Our charter from was 24/5 until 7/6 2014 from Marmaris for two weeks. We were group of ten, from Australia and New Zealand. I started to communicate with Necmi from Boating Turkey some months before the charter and found him to be most helpful from the start. Organising a trip like this for a group is disconcerting to say the least but Necmi helped to make it much easier by responding immediately to any questions I had. His helpful suggestions including wonderful Turkish wines were most welcome.
Our charter was onboard the Azra Deniz a 26 meter gulet complete with a crew of 3. She was not a five star but very comfortable in every way. The crew were sensational, the skipper, the chef and our ever smiling deckhand were always helpful and our itinerary included some of the wonderful villages, coves and historic sites of Turquoise Coast. We also has a visit to Simi in Greece which we all enjoyed. The weather was very kind to us, so there was plenty of swimming, canoeing and sunbathing, lots of time for relaxation as well. Each night we would decide on where we would go the next day and what we would do but most of the time we followed our skippers suggestions, he really ensured we has quite diverse experiences both in scenery and activities.
Our chef constantly prepared the most amazing meals, to good in fact as the waistlines slowly expanded! We were just amazed at his skills.
Our group had the most wonderful holiday, our crew certainly made a major contribution to this. The coast of Turkey is exquisite and its people are so warm and friendly and the food and wine superb.
Necmi came to meet us when we arrived on the boat in Marmaris and we appreciated that he did. He drove down from Bodrum. He really knows his bussiness and that is so important when you are organising travel plans from so far away.
Thank you so much for your help Necmi.
We all had an amazing time one one will remember for a long time to come.

Mavi yolculuğumuzdan çok memnun kaldık. Yemeklerden lezzetli ve çeşitliydi. Tekne çok güzel ve temizdi. Gezdiğimiz koylar temiz, sakin ve bize ait gibiydi. Kaptanın her yeri karış karış biliyor olması gideceğimiz koylarda hayal kırıklığına uğramayacağımızın garantisiydi. Uyumlu ve güleryüzlü ekipten yolculuk boyunca memnunduk ve sorun yaşamadık. Popüler mavi tur rotaları haricinde berrak denizde yüzmek ve sakin koylarda geceleyip sessizliği dinleyerek yıldızları izlemek isteyenler Bozburun rotasını tercih etmeliler. Dimitri, Hurmalı, Serçe, Bozukkale ve Kadırga koyları harikaydı. Sığ limanda denize girmeyi unutmayın.
Teşekkürler Boating Turkey
We greatly enjoined the sailing and loved our skipper - Nizam. He is very good and very pleasant. Everything worked out perfectly - the boat, the routes, the sea, the weather, and above all - the service of your company. What else can I say, I would love to repeat the experience
