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.

Day 2: Oludeniz - Soguksu - Gemiler Island
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.

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

What our clients say!

This was our first time booking through Boating Turkey. Necmi was extremely helpful, selecting the right boat for us and dealing with all of our needs. The service provided by Boating Turkey is the most efficient and professional I have experienced and I would highly recommend them. Our boat was immaculate when we arrived and we returned it in the same condition. We have sailed in Turkey six times now and the scenery is breath taking. If you are undecided about this holiday, believe me .. you will not regret it.’

Dear Necmi,

We had excellent holidays with Boating Turkey and everything was above expectations. We where particulary happy with the boat where we felt like at home from the very begining. The capitan and the crew made everything possible for our confort and the route we did was really beautiful. We also enjoyed the home made turkish food that had excelent quality.

All together an amazing experience that we would like to repeat soon.

Thanks also for delivering my lost suitcase to the boat in Bodrum.

I would just like to thank Necmi Artar and all at Boating Turkey for their honesty and integrity. We chartered and paid for our yacht in May of this year but unfortunately at the last minute, due to illness, we were unable to take our holiday. We emailed Boating Turkey and told them and also that we understood that no refund could be paid as we cancelled just two weeks before the charter date. However, Boating Turkey managed to late charter the yacht that we had originally chartered for part of the charter term and immediately emailed me to say that there would be a refund sent to the value of the late charter fee within a couple of weeks, which I duly received. They did not have to do this (as we would never have known) and I would again thank them for their honesty and also for all their prior help with arranging the holiday in the first instance. We will certainly be chartering with them in 2015!

I like to thank you for your service regarding our stay in Turkey 28,July to 11.August 2007
Everything went as planned.
The pickup at the airport, the apartments you booked for us and the 50 foot Bavaria , everything was great. Your staff in Göcek gave us an excellent service. This was the first time we rented a boat in the Mediterranean and our first visit to Turkey. These two weeks we sailed in Turkeys waters were wonderful. Going to sleep under the star bright sky every evening, was a joy. If any one is looking for good service, good boats, talk with Boating Turkey.
