If watching the pictures and videos of gay cruises like Atlantis  in the US or The Cruise in Europe doesn’t excite you at all, then you might want to consider another kind of gay cruises. Gay sailing cruises are the ultimate gay cruise experience, on well-equipped sailing yachts or luxury catamarans, in small groups, throughout the historical islands of Greece, along the rugged coast of Turkey, among the ancient cities of Croatia, off the white beaches of Saint Martin & Saint Barth and the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean, the Bahamas or in tropical Thailand.

You can join for 1 week, 2 weeks or more, in small international gay groups, with 1-3 sailing yachts,  10-30 guys, a mix of singles and couples of all ages. The sailing yachts and catamarans have 5-6 double cabins with double bed, twin beds or bunk beds. There's also a fully equipped galley with a cool box, toilets and showers.

During the trip, you can learn as much sailing as you want or improve your sailing skill but no sailing experience is needed. You can also simply enjoy the sea and the wind and soak up the sun on the front deck, have a nude swim and enjoy the food. There’s   plenty of time to explore some of the nearby islands and enjoy secluded bays, hike to ancient temples and amphitheaters, visit local markets and sip frappe in small cafes. The gay skippers know the best spots and local things to see and do. Breakfast and lunch are served on board. Dinner is served either in a nice restaurant or on board. 

In Greece, Turkey and Croatia you will sail on a 50 feet (15,5 meter) sailing yacht, a Bavaria 50 Cruiser (or similar). The ships have a huge outdoor sitting area, a sun deck including outdoor mattresses, a swimming platform with outside shower to use after a great dive in the blue sea. Inside is a salon and a well equipped kitchen.
