My first time on a sailing trip, and I could not have made a better choice. I enjoyed myself from start to finish! Fantastic company, beautiful beaches, swimming, Caribbean nightlife, wildlife...not to mention the freedom of sailing! I’ve since been to Greece with Gaysail, and that was also a 5 star trip. Highly recommended!
Wilco van der Mersch11 sep. 2018(Translated by Google) Last week I experienced one of the most amazing journeys of my life with GaySail. Two boats, 22 new friends, sun, sea, beach, good food and good wine. It was a journey never to be forgotten. Our skipper Mark was always friendly and taught us the tricks of sailing. Kok Kia always provided a great breakfast and lunch with fresh ingredients. Consideration was given to certain dietary requirements or suggestions for meals. Thank you Kia for the delicious beet salad! The group was very mixed, both in terms of age and origin, and personalities. The group consisted mainly of Americans, but also English and people from other parts of the world. The crew consisted mainly of Dutch people. When classifying the cabins, single people and couples were taken into account. Single people, for example, were placed in a single-person or bunk bed. Although we were with two boats, there was plenty of time to get to know the people on the other boat. For example, during the daily swimming stops around lunch, the visits to the islands and the dinners. The sailing trip went from Mykonos via Pharos, Ios, Santorini, Ios and Naxos back to Mykonos. The sailing was a good change between heavy swell and mirror-smooth water. During sailing, it was regularly asked if someone wanted to take over the helm. The rest could now relax on the benches or enjoy the sun on the front deck. Especially when mooring and unmooring (almost) everyone was assigned a task. From throwing and knotting the bunches to lowering the anchor or placing the fenders. Although I thought it was very exciting in advance to go on a gay sailing trip as a 27-year-old, the organization and the group have more than lived up to my expectations. The atmosphere on the boat was always good, everyone was nice to each other and was left in its value. I have laughed a lot and experienced beautiful things. To be repeated. (Original) Afgelopen week heb ik één van de meest geweldige reizen van mijn leven beleefd met GaySail. Twee boten, 22 nieuwe vrienden, zon, zee, strand, lekker eten en goede wijn. Het was een reis om nooit meer te vergeten. Onze schipper Mark was altijd vriendelijk en heeft ons de kneepjes van het zeilen geleerd. Kok Kia zorgde telkens weer voor een geweldig ontbijt en lunch met verse ingrediënten. Er werd rekening gehouden met bepaalde dieetwensen of suggesties voor maaltijden. Dankjewel Kia voor de heerlijke bietensalade! De groep was erg gemengd, zowel qua leeftijd als afkomst als persoonlijkheden. De groep bestond vooral uit Amerikanen, maar ook Engelsen en mensen uit andere werelddelen. De bemanning bestond voornamelijk uit Nederlanders. Bij het indelen van de hutten was rekening gehouden met alleenstaanden en stellen. Alleenstaanden werden bijvoorbeeld in een eenspersoons- of stapelbed geplaatst. Hoewel we met twee boten waren was er genoeg tijd om ook de mensen op de andere boot te leren kennen. Bijvoorbeeld bij de dagelijkse zwem-stops rondom de lunch, de bezoeken aan de eilanden en de diners. De zeilreis ging van Mykonos via Pharos, Ios, Santorini, Ios en Naxos weer terug naar Mykonos. Het zeilen was een goede afwisseling tussen flinke deining en spiegelglad water. Tijdens het zeilen werd geregeld gevraagd of iemand het roer wilde overnemen. De rest kon ondertussen relaxen op de banken of genieten van de zon op het voordek. Met name bij het afmeren en ontmeren werd (bijna) iedereen een taak toebedeeld. Van het gooien en knopen van de trossen, tot het laten zakken van het anker of het plaatsen van de stootwillen (fenders). Hoewel ik het vantevoren erg spannend vond om als 27-jarige alleen op een gay zeilreis te gaan heeft de organisatie en de groep mijn verwachtingen meer dan waargemaakt. De sfeer op de boot was altijd goed, iedereen was aardig tegen elkaar en werd in zijn waarde gelaten. Ik heb veel gelachen en mooie dingen meegemaakt. Zeker voor herhaling vatbaar.GaySail (eigenaar)13 sep. 2018(Translated by Google) Thanks Wilco, we hope to welcome you on board again soon!
Dank Wilco, we hopen je snel weer aan boord te mogen verwelkomen!

