What our clients say!
We really loved sailing in Turkey and everything was very professional. The boat was excellent and in fine conditions and the skipper was technically, as far as we can evaluate, very good. In the first day we change the itinerary that was initially (Marmaris Bodrum) agreed with no problem and we did a bigger course and went to marvellous places and paradisiacal bays. We were so lucky that we even saw two Dolphins and one sperm-whale!!
We had a fantastic holiday, also thanks to the impeccible service of Boating Turkey and the charter company. All promises were kept so we could really enjoy this beautiful sailing region.
Salute to Capitan Yavuz Kose and Cook Serkan Babayigit (nicknamed Captain Cook by our group).
Along with Boating Turkey they were responsible for one of the most enjoyable weeks we as a family with our in law children have had in our lives.
This was a dream come true to us as we have been dreaming about this cruise for 6 years as we did plan a similar trip 6 years ago, but had to abandon it as 2 of the couples pulled out. My first contact with Boating Turkey for this trip was already in May last year and I had a very responsive feedback from Necmi on every e-mail that I have sent to him. He was very helpful in assisting us in all the arrangements.
Due to a limited budget we chartered the smallest boat that we could get hold of, but we were pleasantly surprised with the spaciousness of the interior of the boat. The two smaller cabins were a bit uncomfortable but fine for the two younger couples in our group. We fortunately experienced excellent weather and could therefore spend all the time on the deck. Gathering as a family on the foredeck while cruising was a real family binding experience.
Our captain and chef were excellent hosts as they were always there but never intruding into our privacy despite the limited circulation space. Yavuz gave us a feeling of having everything under control at all times even during a very rough spot on the open sea when we were cruising against a very strong wind. Compliments to our wonderful chef Serkan who had the ability to prepare the most wonderful meals in his small kitchen. Lunch and dinner was always a pleasant surprise with the fresh fish speared by then at night something very special.
Even to us as South Africans with a very weak currency the trip was very affordable and goes highly recommended. It was an unforgettable week on the Turkish coast.

From our first moment on board when we were shown around the bedrooms, bathrooms, dining area and so on I knew I would be having a once in a lifetime experience. The polished wood, the royal blue shade cloths and sunbathing areas all added to the feeling of luxury during our two weeks saling the stunning turkish waters and visiting the beautiful bays and sea side villages and ports along the coast. Every little wish of ours was immediately considered and acted upon by the crew and the Captain made sure every single day of a new view and always the best place to moor to please us. This included the use of the air conditioning at night which in late August was absolutely necessary and something we had been worrying about, though without any fuss our nights were as cool as we wanted by having the aircon on, thanks for that! The food was excellent, never boring, always very delicious and always served with grace and professionalism by the crew. The rooms were kept spotlessly clean, the whole boat for that matter washed down and scrubbed regularly and if there was the smallest problem in a bathroom for example it was dealt with immediately. We all felt that the two weeks was very good value for money and I would not hesitate to recommend your company to all of my friends.
Best regards to you all,
