover local culture, classical architecture and the best of Greek cuisine, all while enjoying breathtaking islands, ports and local hospitality. It's the side of Greece where sailors gravitate due to it's gentle winds and calm seas and is the perfect sailing spot. Add on a few days in Athens before or after the trip to explore the history of this Ancient Greek city.
