The Blue Voyage is yacht tour, cruising along the picturesque south-west Mediterranean and Aegean shores of Turkey. It offers full board and usually for one week or more between May and October. A traditional boat called “Gullet “is used on the voyage. They are made of pine wood and styled with pointed fore and round aft. Although they are equipped with masts they are more suitable for cruising than sailing. They have superior sea going capacity and are comfortable, offering toilets and showers in their cabins, large sitting areas and wide sun decks. There are not specific routes for the voyage. The fabled blue voyage gullet sails through the crystal clear blue coastal waters of the Turkish Aegean and Mediterranean past beaches, pine – forested shorelines and sleepy harbor towns to secluded coves and bays dotted with Picturesque islands and marble ruins to explore.
The Crew: Consists of Captain, two or three seamen. One of them is always a guide who knows your language, others will cook the meals and sail the boat. All of them will be responsible for making the cruise an unforgettable pleasure for our guests.
A day of “Blue Cruise”
Everyday we cruise a few hours and if the wind is fair, then we loose the sails to drop anchor in a solitary bay or near a small village. Then you have time for swimming, diving, fishing, snorkeling, and wind surfing, making a trip on land or just taking a sunbath on deck. The resort towns of Marmaris, Bodrum and Kemer – Antalya, homeports to the majority of gulets, are the main boarding and disembarkation spots for blue voyages. There are several routes for the Blue Voyages.
The following are the Itineraries for our regular yacht tours for individuals, we recommend the same routes for organized groups as there is a certain geographical logic for everyone but we can discuss with you other possible combinations.
