Dodekanes Inseln

New: Map of the Dodecanese Islands in Greece

Goin' to Greece
When chartering a gullet in Turkey, you might consider going to Greece for visiting some of the beautiful islands like Symi, Rhodes, Kos, Kalymnos or Patmos.
So let us explain a few points you should know:
1) There are extra harbor taxes for Greek waters
(about 300 € one week/boat)
2) Passenger limit 12 pax
3) Stops or even anchoring in bays or coves are not allowed, only harbours

What to bring
Travel light - is our best advice to you, swimsuits and T-shirts is all you need on board during daytime. In the evenings people dress casually, but bring sweaters and long trousers if you are coming in the cooler months. It's a good idea to bring a pair of soft shoes or sandals just to use on the boat.
On board we provide hand towels only so please bring your own bath and beach towels.
All this should be packed into a soft bag, not a suitcase, which can be folded and stowed away to give more room in your cabin.
The Mediterranean sun is very bright and on a moving boat hotter than you think, be sure to pack sunglasses, a good suntan lotion and a hat. If mosquitoes find you tasty then bring mosquito repellent and a camera is an absolute must,
and please send some of your pictures to us so we can place them on our pages

Ideal for a group up to 12 guests, or when with kids, up to 14,
- all cabins with air-condition

The coast of Turkey, with its deep inlets, wide gulfs and sheltered bays, and the nearby Greek islands, is a unique holiday region.

The Turkish cuisine is considered to be among the finest in the world, for sure she is one of the healthiest. On board the M/S ASENSENA you will find the finest Turkish dishes, prepared using the freshest vegetables, fish and meats. Our cook is an expert in his field. He will pamper you with three meals a day: breakfast, lunch and a dinner. If you have any special dietary requirements (if there are certain foods you dislike or mustn't eat), simply let him know. He will be able to prepare dishes to suit your exact taste.

Your meals on board:
You may choose between Full board (3 meals + tea time) price € 28,- p/person.
Soft Drinks and alcoholic drinks are extra, we can buy them at supermarket prices and you just pay us the bill plus a service-extra for the crew of only 10%: We think that's a fair offer and all previous guests did appreciate that very much.
Meals are mainly served on deck under the awning which protects you from the sun. In cooler months, our guests dine in the deck salon.

Let's be honest about air-condition on gullets
There is nearly none of the gullet charter-companies who tells you the truth about the use of air-condition on Gullets. Yes, yes M/S ASENSENA has AC and you think you can switch it on when you ike. It's not! On a boat the AC can only run when the generator is on, or in a harbor when connected to 220 Volt. But mainly you are in anchor bays, often next to a neighbor who doesn't like the noise of your generator and you wouldn't like it either from your neighbour during the night for example.
So most of the gullets have come to a gentlemen's agreement not to disturb each other - AC can be used on the most of the boats 2-3 hours in the morning or at night from 20 to 24 hours.
