Relax, reconnect to nature and yourself, and deepen your yoga practice in incredible surroundings with the gay and gay friendly community on the Captain Jack.
For several years, we have been organizing yoga cruises tailored for the LGBTQIA+ community and we can create the perfect environment to enjoy your gay yoga retreat.
We believe having a gay or gay-friendly stay can really enhance the experience, allowing to settle in a safe environment and help to build a community.
Our crew is not gay but know how to create this environment and make the attendees feel at ease and themselves.
Our gay holidays are a great way to make time and space for pause, introspection, new habits, a renewed sense of meaning and purpose and a feeling of belonging.
Our yoga cruises are the perfect combination of sun, sailing, fun and, of course, yoga ! Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra… we offer various styles of yoga classes with highly experienced teachers.
Our classes take place on the deck of the gulet, on nearby beaches, or even within the magical ambiance of nearby church ruins.
Along with a week including yoga classes twice a day, you will have plenty of time to laze on the deck, swim in the crystal clear waters, enjoy the most beautiful views of Turkey, admire Turquoise coasts with their small fishing villages and spectacular pine-forested mountains, (re)connect with nature, make new friends and visit plenty of picturesque bays.
Day after day, you will realize that each new location seems more breathtaking than the previous one.
Our yoga-themed cruise on the Turkish waters takes place on a 30 meter-long sailing boat, which is called a gulet. These beautiful hand-crafts boats were originally used for sponge diving and fishing, but over the years they’ve been re-imagined as floating hotels, staffed by crews who take care of everything from the sailing to cooking and cleaning.
The Captain Jack has seven guest en-suite cabins and three different cozy and quiet deck areas to stretch out on a sun lounger or bean bag.
Every day, you will drop anchor in a new spot and will use the stash of snorkel gear, fins and paddleboards to explore the blue waters of sheltered coves.
Our on-board chef will create a delicious Mediterranean menu of breakfast, lunch and dinner, catering for all dietary requirements.
Everything is planned so that you can have a very pleasant moment and we hope that this yoga cruise remains unforgettable.
