Mediterranean Cruises

Mediterranean Yacht Cruises Video

The Mediterranean may not be the first place you would consider to charter a yacht.  But, on the Turkish Rivera there is a coastal  town with cosmopolitan charms called Marmaris, which just twenty years ago was a small fishing village.  Today they have a beautiful harbor boasting of several yachts that are available to charter.  Hiring one of the many Mediterranian cruises available easily venture out into the majestic Mediterranean Sea and explore the many islands, bays and historical villages.

Bodrum Gokova Yacht Cruises offers people the chance to snorkel, sightsee, swim, or simply lie in the sun and enjoy some peace and quiet. The great thing about this particular turkey cruise is that you have two unique options. The first is that you can actually hire the entire yacht. Therefore, for large corporations or people who have a high budget, this would be an option. Otherwise, there are beautiful cabins aboard the yacht to enjoy from three to five days.

Marmaris Fethiye Yacht Cruises
Another option for Turkey cruises is with Marmaris Fethiye Yacht Cruises. One of the great areas to visit is called the Balearic Islands. Located in the western region, this group of islands includes Cabrera, Formentera, Ibiza, Mallorca, and Minorca, all fantastic destinations, especially for couples wanting a romantic cruise.

Since Marmaris yacht charters are centrally located on the coast of Turkey you can head out in almost any direction and visit many historical sites in the towns and villages dotting the coast.  Turkey is such a historically rich area filled with interesting archeological discoveries. If you are a Bible buff, you might enjoy visiting some of the regions and islands that the Apostle Paul traveled to and linger awhile ashore and meet descendants of the people he was writing about. You may want to dock in one of the harbors and go on a tour of some of the cave churches and underground cities created by Christians fleeing persecution in the 7th and 8th centuries.  There are also interesting natural geological formations that have been created by volcanoes.  There are several open air museums describing when and how these caves were dug and how the volcanic formations came into being.

Before booking your trip it is always wise to read personal testimonies online from travelers that may have used one of the Marmaris yacht charters.  These online sites will more than likely have resumes of the crew you will hire as well.  You may want to do some research on the area and let your captain know what activities you may want to do or sites you may want to see.  At that time you can let the captain know if you have any special food needs or limitations.  This will make your trip at sea more enjoyable, comfortable and memorable.
