We tasked our sales manager Kevin Robitaille with capturing the spirit of our Croatia: Gay Dalmatia Cruise. Nikon in hand, he snapped an incredible collection of photographs of not just the blissful beaches and sensational architecture. But also of the unforgettable men who joined us on the Adriatic.
His portraits delve into the essence of what we’re all about: Life partners sharing a quiet moment overlooking Dubrovnik. New friends swapping travel stories while suntanning on the upper deck. One man sits boat-side, legs dipped in the balmy waters while he takes the time to drip-dry.
Our Croatia: Gay Dalmatian Cruise wouldn’t be complete without the knowledge and warmth our local guide Livio Karavanic offers guests. With nearly 20 years’ experience, this man sure knows his way around, and being an international world traveller, he provides context that many guides are unable to.
Cannonball into the balmy Adriatic. Bite into Europe’s unsung culinary hero. And wander medieval cities and posh ports. All on our annual Croatia: Gay Dalmatia Cruise.
Below you’ll find an introduction to the aforementioned cities and ports we’ll enjoy on this continuously sold-out voyage. And if by blog’s-end we’ve piqued your interest, swim over to Stays that Slay: Cruising Croatia for a deep visual dive into the MV Futura — the private yacht we’ll indulge in for the length of our stay.
From the get-go, Out Adventures’ founder Rob has guided gays through Earth’s most remote destinations. The Land of Fire & Ice? Check. The sweltering Sahara? Check. The colourful cultures of India? Triple check.
The jewel of our Croatia Southern Dalmatia Gay Cruise is the MV Futura, a gleaming white mega-yacht built in 2013. She’s 156 feet long, 30 feet wide, and built to cruise the Aegean Sea at a speed of nine nautical miles. Here’s a little taste of what awaits when you join OUT Adventures in Croatia.
Matthew McLaughlin has helped make Out Adventures look its best since 2014. He’s a videographer, director, and founder of Bulldog Productions (named after Lucy, his Olde English Bulldogge). Every time he joins us, Matthew has his Lumix in-hand, ready to capture unexpected markets, elusive fauna and dazzling vistas.
Just back from our Vietnam & Cambodia Mekong River Cruise, Matt shares some of the most magical moments of his journey below.
To ensure guests get the most out of the safari, we’ll be accompanied by both a naturalist and professional photographer. The duo will host daily lectures below deck and join us on shore to help photograph the continent’s endless white vistas.
Below you’ll find a shortlist of the fauna we’ll most likely encounter.
Out Adventures teamed up with Bulldog Productions in Croatia to shoot our 2018 Never Lose Your Sense of Adventure campaign, premiering this coming Friday on the Out Adventures Blog.
Before the premiere, we wanted to introduce the campaign’s charismatic cover man, Scott Furman. To no one’s surprise, our digital marketing coordinator Carl Hiehn volunteered to connect with the dapper Daddy in L.A. via Skype.
Scroll down to read the full Q&A, including Scott’s take on charming Croatia, his personal approach to travel and how the campaign slogan Never Lose Your Sense of Adventure resonated with him. As an added bonus, Scott agreed to share some of his personal travel photos.
