ARCADIA YACHTING BLUE VOYAGE TOUR

August 19, 2006

Bodrum – Muğla – Turkey

The Blue Voyage is a crewed yacht charter, cruising along Turkey’s Aegean and Mediterranean coast with traditional built wooden yachts, called Gulet’s. It is an ideal way to explore Turkeys unspoiled southwest coast line, with its rocky peninsulas, sandy coves and islands. It is an area rich in historical remains.

Today Blue Voyages, have grown to an important part of Turkish tourism delighting thousands of tourists every year. Since then the humble and small boats of old days changed without losing their special character to the Gulets of defined standards as well in the comfortable and spacious cabins as on deck.

Blue Voyages represent an unique possibility to do several things together and combine different activities (even different holidays!) in one. Cevat Sakir and his friend’s aim in these voyages was, while enjoying the natural geographical beauties of the coast lines, to discover antique monuments and remains of the various and rich Anatolian civilizations at the same time… And indeed they discovered such historic places, which were only accessible from the sea. Do like he did and discover on his traces the new and unknown!

Or just let the others do it and enjoy sun and sea. Swim through the crystal-water-bays, do water sports, climb the hills offshore and visit remote villages. Or be lazy on deck with your favorite book and learn to extend time… Many participants of Blue Voyages told in accordance that they felt full of new energies and like reborn after one of these trips…. which explains the number of people addicted to this kind of holidays.

The Yacht Charter provides the opportunity of seeing the archeological remains of ancient civilisations like Knidos, Kaunos, Myria, Kekova, Phaselis etc. Many of them on the coast (and even under sea).

Compared with vacations in hotels a Blue Voyage opens new horizons in the sense of the word. First of all every day view and environments are changing and a new bay or island is waiting for you. There are many excursions and sightseeings on shore to be done. Our experienced captain and his crew will have the pleasure to take you to all these places.

Private Yacht Charter
Private Yacht Charter is when the yacht is rented by a group or a person privately..We believe that private charter is the best of all ways to catch the spirit of Blue Voyage. First of all, you have the chance to share the boat just with people you know. Then you are setting up program and route along your own preferences. Nowadays Blue voyage vacations are not only in use for business, family and other circle of friends and acquaintances but in use for other aims. If we list in order ;

Small business meetings and seminaries, To reward managers and franchisers, Education in Paintings, music and other art branches, Language courses, Honeymoon and marriage ceremonies, And more… Blue Voyage creates a perfect atmosphere and opportunity for such activities.

Advantages of Yacht Charter
Only you and your friends take part, you are not being together with people you don’t know. Your menu is special. You decide about menu and meals. There is no determined route before. Wherever you want to go you go. Wherever you want to stay longer you have chance to stay. You don’t have to give an effort for something; your team is preparing everything for you. You are in the hands of a Captain and crew whose occupation is tourism.

Life on Board
Modern Gulets are like swimming hotels. They are equipped with everything a visitor can expect. Most of the boats have air-conditioning and all comfort in their spacious cabins. And of course the large decks, where you will spend most of your journey, invite you to have sunbath, recreation and gorgeous meals.

When you wake up in the morning we propose you to swim in the clear waters of a natural bay; if you wish you can start a day with diving. With these magnificent bays, clean air and beauties of the landscape around you will be appetizing. You won’t forget our excellent breakfasts in that setting! Then you may swim again, do some surfing or discover the nearby countryside. Or your Gulet reaches out for new shores.

Usually everyone finds his/her favorite holidays on our ships, may he/she be sportive, discoverer, adventurer or a modern Diogenes in search of dйtente. Most of our Gulets are equipped with snorkels, flippers, canoe or surfboard. If you wish you might try your chance to fish, and if you catch some your cook on board will be very pleased to prepare them for you.

Short trips to many kind of antique places are well known parts of Blue Voyages, to take a walk and discover many cultures are an ideal supplement to your relaxing hours. Our experienced captain and the crew will show these places with pleasure. We propose as well to meet the population of some villages and learn something about their culture and traditions. Again our crew will be ready to bring you there.

After sunset another romantic face of Blue Voyage appears: Our dinners beyond moon and starlight provide a very particular and unforgettable ambiance. Cooks did there job to enchant you with the joys of Turkish and Mediterranean kitchen, drinking wine or traditional Raki the hours pass with conversations, and not few of them end under the sudden shine of a falling star.

Some Suggested Itineraries For Private Gulet Charters
The coastline of the southwest corner of Turkey is one of the most beautiful cruising grounds in the world. A cruising environment rich in natural or historical attractions, safe anchorages within easy reach of each other, a constant breeze fo fill the sails and a fair certainty that the sun will shine for your holiday. Good food, fresh fruits and vegetables. Clear Unpolluted waters. Hospitalable locals and, if and when the wilderness gets too oppressive, the opportunity to have a night on the town.

Most yachting havens in the world offer one or more of these to the yacht vacationer. Very few can present all. Turkey is one of the very few that has even more to give: Over 3000 years of history and culture in a land where orient merges with the Occident.

The old town with its tiny harbour is charming and an oasis of beauty most unexpected in such a large city. The Antalya Region is now called the “Turkish Riviera” because of the wealth of archeological sites and the easy access to many natural beauty spots. The ancient sites of Perge, Aspendos and Termessos are close by, as are national parks, waterfalls and spectacular caves.

MARMARIS
The location of Marmaris, near the airport at Dalaman, makes it another ideal starting point for your cruise. Marmaris, originally ancient Physicus was on the Anatolia – Rhodes – Egypt trading route in olden times and became a large and prosperous city because of it. Today it is a mixture of the old town with very modern hotels lining the beaches. Locals and holiday makers alike take a turn along the promenade to look at all the classical wooden Gulettes moored up to the town quay.

The beaches in this area are beautiful white sand and make an impressive white barrier between the crystal clear blue sea and the lush greenery of the pine forests that reach down to the waters edge. The mountains behind Marmaris make a wonderful back drop to this picturesque little town. Marmaris has excellent marinas and the diverse shopping opportunities make it a good choice for either starting or ending your cruise.

BODRUM
Bodrum-Turkey. The ideal place to start or finish your charter cruise. Bodrum has long been the boatbuilding center of Turkey and has an excellent marina plus many anchorages to sail to within easy distance. Bodrum is indisputably the most well known of all the Turkish resorts for many reasons.

Bodrum is a bustling market town by day and by night it has an extensive range of discos, restaurants and night clubs to suit every taste.

The cultural centre of the coast with the Castle of St John, Bodrum is also the location of one of the Seven Wonders of the World : The Mausoleum. The castle houses the Museum of Underwater Archeology which is well worth a visit as is the amphitheatre overlooking the town and harbour, surly one of the most photographed views in Turkey. This view from the amphitheatre overlooks the Castle and the Bay full of traditional wooden Gulettes and the marina with a mixture of Classical and Modern yachts.
