At the start of June, my partner and I went on a four day-three night gulet cruise from Fethiye to Olympus. We didn't get to Olympus and instead went onwards to Antalya to fly to Kayseri.
IT WAS AMAZING!
I can't possibly describe how much I enjoyed this cruise. I was afraid at the start that it was going to be a drunken fuelled boat cruise with a pack of 18yo and I was a little afraid (and had packed ear plugs) but instead it was a terrific boat full of lovely like minded people, that enjoyed a fuel chilled out beverages with a bit of dancing at night.
There were four Australians (including us), four Kiwis and four Turks (a family with grown daughters)
During the day we all relaxed on the boat, swam in the gorgeous Mediterranean and ate amazing food!! The plates were never empty and we always had left over food!! At night we danced and played backgammon. The Turkish family would teach us how to dance to the Turkish music and pass around the tequila! Haha
The staff were great. Our chef Volcan was excellent and a real character, Our captain Ali was heaps of fun and a terrific guy. Our deck hand Youseff was very nice also.
The stops we made were great fun, my partner and I enjoyed exploring the new little towns and meeting the local people. Our last night at Smugglers Cove was crazy fun and my boat dominated the dance floor haha
They didn't allow drinks of board but all the prices were the same as you would get off the boat - 1L water, 5L soft drink, 10L beer and cider, 12L wine.
I couldn't recommend this tour company higher. They were incredibly helpful with us booking and organising transport onto Anatalya. The prices were very competitive and our boat was enormous for only the 12 of us. Definitely choose Farout if you get the chance!!
We did the 4 day blue cruise from Fethiye to Olympos and would highly recommend! There is loads of swimming time, good sights along the way, the food was delicious and the crew friendly! Only downside would be the cabins as they were not very well ventilated but as everyone sleeps on deck under the stars it doesn't matter anyway! Such a relaxing few days with a good mix of people!
Les plages visitée sont vraiment magiques, le bateau et les cabines sont bien aménagée et propre, l'équipage du bateau est sympathique et très serviable et la bouffe est excellentes. On a pu dormir sur le deck du bateau à la belle étoile. Je recommande définitivement cette croisière à tous.
