SMALL-GROUP ESCORTED GAY TOURS WORLDWIDE

Welcome to Venture Out – we’ve been creating small, custom LGBTQ+ tours worldwide since 1998. Our gay travel audience is very loyal, and more than half of them have taken at least three tours with us.

We offer upscale, small-group, guided trips for LGBTQ+ travelers (and occasionally their friends and family). We find unique accommodations and great dining on each of our tours.

Upcoming trips (2021-22) include Japan, Spain, Italy, a luxury yacht cruise in the Adriatic (Croatia), Greece, Chile, and an African safari. Each year we plan a new batch of gay tours — places we’ve never gone before as well as popular vacations from our 23-year history!

Our groups are small – usually 15 participants at the most. Each group is accompanied by a Venture Out tour manager, and that person is often the owner. We also work with professional tour guides in each destination country for our guided sightseeing.

Best Caribbean Gay Cruises for 2020 – The Nomadic Boys

“Aruba, Jamaica, oh I want to take ya
Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama…”

While there might not be a real “Kokomo” in the Caribbean (or at least there wasn’t until that Beach Boys’ song came out!) there are still so many incredibly beautiful islands to explore. From the colourful and lively San Juan to the lush and mountainous Grenada, the Caribbean has a great deal to offer.

Give us a Caribbean beach or two any day. Or better still, hop aboard a Caribbean gay cruise and you get to visit a whole bunch of them. With over 700 islands, islets and reefs to explore, island hopping this lush area of the world with a fabulous group of gay guys is definitely the way forward!

When it comes to gay cruises in the Caribbean, there are many options. Each one is unique in its own way. We’ve put together our list of some of the best ones you need to check out. Note that we have divided our guide up into two parts: the first featuring gay only cruises, the second, a gay group mixed with a larger group.

RSVP 35TH ANNIVERSARY CARIBBEAN CRUISE

RSVP is well known in the gay cruise industry, and they’ve been around! This cruise celebrates their 35th anniversary.

The RSVP Caribbean Cruise takes place aboard the Holland America Line’s Nieuw Statendam, which oozes style, sophistication and sass! With an innovative entertainment centre, a theatre stage, dance club, and live music bar, the days spent at sea will feel just as exciting as the days spent exploring ashore.

Pink Iceland – Iceland Gay Tour Operator

Pink Iceland

Pink Iceland was founded in 2011 by Eva Maria and Birna who shortly thereafter asked one of their friends, Hannes (a.k.a. Sasi) to join the company. Their tiny start-up is now the first and foremost Queer travel, event and wedding planner in Iceland.

Now, having succeeded in their mission Pink Iceland employs seven full time members of staff as well as a few freelance tour guides at any given time. Many things have changed since those first years, not least the clientele which now sees many straight allies of the LGBTQI+ community seeking Pink Iceland’s help with planning their nuptials and/or travels in Iceland. This despite having never lost their queer focus. As Eva (Pink Mama) puts it: “We are proud of who we are and the community we serve. If anyone has a problem with that, we wouldn’t really want to work with them anyway!

We believe in creating unforgettable experiences and lasting memories. We will always try to match, or beat, online prices for accommodation, activities and services, while still offering 24/7 access to a real human being, ready willing and able to assist you with all your needs.
