Social, sensual, clothing-optional sailing …Has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Ok, I suppose we have a biased opinion – we’ve already earned our sea legs before on our gay sailing trip in Croatia. We love sailing trips which is why we’re doing our next one to Greece this summer and why we’re encouraging you to embark at your earliest leisure. The experience is both vast and unforgettable, yet intimate and tantalizing. Everything to Sea is a new sailing company offering relaxing trips across the Indonesian seas, visiting exotic islands while enjoying a care-free and naked experience… if you desire. That’s right, a clothing-optional cruise through uninhabited islands…  you can’t tell me that doesn’t sound appealing.


The first thing you might think of on a gay sailing trip is the seamen. Yes, the men. We can all appropriately appreciate the alluring male physique. Not only of other men, but yourself included. Going on a gay sailing trip is purely “you” time – meant to be celebrated and pampered, in a non-indulgent kind of way. With Everything to Sea you can enjoy massages, body shaving services, sunbathing, and snorkeling activities. But within just a few hours, you’ll be socializing and meeting new guys – cabin crew included. The boat is crewed by men of all ages from different walks of life ensuring a diverse and rich engaging experience. Who knows? Maybe the end of the trip you’ll even consider yourself an international sailor, having crossed streams with even the most unlikely of seamen.


It would be to easy to sell you on the beautiful views of a gay sailing trip across exotic locations and blissful seas, so I’m not going to even cheekily go there. The views I am talking about are those of your humble and relaxed crew and boat mates, those who went on the trip with you. Everyone who goes on these sailing trips go for the same reason… to enjoy themselves and the other men around them. Sit back and appreciate the views of exotic men, too. The atmosphere is relaxed and non-pretentious which is probably one of the best reasons to go. Here you won’t find guys who are too this or too that. You’ll find other men with goals just like you: guys there to spend time away, enjoying the views of calm waters, distant lands, and the men who’ve come along, too. This cruise in particular travels across the Flores Sea – exploring islands small and large… getting away from societies, and instead focusing on our natural world. Au naturel, indeed! Get to know these unfamiliar lands with activities such as hiking or snorkeling, while an undercurrent of sensuality pervades the air.

Clothing-Optional Sailing

I know what you’re thinking- and it’s probably true. One of the greatest things about going on a gay sailing trip is the liberty to let it all hang out- and you can interpret that any way you want. Obviously, we could talk about the most salient reason one would go on a sailing trip: vacation and disconnection.Let’s face it. We all have jobs. We all work hard. And, therefore, we should all reward ourselves for being an adult in the real world. What could put you in a more relaxed mood, than an all-male sailing trip in calm waters – where you’re allowed to let yourself hang loose? Think about it: vast open water, sporadic stops to see new places and try new food, and the universally understood (but not necessary) right to free-ball. Go ahead, let it all hang out. You deserve it.
