What is the Blue Cruise?
The Blue Cruise is the best way to get rid of all your blues,
but that is not really how the name was coined...
The name originated in Bodrum in the late 1950's by a group of writers, painters, and others interested in natural beauty and historical sites. The Blue Voyage started in the Gulf of Gokova and later extended to include the more distant southern shores of Turkey.
With over 8,333 kilometres of coastline and four seas, Turkey is a real treasure chest of coves, inlets, bays and beaches.
Unlike cruises on large ocean liners, on a Turkish gulet you can explore the secluded and often deserted bays, coves and islands of the spectacular Turkish coastline. You will see a hidden Turkey, beautiful beyond belief, and most of it completely unseen by the average tourist!
A Blue Cruise combines sun, sea, history and hikes at various cruise destinations. You can either relax in your swimming suit all day long, enjoy the good food and the sunshine, or you can experience more exciting activities like snorkelling, fishing, water skiing, banana rides or exploring the natural and historical sites.
Sailing in Turkey allows you to experience a truly enriching cultural exchange with the hospitable and gracious people of the coastal villages and towns. The small harbours and settlements offer an intimate view of coastal life which large ships cannot replicate authentically. In many ways a gulet is like a full-service hotel where every room has a sea view and the scenery changes constantly!
