Day 1

Embarkation to the gulet at the afternoon in Gocek. The Gocek coves and islands are the meeting place of Turkey’s and the world’s high society. Gocek which was a calm and quite village until almost yesterday, is now the scene of the rapid construction work. We will cruise to Yassicalar Island; this groups of islands are so small that no one could came up with names for each of them. They are together known as Yassicalar. There are no facilities on the islands. On the largest island of the group the beach is near the point and forms as a small pool, excellent for children. One is able to swim between the different islets ,the closest being just 12 meters distance. If you can swim for half an hour, you can visit four different islands and if you have shoes with you you can walk over on each of them. Overnight in Yassicalar Island.

Day 2

Afterwards we cruise to Oludeniz .The Blue lagoon of Oludeniz has calm , crystal-clear waters which make it ideal for watersports, and very safe place for people to swim. Part of the lagoon area is now protected as one of Turkey’s national park. Option’s for para gliding are available.

Day 7

Today is our last day, we will have some great bays to complete our weekly cruise. First stop is Domuz Island, it is believed that it has taken its name from the wild boars livind on that island once upon a time. The island is also called Princess Island referring to a prince living on here. Gulets can easily anchor and moore in the cove of islands as its sheltered from the winds. Next stop is Cleopatra Bay, Also known as Hamam (bath) Cove, this island is one of the coves that gulets and yachts on the Blue cruise can not pass without visiting. The cruisers love to spend the night there. Right next to there you will see the ruins of a monastery which is partly under water. You may enjoy having a pleasant walk on the shore and in the forest if you get off the gulet. Cruiser love to spend the night in Cleopatra Bay, as we will do same. Overnight in Cleopatra Bay.

Hi Necmi,

We had a safe return after a very enjoyable week in Perla del Mare 2.
Just to give you a feed back of our week.
What was good:
-The Captain and the crew generally speaking.
-The food very well cooked.
-The bays chosen by the Captain, very nice and quiet.
-The outside of the Gulet.
What was not good:
-The interior of the boat did not have any renovation as you said, she was not in a good condition, quite a lot of things did not work properly.
-The lay out was different of the one that was sent, and the crew were 5 and not 6 as shown on the photographs sent to us.
We changed our destination because of weather conditions, and we ended up by staying around Gocek, but we enjoyed very very much the week.

Thank you for the organization and I hope we will go back to Turkey again.
Best regards

My daughter did considerable research before booking Apeka for a 7 day cruise from Marmaris to Kas for my wife and me, our 3 children and their partners and my wife's niece.The cruise would have to be as good a holiday as anything we have ever had. What could ever be better than pulling into a uninhabited cove and everyone diving into the azure blue Mediterranean! Yes there was the occasional rain and wind. But Cemil (Jimmy) our captain always perfectly navigated a smooth course through any swell and always found a safe spot to moor. Add in Guten? and her husband's magnificent cuisine over 3 amazing meals ever day and you have perfection.

If you want a stress free fantastic value for money holiday with close family or friends, a cruise with Cemil has to be it.
