Enjoy a relaxed sailing holiday in the Gulf of Fethiye with short passages and protected anchorages.

The Gulf of Fethiye is a yachtsman’s paradise with so many sheltered anchorages, coves and islands with crystal clear water and protected coves for a tranquil night on anchor. The Gulf of Fethiye is a stunning setting for a relaxed sailing holiday in an unspoilt area, with pine covered fjord-like anchorages with names such as Four Fathom Bay, Ruin Bay, Wall Bay and Tomb Bay, evidence of an ancient Lycian civilization.

Start your yacht charter from Fethiye or Göcek, both easily reached from Dalaman airport. Fethiye is a friendly harbour town with waterfront boulevard and pedestrianised town centre lined with tavernas and shops selling everything from carpets to spices. Göcek is a yachting centre but has lost none of its authentic Turkish charm.

This sailing holiday is perfect for families with children. The crystal clear water in sheltered coves makes swimming and snorkelling a true delight.

Sailing Qualifications

To skipper a bareboat charter or flotilla yacht, you need to hold a practical sailing certificate equivalent to RYA Day Skipper Practical qualification or RYA International Certificate of Competence (ICC). For charters in Greece, you must now have the ICC certificate. You must also be assisted by at least one competent crew member over the age of 18.

For charters in Croatia, Malta and the Canaries, at least one member of the crew or the skipper will also need a VHF licence.

RYA qualifications can be obtained by RYA sailing schools in the UK or alternatively choose from one of our overseas centres in Gibraltar, Greece or Turkey.

For Caribbean and Tropical charters, formal qualifications are not compulsory, however, you should be Day Skipper standard and be assisted by at least one competent crew. A brief sailing resume should be provided to outline your experience.

If you don't hold the relevant qualifications then why not add a skipper?
