Discover the ancient wonders of Mediterranean on a private gulet cruise

On this archaeological gulet cruise in Turkey, we cruise along the magnificent Lycian Coast of Turkey and explore the beautiful ancient sites with stunning landscape.

Meals are prepared on board and will give you a chance to experience the best of Turkish cuisine. Every day we anchor in a beautiful cove with stunning scenery and enjoy our swim or walk in land.

The southern coast of Turkey was called Lycia in ancient times. Ancient writers and historians mentioned Lycian people many times. The mediterranean Sea is one of the oldest sailing routes in the world and was the center of ancient maritime trade. The ruins and ancient sites situated in Lycia are among the most attractive antiquities on Anatolian soil. Here monuments dating from the 5th and 4th centuries BC. stand side by side with buildings, tombs and sancturies of Hellenisitc and Roman period. The archaeological sites are often in picturesque settings of great natural beauty. Especially fascinating are rock-cut tombs of various types, dating from the 5th century BC. to the Roman period.

Our archaeological gulet cruise in Turkey begins and ends in Gocek, famous yacht harbour in Turkey. We cruise along the Mediterranean coast and explore the fascinating civilization of ancient Lycia.This area consists of a rugged Mediterranean coastline with numerous bays and inlets. This coast is also called the "Turquoise Coast" due to the beauty of the water and scenery.

We drive inland to see Xanthus, (the great capital of ancient Lycia) and Patara (the birthplace of St. Nicholas). We see the sunken ruins of Kekova Island and walk up to medieval castle of ancient Simena. (Kale village). We also hike Gemiler Island (St. Nicholas Island) to see the Byzantine churches with frescoes. We visit Kas, a beautiful charming Mediterraean town with small harbour and white houses. Every day there are plenty of opportunities to swim in the blue waters of the Turquoise coast. One of the best ways to see the ancient Lycian sites is a private gulet cruise in Turkey.

Hi Aykut,
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! All of us had an incredible time on our gulet trip in Turkey. Thank you so much for such an amazing trip. We loved the boat, we loved the food, we loved your enthusiasm for the incredible and rich history of Turkey. We all learned so much and enjoyed all of the stories that you shared with us. Everything was so seamless and easy - from being picked up at the airport, to the van pick-ups that took us to some of the sites, to the fabulous food, wine, swimming, kayaking, to getting us back to the airport at the end. I know you were working, but I do hope that you had as much fun as we did.We all really enjoyed getting to know you and everyday was a real treat. The kids had a ball as well - especially swimming and the day that we went to the abandoned Greek village - they loved that! They also enjoyed all of the ice creams, tea, nutella, crepes and scarves that were sold on the boat! If anyone is considering a trip with you, I would be happy to speak with them and share more information about how great our experience was!!Tesekkür ederim.
