Activities on gulets
What are the most exciting activities on gulets in Greece and Turkey? Chartering a gulet is more than just relaxing on a boat and sailing around. Gulet cruise is an experience that embraces all that the beautiful Aegean coats have to offer. The Greek islands or Turkish Anatolian coast is rich in history. There is a lot to do, experience, visit and enjoy. No matter which gulet you will choose, this holiday offers you access to incredible natural sites. Not only, but you will visit archaeological and charming coastal villages. Above all, you will enjoy gastronomy, traditions, and maybe water sports or just total relax.
For private gulet charters, we can organise land excursions and incorporate it into your itinerary. You can decide for half or full day excursions to archaeological sites like Cleopatra Island in Gokova bay or Asklepion on Kos island. You can visit natural parks like a volcano on Nisiros island or Daylan river with its tombs. Your itinerary can also include towns of unique beauty like Patmos island or Rhodes. In case you book a cabin cruise there are additional tour organisations which are subject to extra rates, other than your cabin charter fee.
Shore visits “on your own”
Of course, you can decide on some offshore activities on your own. Depending on the harbour or bay you have dropped anchor, the most popular activities to consider are promenading or walking, hiking or biking trip. On the Greek Islands, our guests sometimes rent a scooter and discover the islands in their way
Swimming, snorkelling and fishing
Most of the gulets have necessary snorkelling masks and flippers and fishing lines available on board. You can also bring your equipment. We recommended it if you are a fervent fisherman or enthusiast of snorkelling. Or just relax and spend your day bathing in endless sunshine and swimming in irresistibly blue water.
Watersports selection is not standard equipment on all gulets, so if you are interested in water sports ask details about it. Most of the gulets have kayaks or windsurfs on board. These are also considered the best activities for everybody and the safest ones. On gulets, you will also find motorsports like waterskis and wake-board.
Other watersports activities on gulets like Jet-ski are available on limited gulets only. If your gulet doesn’t have the equipment you wish, you can rent it for the periods of your cruise. But this option might include extra costs, or it might be not available. For some watersports might be limitations according to the navigation area.
Scuba-diving in Turkish and Greek waters is permitted only under the guidance and supervision of a licensed dive guide. Of course, as with diving in an area that has a long history of sea trade, there might be underwater antiquities. Sometimes it is possible to see amphorae and other ancient relics scattered all over the seabed.
Gulet cruise offers a unique combination of sunbathing and relaxation. But also sightseeing, alfresco eating, drinking and of course sailing along this stunning coastline of Greece and Turkey.
Take a Yoga instructor with you on your private cruise. You will start and finish your day with a yoga class. Each yoga class will take place in a different location. You can have your practice on the sundeck or even on the beach.
Yoga classes on gulets are available when you charter a private gulet.
