We spent a lot of time going through travel brochures and surfing the
internet in researching our Turkish boating holiday.
After lots of false starts with other boating brokers who did not respond
speedily or who only answered one or two of our questions, we found the
Boating Turkey website and never looked back. The site was very clearly
laid out with an extensive list of available boats along with quality
photos. Our questions around boats and suggested itineraries were responded
to quickly and effectively, and we always felt that we were getting
considered opinions and advice rather than rushed and incomplete responses.
The result: The boat and her crew were outstanding - a perfect match to our
requirements and exactly as promised by the staff who helped us at Boating
Turkey. Their staff could not have been more courteous and helpful, both in
the booking process, and helping with some extra supplies on the day of
departure and getting our family to the boat quickly and efficiently whilst
making sure everything was in order with the captain and boat before they
waved us off.
We recommend their services with confidence and pass on our thanks for
helping with a great holiday experience.

We had an absolutely fabulous time on Pulp and Paper (Beneteau Oceanis 50)! Thank you very much for your help with everything and for recommending the boat. Despite being 5 years old, all the instruments, fittings, sail and rigging were in very good working order. We didn't have any problems at all in the 2 weeks we were on it. Despite its size, the four of us were able to sail, berth and moor the boat very easily.
Checking in was also a pleasure. The boat was ready for early check-in, as requested, so thank you for that too. Cigdem was ready and waiting for us at the boat to do the check-in paperwork, and it was fast and hassle-free. (In charters we've been on before we had to wait in charter offices for more than one hour to sort out paperwork etc. After being on a 20+ hour flight from Australia, the last thing we wanted was to stand in a hot, crowded office to do paperwork!)
So thank you again. We love sailing and cruising in Turkey. The coast is very well set up for sailing, people are friendly and welcoming and there are so many interesting places to see and things to do. We will definitely go back to see more!

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.
