Lisa Malachowsky, entrepreneur and veteran of the motorcycle and scuba industries, announces the opening of her new travel agency, Dive N Ride Adventures, LLC. This unique travel company will provide tours for LGBTQ+ travelers and their allies who scuba dive, ride motorcycles, or enjoy both activities.
Malachowsky says, “With COVID-19 under better control, what better time than now to fill a gap in the travel industry by providing sustainable, authentic, and community outreach-focused tours for our clients. I anticipate providing four personally escorted tours each year and providing signature travel consulting using my deep knowledge of world travel while being an LGBTQ+ person. I want my clients to feel welcomed, indulged, and deeply connected to the destinations we visit.”
In 2022, Dive N Ride will partner with Beach’s Motorcycle Adventures for a motorcycle tour in Europe and Rocio Del Mar for a live-aboard scuba vacation in the Sea of Cortez. As the world gets back to normal, it is anticipated that a full calendar will commence in 2023 with four tours, of which at least one will be a destination where both motorcycling and scuba diving will be available. The other tours will be offered with either motorcycling or scuba diving separately.
Gretchen Beach of Beach’s Motorcycle Adventures says, “We are thrilled to partner with Dive N Ride Adventures and to spread the word that we are an LGBTQ+ friendly company. We provide motorcycling adventures without the scary bits. All the details are handled: great lodging, your luggage, a spare bike, someone who knows how to read the foreign menus, a couple of shade-tree mechanics, and someone who’s got your back all trip long. With Lisa as a partner, we will bring our LGTBQ+ clients the ability to be themselves wherever and whenever they travel with us!”
Dora Sandoval, the owner of Rocio Del Mar, states, “We have always opened our arms to the LGBTQ+ scuba diver and are excited to be working with Lisa and Dive N Ride Adventures. Through our partnership, we look forward to bringing more scuba divers to the amazing waters of Mexico to experience the incredible life under the surface and the warm, Mexican hospitality of our crew.”
