Boutique Blue Cruises
Your every need well served - with thought, surprise and charm
The Mediterranean and Aegean Seas are impossibly blue. So blue that a boating trip here is named a blue voyage or blue cruise. Sailing Chef offers you blue cruising at the highest level by refining each element of such experience, providing you with a magical experience and lifelong memory.
Sail the breathtaking Turkish Riviera and Greek Islands with friends and family on an iconic gulet-yacht.
Wake up to yoga on the sun deck, followed by a swim and an indulgent breakfast. Change the tempo with some fast-paced water sports activities in the afternoon. Make an impromptu visit ashore to the local boutiques and historic sights, or set course for another anchorage, arriving in time to sip sunset cocktails with a completely new view.
Enjoy spectacular scenery, magic cuisine, hidden bays, and unlimited water fun. Your personal crew treats you like a VIP. There is no request too big or too small, and often it will feel as though the crew have anticipated your needs before you even know them.
We ensure your every need is well served – with thought, surprise, and charm.
Book a cabin or create your private holiday bubble
Sail the region where the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas meet, and the Turkish Riviera and Greek Islands collide. Experience jaw-dropping scenery and a perfect climate from April until late November. The outside temperature is always pleasant from April until late in November, when the sea is still warm.
Your blue cruise is all inclusive—no hidden extras. Even the border passages between Turkey and Greece are included. All you need to do is relax and enjoy the sensation of freedom. The blue cruise life starts here.
PRIVATE GULET CHARTER
Create your holiday bubble
Do you want to experience a unique, safe, and carefree holiday with friends and family in your own holiday bubble?
You can charter a private luxury gulet for up to twelve guests from €7.480 per week, all-inclusive.
Casual atmosphere and magic cuisine
Local and international dishes from the freshest ingredients
The blue cruise life is addictive. The atmosphere is casual, and the scenery breathtaking. Enjoy a sundowner cocktail and prepare for the evening.
The culinary magic is an essential part of your Sailing Chef experience.
Your private chef finds the freshest ingredients and creates local and international dishes. Each morning you'll wake up to an indulgent breakfast. Lunch is a wonderful surprise and dinner a spectacular experience—every day.
Some days, our freediving crew goes out catching the best local fish. Quality you won't find in a restaurant then cooked to perfection. From April to June, a wild-caught lobster is no exception. Of course, your chef also loves preparing a fine burger, delicious vegetarian dish or a hand-made pizza for you.
Whether you are an adult, teenagers, or child, you enjoy a dream holiday in an ambience that invites you to relax.
All you need to do is step on board and settle into the blue cruise life.
Symi - Greece
At Sailing Chef, all-inclusive means no hidden costs for fuel, logs or border crossings. A Sailing Chef blue voyage is 100% carefree, and your border passages between Greece and Turkey are included.
During your cruise, we'll take you on an overnight trip to one of the most picturesque islands imaginable, Symi Island in Greece.
You know you've arrived at a unique island when you reach Symi, the jewel of the Dodecanese. Yialos, the main harbour area, with its ever-present neoclassical architecture and myriad of pastel hues, has been touted as one of Greece's most beautiful. A bold claim that's hard to refute once you've seen it in person.
Symi, in the Dodecanese, ranks as the perfect destination for those seeking a style that combines cosmopolitan flavour with old-world glamour. In its tavernas and restaurants, you'll sample the famous Symi shrimps.
At Sailing Chef, we take blue cruising to the next level, so your overnight trip to this enchanting island is included.
