2024 summer holidays and gulet charters are now well under way.

After the 2023 heatwave, many people are rethinking when to take the family away.  This does mean avoiding the months of July and August.  However, we have made provision for clients to be able to book additional hours with air conditioning operating.  It is simply a case of checking the number of hours included in your boat rental and boosting the hours with payment for the additional fuel used at the end of your charter.  If you are looking to get away early in the summer, contact us now to check availability,  There are still some gulets with space in their schedules.

Cabin bookings in September/October are filling up fast. There are currently only 2 cabins left on both dates.   Details can be found on our website. .  All gulet holidays for cabin bookings are on board the luxury Cevri Hasan V.  We can promise you almost entirely deserted bays and creeks all the way along the stunning coastline.  Itineraries are mostly exploring the Gokova and Hisaranu gulfs starting and finishing at Bodrum.  You can also expect to eat some of the best Turkish food served anywhere.


DayDreams now has in excess of 35 gulets to choose from, across 3 categories – standard, luxury and deluxe.  With a busy summer behind us it is more important than ever for us to offer a wide variety of boats to choose from.  Smaller gulets have been added with 2, 3 and 4 cabins, making it easier for a family or small group of friends to take advantage of this wonderful style of holiday.  Sailing on one of our beautiful gulets in 2024 will hopefully restore our spirits as the Turkish Aegean washes away the trials and tribulations of the recent heatwave and distant memories of the pandemic.

The extensive Turkish coastline between Bodrum, Fethiye and Finike provides numerous opportunities to explore archaeological sites, remote villages and places of interest along each route.  You can also explore some of the Dodecanese islands starting and finishing at Bodrum, using Kos and several other Greek ports to deal with formalities.  For more details of all the options contact [email protected] (more…)

Summer days on the Turkish Aegean are now with us and our Gulet Holidays are well under way.  Whatever the size of your party we will have something for you.  Just provide us with your dates and numbers and we will advise you on the most appropriate gulet.   Repeat clients can expect some form of discount if repeating with the same boat.  Click here for boat specifications:  Gulet Charters

Most of our gulets are cruising or sailing in the Gokova and Hisaranu gulfs and some itineraries will get down to Gocek and Fethiye.

“This guest book sometimes isn’t kind, when looking at old photos, but it is kind with the memories of Turkey.  Without DayDreams and Jenny’s knowledge of the history, we would know nothing of Turkey and her people (who are very welcoming).  Age has the benefit of taking the edges off bad memories sometimes and stacking up the good memories.  It must be the influence of the Cevri Hasan III (thanks to Captain Mustafa and your various crews).  The food this time has been excellent (it has often been very good).  A chapter closes as Captain Mustafa and his boat retire and that must be sad for everyone but just remember how much pleasure has been created over the years”.  Terry & Glennys Bradley

“A first holiday on a gulet.  Fantastic ! Great new friends and much laughter. We were properly looked after by the crew and Jenny’s knowledge , history and especially the archaeology really made the holiday.  Thank you”.  David and Wendy Gliddon from Somerset
