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. Our yacht will be anchored at Soguksu Bay for lunch and swim. The next stop will be Gemiler Island. It is recommended to have an early evening walk on Gemiler Island and pay a visit to the Church of St. Nicholas. Dinner and overnight stay will be at Gemiler Strait.

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!

"We (three families with 4 teenage boys between us) have just enjoyed a wonderful time on a gulet and sailed Gocek - Kas - Kalkan - Gocek. The crew, captained by Jimmy were capable, attentive, professional and above all fun. We felt safe and well looked after. The food was delicious and our teenage boys had the most fantastic time. Nothing was too much trouble for any of Jimmy's team - I would highly recommend Boating Turkey to anyone who wants to organise such a trip".

We found Boating Turkey professional and the service to be of a very high standard. We were particularly impressed by the thoroughness of the technical briefing and the overall quality and cleanliness of the yacht. It was excellent value for money.

We would not hesitate to hire from you again.

Hello Necmi,

The vacaction was a total success. Everything happened so smoothly and all 15 crew members returned home with a big smile on their face.
We made a major mistake, we should have booked for 2 weeks instead of one because no one really wanted to leave the boat on the last day.
I would like to thank you for the perfect zero-error service you provided and I would highly recommend Boating Turkey to everyone I know.

Dear Necmi,

Many thanks to Necmi for assisting throughout the booking process. It was an excellent week of sailing going from Gocek and spending most of the week in the surrounding area. The boat was in great condition and I could tell that it had been well looked after. The handover with the charter company, Portway Yacht Charters was done very well and they accommodated for our late arrival ensuring we would be able to get onto the boat to sleep that night. I highly recommend booking through Boating Turkey and will certainly be using them again in 2016.
