With GNI as sponsor, Source Events continues the tradition of gay cruises with these nude voyages on the vintage tall sailing vessel Mandalay. A new owner, Windjammer Sailing Adventures, refurbished this majestic schooner in 2012. Although unrelated to previous owners, the line is committed to restoring the best ‘Jammer traditions, such as rum swizzles, captain’s story time, bare feet on teak decks, and optional participation in raising the sails to the stirring strains of Amazing Grace, to name just a few.
Inaccessible to large cruise ships, the Grenadines are a yachtsman’s dream of exotic islands, charming harbors, quaint shops, bars, and cafés, deserted beaches, and smooth sailing. These cruises sail back to back — travel on one or the other, or take both for a 13-night voyage! The ship currently accommodates up to 58 passengers (at double occupancy) for an intimate, private yacht experience.
Status: Premium cabins on both cruises are sold out; only standard cabins are available.

A Vitambi Springs membership is required for all visitors, but is available at a nominal charge.
* Nudity policy: During designated Naturists at Vitambi Springs (N-VS) weekends only, nudity is permitted anywhere within the gates except inside Big Oak Lodge (which houses Registration, Bolo Café, Bongo Bar, Safari Outfitters General Store, and administrative offices), where a minimum of a wrap (e.g., sarong, towel, etc.) must be worn over the mid-section of the body at all times without exception, per county health department requirements.
On all other dates, minimum cover as described above is required everywhere in the Lake District (see map) at all times without exception. As marked by signs, clothing is optional in the Garden Quarter, which includes the pool compound and remote camping clusters, as well as in the vast wilderness areas to the south. Full awareness of and compliance with the nudity policy will provide a more comfortable experience for all.
Gay and lesbian chambers of commerce (sometimes called business guilds) exist to promote their members’ businesses, which typically include all or most of the gay or gay-friendly resorts in their areas. Always consult such resources, if they exist in the area where you will be traveling.
Gay and lesbian community centers (U.S., Canada, and a few others or worldwide) also offer some listings of local businesses, including resorts. Always consult such resources, if they exist in the area where you will be traveling.
Mainstream convention and visitors’ bureaus are becoming increasingly aware of the gay and lesbian component of their local tourism. Those in major cities and some lesser ones have begun to add a gay/lesbian section to their web sites, with a focus on accommodations. (If it’s not plainly identified, look for phrases including the words, “Rainbow,” “Pride,” or variants of “LGBT.”)
Local Pride organizations (InterPride members or worldwide) may also provide links to businesses, including resorts, since they realize that people may be traveling from elsewhere to attend their festivals and related events.
