There will be a welcome cocktail and all information will be given for your safety also all details of your time on board whilst sailing in Turkey. The Captain will also share with you all relevant details about your journey.
Each vessel is different and you will receive information on the electricity availability times for your boat and information on charging your phones and cameras etc.
Your first night will be spent either in the harbour where you embark or at the first bay on your itinerary. When you wake up on the first morning of your cruise you will start your day with a Traditional Turkish breakfast and get to know other passengers that are onboard with you.
As you continue on your journey you will stop at different bays, for a swim and you will be able to bask in the warmth of the sun on deck. Whilst sailing please be aware that the wind can be deceiving and many people find themselves with sunburn, we recommend you use an appropriate sunscreen and protect yourself accordingly.
Anyone wishing to partake in other sports such as fishing, paragliding or water sports, please let the crew or your captain know and they will be more than happy to organise for you if possible.
At some of the bays and harbours, there will be the opportunity to join short excursions, the captain will again give you all the details of these and the choice will be yours, this is a great way to explore this amazing land whilst sailing the seas of the Mediterranean.
Lunch and Evening meals are also a great time to relax and socialise, any special dietary requirements should be made known to us before the commencement of the cruise. Whilst watching the most beautiful sunsets you can enjoy your evening meal or BBQ with a cocktail.
