"The small harbors and settlements offer an intimate view of coastal life which large ships cannot replicate authentically.
In many ways a gulet is like a full service hotel where every room has a sea view and the scenery changes constantly

M/S AKSONA, the sponge diving boat was built by one of the great masters of boat-building "Ziya Usta" in Bodrum. It is a "Tirhandil" (double-ender) with the length of 18,5 m and the width of 6 m.

M/S AKSONA and her Captain Mehmet Bas together present you with a "Blue Voyage" along Turkey's Aegean and Mediterranean shores for periods of your own choice. A private "Blue Voyage" for your own group for up to eight passengers.
The cruise route, and the bays, villages and townships, and archaeological ruins to be visited will be determined according to your preference. Each detail will be discussed with your wishes as to present you with a vacation bespoke for you and your group. If you wish, M/S AKSONA, formerly a classical fishing vessel of "Tirhandil" design, will stop her engines and with her sails fully stretched by wind, will silently cruise as you to listen to the sea. You will be able to change the cruise schedule at will and drop anchor wherever you please for as long as you wish.


All services will be served on board by the crew. Victuals and menus will be provided according to your wishes.

To share Aksona Mehmet's sponge diving and seamanship accretion of more than 35 years with a "Blue Voyage" will truly be an unforgettable experience. It will be possible to witness with your own eyes, together with Aksona Mehmet, the immense difference between the surface and the depths of the sea, and discover the mysteries, the excitement, the magnificence of the deep sea.
As a parting remark, Aksona Mehmet has this to say: "Anyone who embarks my boat, no matter from which part of the world, deserves the best of everything".
