Great boat saw so many pretty places the food was excellent and plentiful. However, I could feel the captains reluctance to follow the rout given and his comments were sometimes unkind about us asking to use the tender to go ashore, he said it’s not a taxi and I asked for help to put the side safes up as I couldn’t do it alone he said “ I do it” his attitude wasn’t the best sadly

Finding the best yacht for your group in Turkey is just the first step. The next decision is where you will cruise and what you will do there. We will help customize your route according to your group configuration and preferences. For example, exploring Bodrum Town either with small children, or as a group of active seniors, demands a completely different approach to itinerary planning.

Why is the list of “award winning / highly recommended yachts” so useful for me.

  • It will provide you with a clear idea of the best available option for your yacht charter
  • It will help you better understand and determine your preferences and expectations
  • It will help us to tailor a search of the most appropriate yachts for you, and negotiate the best price with the yacht owner/s

There are thousands of yachts for charter, and selecting the one that best suits your group’s preferences, budget and taste is challenging, especially if you are a first-time charterer. 

Our hand-picked, “award-winning”, highly recommended yachts are the best in class. The list will give you a clear understanding of what is possible, and the costs, without the need to cross-reference against the hundreds of other yachts. The list provides a refined, personalised selection of up to 10 vessels, across different price ranges, so you can make an informed decision.

It will highlight the best “value for money” yachts; and subject to availability on your chosen dates at the destination you desire, everything will come together for a memorable experience at sea.

This is a process of elimination which will deliver the most appropriate yacht for your holiday.

How do I ensure the most suitable final selection? 

It is crucial that we, at Goolets, gain a thorough understanding of your preferences and expectations from the beginning, so that we can undertake a comprehensive, tailored search. Please consider the following:

  • Do you prefer modern or classic yachts? 
  • Do you prioritize size of the yacht or the age of the yacht? 
  • What do you expect from your crew? Highly attentive at all times, or more in the background?
  • Would you prefer a younger crew, full of energy and sociable; or less so?
  • Do you need a faster yacht to explore more places and cover more ground, or is this not so important?
  • Do you prefer larger cabins and a spacious salon/living area, or you are more of an outdoor person?
  • Do you prefer a more luxurious yacht, or to allocate more of your budget to food/beverages and activities (water sports/land excursions/tours/bike rental, etc)?

Once we have noted your preferences, we will compile a shortlist of possibilities comprising 5 to 10 yachts of varying specifications (size, interior style, type of crew, etc); following which, we will narrow this down to 2 or 3 options, all of which would make excellent choices. 

This process can be repeated with multiple permutations in order to arrive at the most suitable selection.

This process - refined over the past 15 years - delivers successful charters and satisfied customers.

What is the cost of a yacht charter? 

We specialize in crewed vessels, where prices can range anywhere from € 5,000 per week up to more than € 1 million per week. Most of our charters fall into three price levels: 

  • From € 10,000 to € 30,000 per week
: This price range has the largest variety of yachts, and includes smaller vessels - motor and sail, gulets, classic yachts, and catamarans.  When booking, it is important to ensure proper maintenance inspections have been carried out, and the crews are professionally trained, speak fluent English, and can provide excellent service.  Around 30% of our customers book vessels in this range. 
  • From € 30,000 to € 100,000 per week:
 This price level is becoming more popular every season. It includes a wide range of yachts, traditional and modern. These are high specification vessels offering every imaginable comfort. Around 50% of our clients book yachts in this price range. 
  • From € 100,000 per week
: This price level includes ultra-luxury vessels such as megayachts. These are the most highly sought-after charter yachts in the world, with a wide range of high-end water “toys” onboard - including jet skis, a heli-pad, and even a submarine. These charters are very bespoke and every detail is managed to cater for exacting requirements.  A small percentage of our clients book these superyachts. 

Is the cost of a personal charter manager included?

Yes, Goolets’ services are included in the base charter rate. 

Booking your holiday with us includes:

  • A dedicated, personal yacht expert : one of our team will be assigned to you and will oversee every detail of your charter. 
  • A personal concierge /customer support person : when you book a yacht with us, you will also be assigned a destination expert who can advise on routes, activities, and local cuisine.  She/he will help design your charter to your specifications to maximise your cruise.
  • A destination manager : a person from within our team responsible for the time you spend ashore at each local destination / stop-off, ensuring a seamless and positive experience. 
  • All these costs are incorporated into the base charter fee.  

How do you help me plan the itinerary?

For each destination, we provide all the most popular itineraries / routes that are being followed.

First step is to go through the itinerary and determine your starting point. This usually covers check-in and check-out locations, and some of the highlights (islands, towns, nature parks, bays, locations), that you would prefer to visit.

Second, the tailor-made route is refined to maximise each port of call. You can elect to stay longer in some places and omit others.

Third, we customize your itinerary according to your group structure and preferences. If you have small children or teenagers, or if you are an active group of older people travelling without children, or if you are in your 30s travelling with friends who like to party, you can all follow the same route. You can all arrive at the same island, for example, yet experience it in a completely different way:

  • Families with young children: we will find the best and safest sandy beaches where you can swim and relax 
  • Teenagers might enjoy activities such as water sports
  • Older groups may with to visit historic places, enjoy a leisurely lunch at a local restaurant, or visit a wine cellar
  • Those who like to party might wish to sleep during the day and stay up til the wee hours.

