For over three decades, we’ve been working to break down the barriers against social nudity and make clothing-optional vacationing a viable and acceptable option for all. We support the belief that sexuality is not a state of undress, but rather, a state of mind. Social nudity is not a sexual activity, and we strive to dispel the misconception that it is anything but natural and beautiful. We have made strides in the acceptance of nude vacationing and our wide range of cruise charters are a testament to our success.
Join us on the annual Big Nude Boat, or opt for one of our small ship luxury sailing yachts for a more intimate experience. Set sail with the Captains of Bare Cruising!
So, why Bare?
After owning a clothing-optional travel company for more than 25 years, I am still not sure I can answer the question with sufficient clarity, but here’s my attempt. It has been my experience that people who are able to leave their clothing behind in a social setting are also more able to check their egos at the door and be themselves, as they really are, rather than who they think others would like them to be.
Of course, what happens to my vacation-mates sans clothing also happens to me. I find myself withholding less of who I am as I hide less of my body. I begin to accept myself, imperfections and all. I can assure you, for a woman who tried for years to match the unrealistic standards of beauty in our society, this can be very liberating. Clothes-free vacationing leads to body acceptance. I can recall so many vacations that Tom and I took together before we discovered clothes-free vacationing. We would long to genuinely know some of our fellow vacationers, but never seemed to have the opportunity to push past the boundary of “Where are you from? What do you do? How about those Cowboys?”
WE STRONGLY BELIEVE THERE ARE NO STRANGERS ON A BARE NECESSITIES VACATION, ONLY FRIENDS YOU HAVE YET TO MEET.
