What is blue Voyage?
Turkey is a treasure chest of coves, inlets, bays and beaches from which yachters can choose a different and always private anchorage each night. The sailing paradise of Turkey is home of the BLUE VOYAGE.  

This idyllic cruise means sailing with the nature. It means also experiencing the history of human being from the sea rather than from land; a journey which carries you to the private beach of Cleopatra, the eternal fires of Mt. Olympos and Myria the archeological remains of ancient civilizations. For the lovers of the active life, sailing in the clear waters provides the opportunity of swimming, fishing, skiing, surfing and diving. 

Sailing in Turkey also allows you to experience a truly enriching cultural exchange with the hospitable and gracious people of the coastal villages and towns. The tempered winds which generally blow from the west and northwest make the long summers ideal f or the yachting and seem encourage an appreciation of nature. From some of the turquoise coast's unspoilt and sheltered bays, you can see mountain peaks rising to almost 3000 meters above sea level. Fortunately, modern facilities and comfort have not developed in Turkey at the expense of ancient hospitality and slower pace of life.

The pleasure of yachting in Turkey will tempt you back again and again to explore yet another stretch of coast and to relieve the luxurious ease of life on the sea.

Sail and trek is a unique holiday concept:
We use our sail boat as a floating base camp and walk daily to unspoiled areas of southwest of Turkey where mountains meet the Mediterranean Sea. Each day, we will be sailing from one bay to another. Our anchorage places differ from fisherman villages to isolated bays. We were here last year and we'll be here when you want to book again next year.
If you want vegetarian kitchen, fish safari photo safari, or biblical tours, please ask detail.
