Fethiye – Muğla – TurkeyCarnation Cruising built on 2003 in Fethiye, Turkey. First charter yacht ‘Black Carnation’ has been in daily, overnight and weekly trips on first season.

We bought ‘Red Carnation’ Yacht at the end of the successful season and start to 2004 blue cruise season with two yachts. ‘Carnation Cruising’ wish to be best of the blue cruising. We don’t want to sell cabin. We expect family and friendly grubs for enjoyable and comfortable holidays with delicious Turkish foods.

If you hear about Turkey, you will also have information about Ölüdeniz. Цlьdeniz is one of the most beautiful lagoons in the world. Closed to the waves of the high seas, the water hardly stirs there. On the way to Ölüdeniz, there are attractive districts covered with pine trees, at distance of 6 kilometers from Fethiye. One of them is Hisarцnь. Hisarönü can be reached by road leading to the Ölüdeniz to the right just after Ovacık. In Ovacık and Hisarönü there are numerous hotels, boarding houses and holiday villages. Hisarönü is an ideal spot for those seeking to spend holiday in nature among the pine trees, close to the sea.

A gulet is a traditional handmade wooden boat equipped with masts. The most common gulets have 6 to 8 double cabins and so accommodate max.12 to 16 passengers. Unlike cruises on large ocean liners, on a gulet you can explore the secluded and often deserted bays, coves and islands of the spectacular Turkish coastline. You will see a hidden Turkey, beautiful beyond belief, and most of it completely unseen by the average tourist! During the day there are plenty of chances to swim and snorkel in the clear blue waters or explore the natural and historical sites along the way.

Features of a gulet include an interior salon/bar area and a fully equipped galley. All cabins have en-suite with hot and cold running water. There are 1 or 2 sundecks with comfortable sunbeds and a canopied aft deck with cushioned seating,freezers to keep drinks cold, and a CD/cassette player. The gulets come with facilities for outdoor and indoor dining. Also a dinghy with outboard, a ship-to-shore radio,mobile telephone and life jackets are on board. All the boats are government approved with fully qualified captains. No experience of boats is required. All you need to do is relax!

The Blue Voyage is the surest way to get rid of all of your blues, but that is not really how the name was coined… Originated in Bodrum in the late 1950’s by groups of writers, painters, and others interested in natural beauty and historical sites, the Blue Voyage started in the Gulf of Gökova and later extended to include the more distant southern shores of Turkey.

A crewed yacht charter is the hire of a complete yacht, with captain and crew, for a specific period of time (usually one or more weeks). The route of the cruise is subject to agreement between the contracting parties,as are the ports of embarkation and disembarkation. The charter fee does not include the cost of food but does include its preparation and service.

    I found your blog via Google blog search while searching for Yachts and your post regarding “CARNATION CRUISING BLUE VOYAGE TOUR” looks very interesting to me and it is also very creative. I have a few Yachts websites of my own and I must say that your blog is really good. Keep up the great work on a really high class resource.

    I always tell my friends that this world of ours has many places where you can relax. One of these places is naturally the seas and the oceans. Yachts are perfect for individuals who have a love of speed and resilience to traverse across these passageways. For this reason the various big yachts are the perfect choice. You will find that these yachts have many different facilities, living spaces and equipment to help you with your travels. Once you have found the right type of yacht for you all that remains is to make sure that you have the various items on board. You are now ready to head off into the sunset.
