All Our Cabin Charter Itineraries
More about the Blue Cruise
just dream about a holiday sleeping on deck, under a velvet, star filled sky, listening to the sea lap at the hull
...we can make it a reality for you."
What to bring
light is our best advice to you, swimwear and T-shirts is all you will need on board in the daytime. In the evenings
people dress casually, but bring sweaters and 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 which can be folded and stowed away to give more room in your cabin, not a suitcase.
The Mediterranean sun is very bright and on a 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.
Embarkation days: SATURDAYS 9:00 am

more about the itinerary
This Blue Cruise program includes all the famous sites, such as Oludeniz, Butterfly Valley, Kas, and the World
Heritage Sunken City, as well as a few of our own secret sailing spots and anchorages along this breathtaking coastline.
All of our yachts – which are known as gulets in Turkey - have been made entirely by hand using wood, sourced from
around the world. Onboard, accommodation comprises of private cabins, all with ensuite bathrooms and hot showers.
All meals are prepared by your onboard chef using the freshest of Turkish ingredients, while your crew will be
at the helm to cruise you to the best of anchorages for the night. So all you have to do is sit back and relax
with a drink and your new friends while you watch one of the most spectacular sunsets in the Mediterranean.
A short sail to the east brings you lo Kalkan, a small, lovely hilltop town that overlooks a tiny bay. Narrow,
winding streets lined with souvenir shops lead down to the charming marina- Every morning, boats busily take tourists
lo one of the nearby beaches or small bays. As the sun sets, it is Kalkan style to meet on the roof terraces for
a drink before dinner, and enjoy the comings and goings of the yachts, the business of the marina and the panoramic
view to the Gulf of Kekova is one of the most picturesque stretches of the coast and
has several bays and villages to explore. The charming village of Üçagiz (literally "three mouths")
has a few remains of the Lycian village of Teimiussa. On Kekova, there is no trace of the city which once dominated
the island - its ruins and foundations can now only be seen under the surface of the clear water on the northern
side of the island. On land, there’s nearby Kale, a village on a steep hillside leading up to the medieval fortress
and theatre of ancient Simena. The local landscape is dotted with the ruins of Lycian tombs, forts and Greek settlements.
Xanthos was the greatest city of ancient Lycia and suffered the gruesome fate of being destroyed
several times by its inhabitants to save it from falling to attacking forces. It was less well defended against
the historic looting during the 1800s, when numerous articles were shipped to the British Museum - their ownership
is still under dispute. Nevertheless, the impressive ruins are still well worth a look.
Kalkan is a quiet port town built on the steep hillside leading down to the harbour. It's very
pretty, with charming, winding streets lined with old buildings, quaint shops and streetside quiet restaurants
and bars. From Kalkan, it's not far to Patara, Xanthos and Letoon, another Lycian settlement, which was named after
the goddess Leto, mother of Apollo and Artemis.
Kas is just around the coast from Kalkan. It is slightly larger and more developed than its
neighbour but still very charming, with streets and shops leading down to the sea. Kas was one of the earliest
settlements of the Lycian era, when it was called Antiphellos. A large sarcophagus dominates the centre of town,
and the sheer rock face overlooking Kas is dotted with Lycian rock tombs. The Greek Island of
Meis lies just off the coast.

Cabin Charter - general information
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.
