an itinerary designed to the unique interests of your group
fantastic meals and snacks based on your group's tastes and preferences
unlimited drinks - both alcoholic and non-alcoholic
friendly and professional service – before, during, and after your cruise

Past Private Cruises
The Pandemic meant our 2020 season didn't quite turn out as planned, but we were still able to host a few wonderful cruises aboard Arkadaslik.
An Exclusive Getaway For Two Self-Confessed "Foodies"
Our chef went above and beyond preparing incredible meals for Luc and Carine as they cruised the Göcek Islands and beyond.
Couples TravelFood LoversGöcek Getaway6 Days / 5 Nights
We weren't able to confirm this cruise until the lockdown was eased for the 65+ crowd in Turkey. But once the restrictions lifted, we were delighted to kick off the season with a lovely cruise around the Göcek Islands with 4 English couples from the Dalyan area.

A Relaxing Late Fall Getaway - The Best Time to Cruise
There's nothing quite as peaceful and relaxing as a late season cruise in the Göcek Islands. Our friends enjoyed gorgeous weather and none of the busy-ness commonly seen during peak season. Fall is a great time to cruise!

An Action Packed Adventure Cruise for Scuba Lovers
When George described his family's dream vacation, we knew a classic Kekova cruise would be a perfect fit. Small seaside towns to explore, opportunities for scuba diving, and as much "sail time" as possible.
Cruising Turkey AND Greece - A Biennial Tradition with Family and Friends from North America
We love travelling with this 3-generational group from Canada and the US. Two years ago, their Blue Cruise around the Greek Islands in the Dodecanese region was rerouted due to bad weather. Perhaps we'll finally be able to visit the missed islands on this trip!

The Pertsev Family Cruise: Our First Guests from the Ukraine
When Alexie contacted us to arrange a week-long sailing vacation with his family, we instantly knew we'd become good friends. What a sense of humour! The most difficult part was making all the arrangements in secret because the cruise was a surprise for his wife and kids.

Celebrating Christian and Muslim Cultures with Guests from the USA
This group travelled from the US, so we planned an itinerary that shows off the Turkish coast at its best. This route combined the tranquility of the Göcek Islands, the history (and mystery) of Gemiler Island, the spectacular colours of Ölüdeniz and the Blue Lagoon, and the excitement of an open water crossing - all in the space of 5 days!

Christening the Paddleboards with Guests from China
Our first guests of the 2019 season arrived at Easter! Only in the area for a few days before heading off to explore the rest of Turkey, they braved the cool weather and had the entire Göcek Islands virtually to themselves!
