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.

Thanks for your all help.We enjoyed our holiday very much. Here is a short overview of our trip:)
Boating Turkey's services were without fault. Everything promised was delivered and your responses to our various questions were prompt and accurate. I can say without a moments hesitation that we had a great experience in Turkey. The turkish coast is truly amazing and the boat and the various marina facilities were perfect. The turkish people at the various ports visited were friendly and very helpful. Our only complaint is the food is way too delicious and we couldn't stop eating.
Thank you Necmi for all your assistance in creating this great excursion.

We commenced discussions with Necmi from Boating Turkey some 9 months before our holiday in Turkey and found him to be extremely helpful in planning our yacht charter in terms of selecting the type of yacht, planning the itinerary and general information on holidaying in Turkey. We selected a luxury Gulet Sagapo from Bodrum and the experience exceeded all our expectations. From the moment we boarded the Captain and crew went out of their way to ensure we had an experience we would never forget. I can certainly recommend Boating Turkey and will use them again if ever planning a boating holiday in Turkey .
