Turkey, decorated with very jagged coasts, is one of the most favourable countries to carry out a blue voyage. The boats, designed for that purpose, are roomy with double cabins, shower and toilet in each cabin and a hall/bar galley. However, they are not boats of luxury. You can also find matresses and cushions on the deck for your comfort.

An experienced crew watch over you and deal with all the daily chores like cooking, washing the dishes, cleaning of the deck and cabins, etc...The departures are usually set early in the morning,so it enables you to make full benefit of the day. The programs are organized to balance the day and night,where you experience the culture during the day, heaven and its wonders during the night.

The blue voyage will give you a chance to discover places that have remained inaccessible for a long time, free of any pollution. Will you not set sail with us?
