We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Some of us had been on a gulet before as you know but for my brother and his wife it was their first time.
They like us had a great time and even though my sister in law cannot swim, the crew were very kind and took her ashore so she could wade and bathe in the shallow waters every time we moored up in a bay. Your service was first class from the moment Deborah started dealing with you to them moment we sadly said goodbye. The crew, JJ, Abdullah and Mamet were excellent hosts and would not let us do a thing. Their little surprises for my birthday were brilliant and the food was fantastic and the boat very comfortable. I am sure that we will all be back, with more family and when we do we will be back in touch with you to book again.
Me and my family were going to take a Windstar cruise in early July this year. One of the ports of call was Bodrum. Reading about the place and its tourist attractions, we decided to rent a gullet for the day. I am sure now that our decision couldn't be better. It was a most relaxing trip, in a typical boat, huge and comfortable, swimming in clear waters with no hurry at all. The crew members were very kind and helpful, and they cook wonderful meals. Everything was really well organized. Since I had arranged the gullet rental through an Internet site, having paid for their services in advance, I knew I was taking my chances. Specially because we would just have some hours in Bodrum, and it would be hard to rearrange the rental on the spot. I had no need to worry, the boat was waiting for us, corresponding in every detail to what they proposed us in their e-mail. We will certainly use Boating Turkey services again if we are fortunate enough to visit this wonderful Turkish beach once more in the future.

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.

I would like to thank you for organising our boating trip for our party of 8 â we joined our boat for the last week of June 2013 in Fethyie and travelled to Marmaris although we spent most of the time in the Gocek Bay area. The waters were flat and calm, so much so, it is as if you are on a lake!
The food prepared by our cook was delicious and plentiful â we had our wedding anniversary and a birthday on board and the staff made it special by arranging a cake! Our boat was a 21 metre gulet with 4 cabins which was extremely comfortable, each had own shower ensuite. Lovely front and back deck to laze the day away. Our 3 staff were brilliant and attentive, with Tegood always at the ready to refill our glass!
Nemci also arranged our transport from airports as well as the long trip from Bodrum to Fethyie, all went off without a hitch.
All in al,l a lovely relaxing holiday, beautiful scenery and sparkling blue waters! Would have no hesitation in recommending Necmi/Boating Turkey services.
