What’s even better is doing it all on board Turkish gullets. These handcrafted wooden boats are designed with features that represent the culture of Turkey in design, decor and hospitality. Warm and friendly atmosphere, local dishes, mixed with the culture on board and where you visit, will make your gulet cruise holiday all the more authentic and true to the country’s characteristics in the Mediterranean or Aegean regions.
A few hightlights if you are embarking from Bodrum port is the preserved ancient city of Knidos located on the Datca peninsula. Then there are the ruins found in Batik Haman and Tersane island in the Gulf of Fethiye. Actually you will find more ancient ruins in the Fethiye region than anywhere else on the southern coast after Didyma (near Kusadasi).
Even more can be explored in the Antalya province at sites such as Demra (Myra), Kekova (sunken city of Simena and Kalekoy), further east to Xanthos, Patara, Olympos and Phaselis.
There are many gulet charters to choose from. Each is designed with personalized characteristics. From small gullet charters starting at 12 meters all the way as long as 56 meters – and many other sizes in between, discover how fascinating and entertaining a Turkey blue cruise vacation can be for your holidays!
