Captain & the Crew
There's no need for you to be an experienced yachtsman. You don't need to know port from starboard in order to have an unforgettable holiday on one of the yachts. Although of course you can always take a turn at the wheel...
Your captain and crew are experienced seafarers, usually local Turkish people, who know the cruising grounds in and out and will share their knowledge and skill with you. You can leave all the technicalities in the capable hands of your skipper and your crew.
In addition to running the cruise safely and according to the itinerary, they will try to assist and pamper you in every way, from suggesting suitable anchorages and arranging shore excursions, to serving you drinks and three delicious meals a day.
Having a meal under the stars, whilst the sea is gently lapping the sides of the boat is an experience not to be missed.
For anyone who enjoys a changing view each day and is prepared for the many moods of Mother Nature, a holiday on a gulet is the perfect medicine!
Knowledge of English among your Turkish crew members varies. You may like to take a small traveler's dictionary along with you for the cruise. Besides being understood more easily, it is also a great way of picking up a few words of Turkish and a way to get into the Turkish culture a little more.
