Turkey gulet cruises are amongst the most popular beach vacations in the Mediterranean. These wooden yachts are quiet and are ideal for close to shore and shallow water excursions. The calm waters of the Turkish coast are ideal for a romantic sailing holiday. Your agenda? Rest and relaxation as you quietly venture into quiet harbours. Go swimming by jumping right off your very own yacht charter! Enjoy fabulous meals prepared fresh for you. At the end of the day, as you find your way to bed, let the gentle waves lull you to sleep. The end to a perfect day!
Gulet cruising is ideal for individuals, friends and families who would like a more intimate method of exploring the unspoiled coastline of Turkey with its wonderful beaches. These charters offer individuals the flexibility to explore this wonderful coast at their liking.
The original, so called "Blue cruise", was along the Carian coast. Together with Fethiye, Bodrum and Marmaris are indeed the premium yacht charter ports in Turkey which cater to the thousands of tourists.
The best time to take this very memorable trip would be either June or September. These months are warm enough to tan well and they can miss the major tourist months of July and August giving you a little more privacy.
For sun worshipers the months of July and August will definitely keep you plenty warm (don't forget your sun screen!).
The latter part of May and the beginning of October are great if you are looking to get more privacy in the wonderful coves and beaches of Turkey!
Our personal Turkey sailing vacation started in the earlier part of June. We stayed overnight at the Ece Saray Marina Resort where we spent a good night's rest after a seven day archeological tour of Turkey. This waterfront hotel is located in the resort town of Fethiye and I have to say that I did not really want to leave this beautiful town for the view! Breakfast on the deck overlooking the marina was indeed a most memorable morning!
As always, when visiting foreign countries, we recommend the use of a reputable tour guide or travel agent.
