Marmaris Fethiye Mini Gulet Cruise
Explore the best of the Turkish Riviera on a 4-day air conditioned cruise from Marmaris to Fethiye. Marvel at the Lycian rock tombs before taking a traditional mud bath in Dalyan. Swim in secluded bays, sunbathe onboard as the boat sails or snorkel to glimpse the underwater life. The choice is yours but we guarantee this cruise is relaxation in style.
Traditionally used for trawling and sponge fishing, the cruise boat has been refurbished for cruising. It has simple plumbing and small cabins, but ample deck space for sunbathing. Food is freshly prepared on board, and all you need to do is marvel at the blue of the Meditarranean, swim, snooze and snorkel. This is the BEST way to experience the Mediterranean. The boarding starts at 15:30 from Marmaris Harbour. Guests who arrive early may leave their luggage at our office. On the first day, the service starts on the boat with dinner and overnight stay in Marmaris Port. Marmaris which was built upon one of the antique Karian cities called Phyckos, has been under the rule of many different civilizations. The most valuable work of art that you can see today is Marmaris Castle dating from 1577. There is also a mosque and an 8-room caravansary covered with arches from the Ottoman Period. Overnight in Marmaris
After your breakfast, you will be informed about the cruise itinerary and the boat. The cruise will move towards Ekincik Gulf. You may join our optional Dalyan Tour from here. You will be taken from your yacht by a small boat called piyade. You will arrive at Caretta-Caretta (turtle) Beach and take a swimming break here. You will enjoy the natural beauty of the delta as you cruise along the river. You will see the ancient Rock Tombs and finally arrive at mud baths to relax and be rejuvenated. A fishing village called Dalyan will be our final destination after we return to our yacht by piyade boat. Dinner and overnight stay will be in the Gulf of Ekincik.
Because of the wavy seas of Disibilmez and Kurtoglu that we have to cross, we will cruise earlier than the other days and reach the world-famous Fethiye Gulf. We will anchor at Adali Bay for breakfast. For lunch and a swimming break, we will go to Manastir Bay. This place is known as Cleopatra Bay or Sunken Bath Bay due to the beautiful underwater ruins of an old bath. We will anchor at Tersane Island for dinner and overnight stay. This naturally protected harbour was used as the shipyard in Byzantine and Ottoman times.
After breakfast, we will cruise to Kizil Island for lunch and a swimming break. Disembark from your cruise late afternoon.
Every Saturdays only.

Mike and I can't thank you enough for organising our great holiday, we had an amazing time, just wish we had allowed more time for rest days in the wonderful hotels you arranged for us.
Our stay at the Gardenia Hotel in Kas was a true joy. Our hosts were very gracious and welcoming, and the champagne and chocolate coated strawberries delivered to our room made my birthday a memorable one.
All our hotels were excellent and in great positions for us to explore the towns. The cruise was all you said it would be, we had a fun mix of fellow sailors and I wasn't seasick at all. The balloon ride was smooth and in such a fascinating region.
All our transfers, and flights were on time.
Thanking you again.Read More

Our Grand Tour of Turkey with Turkey Travel Centre was an amazing experience, one we will treasure forever.
The Itinerary was fabulous and so
varied. What a range of experiences and sights to take in! The system of
drivers, guides and transfers never ceased to amaze us, as it ran just
like clockwork. The only two occasions we got a little confused were at
the drop off point in Marmaris for our Gulet Cruise and also when being
picked up in Fetihye
after the Cruise. On both occasions helpful local people were only too happy to call Enver for us and all was sorted in no time. The misunderstanding was on our part both times.
The tours were all informative and well conducted and we found all our guides and drivers to be most professional. We felt in safe hands at all times and were able to just sit back, relax and enjoy it all.
We were very satisfied with the quality of our Boutique Hotels and all the staff were welcoming and helpful. Everything was clean, comfortable and organised and the locations of the Hotels was always convenient to access by walking, restaurants, shops, sites to visit etc.
The Turkish people are delightful and always polite and friendly. They can't do enough for vistors to their country. Australians could learn a lot about Tourism and how to treat overseas visitors from your Company and the Turkish People. There is so much more to Turkey than we ever imagined.
Thanks again Liz to you and your Company for organizing such a memorable holiday for us. We will not hesitate to recommend Turkey Travel Centre to anyone we meet who wishes to travel to the amazing destination of Turkey.Read More
What is the best time of year to visit Turkey?
Istanbul is a city operating all year round so any-time is good to visit. If you like sunshine, come between April to October as winter in Istanbul can be cold and rainy with the occasional snowfall.
The tourism season on the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts run from May to October but tourist sites like Ephesus are open all year round. Gulet cruises are more enjoyable when refined to the months of June to September.
Cappadocia is also a region operating all year round, although in the wintertime, snowfall is usual. The snow does provide a pretty landscape view and the hot air balloons rides will still operate as long as weather conditions are advisable.
If you travel between the months of December to March, bring an umbrella as this is when the country receives the most amount of rain.Read More
Touring the Mediterranean Coast of Turkey
Although I reside on the Aegean coast of Turkey, I have always maintained I prefer the Mediterranean coast. It does not have majestic ruins the size of Ephesus or any landmark like the cotton castle of Pamukkale but it has many other attractions and qualities making up the difference. Stretching from the resort of Alanya in the Antalya region to the Marmaris peninsula, the coastline is a popular holiday destination for Russians, Scandinavians, and Brits. One long coastal road connects them all making a tour of the region easily done. So that is what I did in the summer of 2011.Resorts of the Mediterranean Coast of Turkey
The Antalya region has many attractive resorts including cosmopolitan Alanya, historic Side, Kemer, the golfing capital of Belek and the city centre itself. I opted to book accommodation in the small resort of Kemer, which exists predominately with all-inclusive hotels. This was a big mistake because I like quiet beaches but they were all packed sunbed to sunbed.Read More
Gulet Cruising on the Turkish Riviera
The Aegean and Mediterranean coasts of Turkey are one long stretch of beautiful and scenic destinations. The coastline is full of historical ruins, sandy beaches, and sleepy fishing villages that are the Turkish Riviera, which it is not as well-known as its French counterpart, but just as alluring.
Gulet cruising the Turkish Riviera is not a new phenomenon but it has never appealed to the mainstream holiday market until recent years.The Internet is slowly shifting people’s perception of travel.
Where as in the past, holidaymakers relied on their travel agent to formulate their itinerary; they now embark on independent forms of travel including gulet cruises around the coastline of Turkey.Read More
