"Don't just dream about a holiday sleeping on deck, under a velvet, star filled sky, listening to the sea lap at the hull below you.
...we can make it a reality for you."

A complete boat can be yours, just put a group together and you are among your friends and the only one on a traditional wooden Gullet. Such a trip is also a good idea for clubs and other parties. From 10 persons onward we reserve a boat for you and suggest the best itinerary.
Gullet Special Offer





"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

Sailing in Turkey means cruising along the many gulfs and bays of the much indented Turkish coastline. It is also a journey back in time, with a plethora of archaeological sites, castles and temples that reflect its importance in ancient and medieval times. Especially the south-west coast - roughly speaking the stretch of coastline from Bodrum, Marmaris, Fethiye and Kas to Antalya - is an ideal cruising ground.

Bodrum - ancient Halicarnassus


Bodrum - ancient Halicarnassus


Boarding starts at 15:30 from Bodrum Harbour. Early arriving guests can leave their luggage to our office. On the first day, our boat will remain anchored in Bodrum Port for dinner and an overnight stay. Bodrum has a history that goes back to the 12th century B.C. The city which was called 'Halicarnassus' was the birthplace of Herodotus; the 'Father of History' who lived in the 5th century B.C. The 'Mausoleum' of King Mausolus (350 B.C.) one of the Seven Wonders of the World is in this city. The only structure that survived from the Classical Era is the Amphitheatre. It is one of the oldest theatres in Anatolia with a capacity of 13.000 guests and it is still hosting many shows and concerts Another place that you should visit when you arrive in Bodrum is the landmark of the city, the
Castle of Saint Peter. It is one of the best preserved castles whose history goes back to the Middle Ages. 'Myndos Gate' that gave Alexander the Great some sleepless nights before he entered Halicarnassus is another place that you should not miss.

After breakfast, you will be informed about the cruise itinerary and the boat. Then we will start to cruise to Palamutbuku Bay early in the morning. We will anchor at Ince Burun after lunch and swimming breaks. We will stay in this lovely bay for dinner and an overnight stay.

After breakfast we will cruise to Aktur Bay. Then our first stop will be Bencik Bay; which has a very narrow entrance but a unique view once you get inside. Bencik is located at the narrowest part of the peninsula that divides Hisaronu Gulf from the Gokova Gulf but it is located at Hisaronu side. In 550s B.C. the Cnidus people wanted to dig a tunnel in the narrowest land piece of the peninsula between the Hisaronu Gulf and the Gokova Gulf as a defence line against the Persians. That way they would make two peninsulas one island and the defence easier. They started with diligence and put in a lot of effort; however, in the end they could not manage and the city was conquered by the Persians. Dinner and an overnight stay will be in Bencik Bay.


Hisaronu Gulf - a real gem on the Turkish Coast


Hisaronu Gulf- a real gem


After breakfast, we will anchor in Emel Sayin Bay and you can enjoy a swimming stop in this lovely bay. For lunch we will dock in Orhaniye. In Orhaniye Bay, you will see the unique scenery of a natural tidal formation called 'Kiz Kumu' (Maiden's Beach). There are so many myths about this reddish sand-path going from the shore to the inner parts of the sea which is suitable for walking along. On a tiny island located in the bay, you can see the ruins of an antique castle, a sign of an ancient city. Today, our final destination will be Selimiye for dinner and an overnight stay.


Bozburun - an untouched village in the Hisarönü Gulf


Bozburun - an untouched village


After anchoring in Dirsekbuku, we will go to Bozburun which is a small fishing town. This area was popular and suitable for sponge-diving but nowadays the people of the island are no more interested in sponge-diving as it is not financially beneficial and is dangerous. In recent years sponge-diving has been replaced by gulet tourism and nowadays Bozburun Gulets take their place in this sector.

We will cruise to Datca. Food and water will be supplied to the boat from Datca Harbour. Datca was founded by the Dorians who came from Aegean Sea to the southern coast of Ionia in the 7th century B.C. The island has no humidity at all and has fresh air with plenty of oxygen.

Knidos Temple od Aphrodite


base of the temple of Aphrodite


The historian Strabon was right when he remarked of Datca's weather: "God would send his beloved servants to Datca to live longer". You may take a walk in Datca Harbour. We will cruise to Cnidus for dinner and an overnight stay.
Cnidus was a developed city in science, art and architecture. Eudoxos, a very popular astronomer and maths professor; Dr. Euryphon; Polygontos, a popular painter; Skopas and Bryaksis of Faros, the most famous sculptors of the era; Sostrates, the architect of Alexandrian light house -one of the seven wonders of the World- and Ktesias the doctor, who saved the life of a Presian king from a disaster, lived on this island. Dr. Euryphon and his students founded the second biggest medical science school in Cnidus. The island also hosts the largest sun clock of its time which was erected by Eudoksos. Knidos was the home for Aphrodite's monument and in those times the city was famous for brothels and became popular for sailors and Arabic tradesmen. You may take a walk on the shore to see the ruins.

Lunch time on aftdeck

a swim in cristal clear waters

We will start to cruise early in the morning to Karaada (Black Island). Breakfast and a swimming break will be at Poyraz Bay which is located on the northern side of the island. This is such a nice bay with its turquoise-blue waters. We will be anchoring at Meteor Bay for lunch which is located on the southern side of the island. There is a meteor hole here and this is how the bay got its name. Here you may jump over the platform into the deep water. You may also take a walk through the underwater caves which are very near to Meteor Bay for a small local fee. We will dock in Bodrum Harbour for dinner and an overnight stay.

The guests will leave the boat with precious memories by 10:30 after breakfast.
