Private Cruise Details
When you charter the boat for private use, you have exclusive use of the gulet, allowing us to customize every aspect of your holiday.
Our private gulet cruises offer:
- Flexible schedules: We accommodate cruises of 3 days or more, and allow you to determine the start and end dates that work best with your vacation plans.
- Custom itineraries: Captain Oktay will work with you to plan the perfect itinerary based on your group's interests and holiday schedule. We regularly cruise Turkey's Turquoise coast and through the Dodecanese islands of Greece, so the options are virtually endless!
- Personalized menus: Love fish, hate chicken? Lactose intolerant? Vegetarian? Can't go a day without chocolate or a popcorn fix? No problem. We'll stock the boat according to your wishes, and serve the foods and drinks you love during your Mediterranean sailing holiday.
- Immaculately clean and comfortable accommodation and access to all on-board amenities and water sports equipment aboard Arkadaslik.
- Professional service by our friendly and attentive crew - before, during, and after your cruise holiday.
- All inclusive pricing - including all meals and snacks, drinks (unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages), accommodation, crew service, fuel, taxes, etc. Pretty much everything you'd expect on a luxury sailing holiday!
- Postcard quality souvenir photos and videos of your group's sailing adventure to share with friends and family back home. (We do everything possible to make your Turkish Blue Cruise a completely UNFORGETTABLE experience!)
- Plus, if you're looking for "something extra" during your dream vacation, we can organize day trips, paragliding, guided hikes and tours, scuba diving excursions, and high-speed water-sport activities with safe, reputable providers. Let us know what you need for the vacation of your dreams - and we'll make it happen!
