Located on the South West coast of Turkey, Bodrum features roughly 300 days of sunshine a year making it the perfect place to explore while you are in Turkey. While bigger cruise ships do travel the coast of Turkey, the best way to pamper yourself and get up close and personal with nature is on a Bodrum Gokova yacht cruise.
When you’re not enjoying water activities or relaxing on the deck of your Bodrum Gokova yacht, you will spend your time visiting famous fishing harbors, popular villages, and even the remains of ancient civilizations. Bodrum is not only a famous Turkish Holiday center, it also housed one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World — The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus.
Bodrum Gokova yacht cruises can last anywhere from several days up to several weeks. It’s up to you. Whether you’re looking to spend five days, seven days, or several weeks cruising the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts, there are numerous Bodrum Gokova yacht cruises to choose from. Many Bodrum Gokova yachts feature modern amenities, but some may not. Because they are not large ships like Carnival Cruise Lines or Royal Caribbean Cruise ships, they will feature comfortable (but small quarters), with clean en-suite facilities, showers, and hot and cold water. In some cases, a Bodrum Gokova yacht (or gullet) may not have air conditioning, but every cabin will feature a perfect view of the sea and surrounding landscapes. Keep in mind that Bodrum Gokova yachts are more for nature lovers and those who love to sail than those looking for luxurious accommodations, onboard entertainment, spas, casinos, and five star dining options.
A popular Bodrum Gokova yacht cruise itinerary is the 8-day itinerary featuring stops on six days — everywhere from islands, bays and harbors to creeks and villages. Stops may include: Oraklar Island, Cokertme, Akbuk, Sedre, Sogut, English Harbor, and Yedi Adalar.

During your Bodrum Gokova yacht cruises, you will spend several hours cruising daily, and the rest of the time is spent exploring or engaging in numerous water activities. When it’s time to dine, in some cases you will eat at a large table, outdoors on deck or in the dining area of the vessel’s “main saloon.” The meals are typically Greek and Turkish-inspired, and the cook prepares them. You will also dine at restaurants on many of the islands along the way or eat in small villages on the route. Besides the cook, the other crewmembers on Bodrum Gokova yacht cruises include the captain and maybe 1-2 deck hands.
Prices for Bodrum Gokova yacht cruises vary slightly depending on the type of vessel (standard, deluxe), number of guests, length of cruise, and the time of year. Prices are typically lower in May and October, and higher in July and August. June and September are slightly lower than the months of July and August.
