The experience of a Gulet Sail and Mets Yachting Blue Voyage can be a time to rejuvenate the spirit while you discover and experience more of the natural world. It can be a spiritual adventure as well as a worldly one.
If you are a history lover, the Blue Voyage can take you to the wealth and power of bygone civilisations and ancient cultures. It can be an overwhelming experience to visit the private beach of Cleopatra, eternal fires of mount Olympos, Myria Rock Tombs, archaeological remains of ancient civilisations on land and under the sea around Fethiye.
On a Blue Voyage, you can leave behind the world of routines imposed on you by modern life and responsibilities. Most of us live out our lives in large cities where the city lights dull the brightness of the stars. On a Blue Voyage, while you lay out on deck at night, you can see all the stars as you hear and feel the lapping of the water against your boat.
In the rush of city life it is possible to loose perspective on the value of health, rest,
and relaxation. One a Blue Voyage, everything you hear, smell, taste, see, feel, and live can excite the mind and bring peace to the soul.
If your voyage coincides with the full moon you will be astounded by the it’s size and magnificence lighting up the night sky. Slipping into the dark water for a night swim after a hot day can be a treat in it’s own right. The peaceful quiet waters will cool you down for a restful and healthful night’s sleep.
Snorkeling along the brilliant coastlines in the noon day sun alongside the fish of many colours is another treat everyone can enjoy.
After a week or two afloat in this scenic wonderland, old and young alike find their own treasures and gifts… and will have many opportunities to revel in our healthy and happy environment.
What are kind of tours are available?
We offer two basic boating experiences. For the more experienced and licensed sailor and crew who are looking for an independent adventure with a minimum of guidance we offer a variety of bare boat rentals.
If you are looking for a fully guided, planned, and crewed adventure we can provide you with a traditional wooden sailing yacht which you can charter with a crew who will take care of your every need. Depending on the size of the yacht and the number of cabins available we generally book groups of between 8 and 14 people. A group of 8 people, for example, would probably take a yacht with 4 cabins. We can provide boats with as many as 10 cabins. If you are coming on your own without a group we offer single room bookings on chartered touring yachts in the location of your choice.
Between both ends of the yachting opportunity spectrum we offer bare boat rentals with a skipper as your host and guide… or any combination of the above. What ever you can imagine, we will do our best to provide.
Which season is the best?
Between the end of July and the beginning of September is height of our main sailing season. July and August are days are long and hot. The nights are warm. June, the beginning of July, and the month of September offer the combination of warm days and cooler evenings. The water is great for swimming until the end of October. The months of May and October are excellent for trekking and fishing.
How can we spend our time?
There will be many opportunities for water sports and activities, sightseeing. During the day you can cruise for a few hours and sail if the wind allows. Closer to lunch and dinner the anchor is dropped in a solitary bay or inlet, alongside a small village, or find a mooring off a small island. At every stop, and there will be at least two every day depending on your preferences, there will be opportunities to swim, fish, snorkel, windsurf, sun bathe, or take a trip ashore to see the sights or to read on the sun-beds on deck. There will be lots of recreation and relaxation. Your friendly and attentive crew can consist of a captain, cook, and a couple of seamen. Their job is to make sure that your are taken care of and that your needs are well met.
