For 22 years now- coincidentally, how old most guys guess I am- Cruisey T has been hosting THE on-water event of Vancouver Pride with their epic 4 hour tours of the local inlets and sounds (geographical terms… don’t ask me what they mean). This year is no exception and full steam ahead the men behind the boats are satisfying all your nautical needs by hosting THREE different cruises: two on Sunday, the day of pride itself and a third on our holiday Monday for those of you that didn’t get enough fun the day before. My best friend- and site co-owner, and often barely clothed partner in crime- Patrick, will be joining me on the earliest of the three cruises (the Pride Party Cruise) as we drown ourselves in vodka on the high seas. Christ, we sound classy, don’t we?

Just what is Cruisey T? Well, it’s a T-Dance on a boat. What’s a T-Dance? First, are you on the right site because I shouldn’t have to explain this unless you just moved here from wherever they do the Iditarod or you just turned 19. Second, it’s basically an afternoon gathering of gay men to enjoy a social where with music, liquor and a casual space where you can sit and chat or dance your ass off. Third, it’s on a boat, where, well, everything’s just better on a boat y’all! The cruise tours the impossible-to-beat scenic views of West Vancouver coastal life and offers a packed ship of hunky men in amazing moods. While Vancouver is often called out for its sketchy to predict weather, YVR Pride falls smack in the middle of summer and is as close to a guarantee for sun as you can get- so make sure to take it all in dancing and surfing the waterways!
