Göcek’s 12 islands and many bays, clear and clean water, green pine and amber forests and pristine beaches were on the menu for our sailing trip out of Fethiye on the Turquoise Coast of Turkey.
We spent four perfect days and three balmy nights aboard the yacht called “Ros”, named after her Australian-born owner, with Before Lunch Cruises.
The yacht had 6 double cabins and one family cabin for 4, all with private ensuites, and one bunk cabin with shared bathroom and it accommodated 16 people on board, with Captain and 2 crew. We were fortunate to bag a double cabin at the front of the yacht.
Here’s how the yacht cruise unfolded:
Our four days were absolutely scintillating. Our cabin was comfortable and well equipped, although we spent most nights along with all of the other passengers sleeping on deck on one of the sunbeds, as it was too hot to sleep below. We were looking at temperatures in the high to 30’s to low 40’s each day.
The uphill hikes on both islands were challenging and exhausting but the ruins and the views were well worth the discomfort. Swimming and snorkelling in the clean clear water was amazing.
As for food and beverages, the yacht had a well stocked fridge with a good range of beer, wine and soft drinks and it was an honour system – you marked your drink selection on a chart above the fridge. Meals were delicious and plentiful, prepared fresh by our Chef/Captain and mainly consisted of vegetarian plus fish or chicken.
We were fortunate to have a wonderful entertaining group of guests aboard with us on the yacht and of an evening we played cards, listened to one of the guests play her guitar or generally sat around having a few drinks and laughs.
I would highly recommend this yacht cruise for travellers to Turkey. It was an amazing four days of relaxing, devouring delicious food, enjoying the company of other guests aboard, swimming and snorkelling in the pristine Aegean Sea and exploring ruins and caves. When I dream about the perfect holiday this is where I go!
Have you been on a yacht cruise on the Aegean or Mediterranean Sea or somewhere else?
