What our clients say!
Dear Necmi, Rusen and Boating Turkey
We would like to thank you for the most amazing week on board the Jasmin 1.
We had the most wonderful relaxed and stress free family holiday ever.
The sea was warm and so beautiful and we spend many happy hours swimming and
The boat was beautiful and the crew was so accommodating and friendly,
always striving to make us happy. Our captain always docked in the best
spots in the most beautiful little bays and our chef put together some
wonderful meals, including some lovely desserts. We were even spoilt with
baked cake with afternoon tea. Our captain did the barbecuing or braaing as
we know it in South Africa. He was an absolute champ at cooking on the open
fire on the deck. Burak, the third crew member assisted in all areas. He
was an absolute character and kept my family entertained. His new name
Thank you to the entire crew for making our boating week so special. A
holiday that my family will remember with very special memories for a very
long time.Turkey is a very special place to visit. We loved exploring the
coast on the boat. Bodrum was absolutely charming and our second visit to
Istanbul was as amazing as our first. The people of Turkey are kind,
giving, friendly and honourable. My family will definitely return to
Take care and greetings to you all.

Plettenberg Bay, South Africa
We are very pleased with the services of Boating Turkey - from the planning stage in early spring, the booking process and all the arrangement around the cruise itself. Boating Turkey's agents generally and Mr Necmi Artar in particular were attentive and service-minded. In the vast ocean of the many gulet charter agencies on the internet, we found Boating Turkey to offer a comprehensive and wide range of gulets and to be reliable and trustworty. It is rare not to have anything to complain about, but on this occasion our high expectations have been met in every way. The one week cruise on M/S Kobra in the Gökova Bay was magical and we were very well looked after by Captain Hamza and his crew. We would love to do this again.

We had a good cruise from Bodrum to Marmaris during early September of 2013.
A chef is always important in situations like these and Hassan certainly rose to the occasion, delivering a range of tasty, nutritious and healthy meals doing more than justice to the Turkish cuisine under difficult conditions.
The boat hands Arkhan and Aktihm were extremely diligent, keeping the boat spotless at all times. Aktihm was particularly pleasant with an omnipresent mischievous smile!
Duran, the skipper, performed his task well, demonstrating good seamanship at all times and proving to be an expert at preparing just about anything on the bow mounted barbeque. He chose a sensible route, selecting good overnight stops in beautiful coves, passages and charming villages. Communicating our route, advice and suggestions about what to do ashore and engagement generally was somewhat limited.
Our diverse group from South Africa and New Zealand got on really well, truly enjoying the on board hospitality.
We were somewhat disappointed that the boat was not fully equipped to sail rather than motor all the time. An on board wind surfer and snorkelling gear would have been welcome as well.
Besides that, we had a great time. Boating Turkey were flexible regarding our needs arriving and departing and we will use them again.

Everything was perfect with the boat and the crew. We had a wonderful time with good food, good rest and a lot of fun. Except the first night in front of halicarnass the night club ! We will definitely think to book a new boat for another holidays !
