Description of Luxury gulet cruise in the Aegean

What better way to explore the Greek Islands and Turkey’s beautiful Aegean coast than on board a luxurious and intimate traditional gulet. This eight-day cruise will take you from Bodrum along one of Turkey’s loveliest stretches of coastline and out to the tranquil Dodecanese Islands.

With a maximum of 17 people on board, sharing a gulet with between 4 and 8 cabins this cruise is all about style. You can expect five-star luxury standards; well-equipped, comfortable and spacious private cabins with en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, large lounge areas and sun deck, attentive staff and exquisite local food cooked by your on-board chef.

You’ll be stopping at some of Greece’s lesser-known islands; steeped in history and still retaining an authentic, local charm. Remnants of the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires, along with ancient Greek and Roman relics are waiting to be discovered as you explore tiny fishing villages, untouched beaches, hidden bays and ancient sites each day.

You’ll have plenty of time to wander at leisure, to sample traditional warm Greek hospitality and delicious food at local tavernas or simply to swim in the warm turquoise waters from the boat. If you’re feeling more adventurous snorkelling and fishing equipment and paddleboards are available for you to use, or why not try wakeboarding or water skiing from the on-board zodiac.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Luxury gulet cruise in the Aegean

Environment

The small size of these cruise vessels and the small passenger numbers ensures that any detrimental social and environmental impacts are minimised whilst allowing the passengers to visit smaller communities that don’t usually benefit from this form of tourism. This also enables small communities to host tourists without the need for building hotels and other infrastructure that may be required.

Sail power has very obvious ecological benefits, vastly reducing the carbon used in any form of travel as well as reducing emissions. All the crews are experienced sailors and love to sail if possible. Although we cannot use the sails all the time and in all conditions, they do provide a welcome benefit.

All the food on board is bought locally; fruit, vegetables, plenty of fish, shellfish and other seafood, meat and other staples are all locally grown and produced, and much of it is bought from small retailers or even directly from the grower or fisherman. This has a threefold benefit of reducing food miles, supporting local communities and providing our customers with very fresh food.

Any rubbish and waste generated on the vessel is disposed of responsibly on shore in an appropriate manner.

Community

We encourage all our passengers to engage with the local community on a social and economic level to ensure that this tourism has a benefit to both the visitors and the hosts.

Most tourists to this part of the world stay (and often don’t leave) some large resorts in a few restricted locations, so by enabling our passengers to visit some different areas without putting any strain on local amenities, we are spreading the financial benefits and the load of our visit.

The ship’s managers buy all of their produce as possible from local communities, and will also encourage our passengers to spend money in the communities that we visit. By trying some local fruit juice instead of a well known American brand of soft drink, you will support the economy, it will be better for you and who knows, you might find you enjoy it more too.

We will endeavour to maximise the benefits of tourism and to minimise or eradicate any downside, socially, environmentally & economically.

We will encourage our passengers to learn and understand as much as possible about the local traditions, language and way of life to enable them to appreciate the reality of life in this part of the world. The cruise manager will ask any questions about the region, and will keep all of the passengers updated, not just with the day to day itinerary, but with in depth information about the history and way of life of the local communities.
