More about the Blue Cruise
"The small harbors and settlements offer an intimate
view of coastal life which large ships cannot replicate authentically.
In many ways a gulet is like a full service hotel where every room has a sea view and the scenery changes constantly."

day need, though the crew do appreciate being treated as friends rather than as staff!

that will be there for you when the need arises. You may participate in sailing, have the chance to explore every
little cove and on your route.
The many choices of itineraries, is a wonderful manner in which to experience a truly remarkable coastline.
Gulet cruising is all about tranquillity and getting away from the pressures of modern day life whilst cruising
the crystal clear azure waters that gently lap the famous and magnificent coastline of south-western Turkey.
Standard Bodrum built Gulets
are not luxury cruise liners, they are traditional handmade boats that have been built in more or less the same
style for centuries. Step aboard, stow away your belongings and let the cruise begin.
Standard Gullet 6 cabins
Your floating home will be 18/24 meters
(55-74 feet) long, 6 -8 double cabins with ensuite toilette and shower. Sailing, snorkeling, fishing, sunbathing
are some of the activities on board. Breakfast, lunch & dinner will be served by your cook
Clients Arrival on Board
Upon arrival our clients are assisted into their cabins. The clients will find their cabins fully prepared; clean
bed linen, towels (as linen and towels are included it is suggested for clients to bring their own beach or deck
towel), hand soap and toilet paper. (Please follow the crews insructions not to throw paper in the toilet, due
to blocking the system.)
Once our clients have arrived and are familiar with their cabins, a welcome meeting is held on deck. After the
introductions of Captain and crew members, some information and rules regarding your safety and convenience will
Depending on what time our clients arrive appropriate refreshment is served.
This is also a good time for the captain to show our clients the sea charts and describes the route to them.
Electric lights run from either 12v or 24v DC batteries.
If our clients require 220v AC electricity for recharging laptops or mobile telephones the yacht will have 220v
AC generators on board. The Turkish sockets have two horizontal round pins, so if the client's electrical appliance
plug were different, we would suggest they bring a travel adapter.
As the dressing on board is not formal, you won't have to bring anything extra apart from some comfortable sports
style erotic clothing to your preference.
On the yachts we do not wear any shoes. This is to prevent sand and dirt coming onto the wooden decks. We would
also advise clients to bring a pair of socks with them, just in case the weather is cool in
Life On Board Every day we will be visiting one or two bays,
making the last stop the place we stay for the night. It is necessary for the yachts to visit a larger port every
three or four day to enable the crew to take on water, ice and fresh provisions. Your participation is always welcome
on board of the boat. In some bays private entrepreneurs coming alongside and offering water ski, bingo or banana
rides, or even para-sailing.
The captain and crew will of course enjoy passing their experience onto the clients and if they wish to steer the
yacht or lend their hands at setting the sails, the crew can teach them, and of cours yYou may take the advantage
of fishing equipment on board.

All our tours which are offered
here take place on Standard-Yachts, the traditional Bodrum-built GULET. All yachts are between 19 - 25 meters length,
these vessels accommodate between 12 and
16 guests in 6 to 8 cabins.
The cabins have en-suite WC & showers. (Hot & cold). There is a music set, VHF Radiotelephone and a dinghy
on each yacht, snorkel and fishing gear, often a canoe, but in general no air condition. Crew consists of a captain,
cook and a deckshand.
An exact yacht’s name can not be available
until 1 or 2 days before departure, as numbers of bookings come in often late. This works well over the years like
a cooperative and we advice you to give us your mobile phone that we stay in contact to give you captain's number
and boat name.
The crew aboard our Gulets and yachts often do not have a foreign language mastered, but they almost always know
a few ’every-day’ phrases in English and are able to understand almost all your requests.
