Will the meals be served on board
We like spending the evenings in remote bays and try to avoid the
lights and sounds of noisy restaurants, beach clubs and marinas. So eating on
board becomes the best choice. The cook of the yacht is superb. We will have
excellent examples of the Turkish/Mediterranean Cuisine. Should the tour
members insist eating out, we can certainly in certain places, facilitate
their request as well.
Are there towels on board?
Yes, there are towels on board. Melitour provides the clients hand
woven Turkish Bath towels ( Pestemal ) to be used for drying up after

Will we have opportunity to go ashore?
The best part of cruising along the Turkish coast is that we always
sail along the beautiful shore where the leaves of the trees in the forests
hand their branches as if trying to hold the hand of the sea. This shore line
is spotted with many ancient sites. On our tour we will make sure that we
enjoy the antiquities hidden in the trees and discover the goat paths that are
unreachable from the main land by road.
Is getting down to the water from the yacht
No, it is not. there is a very stable 7-step ladder that help you walk
down into the water.
Should we worry about sea creatures such as sharks
No, not at all. the Turkish coast has very friendly waters. One
disadvantage of this do not expect to find to much of a underwater life as you
would have in the Carrabeans or the Red Sea.
Will there be an English Speaking Person On board?
Melitour always provides a professional English Speaking guide on
all of our tours as this is company principle and required by the Turkish
Minister of Tourism and culture. In fact, the owner of Melitour, Meli or Asli
accompanies the yacht tours personally.
