BLUE CRUISE GENERAL INFORMATION

BLUE CRUISE TURKEY

 

An alternative way to have a relaxing holiday is boarding a traditional wooden Gulet for Blue Cruise. When compared to vacationing on land at some resort villages, the plus points are to the guests’ advantage.
 

WHAT DO YOU DO ON A BLUE CRUISE?

 

You are in a boat with limited number of people.  If you are bored with one cove, you can sail to another. If you don't like the crowded area, you can still sail to a silent bay, jump into water, swim and enjoy water sports without the scrutinizing looks of by-standers.

 

You don’t have to surrender to other peoples’ likings and you don’t have to watch the animations. Just carry out your own program. Sleep as long as you like, eat as much as you want, go on the shores, walk in the green, eat at the rural restaurants and cook if you wish.

 

Watch the time, enjoy the sunset, shoot pictures, read books, play cards, sip your drink either under the shade of tent or in the hammock, watching the scenery.

 

If you prefer, get up early and take a dip in the clear waters, collect shells, prepare your fishing tackle and fish before anyone wakes up. Feed the fish with the leftovers of breakfast table and watch them gather around the boat.

 

Check the map, locate your whereabouts, look at the sky, talk to the captain, listen to his stories and memories, try to sing some of the local songs and listen to your favorite music. Watch the lighthouses on your route, visit the archeological sites, use binoculars to see distant panorama, try to guess the ships sailing by, learn a few sailors’ knots, increase your naval knowledge, dream about buying a boat.

 

If you don’t want to sleep in the cabin, grab a sleeping bag and sleep on the deck. But be sure to watch the stars in the sky, that you have not noticed or seen while in the city. Watch the moon and the phosphorescence on the sea. Read your daily papers that you have previously ordered while at Gocek Port, solve the crosswords, puzzles.

 

Try to figure out the best way to cook the fresh fish just brought to the boat. Go on the shore and build a stone castle. Row your small boat to the shore and back and listen to the sound of your oars.

 


 

BLUE CRUISE OR HOTEL VACATION?  ADVANTAGES OF BLUE CRUISE...

 

First of all, you don’t have to stay at one spot; you can change your location and surroundings according to your wish, swim in various bays and enjoy the sun.

 

You don’t have to dress up as in hotels or resort villages.

 

While taking a dip into the water you don’t have to use transportation or climb stairs, look for umbrellas and chaise-lounges or leave towels to reserve your seat.

 

You don’t have to queue according the buffet times. There is no waiter at the side of your table to change the used ashtray.

 

You do not have to watch the animation shows in other languages.

 

You do not have to be disappointed with the realities of the outer world and try to adapt yourself when you walk out of the resort village where everything is organised as a dream.

 

You do not have to survive the authoritative looks of the hotel staff.

 


 

CHARTERING A PRIVATE YACHT

 

Forming a group with your family or friends will be sufficient enough to sail a private cruise.

 

All you have to provide us is the number of people in your group and your daily budget per person, together with your vacation dates. We will be happy to help you with route and yacht / gullet selection process.

 

You can select one of our standard, luxurious or deluxe yachts. The important thing is the maintenance of the boat not the age. Golden Yachting takes excellent care of its boats, whatever category they are in. This is a must for your safety as well as your comfort. Therefore, our boats are thoroughly maintained with highest security standards and they abide the laws of international and local regulations.  Also, they are controlled by the Coast Guard and the Port Authorities.

 

Our yachts have 2 to 16 cabins and each cabin has WC, bath and wash basin. Their length change between 15 to 43 meters and are designed in old style “Gullet”, hand made of wood, with engines and sails. 

 

You do not have to stretch your budget to charter a boat. Always bear in mind that whichever boat you rent, whether the most deluxe or the most reasonably priced one, the bays or inlets you will visit, the view and the sun are the same. The joy of blue cruise depends upon the harmony with your friends, taste of food and the staff of the boat. Thus, we assure you that whatever your budget is, we will provide you with the most suitable boat.

 

Starting from April 1st until the end of October, you can organize blue cruise, renting a boat. However, due to high demand, we suggest that you make your reservation at the earliest possible date.

 

 

LIFE ON BOARD

 

All boats/yachts have daily two or three stops. The last stop is always for overnight. Sailing is with engine, however, if requested and if the weather permits, you can benefit from the sails. When programming the route, maximum four hours of sailing is planned. For extra time, there is additional cost to be covered by the guests.

 

Lots of different equipment such as fishing tackles, snorkels and service boats are available at our boats. Some yachts have wind surf and canoe as well, which are free of charge.  You can rent water ski, banana, jet ski, wind surf from the private companies on the shores of your route.

 

Blue cruise is enjoying the beauties of nature, silent coves, blue sea and a green of the surroundings. However, who can hinder your nap under the tent or deprive you from reading a good book...or fishing on the open seas for an appetizing dinner. You can watch the depth of the blue seas with snorkel: we are confident you will be mystified and will not want to come out. When we anchor in small bays you can take a short walk in the pine forests.  You will have plenty of time to take archeological tours on some special spots. Just a pair of walking shoes will be needed.  It is possible to extend the list of alternatives; briefly you will be enjoying the taste of freedom.
