Sail Turkey

Program Outline

Sail Turkey and discover the beauty, peace and culture

We plan to sail from Göcek marina on this 7 – Day route around the stunning Turquoise Coast. Visiting Turkey may not be the most obvious choice for a sailing holiday, but charter a yacht in Turkey with a skipper is becoming more popular each year.

The beautiful beaches, endless scenic views and friendly locals are all part of Turkey’s allure. Bodrum, Dalaman, Marmaris Fethiye and Göcek are just some of the popular holiday destinations in Turkey.

Göcek sits on the lower south-western corner of the Turquoise Coast, and is easily accessed by Dalaman airport. Göcek is favoured by sailors and lovers of the Turkish Riviera scene, and less so by mainstream tourists.

    • Arrival in Göcek – Saturday
      Arrive during the afternoon, check-in and settle into your yacht. There will be an evening with a welcome meeting and drinks and an opportunity to meet the rest of the crew and to get to know each other.
      Each morning the skipper will discuss the day ahead at sea the passage outline/direction for our overnight stay (depending on weather and sailing conditions).
      During the evenings, there will be some planned events, but also free time for your own exploration of the beautiful places we are staying at.
    • Day 1 – Göcek
      Spend your first morning exploring the town, gathering all the necessary provisions for the week.
    • Day 2 – From Göcek to Kapi Creek, 8 Nautical miles
      Wake to a glorious sunrise and head to one of the most beautiful anchorage points along this area of coast, Kapi Creek. Anchor here for the night, relax, go swimming and enjoy bathing in the crystal clear turquoise water.
    • Day 3 – From Kapi Creek to Cold Water Bay, 12 Nautical miles
      Sail from Kapi Creek to Cold Water Bay, a stunning bay with fresh water springs that push cool, refreshing water up through the rocky seabed.
      A quick 10-minute tender ride will bring you to the Gemiler adasi, an ancient sunken town dating back to the Byzantine era.
      You can also take a short walk up behind Cold Water Bay to see Kaya Köy, an abandoned Greek village.
    • Day 4 – From Cold Water Bay to Kas, 25 Nautical miles
      Sailing to Kas from Cold Water Bay is one of the longer stretches on this route, but it’s well worth it. Kas is a bustling town with a great harbour and there are a variety of quality stores and restaurants available, so you can stock the boat or spend a night indulging in local cuisine in town.
    • Day 5 – From Kas to Kalkan, 15 Nautical miles
      Today, a shorter sail from Kas will bring you to the beautiful beachside town of Kalkan. Here, you’ll have plenty of options for daily excursions, such as visiting the ancient sites of Thlos, Choose to dine at a rooftop restaurant with a picturesque view of the harbour, or anchor in one of the peaceful, quiet bays across from Kalkan.
    • Day 6 is a short sail across the bay to arrive back in Göcek for your last evening
      You can stop along the way at places like Yassica or Boynuz Bükü and enjoy a swim in the glistening turquoise ocean. Return to the charter base in the afternoon and prepare for one last evening in the charming town of Göcek.
    • Day 7 – Final day in Göcek
      After departing your vessel in the morning, a short walk around Göcek will be a peaceful way to unwind after your week at sea. Known for its exclusivity as a destination for luxury yachts, many people see it as a place to relax and rejuvenate and enjoy the Turkish coastline away from the busy crowds. So jump off the boat, explore this idyllic town and walk off those sea legs!
