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.

Hello Rusen and Necmi
A big thank you to both of you who arranged our recent Gulet trip from Marmaris.
Your company, Boating Turkey kept us well informed and were very prompt and attentive in responding to our requests,
the whole booking process was made easier because of this.
Thanks for arranging the S.U.P. with such short notice, it was great fun especially behind the Joker.
The trip was simply amazing and one that will be cherished for a long time as we all have fond memories of it.
The M/S Ametist A was a great boat that catered ideally for all our needs; the boat was in good condition, clean,
and the cabins were very neat and tidy, plenty of deck area for socializing.
Captain Recep and his crew - Ismail, Olgun, Sezgin and Suleyman were all very obliging and attentive ensuring all our needs
were catered for and they were all great fun to be with.
We explored the beautiful Datca coastline along with the Greek Islands of Simi and Rhodes visiting beautiful coves to swim
during the day and great anchorages for our cocktails and overnight stays.
Captain Recap's ensured that our safety was paramount at all times, his skills behind the helm were absolutely outstanding as
he manoeuvred the boat into very tight docks without a problem and with the help of his experienced crew.
Every meal on board was delicious thanks to Chef Suleyman's great culinary skills, how he was able to produce quality, tasty meals from the small galley was amazing.
From breakfast to lunch to afternoon tea and then dinner, he ensured that we all were well catered for with plenty of food to go around.
Thanks again for all your assistance with this wonderful Gulet trip which far exceeded all our expectations, we all look forward to one day sailing again with Boating Turkey.
We are very pleased with the services of Boating Turkey - from the planning stage in early spring, the booking process and all the arrangement around the cruise itself. Boating Turkey's agents generally and Mr Necmi Artar in particular were attentive and service-minded. In the vast ocean of the many gulet charter agencies on the internet, we found Boating Turkey to offer a comprehensive and wide range of gulets and to be reliable and trustworty. It is rare not to have anything to complain about, but on this occasion our high expectations have been met in every way. The one week cruise on M/S Kobra in the Gökova Bay was magical and we were very well looked after by Captain Hamza and his crew. We would love to do this again.
