Crewed Yacht Charter Cruising on the Turquoise coast and to the Dodecanese islands.

Clapotis-Mer cruise services offer exclusive yacht charter holidays on board luxury, fully equipped and crewed traditional wooden gulet yachts sailing from Marmaris or Bodrum along the Turkish Riviera and to the Dodecanese, the nearest group of Greek islands to Turkey's southwest shore. The largest yachts can accommodate private groups of families and friends of up to twenty four persons. The Turkish Riviera also known as the Turquoise coast is a long stretch of coastline along the southwest of Turkey with scenic mountains, green pine forests and fine beaches. It is one of the most popular holiday destinations for its blue cruises, also known as gulet voyages and cultural shore excursions that include two of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

The Turquoise Coast was part of the ancient Lycia, whose archeological remains are numerous. The Aegean coast of Turkey abounds in curiosities and wonders. Oludeniz's Blue Lagoon is a fabulous cruising destination in the south of Fethiye with wonderful beaches and historic sights. For a longer gulet yacht charter, you can visit the picturesque village of Ucagiz and the remains of a sunken ancient city on Kekova island. The beautiful wild beaches of Cirali and Olympos are located on the Turkish Riviera in the southwest of Antalya. Myre is an ancient city of Lycia, occupied today by the Turkish city of Demre, where the Church of St. Nicholas was built in the fourth century.

Combining a cruise on the Turquoise coast with the Dodecanese Greek islands is probably one of the most enjoyable sailing experiences in the Mediterranean. Like its Greek island neighbours, Turkey's southwest coast has long-lasting and sunny summers, beautiful coves with sandy beaches and clear turquoise waters.
