Die Badebucht fuer sich allein

Felsgraeber in Fethiye




Our voyage starts in Marmaris a lively tourism centre and Turkey’s busiest yacht-chartering port. It has a large harbour, which was the starting point for several historic military assaults by sea, a big marina development with lots of shops, bars and restaurants.
more about Marmaris

A route along the South coast of the Datca peninsula . Picturesque inlets, some delightful for a swim, others perfect for a walk ashore to a true Turkish village. An 'almost cordon bleu' restaurant where everything comes by boat, rickety jetties and shades of ancient glories and beauties all this awaits you.

Cabin Charter - general information

Gulet for Cabin Charter on a Blue Cruise


All tours which are offered here take place on Standard-Yachts, the traditional Bodrum-built GULET. All yachts are between 19 - 25 meters length, these vessels accommodate between 12 and 16 guests in 6 to 8 cabins. The cabins have en-suite WC & handheld showers. (Hot & cold). There is a music set, VHF Radiotelephone and a dinghy on each yacht, but in general no air condition. Crew consists of a captain, cook and a deckshand.
An exact yacht’s name can not be available until 1 or 2 days before departure, as numbers of bookings come in often late. This works well over the years like a cooperative and we advice you to give us your mobile phone that we stay in contact to give you captain's number and boat name.
The crew aboard our Gulets and yachts often do not have a foreign language mastered, but they almost always know a few ’every-day’ phrases and are able to understand almost all requests.
