A Charter Boat Holiday along the Turkish Coast

A Turkish sailing holiday starts by getting to your base on the southwestern coast. Airports at Bodrum, Dalaman (50km from Fethiye), and Antalya have daily flights from Istanbul plus some international services over the summer. Alternatively, you can take a ferry to Bodrum, Fethiye, or Marmaris via the Dodecanese Greek Islands. Once in the region, you will be looked after by our professional charter boat providers, who will set you up for your Turkish sailing holiday experience.

While this part of Turkey is collectively known as the Turquoise Coast, there are enough places to visit to describe the region as four-sailing zones. Starting from the northwest, the stretch north of Bodrum, one of the main charter boat bases is named Ionia for the Greeks who settled the area around 700BCE. Ionia has a reputation for fine weather and ancient ruins. Classical history may not be your prime reason for choosing this sailing destination, but while there it is worthwhile taking time out to appreciate Turkey’s place in the foundations of Western civilization. Didyma (Temple of Apollo) and Ephesus are two well-known sites of antiquity close to ports in the Gulf of Gulluk. One charming aspect of the Turkish coast is that the ruins are more open for you to chance upon as a part of the landscape, rather than as a controlled tourist attraction.
