What our clients say!
Friends of ours had hired a Gullet with Boating Turkey and recommended them so our family of 5 ( 3 sons between 7 and 13) hired a Gullet for a week in early August and motored the Gocek Marmaris Gocek route. The Gullet, Remo was captained by its owner Celal and his two competent sons Cem and Erdem. Celal is a very seasoned mariner with more than 40 years at sea so we felt very safe in his Gullet. Although we did not hoist the sails we still experienced the sensation of being on a sailing boat in the open sea travelling to and from Marmaris and witnessed some spectacular sunrises.
The food was exceptional especially given the size of a galley kitchen and each day we ate very well. Celal chose idyllic locations for daily swimming and snorkelling and our boys had great fun kayaking, waterskiing and of course jumping off the boat! Some highlights on shore were visiting the ancient city of Kaunos, the rock tombs and seeing the endangered loggerhead turtles.
Boating Turkey were very easy to communicate with and quick to respond. We hope to revisit the Turkish coast and would not hesitate using Boating Turkey again.

Thank you for all your help in planning our gulet trip. You were so patient with all my questions and everything you said was accurate. We had a wonderful trip on La Finale -- a real dream come true. It is a beautiful boat and well maintained. The food was excellent, as was the service. The places we visited were beautiful. Captain Kansu inspired confidence and was very attentive to our specific interests. In addition, he was a personable companion whom we enjoyed very much. I want to come back next year!
The most satisfying thing about booking through you was that everything we had hoped would happen, did. Transfers, food orders, the boat, cousel on where to explore, the whole package worked beautifully. Turkey itself was beautiful, friendly people and lovely food, plus the mix of ancient and contemporary both amazed and intrigued myself and my family. Our only issue was that 1 week was not enough next year, were booking for two!
Thank you to BoatingTurkey.net and Necmi for creating an amazing trip for our group of 33. Necmi coordinated logistics for two gulets and a 50 foot monohull and truly jumped through hoops to deliver a high quality, fuss-free once-in-a-lifetime trip.
The gulets were beautiful, the crew was endearing and accommodating and the meals were sensational. To coordinate such a large group and have not have to worry about the logistics truly shows how well-connected and seasoned Necmi is. We enthusiastically recommend that anyone considering a trip along the Turkish coast check in with Necmi first. He's the most patient, responsive and trustworthy expert. As he walked down the dock, all the captains tipped their hats to him. We too tip our hat to him.
Thank you Necmi for everything!
