Discover Turkey's Turquoise Coast on a yachting holiday unlike any
other. Board a gulet (hand crafted wooden boat built to a traditional Turkish
design) and you'll spend your days soaking up endless sunshine,
napping, reading and relaxing, swimming in crystal waters, snorkelling, fishing and windsurfing, visiting ancient sites, whilst
your crew tends to your every need.
During the Blue Cruise, the places you visit are the wealth
of civilizations. Any cruising ground that you choose is rich with historic sites, ancient cities and unique rock tombs.
To name just a few they are the private beach of Cleopatra,
Oludeniz,the rock tombs of Kaunos, the eternal fires of mount Olympos, Myria rock tombs, the
archaeological remains of ancient civilizations, that had also
remained under sea. Only Blue Cruise will give you the chance to
The experience of seeing breathtaking panoramic views of a sea which flows into shades of green and blue or the sun slipping down towering mountains and slowly disappearing into a golden hazed sea can only be described as priceless.
Countless hidden coves, undiscovered bays, sun drenched sandy beaches and isolated villages make this an exceptional holiday adventure.
During Blue Cruise you can go beyond the ordinary. Most of us live in
large cities where the city lights dull the brightness of the stars.
On the Blue Cruise you can see the stars very clearly. If your Blue
Cruise coincides with the full moon, it is exceptionally beautiful
in these parts.
When there is no moon, you are in for another treat, Phosphor scene.
It is the phenomenon created by
tiny creatures invisible to human
eye. In the pitch dark when moving in the water, it glitters when,
for example you are rowing. At the point where the oar touches the
surface of the water, there will be circles of light. The drops of
water splashing from the oars will drop on the surface of the sea
like a shower of stars.
Swimming on a pitch dark night is an incredible experience, like a
narcissistic pleasure. Now imagine you will be lying on the deck and
alone with stars while the sea is quite choppy with in the gulf or
imagine visiting fishermen's villages isolated by the bay during the
