Blue cruise Cabin Charter perfect way to explore Turkey’s Turquoise Coast on a yachting holiday unlike any other. Only the Blue Cruise will give you the chance to explore the numerous bays and coves between the ports of Bodrum, Marmaris, Gocek, Fethiye and Antalya on Turkey’s Aegean and southern coasts, presenting a varied cruising opportunity. If you cannot get a group together so as to take your own yacht, you still have the opportunity to join one of our cabin charter voyages. Apart from private charters, we also offer voyages on a shared-yacht basis for individuals, couples and small groups.
Day 1 – In Marmaris
Your captain will welcome you onboard at 15:30 with a drink, and provide you with detailed info about the daily life on board our gulet, and our cruise program. Dinner and overnight on board the Gulet.
Day 2 – to Ekincik Bay
We begin our cruise after breakfast, as we depart Marmaris for Ekincik Bay, some distance to the southeast of Marmaris. Upon our arrival, you will have the option of taking a riverboat excursion to the site of ancient Caunos on the Dalyan River Delta, and then upriver to the sulphur mud baths. The broad, sandy beaches of the Delta are one of the last breeding places of the Mediterranean Sea Turtle “Caretta Carettas”. Dinner and overnight in Ekincik Bay. (Note: the Dalyan riverboat excursion is not included in the cruise price.)
Day 3 -to Tersane Island and Kizil Island
Because of the wavy seas of Disibilmez and Kurtoglu capes that we have to cross, we will cruise earlier than the other days and reach the world-famous Gocek Gulf. We will anchor at Tersane Island for breakfast and swimming break. This naturally protected harbour was used as the shipyard in Byzantine and Ottoman times. We will cruise to Manastir (Monastery) Bay. This place is also known as Cleopatra Bay or Sunken Bath Bay due to the beautiful underwater ruins of an old bath. Dinner and overnight stay at Kizil Island.
Day 4 – to Fethiye
Arrive at Fethiye Harbor early in the morning. Fethiye, which was known as Telmessos in the ancient times, was the most important city situated on Lycia’s western border with Caria. It is believed that the city’s name comes from Apollo’s son Telmessos. As the name suggests, the city was the city of light and was famous for its prophets. We also offer the option of a jeep safari tour in Fethiye. For those who will not join the Safari, the boat will cruise to Samanlik Bay for lunch and swimming. Afterwards around 16:00 the boat will anchor at Ece Saray Marina for dinner and overnight stay
Day 5 – Gocek and Yassica Islands
After breakfast, depart from Fethiye Harbour for Gocek Island. While moving through uniquely beautiful islands, we finally anchor at Yassica Islands. Lunch will be taken in this beautiful chain of little islands. Snorkeling in the crystal clear water is recommended. Dinner and overnight in a bay amongst the islands of Gocek.
Day 6 – to Bedri Rahmi bay and Aga harbour
After breakfast, sail to the spectacularly stunning Bedri Rahmi Bay, named after a famous Turkish artist and then to Sarsala Bay. Cruise to Aga Limani before lunch. Overnight stay in this lovely bay.
Day 7 – Kadirga Bay, Cennet Island, and Marmaris
This morning, we’re off to Kadirga Bay, a great spot for swimming and surfing. Then we will sail on to Cennet Island for a last dive into the clear waters of outer Marmaris Bay and then to Paradise Island. With the setting sun as a backdrop, we head to our anchorage in Marmaris Bay for dinner and overnight.
Day 8 – Disembarkation
