Turkey is a fascinating and friendly country where you can soak up the history of ancient civilizations, savour the atmosphere of market towns and villages with as much time as you can take in the sun. Whether on land or sea the scenery is spectacular. The Mediterranean and Aegean areas are still surprisingly unspoilt along the coast from Bodrum to around Olympos in the south east. Our boats will sail (winds permitting) or motor along your chosen route. There are a variety of itineraries to follow depending on your taste. Shopaholics will find plenty of scope for bargaining in all the main harbour towns.

We can also offer a number of itineraries combining the Turkish coastline with the Greek Dodecanese Islands from Samos (opposite Kusadasi) in the north down to Rhodes further south (opposite Marmaris).


FETHIYE GULF TO ANTALYA (The Lycian Coastline)
FETHIYE GULF TO ANTALYA (The Lycian Coastline)

Without a doubt the best area for archaeological sites accessible from the sea. This route can be broken up into sections depending on whether you have 1 week, 10 days or 2 weeks to spare.


An ideal one week itinerary with numerous bays and coves in the Fethiye Gulf area combined with a few areas for walking. From Ekincik you can visit the ancient Carian city of Caunus and Dalyan by water taxi.

BODRUM-BODRUM (The Gokova Gulf)
BODRUM-BODRUM (The Gokova Gulf)

You could spend a week or two here slowly savouring some of the most beautiful and breathtaking scenery anywhere along the coast. The Gokova gulf is surrounded by high mountains with just a few villages to explore. It’s an ideal area for sailing enthusiasts, walks amongst wild flowers in the Spring with a few places of historical interest along the way. Along with the Hisaranu Gulf, it is certainly the best area for the hot months of July and August as there are frequently strong winds to help you through the heat

ODRUM-MARMARIS (The Hisaranu Gulf)
BODRUM-MARMARIS (The Hisaranu Gulf)

This route has a bit of everything. You can visit Cnidos for some archaeology and interesting history, villages and beautiful bays in the Hisaranu Gulf and sail along to Marmaris for nightlife and extensive shopping at the end of your charter. Bodrum and Dalaman are the nearest airports.


You could cover this longer stretch of coastline in a week, or better still, in ten days stopping at all the loveliest bays on the way.

DayDreams Travel offers gulet holidays, both private charters and cabins only, on a diverse range of gulets from low budget to luxury and superior deluxe gulets, with numerous flexible itineraries along the Turkish coastline and Greek Dodecanese islands.

DayDreams Travel was founded by Jenny Day in 1987 following a corporate weekend to Istanbul for 100 clients from her London based PR consultancy. Using her expert organisational skills she went on to organise several  gulet charters. They were so successful the word spread and her dream of offering a special style of holiday to a wider audience become a reality.


“Captain Taner captains a fine ship with consummate skill. The crew’s sense of customer service is extraordinary, from laying breakfast in absolute silence to perfect knowledge of where to moor along every inch of the coast.” Melanie & Piers from London travelled on board Cevri Hasan V with friends in September 2014.