Sandy Miller24 sep. 2018I am so excited to write this review of the GaySail of Greek Isles. I can tell you that now having completed the GaySail cruise that departed Mykonos on September 1st, to Paros, Ios, Santorini, Naxos, and back to Mykonos, it was the best vacation we have had in our 12 years as a couple. It was so much more than we expected. The GaySail trip consisted of two boats, and a total of 23 guys, counting passengers and crews. The crews were professional, safety minded, and caring. Our crew was Mark, Kia, and Brett. The passengers were of many nationalities, but predominately American. Our ages ranged from about 25 years old to about 65 years old, and everyone on our boats got along really well. You will spend most of the time during the day with just the group of guys on your boat, but there is still plenty of time where you are able to meet and mingle with the other boat’s passengers, so you get to know them as well. Every night you go as a group to dinner on the island, and you will see some of the most fantastic sunsets you can imagine. During the day you will stop for lunch in a cove. Both boats will anchor and you will have time for a quick swim before lunch. Lunches vary depending on the cook. Each boat has a different cook and their daily lunch menus vary as well. One night in the week everyone will gather on a secluded beach for a BBQ. That was actually one of my favorite activities. It was awesome - a very fun time. Each night you will go on the island to have dinner. The food was amazing. Our captain, Mark, has made wonderful contacts on the islands and he knows great restaurants and unbelievable places to go to get the best sunset views. Places that you would not know about if you were just traveling on your own. And if you are traveling with your bf, partner or husband, there are so many romantic spots to get that special sunset picture. Life on the boat would best be described as close quarters. Just understand that when you book. If you have ever been in a camper or motor home, everything is designed to make the best use of the space that is provided. This is the same for the sailboats. They are sailboats where you have all the basic necessities – all of your basic needs are met. The sleeping quarters can accommodate couples or they can accommodate singles very comfortably. You will have sleeping arrangements for 9 passengers and 2 crewmembers. The food on board is fresh and lunch is cooked fresh daily. If you have a special dietary need, just let the cooks know and they are very willing to make special arrangements for you. Breakfast is your basic continental breakfast consisting of yogurt, cereal, breads, and juice. Anytime you are docked in a marina, there are usually little coffee cafes and bakeries close by for you to go grab something if you have that craving. We left the boat on the last morning with emotional hugs of goodbye with new friends that we made. It felt like we were saying goodbye to family members. It truly was an awesome experience. After our experience on this vacation, we are already discussing booking one of the Croatia GaySails next year.GaySail (eigenaar)25 sep. 2018Thank you Sandy for your great review! It was a pleasure having you guys on board and we hope to welcome you in Croatia next year!

Knut Skåla 38 weken geledenWe sailed with GaySails for a week in February in the Caribbean. The trip started in St. Maarten and we visited amazing bays and beaches there, in Anguilla and St. Barth. The scenery while at sail was unbelievably beautiful as well. I love to sail and got to help out, and my husband who is not a sailor got to chill and bask in the sun. Perfect! When booking this trip we were a little hesitant about spending a week on a boat with strangers. It did not take long for my worries to disappear, and we made new friends from around the world. Of course every group will be different, but I think the amazing setting brings out the best and most relaxed version of people. I certainly felt very blissed out. The crew did a fantastic job in welcoming us, serving great food and getting us safely around the Caribbean. Thank you Huug and Eric!GaySail (eigenaar)38 weken geledenThanks Knut for your great review. I will forward the compliments to the crew. We hope to welcome you on board again! ??️?⛵️

Jonathan Schmidt 39 weken geleden on Google Business GaySail:Had an awesome time 2 weeks ago on the Gailsail, Puerto Rico! The owner, Mark, is always very willing to accommodate requests like choice of beverages and having some flexibility with the ports of call and beaches. Puerto Rico was unique as it was easy for me to fly from Missouri in the center of the USA to San Juan, Puerto Rico with just 1 plane change, and no customs for Americans since it is a territory of the US. Additionally, San Juan was welcoming with good food and good people! Mark found some good beaches for snorkeling and Omar is a wonderful cook--more food than I could eat! Dinners on shore are always an adventure but he found some good places for us to eat considering this was his first Puerto Rico run. This was my second gailsail and not my last! I will never sail those big, crowded, impersonal cruise ships again! Love really getting to know everyone on board the gaysail as more than just a person you have meals with. Mark even teaches you how to sail if you want! For someone who is prone to motion sickness I was fine with preparation. Mark always watched out for my safety considering I am not very coordinated! Looking forward to my next gaysail! Where will it be?? He gives me so many choices it's hard to decide!GaySail (eigenaar)39 weken geledenThanks Jonathan for your kind review! We hoping to welcome you on board soon again, somewhere around the world!
