Gocek Marmaris Gocek
Yacht charter vacations can be nearly anyplace in the entire world your budget allows. Sailing holidays in Turkey and Mediterranean Islands yacht charters are renown both for weather, fishing and splendor. The two of these places provide a bounty or leisure routines. Deep sea fishing, water skiing, scuba diving and swimming with the dolphins and turtles just to mention a number of.
The crystal blue waters are teaming with marine existence, reefs, and ruins. The scuba diving is incredible. The searching in the modest towns is a cut price hunter's paradise.It might be a aspiration of yours to cruise the stunning azure waters in some unique location aboard your own non-public. Like me and absolutely everyone else you are not receiving any more youthful it is higher time you produced that dream appear true.
Day 1 Gocek, Aga Limani
First stop of your gulet trip Turkey is Gocek. With Dalaman International airport only 20- minutes away, Gocek is a jewel of a town nestled between Fethiye and Dalyan. What puts Gocek on the map is its 6 marinas and the bay area is also a harbor for islands that provide ample anchorage for many yachts. This amazing harbor town is home to Super Yachts and is a great starting point for many a yacht charter in the Mediterranean.
Day 2 Gokgemile Bay, Kadirga Harbor
Boat charter Turkey continues with Gokgemile Bay. Just a short sail away from Oludeniz is Gokemile Bay. This is a lovely place to visit, and a short walk to the top of the island will provide you with a panoramic view of the entire area with all its coves and bays.
Just west of Marmaris you come to the blue flag awarded and shelter Kadirga Harbour. Aptly awarded since it has amazing clear waters and provides a nice respite for a quick dip.
Day 3 Bozukkale (Loryma), Marmaris
Bozukkale is a lovely ancient town nestled in a heart shaped bay with an old nine towered castle dating back to re-history. It is located southwest of Marmaris and is home to the ancient harbor or Lorima. The ancient Athenian navy used (Lorima) Bozukkale as a base for over a century between 305 to 395 BCE. This amazing town has grand views over all the Aegean and that is why it was chosen as a standing ground for gulets. Today it is a standing ground for Yachts seeking a wonderful place for their passengers to visit. The many ancient sites and modern amenities make the town of Bozukkale a perfect visiting point along your sea voyage.
Day 4 Ekincik (Dalyan)
Between Marmaris and Dalyan lays the wonderful bay of Ekincik. What is most beautiful in this bay is small Iztuzu Beach. Iztuzu Beach is closed at night since it is a nesting ground for the loggerhead turtle, otherwise it provides a carefree pebble and sand beach environment during the day, when only a few yachts are moored off its side. Just after the beach you will find the Dalyan Delta, and this is an explorers dream, with its Lycian tombs and the ancient ruined city of Kaunos. If you prefer a more active respite, then take to some of the water sports offered in the bay of Ekincik. Apart from these three activities, which should be enough, there is also a short brisk walk along the western banks of the Delta that will provide you with a chance to spot a wild boar foraging for food.
Day 5 Tersane Island, Domuz Island, Gobun Bay
The biggest island in the Gulf of Fethiye is Tersane Island, known also as Shipyard Island. This bay has a 100 meter deep channel that was used by the Ottoman navy, hence the name shipyard island. The bay area has a lot of coves and towards the east lies the Summer harbor. The west side of the bay is not used much due to the strong winds that prevail most of the year. There is an ancient ruined town nearby called Telandria, and if you want to stretch your legs while gulet sailing Turkey , this is a great place to do so.
Day 6 Yavansu Bay, Cleopatra`s Bath, Sarsala Bay
Next stop of your gulet boat holidays is Yavansu Bay. Yavansu, or Sea Gull bay is a popular tourist spot for both foreign and local visitors. The bay has fig trees and small streams running down from the mountains. However, the fresh water is only for animal use, not human. The name Se Gull comes from the mosaics found in the bay and is linked to the ancient town of Arymaxa found at the top of the hill. Aymaxa is home to four Roman mausoleums and a Hellenistic tomb, as well as a Byzantine cistern, all proof of this locations long inhabited history.
Day 7 Bedri Rahmi (Tasyaka) Bay, Kille Buku, Yassica Islands
Bedri Rahmi Bay is named after the famous Turkish author Bedri Rahmi Eyuboglu, he used to come fishing in the bay, which was previously known as Dark Bay since Lycian times. During one of his fishing trips in 1973, he drew a fish on a rock at the entrance of the bay, giving the rock a new title “Fish Rock”, this is now the name for the entire area. This bay is a nice spot for goolets cruising which is well sheltered, so winds do not prevail, and the colors are distinct, with the clear azure waters contrasting with the green pines, olive trees and oleanders that populate the hillside. The overall effect is exaggerated by a clear cyan sky.
Day 8 Gocek
You arrive at Gocek at the end of your blue voyage Turkey, after taking in all the wonders of the Mediterranean, possibly also the Aegean and Adriatic. When you berth in Gocek, take some time off before you leave to the airport. Enjoy the wonders of this beautiful town and take one last taste of all that Turkey has to offer. Walking the promenade and enjoying the sunset. Maybe that carpet you saw when you arrived is still waiting for you to buy it and place it at home, providing extra warm, memories of an ancient coastline and land filled with warm wonders and experiences.