How do you help me plan the activities for the route/itinerary I select? 

When we have the basis for the itinerary and your group structure (age, wishes, expectations) we construct your wishlist and discuss it with the Captain. 

We have successfully organised thousands of charter cruises for every conceivable group size so we have a thorough understanding of what is required to make your trip a success.

We communicate with the yacht’s crew and create a day by day itinerary.

Final payments are made 4 weeks prior to departure, and all relevant travel documents and destination advice are issued.  The crew is briefed on any last minute requests. 

At check-in state, our destination experts will arrange everything on the ground to ensure an easy embarkation.

A Guide to Gulet Sailing Holidays in Turkey

I am incredibly grateful for countless travel memories that I can look back on with fondness but one of my favourite is gulet cruising in Turkey. It was a four night, five-day sailing holiday along the Mediterranean coast from Fethiye to Olympus. Choosing to partly detox from an Internet addiction, and relax at the same time, the experience was ten times better than any spa retreat offers.

However, speaking to friends after the event, it seemed that the biggest misconception people have about gulet sailing holidays in Turkey, is that you’ll spend all day, every day on the boat being bored, but it is about much more than that. Firstly, if you are a novice to gulet cruising, it helps to understand the unique background, concept and what makes them different from others sailing vessels.

Gulet sailing

What is a Gulet in Turkey?

When you book gulet sailing holidays in Turkey, you are venturing into an age-old nautical tradition. Gulets are traditional, handcrafted wooden boats with two or three masts. Although other countries such as Italy, Montenegro, and Croatia, use gulets, Turkey has an esteemed and long-established reputation for making gulet boats, especially in Bodrum and Bozburun, two coastal hubs on the west and southwest coast.

Their original use was for sponge diving and fishing, but over the years, the concept has evolved to become overnight floating hotels. Esteemed professionals expertly handcraft each gulet boat with unique design and décor. You can find more information about gulet boats here .

eating on a gulet boat

Are Gulets Seaworthy?

Yes, these boats are extremely hardy, and every year during winter, the owners dock into the shipyards for maintenance and upkeep. Gulets are a specialised vessel, and different from a yacht. The latest materials and techniques are used in yacht construction. Hence the industry is always evolving because the primary purpose is sailing long distances, even around the world. Whereas short, coastal cruising is what gulet boats are designed for.

Gulet Cruising in Turkey

What are Blue Cruises in a Gulet Boat?

Gulet sailing holidays in Turkey focus on the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts, which make up the Turkish Riviera. Within this long stretch of coastline, captains follow defined Blue Cruise routes, with unique attractions and things to do. The Fethiye to Olympus way is one of the most popular, but passengers can also sail to the Greek Islands and back, as another alternative.

Budget travellers can book cabin charter on set Blue Cruise routes of which there are many, or large groups and families can book their private gulet sailing holiday and along with the captain, tailor-make a particular blue cruise route. Are you wandering if blue cruises are appropriate for you or not? Here is what a gulet expert says:

Inside a gulet boat

What is it Like Staying on a Gulet Boat?

Most gulet boats range in size from 20 to 30 meters, and each has between 5 to 8 cabins. Within these cabins are double or single beds, an en-suite bathroom and sometimes wardrobes. Most gulets have air conditioning, although the humidity is less at sea than at land, so they are generally not needed, especially when sailing.

Eat your meals on deck, and there is a full crew to help you including the captain, deckhands, and cook. Gulet boats can cruise with wind force or turn on the engine for a faster experience. As with any travel concept, a gulet can be budget and basic or luxurious, in which case, the cabins are larger with exquisite furniture and décor. The sunbathing area is at the front of the boat and inside is a separate seating/bar area.

Gulet Sailing Holidays in Turkey

Places in Turkey to Book Gulet Sailing Holidays

Life on the Turkish Riviera focuses on seaside living, but some places have esteemed reputations for their excellence in the gulet sailing industry. Daily many gulet boats sail out of the harbours in these regions to take passengers on a 3 to 8-day cruise. They include….

Bodrum: The town, a favoured holiday destination for British people as well as Turks, has spearheaded Turkey’s tourism drive ever since the 1980s. As well as selling budget holidays, it also offers luxurious experiences leading it to become a favourite destination for rich and wealthy celebrities.

Marmaris: Another destination particularly favoured by the Brits, the harbour and marina area is a hive of everything nautical. Within the town itself, there is not much to do the area, however, is exceptionally scenic, explaining why it is a major sailing hub.

Fethiye: Round the world backpackers completing a tour of Turkey, book up for budget cabin charter Blue cruise routes to Olympus from Fethiye, although the town also offers luxury sailing at a higher cost.

Things to Do on Gulet Sailing Holidays in Turkey

Fethiye Turkey

As mentioned before, although the term “sailing holidays” imply, it is all about being at sea, gulet cruising is about a lot more than that, namely the diversity of things to do.

1: Explore the small coastal towns

The Turkish Riviera has many small, coastal towns, each with their characteristics. Gulets dock in either overnight or for the day, giving you time to wander and explore. Kas on the Mediterranean coast is a perfect example because despite embracing modern living, it has kept its authentic atmosphere, making it one of the quaintest places in Turkey.

2: Get to places only accessible by boat

Many uninhabited islands surround Turkey, and some of them such as Gemiler just outside Fethiye are worth exploring. Ruined Christian churches and a fantastic view make it a preferred place at night for boats to drop anchor. Kekova sunken ruins is another area ideally explored by boat for the best view.

