Live the Blue Cruise Life
Gulet Cruise Holidays
- with thought, surprise and charm
The East Mediterranean and Aegean Seas are impossibly blue. So blue, that a boating trip here is named a blue voyage or blue cruise.
Did you ever dream about sailing the most gorgeous area on a traditional wooden yacht, named a gulet?
At Sailing Chef, we take the "blue voyage" gulet cruises to the next level by refining each element of it. We ensure your every need is well served – with thought, surprise and charm.
Casual atmosphere, magic dining
The atmosphere is casual, the dining magic and the scenery breathtaking. Both adults and children enjoy the holiday of their dreams. All you need to do is step on board of our luxury gulet and settle into the blue cruise life.
We take care of the rest and do what it takes to leave you with a lifelong memory and a desire to return.
"The most caring, friendly, hospitable and fun team that shows you the best of their beautiful surroundings.
A go with the flow-trip, always looking for beautiful spots, knowing when and where to stop for a swim and when you're not paying attention Captain Müjdat and Chef Çaner will even catch fresh fish for dinner.
Examples are endless. This team loves what they do and whom they do it for. A holiday spent on their yacht is worth every single cent and each minute is a wonderful one!
I will definitely join them again!"

Your every need well served
Sailing Chef is all about people. No matter how beautiful the scenery or how great the cuisine, without a crew that cares for its guest as it were family, your experience would be average at best.
Highest guest loyalty
Our goal is to create a valuable and lifelong memory for each of our guests. We do this with a genuine interest in you and an eye for detail. We are thankful that each year many of our guests return to sail with our Sailing Chef Caner and our Captain Mujdat.
Why? Simply because they haven't experienced the same level of positive attention, interest, and hospitality anywhere else.
Our crew is always close when required, but keeps a distance when desired. You won't even notice.
Sailing Chef takes your blue cruise experience to the next level through our team, gourmet food and the ultimate experience of freedom.
The company owes its name to our Sailing Chef "Caner", who has the ability to create magical dishes from fresh and responsibly farmed local ingredients. Every day.
Freshly caught lobster
Each day of your cruise promises to be a culinary journey. There's no set menu. Depending on the best ingredients available, our chef finds inspiration to serve you with unique creations.
We have experienced free divers among our crew who go diving on a regular basis to find you the best and freshest fish. During the April to June period, a giant lobster is no exception.
Taking the rich tradition of gulet cruises to the next level means finding a balance between the unique experience of such a journey and understanding what is essential for you.
You can count on us to find you breathtaking bays, cosy harbours and the best sailing waters. Each day, your captain shares his sailing plans and incorporates your preferences. It is your Blue Voyage!
Enjoy the blue cruise life. Your way.
Everything is possible, and throughout your journey, you will enjoy the sensation of ultimate freedom. While sailing the turquoise Mediterranean, you enjoy breathtaking views. Lay back, read a book and relax on our brand new sun deck. Once arrived at your next bay, you can go for a swim, snorkel, arrange a scuba dive or spot sea turtles. It is up to you!
We are a Dutch and Turkish company that offers boutique-style Blue Cruises with love for our guests and an eye for detail.
Our Sailing Chef, Captain, and Crew are born and raised on the Datça peninsula. The Dutch team fell in love with the breathtaking turquoise sea and the Blue Voyage experience.
Together we aim to bring the Blue Voyage experience to the next level at a fair price.
Our dream to share our experiences with you came true with our company "Sailing Chef", named after our culinary magician Caner. We strive to provide each guest with a unique and unforgettable experience by providing you with
culinary magic and
