dream. explore. relax.

Gourmet Dining

From sunrise to well beyond the sunset, the Chef prepares amazing dishes.

For breakfast, the chef serves seasonal fresh fruit, eggs to order, yoghurt and muesli, and often an oven-baked speciality. Don't miss his famous banana bread.

Lunch and dinner further reveal the culinary magic. Our free-diving crew member brings home the finest fish in the sea.


Combined with gorgeous salads and fresh vegetables or french fries, each meal is your best... until the next.

Breathtaking Scenery

The Mediterranean and Aegean shores of South-West Turkey offer the most beautiful landscapes imaginable.


The magnificent coastline, lapped by the impossibly blue sea, abounds in vast and pristine beaches surrounded by olive groves, rocky crags, and pine woods. 

You will encounter idyllic harbours, breathtaking bays, famous holiday villages, and ancient civilisations' remains attesting to more than 5000 years of history, culture, and mythology.

Unlimited Water Fun

The clear turquoise sea offers the ideal opportunity for every kind of water fun and sports.


Go snorkelling or scuba diving and discover unique sea life. An encounter with a sea turtle or spotting an octopus or lion-fish is no exception. 

You can also learn how to tame a standing up pedalling board, go for a fast ride behind our motorboat, or take a relaxing swim.  


Taking a canoe and discovering your bay's surroundings keeps you fit while enjoying the scenery.

Flexible itinerary 

At Sailing Chef, a wide variety of gulet cruise itineraries are possible, depending on the length of your cruise and harbours of embarkation and landing.


Many of our guests return year after year and keep experiencing each Blue Voyage as their first.


Our team calls the area where the Mediterranean and Agean seas meet their home. They know each idyllic bay, cosy harbour and hidden spot. Combined with your preferences, we prepare the perfect itinerary for your Blue Voyage.
