Boat Trip Turkey was launched in 2005 and we provide a luxury, skippered, crewed yacht (a gulet) for charter from Kas, Turkey. We organize daily boat tours as well as blue cruise and activity programs in Kaş, Kalkan, Kekova, Demre and Antalya regions.
We are a family business. My wife and I met whilst we were both studying economics at the prestigious Dokuz Eylul University of Izmir, Turkey. During the summer holidays, I started providing boat trips on my family’s boat in Kas and I was hooked. There was no going back! Straight after graduation I decided to follow my passion for boating and I have had no regrets. Fortunately my wife also has a deep love for the sea and is an essential member of our crew.
We love to travel, meet new people, make new friends and learn about other countries. Typically we run charters between April and November and then spend the rest of the year travelling around the globe. Perhaps our own love of travel and exploration is why we understand what our guests are looking for in a holiday.
My wife and I welcome our guests on board and we want each of our guests to feel special and enjoy the luxury of the boat, but at the same time feel they can relax as if we were part of their family. We try to tailor every holiday to the exact requirements of every guest. We are a family business.

There are many yachts for rent, but if you are looking for a crewed yacht you need to be comfortable with who you are spending your precious holiday time with. Our crew members are carefully selected for not only their ability to run the boat, but also for their customer service, appearance and bonhomie.
Simple we get the recipe just right. We listen. We give you that experience you’ve been dreaming of while sitting at your desk at work. It’s a custom made holiday according to your tastes. While there are myriad charter companies plying their trade along the famed Turquoise Coast, our team distinguishes itself in a number of ways:
1. WE SPEAK FLUENT ENGLISH
With us, there’s not stress of ‘getting lost in translation.’ We are also travellers and know the hassles involved when someone doesn’t completely ‘get’ what you want. Not only is Captain Ergun a completely fluent English speaker, he’s also great company and a good conversationalist who will make you and your family feel completely at ease and answer all your questions and queries in an informative manner. Having someone who ‘speaks your language’ in every sense of the word is worth its weight in gold when one is planning a cruising holiday or day trip.
2. TOYS R US!
We have a great range of aquatic toys and gear on board to really enhance your experience with us. Depending on your tastes and weather permitting, you can choose from a range of awesome activities, most of which are all included in your charter fee! How about a spot of scenic snorkelling, some leisurely paddling with our kayaks or stand up paddle board?
A trip on our speed boat? A spot of adrenaline inducing waterskiing? (The only activity you pay an extra fee for). Or, experience the thrill of being pulled through the water by our underwater sea scooter while fish and coral gazing? You name it, we have it. All our gear is new, in top condition and impeccably maintained. Come and enjoy.
3. FREE VIDEOS & PHOTOS
Captain Ergun loves nothing better than putting his new Go Pro Hero 3 to good use documenting the highlights of your trip! As a special service, you will be gifted with the footage/aerial photos as a token to remember the experience. It’s a great way to show friends and family back home what you’ve been up to and can be shared on social media in real time! The footage taken with Captain Ergun’s drone is the perfect memento and a great way to re-live your dream holiday!
Captain Ergun is a true gadget fundi! For those of us addicted to social media and the web we have wireless services, iPods and all manner of toys to keep you connected with your network. There’s nothing worse than being on holiday but worrying about some emergency situation at work. With us, that is not cause for concern.
That said we do encourage you to pack away that smart phone and laptop and unwind properly. After all, that is why you’re here, right? Grab a chilled glass of (really decent, we promise) Turkish Sauvignon Blanc or a chilly Efes Lager and enjoy the fresh sea air, amazing sights and soothing rhythm of on board life!
We pride ourselves on our delicious array of signature Turkish dishes. Everything is fresh as can be, lovingly prepared, served with style and takes your tastes and preferences completely into account. Our team are highly knowledgeable when it comes to local cuisine and use only seasonal produce.
We conjure up an array of delectable treats for all three meals of the day, so prepare to feast! We love good food and can’t wait to share our local specialities with you. We can’t wait to meet you and help you create some fantastic memories.
5. FOOD QUALITY
Food and drink are an important element of any holiday. All meals are freshly made and by letting us know beforehand if there are any specific dietary requirements or preferences we can ensure our menus are a delight and a highlight of your holiday. Popular foods for the region and during the summer are dishes with olives, pasta, grilled fish, meat and vegetables. Experiencing locally caught fish is a must whilst you are staying with us. Salads, fruit and yogurts are also popular. If you are just joining us for a day we provide lunch, fruit and a high tea. Typically lunch will include chicken, fish and meatballs with various salads.
