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.
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

Boating Turkey organized bareboat yacht in Turkey. Our team, eleven persons were fond of Tequila, Benetau Cyclades 50,5. It was in perfect condition and check-in was professional. Some little shortages were quickly liquidated. We had rather volatile weather including sunshine and thunderstorm, but Tequila had always high level performance. Sailing first time outside EU we got all necessary information about formalities and regulations. We'd like to thank Necmi for wonderful vacation.
Our charter from was 24/5 until 7/6 2014 from Marmaris for two weeks. We were group of ten, from Australia and New Zealand. I started to communicate with Necmi from Boating Turkey some months before the charter and found him to be most helpful from the start. Organising a trip like this for a group is disconcerting to say the least but Necmi helped to make it much easier by responding immediately to any questions I had. His helpful suggestions including wonderful Turkish wines were most welcome.
Our charter was onboard the "Azra Deniz" a 26 meter gulet complete with a crew of 3. She was not a five star but very comfortable in every way. The crew were sensational, the skipper, the chef and our ever smiling deckhand were always helpful and our itinerary included some of the wonderful villages, coves and historic sites of Turquoise Coast. We also has a visit to Simi in Greece which we all enjoyed. The weather was very kind to us, so there was plenty of swimming, canoeing and sunbathing, lots of time for relaxation as well. Each night we would decide on where we would go the next day and what we would do but most of the time we followed our skipper's suggestions, he really ensured we has quite diverse experiences both in scenery and activities.
Our chef constantly prepared the most amazing meals, to good in fact as the waistlines slowly expanded! We were just amazed at his skills.
Our group had the most wonderful holiday, our crew certainly made a major contribution to this. The coast of Turkey is exquisite and its people are so warm and friendly and the food and wine superb.
Necmi came to meet us when we arrived on the boat in Marmaris and we appreciated that he did. He drove down from Bodrum. He really knows his bussiness and that is so important when you are organising travel plans from so far away.
Thank you so much for your help Necmi.
We all had an amazing time one one will remember for a long time to come.
