Have you heard of Two Bad Tourists, gay bloggers David and Auston? They run a well-known LGBT+ travel blog with amazing guides on international gay-friendly destinations, festivals, and events with recommendations for dining, gay nightlife, hotels, tours, sightseeing and more. Recently, they featured Everything To Sea in an article called, “Five Types of Male Travelers.” The post serves to answer a question that we get very frequently, “Who exactly comes on the naked sailing trips?” We’ve reposted the article here for you to get all the answers.
There are dozens of reefs in the Coral Triangle that attract snorkelers and scuba divers alike. We’ve been sailing in the area for several years, and we’ve done an extensive amount of underwater curation. We take our travelers to the very best sites – some of which fly completely under the radar, unbeknownst to the crowds. In this blog post, we’ll take you through the top five snorkeling spots that every guy on an Everything To Sea trip gets to experience – and yes, you can be naked, if you want. Please excuse the generic location names – we want to keep these reefs our little secret!
As the children’s author Dr. Seuss wrote in The Foot Book, “Left foot, Right foot. Feet, Feet, Feet. How many, many feet you meet.” On Everything To Sea trips, we do meet a lot of bare feet on board our boat. In fact, the first thing we tell our travelers when they step onto the deck is, “Guys, shoes off please!” In this blog post, let’s take a peek at the subject of living life barefoot through the mind of Max, co-founder of Everything To Sea.
When was the last time you really connected with nature? I’m not talking about naturism – “being naked”. I literally mean nature. Flora and fauna.
I know, I know… we’re always going off on how great it is “to be naked”. Au naturel. And it is – don’t get me started! But in this post, I’m going to share a stream of consciousness on the nothing-less-than-fucking-amazing natural world.
Over the years, we’ve had the pleasure of sailing with interesting men from all walks of life, and Tony is no exception. He’s a veterinarian by day, and a Dom, escort, and porn star by night. Tony inspired us with his unique, personal stories while aboard the August 2022 departure. We’d like to highlight Tony in this post as part of our blog series called “Meet Another Everything To Sea Traveler.”
Let’s take a look – literally – at all things below the water, on Everything To Sea trips. In this post, we’ll minimize the words, and focus on images of things we see IN the sea… Get ready for some amazing photos of sea life that showcase incredible underwater interactions.
In the 1990s, marine biologists finally broke through observer bias and societal hush-hush, and came out about what’s really going on under the sea. From little Nemo the clownfish to Free Willy the orca, several species have been observed flipping genders and flopping around with the same sex. These “sea queer-tures” are the real ones making waves with copulation, mutual masturbation, gang banging, courtship, and cuddle time. Things really are better and wetter under the sea.
These are our top 3 favorite sea queer-tures that can all be found in the Coral Triangle – where we run our sailing trips.
The world is an amazing place and traveling can make you feel invincible. It’s no coincidence it’s so addictive. However, there is a science behind the joy of traveling. Check out this article that we found from TheDiscoverer.com about crazy facts that could change the way you travel – and give you even more reasons to head on another new adventure.
Our Communications Specialist Eddie Rahadian recently joined one of our cruises and, for him, it was nothing short of amazing. In this blog post, Eddie shares some of his personal favorite moments during the voyage.
Throughout the Western world, the practice of living naked appears to be gaining traction among a newer, younger audience. Check out this article that we found, written by Josh Sims for InsideHook.com.
While most of us like to think our own one-eyed monster is the largest creature of the deep blue sea, the reality is our entire physique shrinks compared to massive manta rays. But do not be intimidated, these gentle giants simply spend their lives gliding through the surf. Manta rays are a common sight on Everything To Sea’s voyages within the waters surrounding the many islands of Indonesia.
In this blog post, Everything To Sea’s Eddie Rahadian talked with Patrick Emmanuel, the founder of MaleBodyPoetry.net, in which he waxes on both male nudity and the beauty of nature. Check out our Q&A with the Hilderbeg-based guy below.
Sometimes we’re asked if cruises provide snorkeling options. We are EVERYTHING TO SEA, so it’d be crazy if we didn’t! Especially because we’re sailing in part of the famous Coral Triangle, dubbed “The Amazon of the Seas”. Picture a beautiful landscape under the sea, rich with marine plants, gorgeous coral, and the greatest diversity of coral reef fishes in the world.
Indonesia is a land of beautiful volcanoes – one of them is Mt. Batur, which is located in Bali. A lot of guys who sail with us want to extend their trips to explore the Island of the Gods, after their cruises conclude. Everything To Sea is happy to arrange Bali Add-On options – and we have many to choose from. One exciting activity is to climb Mt. Batur. It’s probably not for the faint-hearted… but the journey is definitely worth it. Check out this excerpt from the blog post on KeepCalmandWander.com, where the traveler describes his experience hiking up this amazing mountain.
“Blessed be the fruit” (we’ll send you five pictures of hot guys with fruit, if you can guess this reference. Just leave a comment in the section below). Surely you know about eggplants????, bananas????, and peaches????. In this blog post, Everything To Sea staff share their favorite fruits. For this list, we’re focusing on fruits that are native Indonesian and considered exotic to this Southeast Asian country.
It took nine months to navigate through a whole new world, when it came to sailing again during Covid-19. We had to, unfortunately, inform our passengers that our April, June, July, and August trips would be canceled due to the ongoing pandemic. But then, for the first time in almost a year, we set sail again! Here at Everything To Sea, we were able to navigate the new rules set in place by different countries and here in Indonesia, get back on the water.
We came up with COVID FAQs based on these new rules (which seemed to change daily), and we finally got back to doing what we love – sailing naked! Read personal thoughts from owners Max and Dave, and the passengers, too – on what it was like to travel again after a long quarantine.
Our itinerary takes you to what some might say is the most majestic hike you’ll ever experience. Padar Island is the third-largest island in the Komodo Island chain. It’s an island with a truly unique feature: three beaches with three different colors of sand! It also has an elevation just shy of 400 feet, making for extraordinary views. Check out this post we found on weseektravel.com – “Padar Island Hike – Best Sunrise Viewpoint in Indonesia?”
This is a blog about naked sailing, so why are we talking about lizards? Well, one of the experiences on Everything To Sea’s voyages takes you to some of the most remote Indonesian islands, where you will come across the rare Komodo dragon. And, they are fascinating! For starters, did you know that females don’t need a male to get pregnant?
The fauna in Flores varies from the Komodo dragons, to wild boars and deer, to Manta Rays swimming in the Coral Triangle. And the Wallace Line, which scientifically delineates species, is an altogether different aspect of this region.
