Private yacht hire in Turkey is about spending quality time with your friends, family, loved ones, or simply alone. Your journey takes you to exciting destinations where you have the opportunity to explore remnants of history from past civilizations, and be where emperors once stood and conquered. It is also a cultural discovery. Between the countries of Turkey and Greece, there is so much of ancient culture, traditions, savory cuisine and more that makes the whole yacht cruise so unique. You may meet new people, experience different traditions and acquire interesting souvenirs that make it all the more memorable.
So it’s not just about being pampered by warm and friendly smiles, or even going for a swim in the cool refreshing sea. It also isn’t about playing with all the water toys on board, or sunning under the relaxing sun of the Mediterranean; and its certainly not about soaking in a rejuvenating luxury jacuzzi on deck with panoramic views of nature at its best – it’s more.
You can hire a yacht in Turkey to venture to the Greek Islands; such as Rhodes, Santorini, Mykonos, Kos or others. But if you just want to cruise within the waters of the Turkish Riveria, you could do that too. Visiting the famous Oludeniz in Fethiye, and the 12 islands of Gocek are popular places of interest. So are the thrilling nightlife of Bodrum harbor and the peaceful and charming villages of Marmaris. The alternatives are endless!
The luxury yacht cruises are most popular on Turkish yachts called gulets. These elegantly designed and quite traditionally characteristic of Turkey begin offering their blue cruises in May and they go on until the end of September. Then they go in for maintenance and a refit to get ready for another exciting gulet season.
The peak season is from July to August. This is where the temperatures in southern Turkey go as high as 50+ ° celcius. In May and September the temperatures are in the mid to high 20′s; and in the low to high 30′s in June. As it takes time for the sea to warm up, usually suitable during beginning in the first week of July, it stays warm right up until the end of September. There are those who do go in the water in October. But it’s a bit cooled down then. So ideally, if you are not keen on hot hot weather, September is a perfect time for a private yacht hire in Turkey!
