Taking time away from your daily routine life for a holiday aboard is something that not everyone can have a chance to do all that easily. However when the opportunity arises for a luxury boat charter vacation, there’s no doubt that it can be a very exciting experience. Among the many tropical destinations on the map, one country that many travelers decide to visit at least once in their lifetime, is Turkey. This culturally diverse country may not be as tropical like other countries south of the equator; however travelers can expect great Mediterranean climate conditions to enjoy a luxury boat charter from Southern Turkey to island hopping in the Greek Aegean.
There are many places from the southern coast of Turkey that travelers can embark from. The major ports are Bodrum, a 40 minute drive from the airport; Gocek, a mere 20 minutes from Dalaman airport; Fethiye which is also quite close to the same airport, and Marmaris, otherwise known as gulet heaven and about an hour or so from the Dalaman airport. Where you decide to leave for your journey at sea, will determine your itinerary.
If you are looking for a mixture of two cultures, then leaving from the harbors of either Bodrum or Marmaris would be in your favor.
