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
The boat was well maintained, Nizam was an excellent skipper and we also enjoyed his company -- A great fellow!The Apartment hotel was excellent. The woman who runs it was very nice to all of us and the place is clean and comfortable and priced right. We had a very nice vacation. Thank you for your help. We will try to do it again sometime with you.

On short notice we chartered a Jeanneau 40.3 ex Fethiye for 5 adults. The charter startup was efficient and friendly. For a 2006 build boat it was in surprisingly good condition. We sailed both sides of Fethiye, including up to Gocek and found numerous little bays to swim in and also pleasant bayside restaurents for dinner. We have no hesitation to recommend Boating Turkey.

We had a safe return after a very enjoyable week in Perla del Mare 2.
Just to give you a feed back of our week.
What was good:
-The Captain and the crew generally speaking.
-The food very well cooked.
-The bays chosen by the Captain, very nice and quiet.
-The outside of the Gulet.
What was not good:
-The interior of the boat did not have any renovation as you said, she was not in a good condition, quite a lot of things did not work properly.
-The lay out was different of the one that was sent, and the crew were 5 and not 6 as shown on the photographs sent to us.
We changed our destination because of weather conditions, and we ended up by staying around Gocek, but we enjoyed very very much the week.
Thank you for the organization and I hope we will go back to Turkey again.
