Day 1

Embarkation to the gulet at the afternoon in Gocek. The Gocek coves and islands are the meeting point of Turkish 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.

On short notice we chartered a Jeanneau 40.3 ex Fethiye for 5 adults. The charter startup was efficient and friendly. For a 2006 build boat it was in surprisingly good condition. We sailed both sides of Fethiye, including up to Gocek and found numerous little bays to swim in and also pleasant bayside restaurents for dinner. We have no hesitation to recommend Boating Turkey.

We had a fantastic sailing week in Turkey, and Boating Turkey offered us a seemless experience. We were a diverse group of Italians, Polish, Israeli, Moroccan/Swedish, Brazilian and Spanish - not an easy group to deal with. Despite that, and our numerous changes of mind, everything was taken care of smoothly and effortlessly. We recommend them highly.
