Day 1: MARMARIS
Boarding starts at 15:30 from Marmaris Harbour. Guests who arrive early may leave their luggage at the Boating Turkey Office. On the first day, our boat will be anchored in Marmaris Harbour for dinner and overnight stay. Marmaris, which was built upon the antique Caria city; Physkos, has been under the rule of many different civilizations. The most valuable work of art that you can see today is Marmaris Castle dating back to 1577. There is also a mosque and an 8-room caravansary covered with arches from the Ottoman Period. The ruins of the Antique times lie on Asar Hill; a small, low hill located on the northern side of the city. Being one of the best-known touristic places of Turkey, Marmaris has also a large marina.

Day 2: SERCE - BOZUKKALE (LORYMA)
After breakfast, you will be informed about the cruise itinerary and then we will set sail for Serce Bay .It is the bay where you can see the Byzantine shipwreck from the 11th century, which is exhibited in Bodrum Museum. We will anchor at Bozukkale for the overnight stay. In the ancient city of Bozukkale (Loryma), there is a castle which stretches out in a rectangle with its city walls and 9 towers. The name Bozukkale means 'crooked castle' and might be associated with the fact that one side of the castle is missing. Because of its geographical situation and the narrow port entrance, the port was also used by the Greek naval forces during the Peloponnese Sea Battle. Karor, the Commander of Athens gathered all his ships here before the Cnidus War in 395 B.C., and Demetrius; the son of Antigonos used this port for preparations before attacking Rhodes in 305 B.C.

Day 3: DATCA
After breakfast we will sail and anchor at Datca. We will get the basic needs of the boat such as food, beverages etc. from this port. Datca was founded by the Dorians who came from Aegean Sea to the southern coast of Ionia in the 7th century B.C. The island has no humidity at all and has fresh air with plenty of oxygen. The historian Strabon was right when he remarked of Datca's weather: "God would send his beloved servants to Datca to live longer". According to a myth, while the Spanish pirates were passing by the coast of Datca, they disembarked people with Hansen's disease in Sariliman Bay and these abandoned people recovered from their disease with the help of the clean weather of Datca. You can explore Datca by yourself or join the optional Cnidus tour. For dinner and overnight stay, we will anchor in Datca or at a nearby bay.

Day 4: AKTUR - BENCIK
After breakfast, we will cruise to Aktur Bay. Then our first stop will be Bencik Bay; which has a very narrow entrance but a unique view once you get inside. Bencik is located at the narrowest part of the peninsula that divides Hisaronu Gulf from Gokova Gulf but it is located at Hisaronu side. In 550s B.C., the Cnidus people wanted to dig a tunnel in the narrowest land piece of the peninsula between the Hisaronu Gulf and the Gokova Gulf as a defence line against the Persians. They would make two peninsulas one island and the defence easier in that way. They started with great diligence and put forth a lot of effort; however, in the end they could not manage and the city was conquered by the Persians. Dinner and overnight stay will be in Bencik Bay.

Day 5: ORHANIYE - SELIMIYE
Today, we will be sailing into the Hisaronu Gulf. For lunch we will dock in Orhaniye. In Orhaniye Bay, you will see the unique scenery of a natural tidal formation called 'Kiz Kumu' (Maiden's Beach). There are so many myths about this reddish sand-path going from the shore to the inner parts of the sea which is suitable for walking. On a tiny island located in the bay, you can see the wrecks of an antique castle, a sign of an ancient city. Today, our final destination will be Selimiye for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 6: DIRSEKBUKU - BOZBURUN
After anchoring in Dirsekbuku, we will go to Bozburun which is a small fishing town. This area was popular and suitable for sponge-diving but nowadays the people of the island are no more interested in sponge-diving as it is not financially beneficial and it is dangerous. In recent years sponge-diving has been replaced by gulet tourism and nowadays Bozburun Gulets take their place in the sector.

Day 7: ARAP ISLAND - KADIRGA - MARMARIS
Today, we start cruising early in the morning to Arap Island. Lunch will be served in Kadirga Bay. After a swimming break, we return to Marmaris Port about 16:00 to have dinner and overnight stay.

Day 8: MARMARIS
The guests will leave the boat with precious memories by 10:30 after breakfast.

What our clients say!

Gulet Trip on M/S Remo

Our first experience on a Gulet we had in these last September days (2018). After an ?nternet research I contacted Mr Necmi Artar for a 5 day trip for 2 person. He proposed for 2 people a trip with the boat M/S Remo with the Captains Celal and Ismet (his son) and the younger son Emir. Today will finish our small adventure in the Gulf of Gökova Körfezi and we are really sorry.

The boat is comfortable with a big master cabin and as we are only 2 people we can put the luggage in a smaller cabin. We stopped and stayed in beautiful lonely bays with cristal clear water. Sometimes we could go on the islands to have nice walks in the pine forest. Every day Isemt and Emir cooked delicious Turkish specialities with a lot of fresh vegetables. Everything was very tasty and we discovered the variety of Turkish specialities. Celal the younger son took care of cleaning, anchoring. We enjoyed beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The father speaks a little bit of English, enough to have some nice chat. The best months are June and September, water is still 25° warm but not many Gulets are around and you really enjoy peace and heaven. The family is really lovely and they know the best bays to stay. We could not have a better boat. We felt like honeymooners! (after 13 years of marriage)

PS: The wines we could order on the winelist were really good!

We chartered a boat via Boating Turkey for 1 week in August 2012, and had an excellent cruise.

From the moment we booked in March 2012 till embarcation and disembarcation- Necmi helped us with all our queries to ensure that the trip was perfect and that our satisfaction guaranteed.

The crew was constantly going out of their way to make sure we were satisfied- thus I take this opportunity to thank Captain Yilderim- our chef Yukcel- and of course Recep who helped us with absolutely everything and kept the boat clean at all times.

I would easily recommend Boating Turkey to any friends or family seeking a cruise / charter in Turkey.

Dear Necmi

I would like to thank you for organising our boating trip for our party of 8 – we joined our boat for the last week of June 2013 in Fethyie and travelled to Marmaris although we spent most of the time in the Gocek Bay area. The waters were flat and calm, so much so, it is as if you are on a lake!
The food prepared by our cook was delicious and plentiful – we had our wedding anniversary and a birthday on board and the staff made it special by arranging a cake! Our boat was a 21 metre gulet with 4 cabins which was extremely comfortable, each had own shower ensuite. Lovely front and back deck to laze the day away. Our 3 staff were brilliant and attentive, with Tegood always at the ready to refill our glass!
Nemci also arranged our transport from airports as well as the long trip from Bodrum to Fethyie, all went off without a hitch.
All in al,l a lovely relaxing holiday, beautiful scenery and sparkling blue waters! Would have no hesitation in recommending Necmi/Boating Turkey services.
