A long Mediterranean summer, full of sailing and ancient history.
Turkey is somewhat of an exotic destination in comparison to other cruising areas in the Mediterranean Sea and the mild climate allows to enjoy it from March throughout November.
Through beautiful coves and a luxurinat nature, the winds will lead you to discover mankind’s history with an unusual perspective from the sea, through a myriad of archaeological remains of ancient civilizations.
You’ll find wonderful bays, where mythological legends were set, with ancient tombs carved high into cliffs or sunken remnants of ancient Greek and Roman civilizations. Countless deserted coves awaiting your discovery.
The coast is dotted with historical sites of high interest and unique natural beauties, but the inland is not less rich and it might well deserve a visit.
The South-West part of the Turkish coast, from Bodrum to Antalya, is a well-developed tourist and sailing destination, serviced by international airports. Many charter fleets in Bodrum, Turgutreis, Marmaris, Göçek and Fethiye offer both sailboats and catamarans. But the queen of these seas is the “gulet” a traditional Turkish wooden boat, originally used for cargo and that has now been reinvented as a very comfortable type of cruising boat.
Gulets were so successful as charter boats in Turkey that they have soon spread also in other sailing destinations throughout the Mediterranean Sea. What charterers particularly appreciate are their roomy cabins and bathrooms, the wide outside areas with comfortable sun mattresses and sofas, not to mention the water sports equipment and other amenities that can make even more pleasant and enjoyable a cruise.