3: Sleep on deck

During my blue cruise, I never slept in my cabin. Instead preferring the deck at the front of the boat, I thoroughly enjoyed going to sleep under the stars. There is something peaceful about just listening to the sounds of nature as you drop off and as much as my cabin was comfortable and quiet, I choose to sleep on deck every time.

4: See Caretta Caretta turtles

It is a guaranteed certainty you will see the endangered Caretta turtles if you cruise the Mediterranean coast but in particular, the Simena area. One morning, a small group came swimming around the boat for food and seeing their size, I realised their stamina was strong despite their docile appearance.

5: Gorgeous sunsets

Watching a Turkish sunset dip over the horizon is a favourite evening activity of mine because I am not talking about average sunsets here. The Mediterranean and Aegean coasts, boast of vibrant orange sunsets that are big attractions for tourists, who cannot resist getting their camera out to snap the view.

6: Catch your dinner

Of course, if you do not like fish or seafood, the cook will whip up many alternative dishes, but for fish lovers, part of the thrill is catching your dinner and BBQing it. From sea to plate within 20 minutes. You cannot get any fresher than that!

7: Snorkelling and diving

Most gulet boats have snorkelling equipment on board, which you are welcome to use when they stop for swimming breaks. Alternatively, Turkey is a scuba diving paradise with many underwater wrecks and various sea life. If you spend half a day in any scuba diving town, your boat captain can pre-book lessons for you, whether you are a novice or experienced.

8: Ice-cream deliveries!

In many spots around the coastline where boats dock in for swimming or overnight breaks, floating ice-cream boats offer the perfect refreshment. Pulling alongside the gulet and coming on board with many choices, it is a quirky concept of waiter service.

9: Jet-skis and parasailing

Likewise, anywhere boats gather, jet skis are for hire and passengers can parasail behind a speed boat. Jet skiing attracts adrenaline junkies while paragliding is an alternative bird’s eye view of the gorgeous landscape.

10: Visit historical ruins of ancient civilizations

Many Blue Cruise routes on the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts, stop by coastal historical ruins of which Turkey has hundreds. The Med coast was home to the Lycians, who left behind glorious cities such as Patara and Olympus, set in an overgrown forest. Their ancient cities have also sparked an official trekking route, one of the longest in the world taking as much as three months to complete.

11: See the Greek Dodecanese Islands

Although, the most popular routes of gulet sailing holidays in Turkey focus on the Turkish Riviera, mix your holiday with Greek destinations of which, the Dodecanese islands are perfect. 150 of them sit in the south Aegean Sea, just a short distance from Turkey. The two most famous are Kos, and Rhodes, however smaller islands like Simi, are ideal for getting off the beaten track.

Further Reading: If the history of gulet cruising interests you, read about the Fisherman of Halicarnassus , Cevat Sakir Kabaagacli. As well as unintentionally, setting in place the trend for coastal cruising, he made Bodrum, a famous destination of the Turkish Riviera.

A gulet is a classic wooden, motorized, and sailing boat that is perfect for long sea voyages and close-to-land cruises.

Traditional Turkish gulets are made-to-order boats that skilled artisans construct from wood. Because they provide a very comfortable cruising experience, gulets, often referred to as motor sailboats, are perfect for coastal excursions and lengthy sea cruises.

We are aware that the first gulet construction began in Turkey’s Bodrum region. However, production is also taking place in Bozburun, Marmaris, Fethiye, and Istanbul as a result of the expanding market and demand.

Types of Gulets

Gulet: The gulet is the most well-known traditional yacht design for Blue Cruise. The dining table and seating area are located at the back of the gulets.

There is typically a sofa and enough sun pillows out front for everyone. The entrance to the cabins is through this hall, which features a dining table according to the size of the gulet and an interior hall.

The yacht’s round stern causes the guest quarters to be in the front, while the aft side is typically used as the technical area. The ability to sail is marginally superior to that of Aynakic gulets.

The AFT parts of Aynakic gulets are not round, as they are in gulets, but rather are in a structure with raised corners, which is a key characteristic that sets them apart from ordinary gulets.

They typically use this space for the suite room, or what we would refer to as the “master cabin.” All other details are the same as for gulets, with the exception of this characteristic.

Tirhandil is the oldest local wooden boat type with a pointed stern and the best-suited wooden yacht for sailing. Today, the equipment has changed from sloop to lifeboat and from sail to sail; the majority of them are three-corner sails.

They do not construct them on particularly lengthy decks, often between 15 and 25 meters, like other kinds. The same standards apply to their cabins. If you like sailing, this is the best option.

Accommodation on Gulets

Traditional Turkish gulets have evolved in appearance over time. A modern gulet today resembles a high-end floating hotel and can be anywhere between 15 and 55 meters (50 and 180 feet) in length. Gulet length and passenger capacity are not inversely related.

A 20-meter gulet, for instance, might contain three guest cabins or six. The cabins must be smaller in order to accommodate additional cabins of the same size. But in general, taller gulets make up vessels with six or more multi-cabs.

Every cabin on gulets of different shapes and sizes was created with the needs of the passenger in mind, including a bed, wardrobe, separate shower, and toilet.

