What our clients say!
I would like to pass on my sincere thanks for arranging a really great boating holiday. We had never chartered a boat before and certainly never sailed in Turkey but you managed to simplify the whole process from beginning to end. From recommending the type of boat, arranging and talking through the contracts and in turn organizing the transfers to and from the boat, it was all executed perfectly. The boat itself (Rainbow) was outstanding, beautifully finished and very luxurious. The meals on the boat were also first class. Many thanks to you and your team it was gaily appreciated.
“We (three families with 4 teenage boys between us) have just enjoyed a wonderful time on a gulet and sailed Gocek – Kas – Kalkan - Gocek. The crew, captained by Jimmy were capable, attentive, professional and above all fun. We felt safe and well looked after. The food was delicious and our teenage boys had the most fantastic time. Nothing was too much trouble for any of Jimmy’s team - I would highly recommend Boating Turkey to anyone who wants to organise such a trip”.
Your Dalaman pick-up and drop off was ready to go and Gocek was a nice little town with easy shopping and free delivery, we stayed the previous night at Gorkem Apartments which were absolutely superb with a fabulous breakfast. It was easy to both depart from and return to the marina, we sailed to the East and made a number of stops including stern tie-ups and swing anchor and mooring evenings. 14 days is essential if you want to relax and spend a couple of nights in the towns like Kalkan and Kas where we found loads of good restaurants esp Zula and Ottoman in Kalkan.
As for the sailing we all had a great time with Beaufort 2-7, the hand over was very simple and thorough, the staff were very helpful and the yacht was ready to go several hours earlier than the 16.00 hrs so we sailed out that afternoon and had our first meal at a 'jetty restaurant' a couple of hours away.
The Turkish marine regulations for sanitation and mooring in many of the bays mean beautiful clean water to swim in straight off the boat morning noon and night. The neighbouring yacht at one place told us this was, (along with New Zealand) the best place to sail. As to yourself, you answered every email quickly, sorted out any problem that arose, and when we had a gear breakage it was fixed as quickly as possible. Many thanks and we hope to come again but it is a long journey from N.Z
Thank you for your help in finding us the gulet Remo in Göceck. We had a wonderful time with our two grand children. The owner and his two sons were very friendly, helpful and efficient. The food was amazing, the elder son is a great cook! They did everything to make our trip pleasant and were very patient with the two boys who were very lively (!) and not easy with their food.
If I had one regret it was that I am used to eating a lot of fruit and there was hardly ever any. Maybe I should have asked? My fault I guess. Also, it would be more convenient for those passengers who stay in a hotel before their cruise to be picked up and brought directly to the boat.,we/our taxi did not know where to go to find the boat and expected us to walk around the port carrying our heavy luggage in search of the gulet. Luckily the captain's son came to help us after a while! Would definetely book with you again, it was an ideal holiday with children, also thank you for recommending Efe Hotel in Göceck it was ideal with small children: well located and the pool was most appreciated(they never wanted to get out!).
