Yacht Charter Itineraries in Turkey
There are are endless options but we will simply suggest some excellent alternatives based on our knowledge and experience of the Area.
The Weather is beautiful with the best times to visit being before July and August and September when you get the European families on vacation. Not to mention that July and August are very very hot. June is a great month to go and so is September and October when the water is still warm enough for swimming.
HOW TO GET TO THE AREA
You can travel via the Istanbul, Turkey route, then take a domestic flight from Istanbul to Bodrum airport or to Dalaman airport. Either are good options. Use Bodrum airport if your charter is starting from that location or from Marmaris, OR fly into Dalaman if you are starting your trip in Gocek. You can use Dalaman for pick-ups in Marmaris as well.
You can start your trip from the Greek Dodecanese islands as well. Samos is a good pick-up location and you can travel South on your yacht with the wind behind you. This is the preferable situation. You can also fly into Rhodes (Rodos) and take the ferry to Marmaris for a pick-up there OR have the yacht pick you up in Rhodes although this may turn out to be more expensive due to the Rhodes port and marina fees.