However, extra comfort amenities like sofa sets, dressers, work desks, and jacuzzis are also available, depending on the size of the rooms and the level of luxury of the boat. There are separate cabins for personnel in the guest cabins.

Gulet Passenger Safety

On gulets, the welfare of the passengers comes first. As a result, each gulet contains numerous fuel and clean water tanks. Additionally, it features a complete set of navigation and safety equipment, including life jackets, fire extinguishers, GSM phones, and VHF radios.

All of these safety precautions and modern technologies prevent any potential emergency and enhance your seaside vacation.

Types of Gulet Charters

Private yacht charter: When you charter a gulet, the entire vessel—along with its crew—is yours for the duration of the rental period. Within the parameters outlined in your rental agreement, you are free to take any route during the rental term.

And you are not restricted to any set timetable; you can plan your vacation however you like. You can purchase our ready-made menu packages and avoid sticking to a typically restricted menu, just as you can shop for your rations.

Renting a private gulet is the perfect choice if you want to spend a luxurious vacation at sea with your family or enjoy the sea and entertainment with close friends.

For a trip you won’t forget and wish to repeat, choose from traditional, classic, luxury, or ultra-luxury yacht charter options to suit your needs and experience.

Cabin rentals : On a shared tour, one or more cabins may be rented. The schedule for the route, lunch times, and meal components remain the same.

The purpose of in-cabin trips, which they typically arrange on classic gulets, is to experience the spirit and joy of the Blue Cruise rather than taking a vacation on a luxury yacht. Let’s say you can’t organize enough groups to rent a private gulet or you go over your budget.

Then, a cabin rental could provide you with a relaxing blue-tour vacation. Renting a cabin will help you make the most of your vacation by allowing you to cruise in style, widen your circle of friends, and meet new acquaintances on the boat.


Where else can you enjoy the peace and quiet of the Blue Sea, which has everything you need to make up for the weariness of the whole year? In the Eastern Mediterranean and Aegean, where there are “Blue Weeks” that never end and warm seas, you can have a great vacation. has helped people for a long time. Many of our guests come back every year to see more of the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas. Maybe you’d like to come back and try something new. Nature gives you a great temperature, a calm sea, a lot of history and culture, and delicious food.

During the day, you can walk between boats along the coast and stop in different bays. At night, you can stay in a very quiet bay where no one else is. You can drink something cold and watch the sun go down. Or, if you want, you can tie up your boat in a busy port and enjoy the holiday mood of the people there.

Places like the blue coast of Turkey, the Greek islands, and the eastern shores of the Adriatic, Croatia, and Montenegro are also options.

For tourists looking for the sun, Turkey is very famous. Regular regional flights to international airports in southwest Turkey have made this place very easy to get to. A lot of people also visit places like Bodrum, Marmaris, Fethiye, Gocek, and Antalya during the long summer months. Each of these places is an area that can be part of the boat rental program.

Local tour operators, especially those from other parts of Europe, have a strong interest in the Greek islands in the Aegean Sea. The great thing about a gulet rental vacation is that you can visit some of these islands. Rhodes, Symi, and Kos all have ports that are close to the Turkish shore. These are great islands for people who want to see places in both areas. Between the Greek islands in the west and the many Greek islands in the north, you can mix and match a lot of different options.

Let’s say you have to choose between two routes that are very different. In that case, you can get more information about each area by getting in touch with us.

Turkish Coastline Delights

With a Gulet cruise, you can indulge in a world of natural beauty, rich history, and vibrant culture, all while enjoying the comforts of a luxury yacht.

Different Types of Gulet Boats

Gulet boats come in many sizes and styles, from traditional wooden yachts to modern luxury boats. Each gulet gives you a unique experience that fits your needs, whether you want to relax in a quiet bay, learn about the area’s history, or do water sports.

The Gulet Boat Experience

On a gulet boat, the atmosphere is more intimate and laid-back than on a big cruise ship. With fewer people on board, you’ll be able to get to know your fellow passengers and crew members better.

Also, gulets can get into smaller bays and coves, making the experience more private and off the beaten path.

Gulet boats vs. other cruises.

What makes Gulet boats different from other cruises is that they offer a personal touch and a real experience. While larger cruise ships may offer more amenities, they often lack the intimacy and charm of a gulet boat.

Sometimes looks can be deceiving and that phrase can also apply to a gulet yacht because sometimes they can appear so similar but yet have a huge price difference between them. There are 3 categories of gulets namely; Standard, Deluxe, and Luxury. Below are some of the things that help distinguish the price of a gulet:


1.) Crew on gulet

The crew on board a gulet can define your trip. An excellent crew on board can make your cruise much more enjoyable. A more experienced and knowledgeable captain knows how to sail and all the best places to stop at and this can absolutely make your cruising experience fantastic.

Luxury gulet cruises

2.) Maintenance of the gulet

Maintenance, as well as the age of the gulet, will influence the final price of gulet charter. A gulet in fine and properly maintained condition will surely command a higher charter price than a gulet in average condition.

3.) Services & equipment

The more services and amenities are available on a gulet, the more expensive it will become. For example, few gulets that offer water boarding equipment, Jacuzzi, fully furnished bar, posibility of having a babysitter on board etc. will generally attract a hefty price tag.




Luxury sailing yacht Lady Gita with astounding 49,30 m in length provides lots of space for 12 guests that she can accommodate in 6 cabins. The deck features sun mattresses and lounge area, a jacuzzi from where you can enjoy in the beautiful surroundings while the experienced and professional crew will ensure you with the best cruise experience.


