for deaf, hard of hearing and hearing
Bordered by four seas and with more than 8000 kilometres of beautiful coastline, Turkey is a treasure
chest of coves, inlets, bays, islands and secret beaches. Visiting Turkey is an experience of a lifetime. It is
a country renowned for its hospitality, culture, history and of course its natural beauty seen from the unique
position of the sea.

Sailing the Turkish Blue Cruise coast onboard a traditional, handcrafted gulet is one of the most
pleasurable pastimes imaginable; you'll swim and snorkel in warm, jewel coloured waters; feast on
lavish spreads prepared by the onboard chef and sleep peacefully at night anchored in small pretty bays.
Maybe you'll even decide to sleep under the stars with the sound of the sea gently lapping the side of the

Enjoy total relaxation and great food on your Blue Cruise as the Captain and crew take care of you.
Cruising for a few hours each day between small coves and bays surrounded by pine clad mountains, you
will have plenty of time for swimming in clear, turquoise waters.
The stuff dreams are made of.

Who Charters a Gulet

The walking/sailing tour between Marmaris and Fethiye should be on
everyone's Turkish itinerary. It's a marvellous way to discover the history
and natural beauty of the Mediterranean Coast.
Anne from Meridian Travels provides a personalised and engaging week
of activities which could not be faulted. In some ways it's best not to know
the full itinerary but be surprised and delighted by the simple pleasures
of discovery of new places at a leisurely pace. We loved it and would
recommend it to anyone visiting Turkey.           
Brian McGrath, Geelong, Australia

Yet again, a truly marvellous week, you do it so well, huge thanks for this
third trip for women from the deaf community..
Sarah Playforth

Thank you for the most brilliant holiday....amongst my best ever. Last year
was very near perfect but the addition of singing made it perfect. Good
organisation, marvellous boat and crew, just the right itinerary, the pace,
locations and climate. All contribute to making the very best of holidays.

Gulet in a turquoise bay
for groups of families and friends
Like you we've been following the plight of refugees for
some time now, watching harrowing footage on tv of
children, women and men trying to cross the sea to

Living in Marmaris. we only see refugees on tv or
facebook and wondered what we could do to help when I
stumbled upon an organisation based in Kusadasi
(about 5 hours north of here by car) and run by Dianne
Jones. She set up L.I.L.Y some five years ago and has
galvanised people from around the world into knitting or
crocheting blankets and clothing.

Many of you have already been making a difference when
onboard East Meets by bringing donations of wool and
knitting or crocheting blankets and I thank you.

Take a look at what our lovely passengers have been
making whilst they've been cruising the Aegean.
Surely there's no better way to explore the
beautiful beaches and coves of the
Turquoise coast than cruising and hiking.

We explore trails only accessible from the
sea, follow in the footsteps of Romans,
stumble upon ancient ruins and eat
fabulous food.
Singing is incredibly good fun; it's also
excellent for the mind, body and spirit.

Imagine singing amongst ancient ruins and
in coves of turquoise; relaxing in the shade
of pine and eucalyptus; feeling the warmth
of smooth, teak decks beneath your feet.
