  •  Turkish Riviera: Travel extensively to one of the reputed sailing directions of Turkey, which rivulets from the vivacious Istanbul to the splendid port town of Marmaris on the enigmatic coast of Turkish Riviera. While sailing, you might be lucky enough to witness one of the gracious and surreal Mediterranean coastlines of Turkey.

Get fueled up and energetic before venturing out on an exciting sailing adventure.
  • Karacaoren: After Fethiye, it’s time for stopping by yet another admirable port, famously known as Karacaoren. Rejuvenate yourself and let your cracked up nerves calm down with this soothing yachting. You can also engage in some fun water activities like snorkeling or kayaking in this uninhabited bay. The clear blue sparkling water will surely bring in the peace and contentment in your mind which you had missed in your city life. After sailing, visit some of the renowned eateries of Turkey to relish on their traditional dishes.
  • Cold water Bay: Other than sailing, this place is an exquisite location for underwater diving and swimming. Getting refreshed has never felt this good! The radiant water of this bay is cooling and exhilarating, making you stress-free and relaxed. You can then sail on to the enchanted town of Kayakoy to experience some unnerving moments.
