BLUE CRUISES & GULET CHARTERS
Blue cruise (cruising in Southwest Turkey) is one of the most relaxing vacations on earth. It is a unique form of cruising and yachting experience, an adventure that takes you to the magic of myths three millennia old, under the Mediterranean sun and in the turquoise blue of the crystal clear waters. It is also an opportunity to taste Turkish cuisine as well as fresh fish.
A yachting holiday is the ideal way to see the best of Turkey's Aegean and Mediterranean coastline. Many of the archaeological sites are accessible from the sea and the turquoise waters are a joy to swim in. Gulets are traditionally designed and locally built wooden motor sailing yachts . These yachts range in size from two to eight cabins and all cabins usually have wc/shower en-suite.
The cabins of the crew are completely separeted from those of the passengers. The gulets offer enough space to the passengers in the cabins, in the aisles and on the deck.
The crew consists of a captain, a cook and one or two deckhands who are all experienced in their work. Although the gulets are essentially motor yachts, it is possible to sail certain distances during a Blue Cruise.
You can shape your cruise itinerary as you wish before booking. Usually the daily duration of cruising is not longer than 3-4 hours, and the rest of the day can be spent in a gorgeous cove enjoying the sun and the sea. Sunbathing on the deck, swimming in clear waters, snorkeling, windsurfing, waterskiing or just fishing...
Or anchoring in a cove and trekking in the wild nature, visiting a nearby village and coming closer to local people and their traditions or visiting an ancient ruin. Here, in the midst of the idyll, you can feel the touch of nature and history.
True to its spirit, the ideal itinerary for a Blue Voyage must allow you to best penetrate the sense and soul of places where you anchor. So, instead of rushing from one spot to the next, a program has to strike a balance between the time spent at sea, the time passed in various bays, villages or ancient sites and the time required to enjoy them. For those on a private cruise, we recommend an itinerary visiting as many places as possible without making the cruise tiresome. Cabin charter tours are scheduled in accordance with this philosophy, as well.
Below you will find a map not to scale. The purpose is to show details, major places on one map.
It is possible to charter private yacht cruises that combine the Dodecanese (Rhodes, Cos, Patmos, etc.) and Cycladic (Mykonos, Santorini, Paros, Naxos, Amargos, etc.) Islands of Greece and The Turkish coasts. But there are harbour taxes and additional cruising fees for much longer distances associated with this type of cruise.
