Having over 5177 miles of coastline and four seas, Turkey is a real treasure chest of coves, inlets, bays and beaches.Unlike cruises on large ocean liners, on a Turkish gullet you can explore the secluded and often deserted bays, coves and islands of the spectacular Turkish coastline. You will see a hidden Turkey, beautiful beyond belief, and most of it completely unseen by most of the tourists!
Blue Cruise combines sun, sea, history and hikes at various cruise destinations. You can either relax in your swimming suit all day long, enjoy the good food and the sunshine, or you can experience more exciting activities like snorkelling, fishing, water skiing, banana rides or exploring the natural and historical sites.
Demre Harbour – Fethiye Harbour
May through October
Sailing in Turkey allows you to experience a truly enriching cultural exchange with the hospitable and gracious people of the coastal villages and towns. The small harbours and settlements offer an intimate view of coastal life which large ships cannot replicate authentically. In many ways a gullet is like a full-service hotel where every room has a sea view and the scenery changes constantly!
