Day 1: Fethiye
Boarding starts at 3.30 pm at Fethiye Marina. While you settle in, dinner will be served on the yacht and we will stay overnight on board in Fethiye Marina. Fethiye, which was known as Telmessos in the ancient times, was the most important city situated on Lykia's western border with Karia. It is believed that the city's name came from Apollon's son Telmessos. The city joined the Ottoman in 1924. The name changed many times over the years and was eventually named Fethiye in 1914 after the first Turkish AirForce Officer who was called Fethi Bey, crashed his plane and died here while on duty. In the south of the town you will see many famous tombs and graves survived from the Antique Era and one of the most famous and most beautiful stone tombs is the tomb of King Amyntas. The ruins of a theatre recovered during the excavation carried out by the museum recently is in the city centre.

While you are enjoying the breakfast, we will inform you about the cruise programme and safety procedures of the yacht. We will set sail for Oludeniz.

Here you will have the chance to walk around Kas, which was an old Greek Town, and to experience nightlife in Kas.

Kas is a rich land with the surrounding cities that belong to the Antique period and with other historical values.

What our clients say!

Mavi yolculuğumuzdan çok memnun kaldık. Yemeklerden lezzetli ve çeşitliydi. Tekne çok güzel ve temizdi. Gezdiğimiz koylar temiz, sakin ve bize ait gibiydi. Kaptanın her yeri karış karış biliyor olması gideceğimiz koylarda hayal kırıklığına uğramayacağımızın garantisiydi. Uyumlu ve güleryüzlü ekipten yolculuk boyunca memnunduk ve sorun yaşamadık. Popüler mavi tur rotaları haricinde berrak denizde yüzmek ve sakin koylarda geceleyip sessizliği dinleyerek yıldızları izlemek isteyenler Bozburun rotasını tercih etmeliler. Dimitri, Hurmalı, Serçe, Bozukkale ve Kadırga koyları harikaydı. Sığ limanda denize girmeyi unutmayın.

Dear Necmi,
We were very happy with our sailing experience and the service you have provided. It was all professionally handled by your company and we would recommend your charter company anytime. We loved Turkey and its people. Will return.

Thank you very much for your mail of September 29. I planned to send you a mail as well to say how much we enjoyed our holidays. The boat was great, so was the wheather, but we especially really admired Marina and Simon, what a great couple and what great service they provided.

Thanks very much for booking this great ship and arranging all other facilities around our stay in Turkey.

We had a really awesome time sailing again in Turkey and will definitely be back next year!
The yacht my brother hired was very impressive – spacious, easy to sail and everything was in good working order. It was neat, very clean and the linen smelt divine! The hand-over was quick and effortless – also on return to port – all was handled very professionally. Your staff are friendly and helpful. It was a nice touch to have the mobile phone in case of emergency (which fortunately we never had to use).
Just a few small things which may further improve guests experience: -
It would have been great to have some dish sponges/ washing up cloths for washing dishes and also washing up liquid. As most of your guests come from other countries, these kind of groceries items are such a waste to purchase and not usually included in our food shop.
The pillows were quite uncomfortable – very hard. I only became use to it towards the end of the trip. ‘Softer’ feather-down type or similar would be more suitable – we had these on the yacht we hired last year from a different charter company.
Perhaps also to include swimming towels – even as an extra option to guests to pre-order/ pay for and have on the yacht on arrival.

Thank you once again for a seamless arrival and departure – and a wonderful in between. Your country is beautiful!
Warm Regards
