If you’re looking for a truly relaxing and invigorating holiday, discovering the ancient sites, bays, coves and harbours of a range of countries in the Mediterranean, a gulet cruise will be the perfect choice for you.
Our Gulet Holidays
We offer the finest gulet tours with a cultural theme. Enjoy total relaxation, beautiful food, and superb swimming as well as archaeological, hiking or gastronomic adventures. We have a wide range of itineraries, from the fairy-tale Aeolian Islands in Sicily or the stunning Dalmatian Coast of Croatia to the popular Amalfi Coast or Northen Sardinia.
Life Aboard A Traditional Gulet
Our superb range of vessels have been carefully selected to ensure both comfort and the quality that you would expect. Every gulet can host groups from 2 to 10/12 people. On most of our trips we cruise for an average of three hours a day, generally by motor to keep to schedule under glorious sail when weather and time permits. There are plenty of opportunities for swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking.
Service on a gulet holiday is a prime consideration and we boast experienced captains and excellent cooks to make your adventure simply unforgettable. All food is prepared in the boat’s galley by the on-board cook, who conjures up a variety of fresh local delicacies.
Breakfast typically consists of bread, tomatoes, olives, cheese, eggs, yoghurt, cereals, fruit and honey. Lunch and dinner are usually one or two main courses, accompanied by salads and tasty side dishes, followed by fruit. Local wines are stocked on board, along with a range of spirits, beers, soft drinks and fruit juices.
The History Of Gulets
The word ’gulet‘ (Turkish gulet – aka gulette or gullet) is said to derive from the French goulette, or schooner. These two-masted wooden vessels, usually made from local pine, were long used for transport and fishing along the southern coasts of Turkey. Typically designed with a sharp bow, broad beam and rounded aft, these days they are designed and fitted with comfort and not trade in mind.
In addition to our scheduled cruises, we also arrange private trips for groups, large and small. We provide you with an expert guide and all logistical support and can tailor the itinerary to your wishes. What could be finer than exploring the Mediterranean with your family or some friends? We can customise a gulet cruise experience just for you.
