Fethiye to Kekova area lies on Turkey’s Aegean coastline offering some of the Mediterranean’s most alluring scenery for cruising. Known as the turquoise coast, the shoreline is mountainous, forested and named after the aquamarine colours of the sea. There are many routes you can choose for your gulet holiday, check our routes page to find out more. By choosing to hire a wooden yacht charter for yourself and your friends and family you get full control of the itinerary including the destinations and activities, all without a hefty price tag.
Gulet cruising is very different to a package beach holiday. It’s a great way to explore the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, being on a boat you are constantly moving to new locations, secluded bays, archaeological sites, picturesque landscapes all in crystal clear waters. There is no planning to be done, once you have chosen your cruise route all you need to do is sit onboard, relax and watch the view change as you move to your next stop. At every bay there is time for swimming and exploring the crystal clear waters filled with marine life and at times, partially sunken archaeological ruins.
Onboard everything is done for you by the crew, waking up in the morning coffees and teas will be served with a traditional Turkish breakfast, fresh fruits, vegetables, breads, cheeses, eggs. You can sit and enjoy a relaxing breakfast all served for you on deck and after you’re all finished eating, everything is cleared away, cleaned and completed by the crew. Yes, even Mum gets a break on this holiday! You will be served three delicious fresh meals a day, all prepared fresh every day and served for guests, giving you a break from normal chores in everyday life.
Gulet cruising removes all the stress of getting up and planning a day trip, what to take and what to eat. Once you are onboard you have everything you need, sunshine, beautiful scenery, swimming spots and all meals prepared for you. Gulet cruising gives you time back, time to spend with your friends and families, having conversations, playing games and sharing new experiences with your loved ones. Watch your children become more and more water confident during the week, and a lot of the trip is in marine reserves so the waters are excellent for snorkeling and free diving if you have the experience.
After a week onboard you will be relaxed, refreshed and grateful for the time onboard with your friends and family. Leaving with sun kissed looks, a camera full of gorgeous photos, knowledge on Turkish culture and a headful of beautiful memories. Already planning next year’s trip onboard.
