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.

What our clients say!

Hi Necmi,

We had the most stunning week on board SUNWORLD VI in September 2013. Everything from the accommodation/cabins, outdoor eating and lounging areas, food (thank you Mustafa), captain and crew were perfect.

I would definitely recommend Boating Turkey to our friends and look forward to doing another gulet cruise in the future.

Thanks to Boating Turkey, we just completed a great one week trip out of Gocek. At very short notice, Boating Turkey found us the boat we were looking for at competitive prices. They gave very timely and accurate responses to the specific questions we had. We will use the services of Boating Turkey next year without hesitation and would highly recommend Boating Turkey to other sailing enthusiasts.

Dear Necmi, Rusen and Boating Turkey

We would like to thank you for the most amazing week on board the Jasmin 1.

We had the most wonderful relaxed and stress free family holiday ever. The sea was warm and so beautiful and we spend many happy hours swimming and snorkelling.

The boat was beautiful and the crew was so accommodating and friendly, always striving to make us happy. Our captain always docked in the best spots in the most beautiful little bays and our chef put together some wonderful meals, including some lovely desserts. We were even spoilt with baked cake with afternoon tea. Our captain did the barbecuing or braaing as we know it in South Africa. He was an absolute champ at cooking on the open fire on the deck. Burak, the third crew member assisted in all areas. He was an absolute character and kept my family entertained. His new name being 007.

Thank you to the entire crew for making our boating week so special. A holiday that my family will remember with very special memories for a very long time.Turkey is a very special place to visit. We loved exploring the coast on the boat. Bodrum was absolutely charming and our second visit to Istanbul was as amazing as our first. The people of Turkey are kind, giving, friendly and honourable. My family will definitely return to Turkey.

Take care and greetings to you all.
