Turkish Gulet Cruises (Standard Gulets)

Gulf of Fethiye Cruise from Marmaris (8 Days)

Explore the azure waters of the Turkish coast or the hidden bays of the Greek islands by taking a 'Blue Cruise' on a traditionally designed Turkish Gulet. These gulets are of wooden construction, vary in size from 15 to 30 metres and are motor-powered, although the sails will be hoisted when the wind and time permit. The small size of the gulets allows access to remote bays and archaeological sites that can only be reached by water, so if the idea of bathing on deserted beaches, swimming in crystal waters and enjoying the culture and undisturbed character of this part of the world appeals, then a gulet cruise could be for you. The fleet comprises two categories; Standard Gulets and Luxury Gulets which have the added benefit of air conditioning.

Embark

Embark at 15.30 in Marmaris Harbour.

Day 1: Marmaris

Join your gulet and meet your fellow passengers and gulet captain at Marmaris Harbour this afternoon. The boat will remain in Marmaris overnight and dinner will be served on board.

Day 2: Ekincik Gulf - Dalyan

Over a leisurely breakfast there will be a briefing to introduce you to the boat and your itinerary. Then your cruise begins as the gulet sets sail for the Ekincik Gulf. From here there is a chance to join an optional tour to Dalyan. A small boat called a ‘piyade’ will take you firstly to Turtle Beach for a swim stop. Enjoy the natural beauty of the delta as your river boat takes you past ancient rock tombs to the mud baths where you can relax and rejuvenate! The final stop of the tour will be at the fishing village of Dalyan. The gulet will remain in the Ekincik Gulf for dinner and overnight.

Day 3: Tersane Island - Kizil Island

It’s an early start this morning as the gulet needs to cross the lively seas of Dişibilmez and Kurtoğlu to reach the world-famous Gocek Gulf. The ship will anchor in Tersane Island where you can enjoy breakfast and a swimming break. The cruise continues to Manastir Bay, also known as as Cleopatra Bay or Sunken Bath Bay due to the beautiful underwater ruins of an old bath. The ship moors overnight at Kizil Island.

Day 4: Fethiye

Arrive in Fethiye early in the morning, which was known in ancient times as Telmessos and once the most important city on Lycia’s western border with Caria. The town of Fethiye now stretches out in a huge natural semicircle and is protected by twelve small islands. You may join an optional jeep safari tour in Fethiye. For those who will not join the Safari, the boat will cruise to Samanlik Bay for lunch and swimming.

Day 5: Gocek Island - Yassica Islands

Today your cruise takes you to the world-famous Gocek Gulf and Gocek Island. Travel through the uniquely beautiful islands and anchor at the Yassica Islands in time for lunch. The naturally protected harbour was used as a shipyard in Byzantine and Ottoman times. Dinner and your overnight mooring will then be in a bay amongst the islands of Gocek.

Day 6: Bedri Rahmi Bay - Sarsala - Aga Limani

After breakfast sail to the spectacular Bedri Rahmi Bay, named after a famous Turkish artist and then onto Sarsala Bay. The boat then cruises to Aga Limani before lunch where it will remain overnight.

Day 7: Kadirga - Cennet Island - Marmaris

Starting earlier this morning the gulet cruises to Cape Kadirga Bay (depending on weather). Kadirga Bay is a quiet picturesque location where you will spend ample time swimming.
