Blue Voyage Turkey – Comprising of dozens of different breathtaking itineraries which take place along the turquoise coast of Southern Turkey is the world renown Turkish Blue Voyage. This original holiday concept starts from Bodrum and stretches as far as Antalya. You will be witness to stunning natural beauty combined with timeless history, picturesque coves, charming towns, and villages. It is possible to enjoy a highly fulfilling vacation that will offer you and your blue voyage guests so much in the Aegean and Mediterranean seas.
Custom tailored, a blue voyage is available at different levels of luxury for holidaymakers and based on their criteria. It is where you travel on board a Turkish gulet – handcrafted wooden yachts mainly constructed with ketch rigging.
The blue voyage isn’t limited to Turkey. It expands from the shores of Turkey out to the Greek islands in the Dodecanese and Cyclades. The main ports of embarkation and disembarkation include Bodrum, Marmaris, Gocek, and Fethiye. Sometimes some gulets can start from Kalkan – depending on their charter schedule. You can do island hopping in Greece by starting and ending in either Bodrum or Marmaris. These two ports are the closest to the Greek islands. Gocek and Fethiye fall too far out. Although it may be possible as well.
It is the perfect holiday for those who like/love to:
- Swim in crystal clear, turquoise waters
- Go fishing
- Do all sorts of different water sports
- Go to places where it is only accessible by boat
- Explore ancient cities, ruins, and many other sites dating back thousands of years
- Enjoy the services of a fully crewed yacht holiday
- Indulge in 100% Mediterranean and Aegean cuisine, fresh, plentiful, and very healthy.

The Blue Voyage also adresses the palet during the best sunsets with fresh and tasty fish, meat, chicken, and vegetable menus, colorful Turkish mezes, filled with peace or a lively night – your choice.
