Blue Cruises Turkey 8 Day 7 Nights Gulet Cruise
Our 8-day cruises are some of the most popular sailing holidays in the southern coastal region. With so many great itineraries to choose from it can be a little daunting making that decision so we have laid out some of our best 8-day sailing delectations here, with a few interesting details so that you can make the best choice for your blue cruise Turkey.
These are a small selection of many of our cruises that will fit in with your 8-day time frame available, and if you have had a look at all our itineraries but want something different or tailored to your taste then maybe a luxury yacht charter is yet another choice that will make your Alaturka sailing experience the best it can be.
Our Bodrum to Fethiye cruise will take you to a different location every day and as with all our cruises, we make time for plenty of swimming, snorkelling and relaxation. Once you have left Bodrum harbour this cruise travels to bays and islands that are a little less frequented than many. The Bodrum peninsula is becoming more popular every year but there are still a few bays that seem to have been untouched and proudly hanging on to their old-world charm. Kara Ada (Black Island) is such a place as is Palamutbuku you will spend time in both locations and also near here you will visit Cnidus an ancient city, with history laid before you continuously under excavation, maybe you will find more than you expected. Datca is a lovely old fishing village that has grown into a town of 2 halves, a modern busy bustling tourism haven however the old town hasn’t changed much at all with narrow streets and small coffee shops serving traditional beverages for you to taste. Your cruise will take you on to sleepy Serce and Bozukkale truly 2 places where you will completely unwind and spend your time either in the water or laying on the deck, top up the tan or read a book whilst listening to the waves lap the side of the gullet. You will visit Marmaris with its old marina and in contrast, its busy touristy town, anchoring overnight here will give you the chance to take in the nightlife. Ekincik bay is another quiet day at sea, a secluded area, but you also have the option of adding an extra excursion to Dalyan mud baths, the choice is yours, you will stop on many small islands along the way to the last destination which is where we say goodbye, Fethiye, with so much to see here, Fethiye is a holiday destination in itself.
We have four different 8-day cruises that take to out of Turkish waters and travel to both the Greek islands and the islands of Croatia so if you wish to sail further afield then one of these could be the cruise for you, both Greece and Croatia have amazing scenery and long hot summers and are surrounded by amazing clear warm Mediterranean and Agean water making for perfect cruising. With the added attractions of stopping at some of the oldest settlements in Europe with stunning architecture and a real feel of living history, from the homes of the ancient Greek gods to the landscaped of the film game of thrones, Croatia and Greece are both amazing.
Our Kemer to Kekova cruise is altogether more gentle you will still find yourself in new and amazing locations every day but the pace is a little slower this cruise is focused on de-stressing, leaving the routine of daily life behind, letting us pamper and take care of you and enjoying the finer things in life good company, great food, sun sea and sleeping in. Oh, and with copious amounts of swimming snorkelling, fishing and diving thrown in, you will visit some of the prettiest places in this region such as Ucagiz village which has barely changed for hundreds of years, to Simena Castle and the Sunken City in Kekova, to the completely deserted bays of Porto Ceneviz and Sazak bay with cliffs that seem to just stop abruptly at the edge of the ocean, and on to Phaselis cove where the footprints of the roman empire are still seen today with aqueducts, baths, a grand theatre and Hadrians gate.
