Your safety during a Blue Cruise

Earlier this week, the Dutch travel magazine TravelPro published an article in which the Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mevlüt Çavuşoǧlu, stated that it would be safe to spend your holiday in Turkey this summer.

Turkey is one of the leading countries embracing the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) Safe Travels stamp.

A Blue Cruise onboard a small scale gulet-yacht is arguably one of the safest ways to celebrate your vacation while preserving the full holiday experience. Your Blue Cruise is small scale, dominantly outdoors, and isolated from the masses.

Yet, we are taking additional safety measures to guarantee our guests a genuinely carefree holiday. These measures consist of the government's prescribed standards for Blue Cruises and additional ones by Sailing Chef, including:

  • Yachts are cleaned and disinfected before new guests arrive

  • Port authorities check and approve proper disinfection

  • Before boarding, guests get a contactless fever check and industry-grade hand disinfection

  • Guests cannot board other boats than the one they are staying on

  • Mouth masks are available for each guest throughout the journey

  • Each guest gets his/her personal (bpa free) water bottle

We can imagine that you have further questions. We are here to answer them for you. Please feel free to contact us at or complete the contact form on our website.

We look forward to welcoming you onboard this summer. We still have limited space available during the weeks of 15, 22 August, and 10 and 17 October.

Your Sailing Chef Team
