Turkish Gulet Planning Tips

Luxury Turkish gulets offer a relaxing getaway with unique opportunities to see Turkey in a new way.

Planning a trip on a Turkish Gulet, it is important to find the best gulet to fit the needs of you and your party.

Finding the gulet that best suits your party is part of formulating the best possible trip. Many gulets have variations in style and accessibility or layout. Some guests prefer multiple master cabins, some need space for children or multiple beds to a room. Many guests also request less deck space and more space for living, handicap accessibility, more activities. The possibilities are nearly endless. Go ahead and make those special requests to create the best experience for your party.

Keep the food variations in mind when deciding on a menu for your trip. Often, guests make the mistake of spending more money on the gulet and don’t put enough of their budget toward the food. The meals you eat as you see some of the most incredible views on the water may affect how you feel about the overall trip. You won’t forget the meals you shared during your time sailing, while you may forget the dimensions of your chosen gulet.

Be sure to choose a gulet based on the adventures you want to pursue. If there are certain places you want to stop at and explore, it is important to make sure your captain and crew are knowledgeable on the areas you want to see. Doing so will not only allow you the opportunity to explore the area, but also receive advice on where to go and what to do.

Allow yourself to focus on affordability. Gulets have many price variations, and many Turkish owners are willing to be flexible with their pricing. You may run into a few questionable offers here and there that are noticeably low. Make sure to investigate prices if they are significantly lower than other offers of similar styles. Additionally, it is important to understand that much of the price of your trip pays for services such as food, fuel, captain and crew, and more.

Southern Cross Blue Cruising gives multiple quotes for some of our favorite charters. Owners, Dina and Dave do an excellent job advocating for your best interest with each crew and captain. Fresh produce is handpicked and the smaller details (which often can end up making the biggest difference), are meticulously checked and prepared before departure.
