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.

Dear Boating Turkey Team
In one word it was superb, very good product, professional service, very talented skipper who makes safety a priority so his passengers can relax by knowing they are being very well taken care of. I particularly appreciated your advice at the begining of our contact, and especially the speed with which you responded to my questions and concerns. Thank you, I will certainly be in touch with you for next sail away.

I am writing to thank you most warmly for the superb holiday Jonathan and his guests had on the Richmond. I have heard from them that the food was delicious and the service impeccable. I understand that the captain and his crew were highly professional and at all times the party felt they were in complete safety and in competent hands. The crew was also friendly and good company. Everybody enjoyed sailing along such an extraordinarily beautiful coastline. The week was clearly an outstanding success. I am most grateful to you.
We were dellighted with the week sailing on this wonderful gulet. The staff , Saleh, Oechler and Willy were very helpful, friendly and professional. The boat was clean, the food turkish and good. Although it was already mid October we had most of the time wonderful weather. We did enjoy the week on the boat. Goekova bay is very beautiful. We might even return.