Aurum Sky combines high-end elegance, sleek lines and modern decor both inside and on the deck. “Aurum Sky” is owned by the same family who owns gulet “Aurum” that was always booked months in advance. This shows the quality of service they provide onboard that our experts can equally confirm.

DOLCE MARE Aerial view

Gulet Dolce Mare from Turkey️ won the best service award. The crew will truly go an extra mile for all of its clients to provide them with everything they wished for and more! Luxury gulet also provides excellent accommodation for a comfortable cruise with a lot of admirable features and watersports.

B) Preparations Before You Cruise

There is certainly no dress code or attire on a gulet. You are free to come in whatever you feel comfortable in, a jacket, shorts, a t-shirt, and jeans will work fine. Also, Gulet cabins are not as large as hotels room so it is always best to be reasonable when it comes to packing. Bring only the important things, no need for overpacking.

Here a few things that you must bring with on your gulet cruise

Swimming suit

A couple of casual shirt and pants

A novel or book that you enjoy reading

Your everyday personal hygiene products

This is basically a rundown of what you would need. No suit and ties are needed for this cruise.

C) During The Blue Cruise

It’s almost impossible to get bored on a gulet cruise since possibilities are endless and there are so many gulets to choose from. Actually, there are more than 300 gulets to pick from , more than 50 different itineraries and more than 30 activities you could engage in. Only poor planning and a bad gulet choice can come close to ruining your gulet experience. But our gulet experts will make sure that this does not happy.

If you are going to be cruising as a family or group, decide on the things you want to do on the cruise beforehand. We can help you plan and organize everything.  You can choose to swim, sunbathe, go scuba diving go on guided tours or even visit landmarks and historic sites. The choice is yours!

D) Services on Board

Every gulet comes with crew members. However, the number of crew members will be decided by the size of the gulet. The quality of crew on board is equally important as the gulet you choose. You are better off with a competent professional crew in a standard gulet than a bad crew in a luxury gulet.

For smaller gulets , there will be lesser crew members on board and vice versa. Below you’ll find a list of crew members and their duties on board a gulet.

CAPTAIN : every ship needs a captain and so does every gulet. The captain has the final say about the route of the gulet and he coordinates sailing and navigation. The captain is the best person to show you the most amazing places on your cruise.


CHEF: after the captain comes your able chef. The chef is responsible for all the meals  prepared and shared on board. He has the power to either make or mar your cruise. So hope for a great chef on board your cruise.

WAITER: a waiter will work alongside the chef to ensure that meals are served properly and he can also help with the dishes and other small kitchen tasks.

SAILOR:  a sailor is like an understudy to the captain. The sailor takes care of all the navigation and sailing responsibilities. He ensures that everything related to sailing is in great condition.

HOSTESS: hostess is common only on luxury gulets. They are responsible for cleaning your cabins, serving you drinks and snacks and managing the salon. Sometimes they can help out with your kids too.

Sailing in Turkey: A Guide to a Gulet Cruise Along the Turquoise Coast

Sailing in Turkey along it’s Turquoise Coast is a magical way to spend a holiday in this beautiful country.

Stretching from the bustling port of Fethiye, to the resort town of Antalya, this coastline has been dubbed the Turquoise Coast for its twinkly blue warm seas. Backed by mountain ranges for almost its entire length, their slopes drop precipitously down to quaint fishing villages and the coastal highway which twists and turns with the coast. Lush pine forest, sandy beaches and sheer cliffs add drama, and the hundreds of tiny secluded coves and bays are tucked away, only accessible by water.

The most popular way to explore the Turquoise coast is by sailing, and the traditional wooden gulet cruise boat is a fantastic and authentic way to do this.

If you’re looking to spend long, lazy days onboard a typical Turkish boat, with glorious weather to boot, then a sailing trip in Turkey is for you. I recently spent three nights on board a gulet, sailing from Fethiye to Olympus, near Antalya with Alaturka Cruises enjoying a sailing trip along the Turquoise coast, on the route often referred to as the ‘blue cruise’. I tucked into delicious fresh seafood, explored ancient ruins, enjoyed drinks in lively fishing ports and jumped into the warm, calm seas for three days, and it was just brilliant. So here’s my guide to the Turquoise Coast, including how to choose a company to sail in Turkey with and what to do in each port of call. Enjoy reading and have fun planning your own sailing trip to Turkey!

Sailing in Turkey – Essential Things To Know

sailing in turkey

How to get to the Turquoise Coast

Depending on which direction you want to sail in, you need to fly to Fethiye or Antalya. Turkish Airlines and Pegasus both fly domestically from Istanbul and several other Turkish destinations to these seaside ports. You can also reach these towns by bus or train, which you can read more about in my guide to using public transport in Turkey.

From the UK or other European destinations, in the summer months (April to October), many airlines fly to Fethiye or Antalya and you should be able to catch a good deal.

When is the best time to go sailing in Turkey

For prime weather conditions, the peak summer season from May to September is best. In these months, the crowds do swell but the weather is best and you can almost guarantee long, sunny, hoy days – perfect for sailing trips in Turkey!

How to choose a company for a Turkey sailing trip

It might seem a little overwhelming as so many companies offer gulet cruises in Turkey. For two day or longer trips, I would definitely recommend Alaturka Cruises . I found them online in advance of my visit. Not only did they have excellent reviews online, but their email support beforehand was brilliant. The price was great value and the dates worked perfectly for my two week Turkey itinerary .

