Tour > Mediterranean Cruise in Turkey - 365 days

About the tour in general

Also known as “Anatolia”, Turkey is a unique country with its turquoise seas, crystal clear waters, paradise bays and beaches and amazing history, extremely cultural heritage, as well as traditional hospitality and rich cuisine. Besides that, with its land (97% in Asia and 3% in Europe) it is a bridge between Europe and Asia.

Whether you are an art and history hunter or a nature lover, different Regions of Turkey offer endless possibilities all year round and it is not surprising that one trip to Turkey will never be enough. Being home to many civilizations, Turkey has 10,000 years old heritage. Fascinating history with temples, ancient theatres, museums, churches, mosques palaces and ancient ruins take you to amazing past.

Caprinae Safaris offers you the unique opportunity to experience a luxury vacation with unforgettable memories on a 24-43 meter long sailing ship. You enjoy the days on cruise along beautiful bays along the Turkish Riviera.

This trip makes it possible to live a fascinating holiday with the whole family. Our boats have an average of 6 cabins, each with full air condition, WC, shower and double bed, so you can sleep onboard without any problems. An officially licensed, English-speaking interpreter and travel guide is at your service 24 hours, and will be happy to guide you through the amazing history of the local sites.

The trip starts at the harbour in Marmaris or Antalya and goes along the coast from bay to bay.  After several hours of cruising per day, anchors are dropped in a suitable bay. From there, you can have guided tours to antique sites or commit your time to the many leisure activities that are offered on the spot. Of course, it’s totally up to you decide what to do, and we will be eager to serve your wishes as best we can.

As there are many direct flights from Europe and USA to Istanbul-main gate of Turkey, you can easily book your flights to Istanbul first and then to Antalya (or Dalaman Airports).

If you would like us to do, once you arrive in Istanbul, we book the internal flights for you and fly you to South of Turkey; Antalya and if you would like to book all of your own flights until the last destination it is also convenient with us. You can easily get daily & many connections from Istanbul to Antalya (or Dalaman) airport.

After you arrive in South of Turkey, with luxury AC vehicles, we transfer you to the gullet boat where you will be accommodating during whole trip in amazing bays. 

Please notice that once you are in Istanbul, there will be always someone from us until you leave Turkey after your holiday. Therefore, from your arrival to departure hour, you are not alone and we take well care of you. 

Accommodation is full-board on the boat and we try to match our guests’ food preferences as well as possible. Please inform us beforehand about your general menu likes & dislikes. Of course, everything is made freshly for you and we would also be happy to serve you freshly caught fishes.
