Your crew are on hand to ensure that you are comfortable at all times. Your captain will assist you with information about your chosen itinerary and give details on all there is to do and see ashore. Your cook, whose culinary skills extend from traditional recipes to any variety of Mediterranean-style cuisine and in some cases, Asian-style cooking, can easily adapt his recipes to accommodate any special dietary requirements and preferences. Other valuable members of the crew include a deckhand who doubles as a watersports instructor; a steward to serve your every need and a further crew member, who is usually an additional steward or stewardess.
A gulet charter is designed to be fun and relaxing and most importantly - you get to set the pace and choose what to do, and when to do it. All the while, you will be dining on authentic Turkish cuisine, experiencing local Turkish culture, immersing yourself in the area's history and taking time out ashore to get a feeling for the destination. Speaking of Turkish cuisine, local produce is always fresh and delicious, having been grown in fertile soils under the Mediterranean sun. Vegetables are full flavored and summer-fruits are ripe, juicy and sweet. Expect to see lots of tasty vegetables and legume dishes, salads, fish and seafood dishes, fragrant lamb and "kofta" dishes and Turkish-style pastas and hot pilafs. Local wines are of a very good quality and can be enjoyed alongside some of the best-tasting cheeses and olives in the world. You can find just about any kind of beverage in Turkey and local spring waters, sparkling mineral waters and fruit juices are all excellent.
