A rich cultural experience for sailors
Göcek has grown from a small agricultural town 15 miles NW of Fethiye into one of Turkey’s premier yachting locations, rivaling Marmaris and the Bodrum Peninsula. This is largely as a result of its natural advantages, being at the top of a deep gulf sheltered by the island of the same name. The town hosts a total of no less than six marinas, Port Göcek, Club Marina, Göcek Village Port, Göcek Exclusive, Skopea Marina, and Göcek Municipal Marina. It is also a place where virtually every conceivable yachting need can be met, including liferaft servicing. Since the completion of a one kilometer tunnel in 2006, the journey from Dalaman International Airport takes only 20 minutes.
Göcek is an excellent base for exploring the wonderful (and popular) cruising area of Skopea Limani a few miles to the south, which is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful yachting destinations in Turkey, and the so-called Twelve Islands of the Gulf of Fethiye. Göcek is not a permanent port of entry. A temporary office may open in season. The closest permanent office is Fethiye.View itinerary details
