Cruising Turkey's Turquoise Coast with a Blue Cruise.

What is a blue cruise (mavi yolculuk)?

In the late 1950's a group of writers, painters and naturalists discovered the rich natural beauty and archaeology of the Gulf of Gokova, the coastal area to the south of Bodrum. Yacht cruises were enjoyed aboard the local, shallow-keeled coastal trading boats known as Gulets.

In the following years, larger, engine powered Gulets explored further and extended along the spectacular Mediterranean coast from Bodrum in the west to Antalya in the east.

This type of yacht cruise is called, in Turkish, mavi yolculuk which translates as Blue Voyage or blue cruise.

Guests are accommodated in spacious, luxuriously appointed cabins with air conditioning and ensuite shower-rooms.

Most cabins have large double beds. There are also a few "family twins", 2-bedded rooms with a double and a single bed. Fresh bed linen and towels are provided mid-week.
