Set sail with family or friends on board a traditional Turkish Gulet. Allow your skipper to take the wheel while you take a dip in the crystal-clear waters, explore hidden coves along the Aegean coast or simply relax on deck with a sundowner. From Bodrum, you can enjoy a choice of seven-day cruises. These vary from heading to the yachting mecca of Gocek or sailing around the beautiful Greek islands.
A cruise to Gocek will take you to the hidden treasures along the Datca peninsula before sailing to Serce, an amazing land-locked harbour. Experienced the thrill of entering through a narrow pen and seeing the beautiful fjord-like bay for the first time. As you cruise along the shore you can hop aboard a launch to visit the ancient city of Caunos - a renowned breeding ground for turtle. Before arriving in Gocek, dive from your gulet and float in the glittering waters of a bay known as Cleopatra’s Bath.
For those wishing to sail further afield, why not go island hopping around Greece? As you leave Turkish waters you’ll arrive at the popular island of Kos. It may be hard to leave the golden beaches and taverna’s, but you’ll soon be weighing anchor off secluded beaches on the less-populated islands from Pserimos to Marathi. Back on deck, enjoy dinner served by your private chef and sit back to admire the ever-changing seascape. No two days will ever be the same on a gulet cruise.
Additional notes about the cruise
All gulets come with full crew which include; skipper, deckhands and a chef. Rental is generally Saturday to Saturday. Various boat options are available pending on the number of people in your party. A few of our preferred options are:
Doluce Mare – 6 cabins/12 people based in Bodrum
Estrella De Mar – 5 cabins/10 people based in Bodrum
Uni Bene – 5 cabins/12 people based in Bodrum
Prenses Bugce – 6 cabins/12 people based in Marmais
Based on a gulet with 5 cabins a starting price would be £30,000 for 7 nights including all meals. Pre and post hotel nights, transfers and excursions can of course be added. Please speak to your travel consultant for a tailor-made cruise holiday to suit your requirements.