The gulet boat that we sailed the Turquoise Coast on was really well-maintained and well-sized for the number of passengers on board. It was so hot during our sailing trip in late August that they recommended we slept out under the stars on deck. We slept on these comfy sun-loungers and it was amazing sleeping with a warm breeze. The crew with Alaturka were fantastic. They were really attentive and fun, but not overbearing at all. We had a crew of three Turkish guys who took such great care of us and gave us great tips and suggestions. I joined the gulet cruise as a solo female traveller and didn’t feel uncomfortable once.

The other passengers were from all over the world – including a family from Saudi Arabia, a couple from South Africa and the US, a few other Brits and Americans. Everyone got on so well and the atmosphere was brilliant. With Alaturka, you could also rent your own private gulet cruise boat or yacht with crew if you had your own big group.

What to pack for a sailing holiday

Depending on the company you go with, it’s unlikely you’d need to bring any bedding or towels. However, you will need lots of suntan lotion, swimwear and hats. The sun can be very strong and there may only be a certain amount of shade onboard. The gulet boats normally have quite a few inflatables and they’re nearly always full board.

Every sailing company will have its own policy for alcohol on board. Our gulet cruise with Alaturka offered a self-service bar with an honesty tab, therefore we didn’t need to bring our own alcohol on board.

I would recommend one or two evening outfits for the nights you dock in or near a port for the option to go out in the evening.

Where to stay before or after the sailing trip

The main sailing routes are Fethiye to Olympus, or the other way round.

Fethiye offers many accommodation options. One of the best luxury hotels is the Club Tuana, you can check rates here .

Otherwise you can find hundreds of other options covering all price ranges on here .

In Olympus, there is the very unusual offering of treehouses in this amazing valley town.

Some of the best options include:

  • Turkmen Treehouses
  • Kadir’s Treetop Houses
  • Olympus Deep Green Bungalows

Towns to visit along the Turquoise Coast, Turkey

Although it was the starting point to my gulet cruise in Turkey, Fethiye was possibly my least favourite town along the coastline. The town has experienced some mass overdevelopment in the past few decades and I imagine much of its charm has been lost.

I don’t know why, but before I arrived, it seemed to think Fethiye was going to be a quaint village so I was even more disappointed. That being said, it is the starting point for many sailing trips in Turkey so you don’t necessarily need to spend too long there. Its harbour is pretty beautiful but I didn’t particularly like the surrounding streets and restaurant areas.

Some of the key attractions in and around Fethiye include the ancient city of Kadyanda and the abandoned ancient Greek village of Kaya Köyü.

sunset on the Turquoise coast

Butterfly Valley

The first stop for many boats departing from Fethiye is the famed Butterfly Valley. This beautiful secluded cove is only reached by boat.

Its important to know that this beach isn’t sand, but instead, lots of tiny sharp rocks – really painful.

The beach sits at the entrance to a vast canyon, where there is also a cool off-the-radar back-to-basics campsite and a low-key bar and restaurants offering a cool hippy chilled vibe.

It’s called Butterfly Valley as it’s home to a butterfly farm, were there’s a huge diverse range of butterflies. August (when I visited) was not the season to see the butterflies, but the ones I did see were very colourful.

Butterfly valley, Turkey

Ölüdeniz is one of the most famous beaches in Europe. This stunning beach is regularly voted as one of the most beautiful, so I was really excited to dock here.

It really is a beautiful stretch, but as with many gorgeous beaches around the world, it certainly draws crowds and is pretty touristy.

One of the most popular activities to do in Ölüdeniz, and even in Turkey is paragliding. You can arrange this through your gulet cruise organisers, when you arrive in Ölüdeniz or in advance through GetYourguide. Book your paragliding jump here!

No matter which company you pick to go paragliding with, the experience is the same.

You depart from the centre of Ölüdeniz in a minibus with all of the paragliding kits and crew on board.

It’s one very long and perilous drive to the top of Babadag Mountain. I wondered a few times if the van was genuinely road-worthy enough, but we made it.

Ölüdeniz is one of the highest commercial locations in the world where you can paraglide. Together with the breathtaking views and consistently good weather, it is also one of the best places in the world to paraglide.

Once you reach the top, it takes no more than five minutes to jump into the gear and attach the parachute. You run down a short runway with your paragliding guide before, bam, you’re in the air.

We flew straight through the clouds, which was much like a warmer shower, before swerving sharply and emerging into the most spectacular view.

I was really impressed with my guide who I felt really wanted to make it an epic experience for me. He was very keen on making sure we tons of awesome photos and videos, and he really worked the ropes to create a stomach twisting experience. It was amazing!

Aside from paragliding, Ölüdeniz is also the starting point for the Lycian Trail, one of Turkey’s most iconic hiking routes.

In Ölüdeniz, there are also some great bars and cafes to enjoy some time in if you don’t feel like paragliding.

Paragliding in Olu Deniz

The beautiful harbour town of Kaş has a lot to offer and is a great town to visit along the Turquoise Coast. Its charming laneways are lined with interesting boutique stores, cute cafes, lively beach bars and metres of tumbling bougainvillea.

This area is also known for fantastic diving and many dive operators run trips straight from Kaş. Our boat trip with Alaturka permitted enough time to spend the afternoon diving, which was great.

