A gulet cruise from either Bodrum or Marmaris is a great combination of sightseeing, swimming and, of course, cruising along one of the Mediterraneans most beautiful coastlines. Youll see picturesque coves and magnificent scenery and enjoy snorkelling, sunbathing and complete relaxation. Simple pleasures, no stress or strain and, above all, a wonderful feeling of getting away from it all. You can also combine a weeks gulet cruise with a week at one of JetSuns hotels.
The ultimate get-away-from-it-all holiday, a gulet cruise is a great way to explore Turkeys fabulous, Mediterranean coastline and enjoy the freedom and total relaxation which only an informal cruise can offer. As the gulets are small compared with large, ocean-going cruise ships, its the perfect holiday to make friends and enjoy the pleasures which only a small cruiser can offer.
Any time between May and October is a good time to take a gulet cruise although in early and late season there are fewer cruises taking place so the bays are more deserted, the ancient sites less crowded and, of course, its not as hot as July or August. Days are longer in May and June and the sea is warmer in September and October.
The crew comprises the captain and, usually, a cook and a deckhand. There are up to 8 small but comfortable double cabins, all with private sh/wc. Theres a sunbathing area with sun mattresses, a saloon / bar, a shaded afterdeck for meals and drinks, a music system, a galley, snorkels & flippers and a tender-boat.
There is no fixed itinerary and no two days are the same but a typical day will start with breakfast followed by a couple of hours cruising before dropping anchor in a bay for swimming, snorkelling and lunch. In the afternoon youll cruise again for a couple of hours and then stay the night either in a quiet bay or close to a harbour with, perhaps, the opportunity of going ashore. The cruise itinerary is always dependent on weather and operational conditions and is always subject to the captains approval.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included in the price and all meals are taken on the shaded afterdeck. Its simple but delicious cuisine and, unsurprisingly, always tastes better in the open air. Drinks are not included but can be purchased on board (theres usually a slate system whereby you pay for all drinks at the end of the cruise).
Shore excursions are organised by the captain and crew and are payable locally. They might include a visit to an ancient site or maybe a village to see some typical local life or even a trip to a larger town or resort for some retail therapy. Evening BBQs are also very popular
The only chance there is to enjoy a little nightlife will be at the beginning or end of the Gulet Cruise in either Bodrum or Marmaris. The same will apply to shopping although there is sometimes the opportunity to visit a small town during the cruise which may have a few shops or a market to browse around.
