Turkish coast

Each idyllic bay you stop to moor in along these ancient coastlines seems more stunning than the last. Days are spent at your leisure; swimming whenever you feel like it, sunbathing on board, snorkelling, paddle-boarding, or trying out some water sports. Lounge areas on deck will offer the perfect shady spot for reading or a game of backgammon. Venture to shore once in a while and take a hike, or explore the pretty villages and marinas that your itinerary can also include. In the evenings savour long dinners served on deck under the stars. The original Turkish Blue Cruise route begins in Bodrum and heads south-east through the glittering turquoise waters, dramatic horizons and serene bays of the Gokova Gulf. Our range of itineraries also explores further along the coast to include Marmaris and the Gulf of Hisaronu, where the Aegean meets the Mediterranean waters, and beyond, as far as Antalya including the historic hotspots of Kas and Kalkan. You may also include the Greek Islands in your itinerary, and experience these closely related but distinctly unique regions in one trip.

The most popular cruising areas along the Turkish Riviera, are located on the south-west coast stretching east between the towns of Bodrum and Antalya. Along this beautiful and intricate coastline there are literally thousands of bays and secluded coves for anchorage.

During your cruise, you can lose yourselves in the real peace and privacy of life on board; in some places you even have the luxury of being the only yacht around. If you’d like to explore and see a bit more action, we can work stops at some of the villages and small marinas into your route too. Here you’ll have the chance to lunch or dine on land, do some shopping, visit bars and taste the local nightlife, as well as spend time discovering some of the region’s many fascinating ancient sites dating back thousands of years. Our team is here to design an itinerary that caters to the interests of you and your group. Together we personalise your cruise so it is just as you dream it to be.

​On your arrival and departure we arrange private chauffeured car or small bus transfers for you and your group. The usual embarkation and disembarkation points for our yacht charter itineraries are:

Bodrum is a 35 minute drive from Bodrum Int. Airport (BJV)

Greek islands

dodecanese greek islands - cyclades greek islands - ionian greek coast

Cruise hopping the Greek islands with the yacht of your choice allows you to enjoy the luxury, privacy and freedom to create your very own Greek island experience. Your itinerary can include everything from peaceful secluded bays to jet-set hot spots such as Mykonos or Santorini. Whether you want to enjoy the islands’ cosmopolitan ambience, seek out the wilder less-travelled spots, or simply relax on board, you will be spoiled by crewed service, fantastic cuisine, and chance to avoid the fixed itinerary approach of mass cruise holidays. Our professional crews include excellent chefs, housekeeping, and experienced sailors who ensure that your yacht charter in Greece is the ultimate in both privacy and luxury. Simply make yourself at home, relax into the laid back rhythm of life on board, and soak in the vistas and summer breezes of the diverse and beautiful Greek islands.

The Dodecanese Islands

Including Samos, Patmos, Arki, Lipsi, Leros, Pserimos,  Kalymnos, Kos, Nisiros, Tilos, Halki, Symi & Rhodes

Best Times
: Mid April – end of October

The Dodecanese
(from dodeca, meaning 12) is formed by a graceful crescent chain of islands stretching towards Crete in the southeastern edge of the Aegean Sea. Most of the 12 main islands (there are also about 150 smaller ones, many completely wild) have a very laid-back ambience and offer a less tourist-centric experience than many of the more visited Greek Islands. Diverse landscapes, steeped in the traces of ancient history, are characterised by dramatic rugged terrain and expanses of unimaginably crystal-clear blue waters, fringed by sandy and pebble beaches. This cruise promises a mesmerizing blend of rustic beauty and serene seclusion; islands such a Pserimos and Leros are perfect for those seeking to really retreat, while larger islands such as Kos and Rhodes offer a more cosmopolitan atmosphere with vibrant towns and a buzzing nightlife.

The beauty of yacht charter is that you are based on board in the exclusive space of your yacht with your group. At each anchorage or harbour you get to decide to explore more on shore, or pass and relax on board until pulling anchor and cruising on to the next destination and a whole new discovery experience.

The Cyclades Islands

Including Siros, Sifnos, Sikinos, Folegandros, Ios, Santorini, Naxos, Mykonos, Paros, and  Amorgos

Best Times
: May, June, September, October

The Cyclades have two primary colors, the characteristic white and blue, which is reflected in the now iconic traditional white-washed, blue-domed architecture and rustic cobbled streets, well known to many just from the photos. Fringed with fantastic beaches, these islands are all fairly close to one another, so cruising between them doesn’t take long and each day you will be exploring a new place with a different ambience to discover; some off-the-beaten track, others glitzy international hotspots, while always tangible is the authentic Greek experience with mountain villages, local distilleries, and a laid-back local island lifestyle.

Among the most famous of the Cyclades is Mykonos, with its windmills, pristine villages, and glamourous beach club and nightlife. The photogenic Santorini is also a very popular  destination known to be touristy but not to be missed for its volcanic red pebble beaches, stunning sheer white cliffs and incredible views.

Named after the Greek, kyklos, meaning circle, the islands in this cluster form a circle around the sacred island of Delos. According to myth, Apollo and Artemis were born here, and the ancient temples here are a must-see.

With all their popularity and well known picture post-card beauty, many of the islands  are uninhabited and wild which means there are plenty of secluded and supremely peaceful places to anchor giving you a bit of everything on your Cyclades adventure.

The Ionian Islands

Including Corfu, Syvota, Parga, Paxos, Antipaxos, Kefalonia, Zakynthos

Best Times
: May, June, September, October

The Ionian Islands are located south-west of mainland Greece. Here you’ll experience a much more European feel, due partly to their verdant green landscapes, but also a strong Italian influence which is reflected in architecture, culture and local cuisine. Explore these 7 islands for an unspoilt peace and tranquility quite different to the Dodecanese and Cyclades.

Corfu, perhaps the best known and the most romantic and lush of the Ionian Islands, has inspired writers and poets for over a thousand years. Despite its popularity the magic remains in its remote mountain villages, glorious bays and beaches, and rich architectural and archaeological heritage.

The islands further south feature incredibly beautiful and clean beaches. Paxos (and its twin Antipaxos), the Island of Olive Groves, is a real retreat, and because of its calcareous rocks is characterised by its amazing milky turquoise water. In the west Lefkada, the White Island, has immaculate beaches and turquoise waters backed by rugged mountains soaring above fertile valleys, pine forests, and a rural tradition of centuries lives on in unspoilt villages amongst vineyards and olive groves. Meganisi also offers an abundance of quiet secluded bays, ideal for anchorages. While exploring Kefalonia, the largest, busiest and most visited of the Ionian Islands, the unique underground lake Melissani is not to be missed. 

On arrival and departure for all our Greek Island private yacht charter itineraries, we arrange private chauffeured car or small bus transfers for you and your group. The usual embarkation and disembarkation points are:

Bodrum is a 35 minute drive from Bodrum Int. Airport (BJV)

Gocek is a 25 minute drive from Dalaman Int. Airport (DLM)
