Why Sail Turkey Should Be On Your Bucket List

Dreaming about a week-long sail through Europe with days spent dabbling between the sundeck and crystal blue bays in a colourful floatie? You’d could be mistaken to be think we’re talking about Croatia.

Yes, while Croatia Sail has been given the hefty title by many as ‘The Best Week of any European Summer!’ It’s fair to say Sail Turkey can put up a solid fight.

Never heard of Sail Turkey? You’re not the only one.

But with only six months until the next European Summer hits, we think it’s about time to let you in on a little secret – there’s a new 8-day Sail in town!

Did someone say ALL meals included?!

You heard correctly, breakfast, lunch and dinner are all included in our 8-day sail.

Picture yourself watching the sky turn pink as the sun sets over the picturesque coves of Turkey. Your on-board chef has the BBQ fired up, cooking fresh fish for your dinner. Pure bliss.

It’s cheap!

Turkey is undoubtedly one of the most affordable destinations in Europe for travellers looking to stretch their Dollars, Pounds and Turkish Lira!

The average cost for a bottle of local beer in a marketplace is about 15 Lira, which is less than £2 and food is just as cheap.

With meals, accommodation, transport and crew all included in the cost of the Travel Talk Sail, all that’s left to pay is the entrance fees to the sights and museums, optional activities and your bar tab!

Sleep under the stars and catch sunrises

It’s become a tradition of sorts to sleep on deck on the traditional Gulet boats. While twin and double cabins are of course included for accomodation on Sail, most of our travellers decide to spend their nights sleeping on the comfy sunbeds on deck.

Why?… More like why not?

You’ll catch the starry sky glistening with a few of your new close mates every night, chatting about your epic travel stories. Plus, you’ll wake up to some jaw-dropping sunrises!

Swim stops all day, every day

Forget waiting until midday before the boat anchors and the Skipper announces ‘Swim Stop!’

Sail Turkey is filled with plenty of opportunities to jump off the Gulet and cool down in the Mediterranean seas, from sunrise to sunset!

Each day you’ll be swimming in new destinations, whether its small coves to blue lagoons and crystal-clear bays filled with Caretta Caretta turtles.

Experience authentic Turkey with local guides

Our local tour leaders live and breathe Turkish culture, traditions and cuisine everyday.

They know the country like the back of their hand and will have plenty of authentic experiences and local advice to share with you.


A European Sail is almost a right of passage for any traveller who loves sunshine and swimming. And while we can assure you that Croatia Sail will always be one epic week, there’s something special about Turkey.

Check it out for yourself in Summer 2020 on our epic 8-Day Sail Turkey adventure!
