Elegy For Lonesome George

Lonesom George slowly meandering through a rocky landscape.

As we relaunch our Galapagos Gay Cruise we pay homage to the world’s last, POSSIBLY GAY, Pinta Island tortoise.

Five years after we last embarked, Out Adventures returns to Ecuador aboard our Galapagos Gay Cruise. Before we do, however, we must honour an important forefather.
