A yacht charter itinerary from Gocek to Gocek via Kas offers you a sample of an amazing yachting vacation. Sailing from Gocek south you will witness Turkey's most beautiful cruising grounds. This is a classic one-week itinerary for a family boat holiday or a journey with friends. This itinerary can be tailor-made according to your preferences.
Boarding a yacht in Gocek, set sail from this busy port and head for the quietude of the Gocek Islands. Find a nice spot for the night and drop anchor. Swim in warm waters, sunbathe on forward deck, or sit with the captain and have him roll out the charts and explain the itinerary over coffee. Dinner on board at anchor under the starlit sky.
Sail with your motor yacht or a gulet, or perhaps a catamaran for the south-east side of the Gulf of Fethiye and explore the rocky coastline with snorkel and flippers. After lunch, move on to Turunc Pinari and take a walk ashore at Osman’s Place. Check out tonight’s menus and dine ashore if it takes your fancy. Overnight in this idyllic bay. Enjoy the peaceful and silent atmosphere with your charter yacht in Turkey.
Sail to the Gemiler island for a chance to explore the extensive ruins of a Byzantine settlement. The views from the top of the island are breathtaking. Return to the yacht for lunch and an afternoon snooze. Spend the night in Bestas Limani, where there is a restaurant ashore.
The walk to Kayakoy is best taken from Bestas Limani, so if you are keen to see the deserted Greek village on the hill above, now is your chance. If not, then sit back, relax and enjoy the cruise on a yacht down the Turkish coast and into the port of Kalkan. Explore Kalkan by night and dine ashore in one of the hillside restaurants. Overnight at anchor off Kalkan is a charming experience.
If you wish to photograph Kalkan by day, this is the morning for doing just that. Take an overland tour to the ruins of three ancient sites: Xanthos, Patara and Letoon. Best done in the company of a guide, but you can “wing it” with a guide book, if you prefer. Return to your yacht in Kas Harbour and after freshening up – head off into Kas town to dine, Shop, explore and dance the night away if you wish! Overnight in Kas Harbour or nearby. By the way, Kas is one of the most romantic Mediterranean ports. You will enjoy its pictureque hills with luxury villas and lush greenery. This is a very nice yacht charter destination to visit.
The cruise in Turkey slowly comes to an end. However, you still have time to enjoy this beautiful yachting journey. Make the return journey up past the Seven Capes, pulling in to explore Butterfly Valley if the weather co-operates! If not, proceed to Karacaoren and find a nice spot to anchor for the night. There is a quaint restaurant ashore, but you may prefer to dine on board. Overnight at anchor in Karacaoren.
Cross the Gulf of Fethiye, stopping of at Domuz island or the Yassica islands en route. By evening, your yacht will be moored on the town quay, so there will be plenty of opportunity to explore Gocek and buy some typically Turkish mementos before dinner at a local restaurant. Overnight in Gocek.
Disembark after breakfast.
We hope you've enjoyed a yachting holiday in Turkey. There are still so many different places to explore during the Blue Cruise vacation. Norther of Gocek there are Marmaris, Hisaronu Gulf, Datca, Bodrum, Ephesus. We hope you'll visit them too.