We enjoyed fantastic cocktails at Mumi Cafe Beach. This beach bar had had an awesome atmosphere during the day, and I would highly recommend.

On the day we were in Kaş, it so happened to be Victory Day in Turkey. This meant that the evening was absolutely pumping. Hundreds of Turks had travelled from all over the country to revel in the town. It was an amazing experience as a tourist.

Exploring Kas in Turkey

The next stop along the coast is Kekova, and the magnificent Sunken City here – a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Kekova is home to incredible underwater ruins that were submerged following an earthquake. This area was once a prominent town in the Byzantine and Lycian eras, but is now completely deserted, except for a handful of goats.

This is a no walk, no diving zone. But many boats do sail past each day slowly to take in the incredible site. You can see rooms, staircases and doorways above the sea level, as well as make out pathways and more rooms under the water level. Luckily the water is completely translucent, and is one of the most unusual sites I have ever seen.

Underwater ruins

Kaleköy and Simena Castle

Along the Turquoise Coast, this tiny, traditional village was one of my favourite spots. Visiting this tiny hillside hamlet was like a step back in time. The ancient Simena Castle is located at the top of the village and is well worth a visit. It takes around 10 minutes of hiking through the tiny village and up into the hill. At the top, you’ll find the old fortress, once a notable Lycian settlement. Here you will find an incredible panoramic vista over the Gokkaya bay. The heat can be particularly intense here and despite it being quite a short hike, we ran out of water.

The tiny laneways of the village are lined with local women (and children) selling their homemade souvenirs. They were not pushy at all and I bought several lovely bracelets here.

Simena castle on Turkey's Turquoise Coast

Lastly, the final spot along the Turquoise Coast to visit (or first if you’re doing this route in reverse) is the hippie town of Olympos.

An odd mix of travellers descend on this incredibly beautiful town, nestled in a canyon and surrounded by fragrant forest. It has a tucked away beach and an atmosphere that’s really quite unique. Visitors stay in ‘treehouses’, and the bars are leafy, basic and so, so chilled. If have the time, this is a great place to finish the trip and spend a few extra nights.

sailing in Turkey

So that concludes my guide to sailing in Turkey and exploring the Turquoise Coast by traditional gulet boat. I hope this guide is useful. both for choosing a tour company and find out about the ports. As mentioned, this route is often referred to as ‘the blue cruise’.

If you’re considering a longer trip, you might find my  two-week Turkey itinerary  here useful. I’ve also written guides to  Bodrum ,   Pamukkale ,  Ephesus , Istanbul  and  Cappadocia  here.

The Turkish coastline you visited looks stunning. I would love to do a boat ride around here. 🙂 Looks like you had a whale of time especially swimming in the water.

Your pictures are amazing I had to look at them twice! What an experience that must have been, I never knew Turkey was so breath taking. The paragliding… Wow! I really enjoyed your post looks like a great future vacation.

My hubs is currently standing over my shoulder absolutely drooling at the thought of being able to do this kind of sailing. Those views are so magnificent what a lovely way to travel, peaceful, quiet and so beautiful.

Tehe, looks like you guys should definitely go and visit then 🙂

wow what a fabulous adventure! I would love to sail somewhere one day! I can’t believe I haven’t heard about Olu Deniz before ! Looks like a really nice beach! Your photos are amazing, I love the one of your jump especially ! So beautiful!

Picturesque coasts like those make it hard to leave the ship and explore. I could stare at that all day. But thankfully you pointed out numerous amazing things to do. I would thoroughly enjoy the paragliding. There is something about going through clouds that gives you an incredible feeling.

Turkey has always been one of the best countries I have visited until now, and can visit it many more times :), your pictures are just so amazing which makes me pack my bag and go to Turkey right away 🙂

Those are some amazing towns – Kas specially. It reminds me of a smaller town in Nepal called Bandipur with its cobbled pathways and bougainvillea. The water here is terrific, I definitely think that it is the best way to explore this coastline. Glad you shared your views on the same.

P.S: I love the pics

Really? I should definitely look into visiting there too!! 🙂 And thanks for your kind words about my photos!

This place is unbelievably beautiful. I’d book a trip here tomorrow if I could. The water looks so refreshing. I love beaches, I could stay here forever and not get bored for sure. The food looks really delicious as well. Definitely adding to my bucket list.

Eek, I’d also book a return trip back here tomorrow if I could! Thanks for your kind comment 🙂

The Turkish coastline seems so ethereal. The views, especially the sunset ones, are really breathtaking. I am sure it was a blissful experience cruising along on the turquoise coast of Turkey. The Olu Deniz beach looks gorgeous and the paragliding looks really exciting.

Hi Sandy! Yes, truly breathtaking! Thanks for your kind words!

Wow this sailing trip around turkey coast was stunningly beautiful. And added bonus the paragliding adventure love to do the sailing trip one day- another list added ti my bucket.

Awesome, glad to hear this post has inspired you! It is a truly beautiful coastline!

This is a really nice post. Thanks for sharing.

Great photos it makes me want to pack up and go now!!! I get sea sick so always worried about being on a boat on the ocean. Was it always calm?

Yacht Charter Reviews of Love Boat Gulet

You can ask for more reviews & direct references from us.

