Turkish Blue Coast Gulet

We have arranged a very different type of family holiday for you and your children. We have loads of family activities such as swimming, snorkelling, hiking, canoeing in the sea and other optional water sports as well as visiting beautiful beaches, the lively towns of Fethiye and Marmaris and historical sites too.

You will be sailing around the Turkish Blue Cruise coast onboard a wooden sailing boat known as a gulet. The Captain and his English partner Anne with their Turkish crew take care of everything for you including the sailing and cooking!

The Turkish Blue Cruise coast is surely at its best on this tour. Sailing from Marmaris, along the Fethiye Gulf and around the famous Gocek Islands you cannot fail to be enchanted by the wooded mountains as they meet the turquoise waters where the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas meet.

A wonderful combination of walking, relaxation, sightseeing, alfresco eating, drinking and of course sailing along this stunning coastline. Once we drop anchor there's plenty of ways to relax whether you spend your time snorkelling, using the onboard canoe and windsurfer or catching up on your reading you are sure to have a great holiday.

Wine and dine under the sun and stars, enjoying excellent Turkish cuisine cooked every day by the onboard chef using the freshest of local ingredients. Vegetarians can easily be catered for.

We have chartered a luxury gulet where you will find onboard that every cabin has individually controlled air-conditioning and has a private en-suite bathroom with home style toilet. Our gulet has 9 cabins with plenty of space for dining and sunbathing on the fore aft decks.

Thank you so much for organising the Turkey gulet trip, it was everything I hoped it would be from the description, I just would very much have loved a second week of it! The boat was great, wonderful fresh food, lovely staff and the best bit was sleeping out on deck every night under the shooting stars.

Riccarda.

Had the best time ever. Thanks.

Nik and Jak.

I would also like to take the opportunity to say that we all had an amazing holiday which we will remember for a long time. It was the best holiday I have had with the kids! Thank you to you, the captain and all the crew for making it so special.

Regards, Danny

Turkish Blue Coast GuletAccommodation

Our luxury gulet sleeps 18 in 9 cabins, some cabins have one large bed and some have two individual beds, all have en-suite bathrooms with flush toilet and shower. Some families will be allocated a twin cabin and some a double berth.

With a spacious aft deck designed for dining and lounging in the shade of a sun awning, the forward deck has sunbeds so you can relax and enjoy the cool breeze as you sail from bay to bay.

On our gulet blue cruise, we will be sailing around the beautiful turquoise coast, visiting sites such as the ruins of Caunos, the mud baths and the golden sands of Turtle Beach. You will cruise on the gulet for an average of 3 - 4 hours per day, sometimes under motor and under glorious sail when weather and time permits; Sometimes being led by a school of dolphins as we sail from one small secluded cove to another; swimming and snorkelling in beautiful bays discovering the centuries old ruins of a village submerged in the crystal clear waters.

Why is this a great holiday for Single Parents and Kids?

turkish-gulet3

Children have the time of their life on this holiday, they seem to have unlimited energy for jumping and diving off the boat into the sea, learning how to snorkel and of course splashing their parents! Often, the kids get together and put on a show (we love it when they do Mamma Mia since we know all the words now! The crew love to help!).

The safety issues for children onboard aren't so different to children being near the sea or a swimming pool on a traditional beach holiday, but certainly do need to be considered. Children shouldn't be younger than six years old and should be able to swim (confidently or not!), please bring swimming bands if necessary. Parents clearly need to take responsibility for their children on this holiday.
