The Gulf of Fethiye is surrounded by lower slopes of the Taurus Mountains, pine clad to the water's edge, and its crystal-clear water invites swimmers and snorkelers.
Please ask for private cruise or cabin carter.
Following are the most popular itineraries for one week yachting holiday:
The Port Gocek Marina is the scenic ultimate in yacht marinas and the place the TGE calls home. It is situated up against pined slopes of a national forest in the NW corner of the Gulf of Fethiye. Both the marina and Gocek Town are thirty minutes from Dalaman International Airport.
Gocek Town itself has a unique charm as an emerging tourist destination and yacht haven. From Gocek we take guests by car to ancient Tlos and Saklikent, or to ancient Cadyanda, and from there up into the foothills of the Taurus Mountains to lunch on fresh trout. In Gocek Town, and because we make our home here, we are able to introduce guests to reputable carpet, craft-art, and other merchants.
Two miles from Gemiler, Olu Deniz (meaning Dead Sea) is the most photographed and picture-postcarded of any beach in the Eastern Mediterranean. Photos are best taken during a 30-minute paraglide down from Baba Dag (Father Mountain).
The lagoon at Olu Deniz in 67 BC harbored the Roman galleys of Pompey the Great, there to eject Lycian pirates from Gemiler. The nearby ghost-town of Kaya was emptied by the Turkish-Greek population swap of 1923.
Bodrum is the ideal starting point for sailing the Aegean coast of Turkey. The Gökova Gulf is acknowledged to be one of the best cruising areas in Europe. With abundant sunshine, crystal clear waters, continuous blue skies, good anchorages and friendly people, this coast offers many diversities. There are many unspoiled areas rich in natural beauty and in costal settlements and villages it is still possible to observe local people going about their lives in traditional Turkish village fashion.
Archaeological ruins and historic sites around in Turkey's southern coastal regions. Many ruins and sites such as Cleopatra's lsland, Knidos, Caunos, Patara
and Kekova can be seen directly from the sea.
Others such as Ephesus, Dydima, Miletos can easily be reached from anchorage points.
