We would like to thank you for the most amazing week on board the Jasmin 1.
We had the most wonderful relaxed and stress free family holiday ever. The sea was warm and so beautiful and we spend many happy hours swimming and snorkelling.
The boat was beautiful and the crew was so accommodating and friendly, always striving to make us happy. Our captain always docked in the best spots in the most beautiful little bays and our chef put together some wonderful meals, including some lovely desserts. We were even spoilt with baked cake with afternoon tea. Our captain did the barbecuing or braaing as we know it in South Africa. He was an absolute champ at cooking on the open fire on the deck. Burak, the third crew member assisted in all areas. He was an absolute character and kept my family entertained. His new name being 007.
Thank you to the entire crew for making our boating week so special. A holiday that my family will remember with very special memories for a very long time.Turkey is a very special place to visit. We loved exploring the coast on the boat. Bodrum was absolutely charming and our second visit to Istanbul was as amazing as our first. The people of Turkey are kind, giving, friendly and honourable. My family will definitely return to Turkey.
Take care and greetings to you all.

We had a good cruise from Bodrum to Marmaris during early September of 2013.
A chef is always important in situations like these and Hassan certainly rose to the occasion, delivering a range of tasty, nutritious and healthy meals doing more than justice to the Turkish cuisine under difficult conditions.
The boat hands Arkhan and Aktihm were extremely diligent, keeping the boat spotless at all times. Aktihm was particularly pleasant with an omnipresent mischievous smile!
Duran, the skipper, performed his task well, demonstrating good seamanship at all times and proving to be an expert at preparing just about anything on the bow mounted barbeque. He chose a sensible route, selecting good overnight stops in beautiful coves, passages and charming villages. Communicating our route, advice and suggestions about what to do ashore and engagement generally was somewhat limited.
Our diverse group from South Africa and New Zealand got on really well, truly enjoying the on board hospitality.
We were somewhat disappointed that the boat was not fully equipped to sail rather than motor all the time. An on board wind surfer and snorkelling gear would have been welcome as well.
Besides that, we had a great time. Boating Turkey were flexible regarding our needs arriving and departing and we will use them again.

We would like to give you some feedback on our experience on our recent boating holiday in Turkey.
We were very impressed with the service starting with the transfer from the airport to Skopea Marina. On arrival we were welcomed by very efficient and professional staff who briefed us under the shade of the trees. Inge was especially helpful giving us a lot of advice and information on the sailing area and conditions. We also found the magazine ‘The Bay Express’ very informative and we referred to it on a daily basis.
Our boat ‘Opal’ was well equipped and spotlessly clean with fresh new linen and towels. Everything on board was well maintained and operational.
We thoroughly enjoyed sailing in Turkey. We loved the friendly people, wonderful food, beautiful scenery and clear turquoise water. We were also very impressed by the concern for the ecology.
We will definitely be back to explore more of your beautiful coastline.
