We invite you to enjoy blue cruises and yachting holidays with utmost attention; motor yachts, Turkish Gulets or sailing yachts are crewed yacht charter options.
 
With over 8.333 kilometers of coastline along the four seas, Turkey is a treasure chest of coves, inlets, bays and beaches at which yachtsmen can choose a different and private anchorage each night. The sailing paradise of Turkey is also home to Blue Voyage. This idyllic cruise means sailing with winds, into coves and over the seas and becoming one with nature. It is also an experience of the history of man from the land, a journey that will carry you to the private beach of Cleopatra, the eternal fires of remains of ancient civilizations.
 
Turkey is considered to be the cradle of numerous ancient civilizations such as Hierapolis, Ephesus, Halicarnassus, Olympos, Phaselis, Letoon, Xhantos, Patara, which are nowadays called, Bodrum, Marmaris, Gocek, Fethiye or Antalya.
 
We invite you to an unforgettable voyage called Blue Cruise, a perfectly organized motor yacht charter in Turkey with confidentiality and peace of mind, where Lycian, Karian civilizations such as, Xhantos, Patara, Letoon, ancient ruins welcome you in each and every bay you drop anchor luxuriously relaxed while sipping one of our delicious Anatolian red wine or Lion’s Milk “Raki” with a Turkish variety of meze plates served by the yacht crew.
 
You will pass through nature and at the moment you will watch all the beauty of nature, the islands and the untouched bays.
 
In the thousands of year old historic cultural estate of Likia, after a swim, you will have your self-caught fish, cooked by your own chef and enjoy drinks with friends.
 
The Blue Cruise will make you forget about all the routines and the stress of daily life as you are surrounded in the nature’s beauty. After a night’s sleep in one bay, you will awaken and find yourself in another bay to explore.
 
On a Blue Voyage, while you lay out on deck at night, you can see all the stars as you hear and feel the lapping of the water against your boat. In the rush of city life it is possible to loose perspective on the value of health, rest, and relaxation. One a Blue Voyage, everything you hear, smell, taste, see, feel, and live can excite the mind and bring peace to the soul. Slipping into the dark water for a night swim after a hot day can be a treat in it’s own right. The peaceful quiet waters will cool you down for a restful and healthy night’s sleep.
 
More refreshing than any other holiday you have spent before, there is literally no better way to relax, to dream and feel what life is all about. The taste of unlimited freedom in the middle of turquoise waters to share with your loved ones and friendly people around you. 
 
The Turkish cuisine happens to be one of the best in the world, enjoy the delicious food and exotic flavors, enjoy a glass of Cappadocian wine or Turkish raki (Lion’s Milk) and let the unforgettable moments pass. Spend some time with your loved ones and show them you have a real taste for romance and fantasy on board a luxury gulet or motor yacht.
 
From the moment you step on board everything combines to make you feel pampered and special. There will be many opportunities for water sports, activities, and sightseeing. During the day you may cruise for a few hours and sail if the wind allows. Closer to lunch and dinner the anchor is dropped in a solitary bay or inlet, alongside a small village or a mooring of a small island. At every stop, there will be opportunities to swim, fish, snorkel, windsurf, sunbathe, take a trip ashore to see the sights, or read on the deck sun-beds. There will be lots of recreation and relaxation. Your friendly and attentive crew will consist of a captain, cook and a couple of seamen. Their job is to make sure that your are taken care of and that your needs are well met.

Imagine sunshine mixed in with the chrystal clear waters of the Mediterranean, colors of green, blue, turquoise and emerald, along with soft breezes, shaded beaches with pine trees, lonely bays, rugged coastlines, exotic islands, lush green olives, figs and lemon trees. Served generously with bright blue skies, romantic sunsets and enchanting starry nights…
 
How do you like it so far? Well, if you do, then how about a boat trip called Blue Voyage on a private luxury motor yacht or a wooden boat called Turkish Gulet.
 
The intimacy between Mediterranean Sea and the nature, the ancient civilizations of three thousand-years-old, classical arts and mythology creates exciting new adventures in your soul.
 
Take a Gulet Cruise Charter along the turquoise coast of Turkey, through the Greek Islands and enjoy total relaxation, beautiful food, and superb swimming - the perfect vacation.
 
Let us help you for a great journey of a lifetime experience…
 
 
Gulet: The Sailing Boat of Blue Voyage
     
The number of passengers a gulet carries depends on the boat’s size, although most of them accommodate between eight and twelve people. These vessels offer passengers separate accommodations and catering, one includes services and entertainment.
     
Modern gulets are comfortably equipped with all of the amenities of home and encourage an environment in which you are expected to do nothing but enjoy yourself. The closeness of the entourage on board promotes an atmosphere of friendship and sharing; relations between passengers and crew tend to be relaxed and casual. Unlike cruises on large ocean liners, on a gulet you can explore the secluded and often deserted bays and coves of the coastline. The small harbors and settlements offer an intimate view of coastal life, which large ships simply cannot.
    
In many ways, a gulet is like a full-service hotel where every room has a sea view and the scenery changes constantly.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
 
Which is the best season for Blue Cruise?
Between the months of June and September, it is the busiest times in Aegean and Mediterranean coasts. In July and August the days are longer and hotter. June offers much more beauty with its hot days and chilly nights. Especially in September the sea becomes considerably hot. May and October are the perfect months for sailing, tracking and fishing. April and November are still adequate for blue cruising. 
    
Which tour program is the best?
This question is very hard to answer. Most people who have been in a blue cruise repeat this vacation at least once in a year. So they changed their tour programs. If this will be your first vacation, the Marmaris-Fethiye-Marmaris tour is perfect for you. The Bodrum-Gökova-Bodrum tour is a kind of natural tour. The Antalya-Kaş-Antalya tour is perfect for people who like history.
 
Are the routes adequate for yachts?
The Blue Cruise area between Bodrum and Antalya is so adequate for a Blue Cruise because the sea is smooth; the yacht goes through the bays and near the coasts. These travels are not in the open sea like the other tours around the world. Turkish coast has thousands of small bays and islands.

Can we take a Blue Cruise in both Greece and Turkey?
Yes but the prices will be higher because of the harbor costs and the distance.
