Adventure With Us!
Scuba Diving the Sea of Cortez
Come to Baja California Sur December 1—10, 2023 for an amazing 10-day LGBTQ-friendly dive trip on the beautiful 90-foot liveaboard, Quino el Guardian. We’ll see the best of what the southern Sea of Cortez has to offer. We’ll explore sunken ships, swim with seal lions, look for orcas, and see more spectacular tropical fish than we can count. Finding giant hammerhead sharks? Diving with giant schools of mobula rays, at night? This is the trip for you!
Motorcycling Portugal and Spain
Join us September 8—23, 2023 for an incredible LGBTQ-friendly motorcycle group ride in Portugal and Spain! We’ll visit the Douro Valley, where port comes from. We’ll cross into Spain to see historic towns dating back to the Roman Empire. Then we’ll explore the breathtaking Pyrenees mountain range with its unique Basque culture and heritage. And finally we’ll arrive on the southern coast to sink our toes into the sandy beaches of the Mediterranean Sea.
Baja California Sur for LGBTQ Scuba Divers
Mexico, including all of Baja, is generally considered a relatively tolerant and accepting place for LGBTQ+ individuals, with legal protections against discrimination and hate crimes in place. Same-sex sexual activity has been legal in Mexico since 1871, and same-sex marriage is legal throughout the country. Currently, Equaldex gives this area an 84 on its Equality Index. This is actually two points higher than the USA!
Why Use a Travel Advisor?
Wondering whether or not to use the services of a travel advisor, or a travel agent? Confused by the two terms? Wondering about the differences between them? Or even if there really are any differences? We’re here to help. The term “travel agent” dates back to the 19th Century, when Thomas Cook organized his first rail trip for paying clients, in 1845. By 1865 he had opened his first store front—the world’s first travel agency—on Fleet Street in London. It wasn’t long before travelers around the world were taking the firm’s advice: “Don’t just book it…. Thomas Cook it.” And for about 150 years or so, that’s mostly what travel agents did. They helped their clients book railway, steamship, and airline travel and hotel stays. And the best agents did a bit more than just selling tickets.
Portugal and Spain for LGBTQ Travelers
Travelers who are members of the LGBTQ community need to pay attention to which countries are safe and which countries have discriminatory policies for people outside the dominant paradigm of heterosexuality. If you want to travel and truly be yourself, safely keeping your finger on the pulse of which countries are welcoming is important. This varies around the globe.
