Ten years ago, Toronto's own Robert Sharp did something daring and dreamy: he quit his job, took a year off, and traveled the world. However, this wasn't some fleeting journey of self discovery. Rob was scoping out the entire planet with his then-partner in life and business, Steven Larkin, looking for concrete destinations and experiences to share with the gay community, and OUT Adventures was born.
A decade later, the company has become one of the world's most highly regarded LGBT travel brands, with a broad range of escapes for like-minded men to choose from. Want to drag yourself out of your comfort zones? You could hike Kilimanjaro, Everest Base Camp, or even the iconic Inca Trail.
However, one area that's really growing for OUT Adventures is their boutique gay cruise offerings. They visited Indonesia last year (see video below for a taste of what you missed). They've planned a riverboat cruise of the Mekong River next year, chaperoned by Toronto's own Miss Conception. And they've been cruising Croatia for five years now (in fact, their Dalmatian Coast cruise always sells out).
Given the popularity of Croatia, and to celebrate five years cruising Europe's most beautiful coastlines, OUT Adventures has now launched a secondcruise along the country's Northern Adriatic Coast. Rob is also offering a fantastic 15% off tickets if you book before May 15. If you've never been on an OUT Adventure, this would be a perfect first foray.