Superb! Like: The support from Erkan was superb. Our trip was originally scheduled for 2020, but Erkan facilitated a roll over to 2021 and again to 2022 due to the Covid travel restrictions from South Africa. Erkan is fantastic as the go-between and nothing is ever too much trouble for him. The Love Boat was exactly as pictured and the staff were fantastic. We had one or two translation issues / misunderstandings, but they were very helpful, polite and friendly the entire time. The food was superb! The Captain was also very accommodating with the air-conditioning, leaving it on for us most of the time. Dislike: Having a couple of industrial size ice machines would be great and making sure that the drinks fridges are re-filled every morning, so that we do not have to do it ourselves. Ensuring that we had enough ice bought from land every day was also a pain - we did run out of ice on one occasion. 26.08.2022
Built memories that we will cherish the rest of our lives Like: I have chartered a total of 4 boats over a 7 year period with the company (from a party of 4 to a party of 32 people) , always working closely with Erkan and on occasion dealing with few of his colleagues. Erkan is the most professional, accountable and dedicated person I have ever dealt with in the space of Marine business (I am a Yachtsman myself and own a sailing yacht). Erkan loves his job and it's his pride to make you happy and satisfied. It's paramount for him and that's what makes him unique. He has never disappointed on expectations for the entire period I have worked with him. He just takes all stress and anxiety out of the equation and makes it easy on you all along the process. He listens to your requests, proposes solutions, always honest in his assessments and never tries to "over sale" or "force" things on you. He understands that success in business is on the log term and building strong trustful relationships is key. This year in particular, our requests were numerous and more stringent to accommodate all sanitary measures relatives to COVID (Crew vaccination/testing, PCR tests, social distancing....etc...).... His other colleagues I dealt with were also very professional and very eager to help and support. I will continue to charter boats with Erkan every year it's possible for us....and the best thing for me to know ahead is that, next time, it will be another success story. If you are looking to charter a boat, hire the services of Erkan and his will be glad you did. For this year, we chartered the LOVE BOAT.... The only boat available at the time of booking that could accommodate 32 of our extended family (7 yo to 77 yo) . Simply: We had by far the most memorable vacation with the extended family and we have built unique memories that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. The boat is in a good/fair condition but the Captain, Crew and the Chef went above and beyond to make our vacation a true delight. The Owner of the boat is a great gentleman, who came to greet us, very welcoming and very diligent accommodating our sanitary requests because of Covid pandemic. The Captain was just the best Captain for all the boats I have chartered for the past 7 years. Professional attitude all across the board and attention to details was a focus for comfort, needs and privacy. The Chef was awesome, cooking with a smile and loved to please us. We celebrated 3 events while on board over a 2 weeks period (Gd-parent wedding anniversary, B'days, ...), and the crew was top notch at organizing the party/cake, etc... The whole crew gave us the privacy we needed but was also available to respond to all of our needs ALL TIMES including those of all of the kids. I hope that Erkan, all members of his company, the Love Boat owner and crew find in this humble and unsolicited review a modest reward for their work, dedication, drive and professional service. Bravo to all for a great service! Karim Benali, MD Manchester by the Sea, MA, USA Dislike: We didn't get the chance to include in the itinerary visits to Greek Islands because of Covid and border closure. That would be for next time.... It was also sad to see some of the areas burned by the exceptional fires that experienced the region this year. Captain Levante made sure our stops at the bays and also itinerary avoided as much as possible these spots. We didn't have problem with the smells or sights. 23.08.2021
Absolute hoot of a holiday - loved the boat, the staff, and Turkey Like: The crew were ALL fantastic, Jana looked after our every need and both the captains were very capable and very willing to please. All the food was delicious. We even had midnight snacks provided on a couple of occasions! Loved the top deck cabins and the fact that the lower cabins are very spacious. Dislike: For a boat that sleeps 32 people, 14 sun loungers are no way near enough - even if we just had the mattress rather than the whole bed it would have been fine. Jana did go out and buy some thicker towels for us to lie on but it really needs sorting out properly with beds. One request was fresh bread every day and this did not happen, also it was noted that we had a vegetarian and one person that did not eat fish, shellfish and lamb, on the lunches/dinners that was served there was nothing else for the two people to eat apart from the vegetables and sides that accompanied our meal - it wasn't a huge problem but I would have expected a vegetarian meal for both to be served otherwise why fill in the preference forms? 08.09.2019

Gulet Cruise Turkey Reviews

I was fortunate enough to experience first hand the fantastic service i was provided, by Caglar and his team. Would highly recommend and look forward to meeting and using their service again in 2023.

It was a very nice 7 day experience. We had a lot of fun and we will definitely repeat it. Food, service were all great. While waiting for a classic fish bread and salad, we found rich tables with many kinds of appetizers and main courses. Many thanks to all of you.

All in all it was a perfect holiday. Our every request was met with a smiling face by the kind and helpful staff. The cleanliness of the boat was by far the best we’ve ever been to. We would like to thank both the boat personnel and you who contributed to the organization.

It contributes a lot to the team that plans our holiday and provides service day and night. Our boat is perfect and the abrasive in the pictures. I had a very enjoyable time with canoe, water ski, paddle board, jet ski. We’ve already made a reservation for next year.

We had a wonderful holiday from the beginning to the last day. Mehmet Kaptan and his team hosted us very well. We still remember your rich tables and delicious meals. On behalf of our entire group, thank you again for everything. Hope to see you soon.
