EVERYTHING TO SEA

Guys, naked, sailing on a traditional wooden vessel through the Flores Sea. Free, and honest, and fun. True camaraderie. A once-in-a-lifetime experience, this is. A dream that can be fulfilled. Or maybe just something that’ll make great memories…

NOW we’re talking.

So – let’s talk about talking. We’re not gonna talk down to you, to sell you this trip. No patronizing, no know-it-all attitude. And we’re not gonna talk in a smarmy manner, to overwhelm you with our words. We’re not going to promise you the moon, when all we can guarantee are the stars (several thousand of them, in a sky without light pollution).

All we’re saying is… we’re not gonna do this, or that, or the other, to push this on you. Because we know we’ve got a kickass product that sells itself. To make a decision, you just need the basics – like details about the ship, passenger spaces, meal logistics, itineraries, and costs. Maybe check out what others are saying about us – in the media or from past travelers. And then, you just need to make up your mind.

The future is naked.

THE AMBIENCE

The mood’s relaxed.  Some guys are in shorts or sarongs or speedos; some are nude. And the crew’s adept but mellow, in an island-fashion typical in this part of the world – replete with an overlay of Southeast Asian politeness (you’re 40 minutes away from Bali).  This isn’t just the way to travel. This is the way to be.  Read More

THE VOYAGE

Amongst literally thousands of islands – Indonesia’s archipelago boasts nearly 17,000 pieces of land surrounded by water – many are uninhabited, and many are small. Glancing around, you can see craggy rocks, sensuous hills, and mountains – all surrounded by a mix of seas. The sparkling sun reflects off them, and wildlife appears at the strangest times (think flying fish, flying foxes, and bright blue kingfishers – flying fast from the trees). As striking as it is wild, the land and the sea and the air and the light all combine to create a spectacular landscape. And the all-male environment turns it into a man’s landscape. You’re in a place where a man can escape.

And there’s many ways to do so.

THE SHIP

We sail on a “Pinisi” boat – a large wooden sailing ship, made completely without nails, in the traditional Bugis style.  Pinisi have been made this way for at least 1,500 years, by craftsmen on the southern part of the Indonesian island of Sulawesi.  In 2017, UNESCO designated these ships as an art of “Intangible Cultural Heritage.” They last forever, because they’re made so well.  Neglected, they suffer, like any sailing vessel. But take care of one, and it’s a gem… Read More

THE CREW

The crew on our Pinisi are ideal. They are friendly, low-key, accepting, and most important, good at what they do. We’ve got a guide, a captain, a cook, a shipkeeper, and a first mate. All five of them go with us on each excursion. Friendly and open-minded, three of them are from the island of Flores, and two of them come from Sumbawa – a neighboring island. These guys work well together as one team, and each one is skilled at taking over the jobs of others. It’s nothing short of astounding to see the efficiency amongst this group of men.  Read More

Sailing amongst islands that change at any given point of the year, you’ll see nature in progress. From April and May and June, the islands are a lush green.  July through September see a more dry and barren – yet equally stunning – savannah-covered vista, contrasting nicely with the water.  Later in October the green returns in striking patches, and from then until March, nature works hard creating new life again.  Meanwhile, with year-round temperatures in the 80s, and turquoise-blue water that never feels cold, you’re in a perfect climate to shed your clothes.

OUR STORY

(a seven minute read)

Hi, my name is Dave.  You might know me as The Legendary Dave:  I’ve worked for over a decade as an international escort -serving any adult regardless of their gender, size, shape, ethnicity, or orientation – in Europe, Asia, North, South, and Central America, and Africa.

The idea hit me one day, during a trip to Raja Ampat – located in the northwest part of New Guinea.  I was heading there with five of my friends.  We were on a huge passenger ship, moving through the Banda Sea, and I thought – as I had so many times before – how breathtakingly beautiful the seascapes were.  I’d taken these large ships several times over my years in Indonesia, and each time I was struck by the intensity of what I saw.  But this time, something in my brain went somewhere else.  How great it would be, I thought, to be doing this on a Pinisi boat, naked!  It would be the perfect experience.   Read More
