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
Marmaris is a lively tourist city that delivers striking contrast to the remarkably undeveloped Carian Coast to which it provides access. Leave the hustle and bustle of Marmaris' bars, beaches and markets behind as you sail the idyllic Carian Coast it's with serene swimming spots, authentic quayside restaurants, lovely sailing breezes, and as always, numerous heritage sites to discover.
The lively tourist town of Marmaris is of stark contrast to the rest of the serene and beautiful Carian Coast with its empty bays and traditional villages. The summer season is the longest of any of our sailing areas, with good weather and warm temperatures from late April right through to the start of November. Expect small villages, quayside restaurants, idyllic bays, serene swimming spots and discover numerous heritage and cultural sites to explore.View itinerary details
