Turkish Gulet FAQ

Gulets are heavy, stable boars generally preventing seasickness from becoming an issue, and creating a smooth ride,

What all is included in the price of the gulet?

The price to travel on the gulet goes toward paying for fuel, the captain and crew, required fees for sailing, water and laundry services on the yacht, services for the agency in which you purchased from, and equipment. The cost of food and beverage are charged separately. If you wish to take on-shore excursions or partake in transfers, additional fees are often required.

 

When is the best time to book a gulet in Turkey?

Many companies recommend taking gulets anytime from May to October, however, it is important to keep in mind that July and August are the hottest months with temperatures ranging from 86 to 100℉. May, June, September, and October often have warmer days and cool or breezy evenings.

 

Will it be a smooth ride? Is seasickness a potential issue?

Because gulets are heavy, stable boats, seasickness is not generally an issue. Additionally, most gulets do not cruise into the open sea where the water is rougher. However, if you are prone to motion sickness, you may take precautions to avoid symptoms. 

 

Do gulets cruise at night?

Night schedules vary based on the gulet and chosen route, however, many gulets do not cruise at night with guests on board. These particular gulets will be docked by dinner.

 

Can disabled guests enjoy gulets?

All disabled guests and guests with mobility restrictions can enjoy these excursions. All of the ramps to board the ship are wide and have handrails, and most of the gulets have just a few steps from the deck down. Additionally, you should always notify your captain or crew if you have any particular concerns regarding a member of your party.

 

Is the sea safe?

The water does contain different sea creatures, such as jellyfish and sea urchins, all of which are easy to avoid in the crystal clear water. Additionally, most of them cling to the rocks toward the ocean floor. Otherwise, Turkish waters are very secure and safe both generally and for swimming.
