The closeness of the small group of people on board promotes the ambiance of friendship and sharing; relations amongst passengers and crew tend to be relaxed and casual. Unlike cruises on large ocean liners, on a gulet you can search the secluded and often deserted bays and coves of the coastline. Usually the daily duration of cruising is not longer than 3-4 hours, and the rest of the day can be spent in a beautiful cove enjoying the sun and the sea. Sunbathing on the deck, swimming in clear waters, snorkeling, windsurfing, water-skiing or just fishing… The boats will sail (winds permitting) or motor along your chosen route. There are a variety of itineraries to follow depending on your taste. Blue Cruise Fethiye Kekova Fethiye on a Turkish Gulet.
