Holiday Information

Cruise the Aegean’s pristine blue waters on board a Turkish gulet – a classic, twin-masted, hand-built vessel built to traditional designs, finished in gleaming hardwood and furnished with modern comforts. Stretch out on the forward sun deck, dine under awnings or in the plush saloon, swim and snorkel to your heart’s content. When days of hidden coves or delightful ports of call are done, enjoy a convivial drink with new-found friends under skies awash with stars.

Itinerary

Day 1 - Fly to Bodrum

Fly to Bodrum and upon arrival, transfer by coach to the quayside for embarkation. Meet your welcoming crew and fellow passengers and enjoy a first on-board dinner of traditional Turkish mezes, followed by a fish or meat dish and dessert. Perhaps step ashore to take in some of Bodrum’s famously lively nightlife, as your gulet moors in the port.

Day 2 - Rest and relax

Awaken in your comfortable cabin, and make your way on deck for the first delicious breakfast; a mix of Turkish and traditional continental fare, with special dishes prepared each morning by the chef. An informal but important pre-sailing briefing is given by the captain and on-board guide. Formalities completed, your vessel makes her way out of the harbour into the blue Gokova Gulf, away from Bodrum’s low-rise, whitewashed buildings, heading gently towards a first anchorage, in idyllic Alakisla Inlet. As every day, today there will be time to enjoy the warm sunshine and an opportunity for a swim or snorkel, a light lunch will be served with the ship at anchor.After a chance, to step ashore to wander through the ruins of a Byzantine village, and to enjoy afternoon tea and cake aboard, your ship makes her way in the early evening sun to the picturesque fishing village of Cokertme, where dinner is served. Step ashore, or simply enjoy a social hour or two under the stars aboard your gulet home.

Day 3 - Call at Tuzla Bay and English Harbour

Another relaxing day of gentle sailing, – or motoring if winds are light – includes calls at sparkling Tuzla Bay and tiny English Harbour, so called for the refuge it provided during WW2 to a Royal Navy warship. Before dinner is served at anchor in this glorious setting, there will be time for swimming and snorkelling in the pine-fringed blue waters.

Day 4 - Optional excursions to Marmaris and Dalyan

Enjoy an early morning dip before a breakfast cruise across the Gokova Gulf to the beautiful fishing port of Karacasogut, in its forested setting. While your crew replenishes the gulet’s supplies, you can step ashore to explore, or perhaps to join an excursion to bustling Mamaris, one of the Turkish Aegean’s most famous resorts. Alternatively, take the optional excursion (payable locally) by jeep to the little town of Dalyan, famed for nearby Iztuzu Beach, a refuge for the protected caretta caretta sea turtles, which lay their eggs in its soft sand.However you spend your enjoyable day, you’ll return to Karacasogut and dine on board this evening.

day 5 - Included visit to Sedir Island

A morning passage, returning westwards, brings you to Sedir Island, where the ancient ruins of Greco-Roman Cedrai are windows on the distant past. Legend has it that Mark Anthony wooed Cleopatra on the island, importing the beach sand from North Africa. The romance is continued with this afternoon’s call in exquisite Ballisu Cove and this evening’s overnight mooring in beautiful Longoz, where you might enjoy a stroll in the pine-scented surrounding forest before dinner is served on board.

Day 6 - Included visit to Orak Island

The idyllic voyage continues today with a leisurely passage, via Kargili Bay, to beautiful Orak Island. Its crystal-clear waters teeming with aquatic life make paradise for snorkellers. Step ashore for a stroll on the island, before spending the evening and night under the stars in this stunning location.

Day 9 - Return to Bodrum

A last morning is spent cruising towards Pabuc Burnu, a maquis-covered headland famed for its clear, calm waters, from which the remains of a 6th-century B.C. shipwreck were recovered only a few years ago. Swim in the turquoise sea and enjoy a last lunch and a final cruise back towards Bodrum. Tea is served in beautiful Haremten Bay, before your gulet returns to port. A last dinner is served on board, after which you can rel ax with your new-found friends aboard the vessel, or head into town for another taste of Bodrum’s famously lively nightlife.

Day 8 - Fly back to the UK

Bid farewell to your crew and fellow passengers and transfer to the airport and the return flight, at the end of a wonderful cruise. Please note: At the captain’s discretion, it may be necessary to alter the order of the itinerary on your holiday. Passages will be made under sail when winds allow, or under motor on calmer days.

Gulet Cruise Ship

The traditional, wooden gulet is twin-masted, but with an inboard 440-horsepower engine for windless days. It offers accommodation for a maximum of just 16 passengers, in eight comfortable cabins.

Facilities & Amenities

In addition to a forward sunbathing area and aft dining quarter, which is perfect for al fresco breakfasts, the air-conditioned saloon has a TV, music system, refrigerator and ice maker, as well as another dining area and the ship’s well-stocked bar. Your vessel will carry snorkelling and fishing equipment.

Cabins

Each cabin has a private WC and shower, hot and cold water, and 220v electricity points.
