What our clients say!
We loved our sailing experience with Boating Turkey. Condor is a beautiful boat, and was immaculately maintained and ready for us. Milta Marina is also an elegant marina to have as a home port. We spent a great week pulling into little bays and eating amazing meals. We love Turkish food. Thank you again for the great vacation. Our only mistake was not to book for longer. A week is a little short. Thank you again for everything. Sincerely,
Jan Schut from Maine, USA
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.

We initially found the Boating Turkey website just by trawling the internet but once Necmi has responded to our first enquiry, we never looked any further. He was so helpful in helping us choose a route, answering all our questions and providing advice. In fact, he gave us travel tips for Istanbul and arranged many of our transfers and recommended hotels etc. Pretty much whatever we asked for - a great add-on service. There were four couples on our Gulet (Albatross A) together with three crew members. Our cruise departed from Fethiye and ended at Marmaris. We pretty much left everything to the crew on the basis that they had done it a few times and would know what worked. We were not disappointed and had a wonderful holiday. The crew were very good at keeping a low profile on board but at the same time maintained excellent levels of service. The food is legendary and we looked forward to every meal - full board is a must. I would have no hesitation in recommending Boating Turkey to anyone.
I just wanted to say a huge big thank you to you and Boating Turkey for the fantastic service we receive from the first email to the time we disembarked from your boat.
Our trip on your gullet was an experience none of us will ever forget and the 'little extras' you provided so effortlessly are much appreciated.
The staff on board the gullet the fantastic - attentive, caring and always just waiting to answer our every need.
A special thanks to Memet Snr who provided fantastic and healthy meals out of the tiny and very hot kitchen, Memet Jnr for the all the cleaning and endless round of drinks of and of course our very capable captain - JJ - who took us through some tricky situations to say the least. The crew were pleasant and caring and just knew how to be there but not be intrusive.
I would highly recommend you and your company to anyone who intends hiring a gullet for a holiday and would happily give a testimonial to anyone who asks.
Many thanks for making my sons' 21st birthday holiday so special - as you know we thoroughly enjoyed the belly dancer you arranged at such short notice.
Kind regards and once again a huge big thanks
