What our clients say!
We had a wonderful week of sailing in Turkey and the boat and crew far exceeded our expectations. The planning process through Boating Turkey was very smooth and everything turned out to be exactly as promised. The chef on board cooked three fantastic meals a day and everyone from 12 to 55 years of age had a great vacation. The captain was very knowledgeable about the waters around Bodrum and we will definitively consider coming back for more

I want to thank-you very much for all of your help and organization of our boating trip. It was organized perfectly. The boat was beautiful. It was very clean, spacious and in perfect shape. Sailing along the Turkish coast was beautiful. Great anchorages, towns and bays. Everyone we met was very friendly and the food was delicious.
We appreciated all of your help with our on shore arrangements also. The tour of Ephesus and the transportation to Bodrum worked very well.
I would highly recommend Boating Turkey to anyone looking for a sailing trip along the Turkish coast.
Thank-you Necmi. Your service was excellent.
Friends of ours had hired a Gullet with Boating Turkey and recommended them so our family of 5 ( 3 sons between 7 and 13) hired a Gullet for a week in early August and motored the Gocek Marmaris Gocek route. The Gullet, Remo was captained by its owner Celal and his two competent sons Cem and Erdem. Celal is a very seasoned mariner with more than 40 years at sea so we felt very safe in his Gullet. Although we did not hoist the sails we still experienced the sensation of being on a sailing boat in the open sea travelling to and from Marmaris and witnessed some spectacular sunrises.
The food was exceptional especially given the size of a galley kitchen and each day we ate very well. Celal chose idyllic locations for daily swimming and snorkelling and our boys had great fun kayaking, waterskiing and of course jumping off the boat! Some highlights on shore were visiting the ancient city of Kaunos, the rock tombs and seeing the endangered loggerhead turtles.
Boating Turkey were very easy to communicate with and quick to respond. We hope to revisit the Turkish coast and would not hesitate using Boating Turkey again.

We initially found the Boating Turkey website just by trawling the internet but once Necmi has responded to our first enquiry, we never looked any further. He was so helpful in helping us choose a route, answering all our questions and providing advice. In fact, he gave us travel tips for Istanbul and arranged many of our transfers and recommended hotels etc. Pretty much whatever we asked for - a great add-on service. There were four couples on our Gulet (Albatross A) together with three crew members. Our cruise departed from Fethiye and ended at Marmaris. We pretty much left everything to the crew on the basis that they had done it a few times and would know what worked. We were not disappointed and had a wonderful holiday. The crew were very good at keeping a low profile on board but at the same time maintained excellent levels of service. The food is legendary and we looked forward to every meal - full board is a must. I would have no hesitation in recommending Boating Turkey to anyone.
