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.

Many thanks Necmi for organising our recent holiday on gulet Albatros A. You handled everything most efficiently, from our initial enquiry through to arranging our meals and ordering the drinks we wanted. The gulet was in as-new condition, and was kept spotlessly clean by our crew. Our captain took us to wonderful bays and islands. The food prepared by our chef was plentiful, varied and delicious. We miss it. All the crew were attentive, obliging and friendly. Our seaman APO helped us with our Turkish and was always available to take us to shore whenever we wanted. We have already recommended your company to some of our friends, and would have no hesitation recommending you to any prospective customers. We hope to see you again on a future holiday in your wonderful part of the world.

I just wanted to express my satisfaction concerning the 2 weks spent on-board OPAL. Next time I will ask you for Dufour 455... Your companies service is super.
Dear Necmi, Dear Necmi
From the moment we made our first tentative enquiry until we arrived back at the airport at the end of our vacation we could not have wished to have received a better level of service than that provided by Boating Turkey. The booking and pre-trip procedures were made very straightforward for us, leading us to arrive at Dalaman airport with great confidence. Our gulet, Dea Delmare was simply stunning and we had a crew that were attentive whenever we needed anything and invisible when we were enjoying our charter. The food provided was unbelievably good, none of us could believe the quantity and variety of dishes that kept appearing from such a small place. The weather was fantastic and, set against such a beautiful backdrop, combined to create a memorable holiday. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary with our children and their partners and the crew threw a surprise party for us which, amazingly, included tendering in to our private bay a DJ with all of his equipment. If anybody is looking for that really special vacation, look no further than a call to Necmi at Boating Turkey.
I would certainly use Boating Turkey again and have already recommended you to a number of people.
Many thanks once again
