I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our trip (May 28 to June 4, 2011) on the Blue Capricorn. The crew of 5 was excellent. Maseih Balci, the captain was great. He was very helpful with all our on the boat and on shore needs and arranged transportation to visit some of the ancient sites. The chef, Muret Sener made the most delicious meals. They were so good that we decided to have all our meals on the boat. In this way, we didnât have to make any meal decisions, leaving all the choices to him, which we all enjoyed.
The arrangements made by Boating Turkey were wonderful. Everything went according to plan and I have no hesitation in recommending Boating Turkey to anyone. Thanks for all the arrangements.

Friendly staff in the base, sailing boat in very good conditions and favorable weather what else needed to make your vacations unforgettable?
During August/September 2015 we enjoyed a sailing holiday in Turkey and Greece which we started planning in November 2014. Quite a few friends showed an interest and we had to find a yacht for bare boat charter which answered our specific requirements for a two week period at the right time to suit 7 couples and at the right price. I sent out several inquiries to a number of charter companies found on the internet and Necmi from Boating Turkey was prompt in responding with a number of options for us to consider. It also was the only response which fully answered all our requirements.
This was our first sail in Turkish waters, in an area we know little of and also the first time crossing international borders sailing. These, together with the idea that I am dealing with a company of which the reputation can only be gauged through previous reviews, raised many questions. Although all of these were promptly and efficiently answered by Necmi during the months long planning stage of the trip, I was still a little apprehensive about what we would encounter once we got there.
On arrival in Bodrum, we received clear directions to the marina in Turgutreis where all the formalities were handled in a very friendly, yet professional manner by SHY, allowing us to depart on an unforgettable holiday experience. Additional information on custom agents on the Greek islands were accurate, but at the same time could not match the excellent service we received from all the officials and the charter company throughout the trip. Everybody really went out of their way to ensure we felt welcome and without any need to worry about anything. Any problems encountered with the boat were dealt with efficiently and we were refunded for any interim expenditure to get us going again.
Thank you Necmi, for your patience with all our questions and for organising the ideal boat! I am not sure what your involvement was with the organisation of the perfect weather we experienced, but thank you for that too! Also pass on our gratitude to Cigdem Ulu from SHY for her assistance and efforts in making sure that their services were tailored to our needs. Also to Vassilis Kapadakis from the Kalymna Yachting Club and Dimitris Kastis from Greek Yacht Services on Leros, for their assistance with moorings, supplies, custom clearance, immigration and general advice.
From the entire crew of Carmen, thank you all for making our holiday a very special experience. We certainly hope we will be able to do this again in the not too distant future.
Once again thank you so much for your amazing service. From the first email I send enquiring about the trip up until the day you said goodbye to us when we disembarked the gullet, you have been professional and helpful. The best thing was your excellent communication, every email was answered promptly. I is scary booking a holiday from a different country and all you can do is hope and pray that it will all worked out and that your are not being swindled. I can recommend Boating Turkey to anyone. The experience was amazing and we cannot wait for a next time.
