All of us were excited for this vacation beforehand but we didn't anticipate just how perfect it would be. The food was so delicious, the crew was so attentive, the water was so blue. Necmi and the entire staff at Boating Turkey were incredibly helpful in providing me and my friends the best vacation any of us had ever been on and I highly recommend using Boating Turkey for a vacation of a lifetime.
Fabulous trip. Gocek and the surrounding islands is a wonderful place to sail - spectacular scenery, great anchorages and restaurants, very friendly people. The boat was in first rate condition and whole trip went without a hitch. Couldn't recommend it more highly.
I spent a week boating with Boating Turkey and I can say it was a wonderful experience. The Gullet is a wonderful way to travel and relax. The boat is wide, comfortable and has all the amenities you would want. The Captain and First Mate were wonderful and accommodating, taking us wherever we wanted. The most surprising thing, however, was the food. It was fantastic. There was plenty of it, good diversity in the dishes and ever so tasty. Anyone wanting a relaxing, beautiful, and memorable experience should consider taking a Gullet from Boating Turkey and just let the magic happen.
Dear Necmi and Rusen,
Thank you again for your assistance in planning our Turkish gulet trip. I highly recommend Boating Turkey for anyone considering a gulet charter trip in Turkey. When I first began reaching out to brokers, I was connected to Eastern European agencies who could not answer very basic questions about the boats or the itineraries. When I found Boating Turkey, and began to work with Necmi, I was delighted to learn that the brokerage is based in Bodrum. They are intimately involved with the local gulet business, and were extremely helpful in planning our trip. Necmi was able to provide several gulet options for our group of 16. Once we decided on the Ametist A, Necmi and Rusen were always quick to respond and helpful in making changes and additions per our needs.
Upon our arrival in Bodrum, Rusen was on the boat to greet us. He stayed for a couple of hours to make sure that everything was ready prior to our departure. We made last minute changes to catering and water toys for the week, and Rusen was happy to help with the logistics. He seemed genuinely reluctant to leave until he was assured the crew was ready to leave and we had everything we needed.
As for the boat and crew, we could not have been happier. Captain Recep was well attuned to our wishes, and constantly found beautiful, secluded and protected coves for swimming, hiking ashore, and relaxing in the peaceful surroundings. We marveled at his ability to park a beamy 27 foot boat in a 25 foot wide space at the dock. Chef Süleyman earned a round of applause at every meal. It was unreal how he could produce such varied and plentiful meals from such a small space. Basar, Ismail, and Olgun were excellent deck hands who quickly learned our likes and thoughtfully attended to all of our needs. The week would not have been the same without such an outstanding crew.
Thank you again to Necmi and Rusen for helping us put together a truly wonderful vacation. We cant wait to get back!
