Blue Cruise is one of the best and most relaxing vacations you can ever have. It is both an adventure and relaxation for body and soul in most beautiful settings. You will escape all these pesky tourists that make you crazy, while you wish to enjoy at the hotel pool or at the beach. 

You will not have to change several buses or take a taxi or rent a car to check more places on your destination. You will stay on the gulet and your room and all your luggage will travel along with you. And maybe the most important thing, you will truly keep in touch with nature.

With blue voyage, you will get to explore all the hidden gems that you wouldn’t be able to visit during regular holidays on land.

Gulet cruising has a long history that originated from Turkey from where Blue Voyage developed and now it is a unique type of holiday. Cevat Şakir Kabaağaçlı known as the ‘Fisherman of Halicarnassus’ was the Founder of Turkey’s famous Mavi Yolculuk “BLUE VOYAGES”. A historian, humanist and ecologist, he was one of the country’s most popular writers and has been described as a modern Homer. He was known also as Turkey’s first professional tourist guide. This how one of the most beautiful and attractive ways to discover Turkey and Greek island has been created. During the cruise, you’ll have a special opportunity to explore stunning beautiful places, wake up each day on a different location.

To name some of the best benefits Blue cruise can offer you:

  • you can jump from the gulet directly to the sea
  • you can check some of the most amazing spots, bays, and places, which you can never see if you stay in some hotel
  • you do not have to walk to the beach – the beach is always there with you
  • you are traveling only in the company of your best friends only (and the crew of course)
  • you do not have to cook, clean or worry about any logistics
