Turkey's Gulf of Gökova is an astoundingly under hyped holiday destination. Endearing seaside towns, shrubby mountain backdrops and private coves with shimmering blue sea are being totally missed by the masses. Which makes it perfect for us to explore. Picture yourself aboard a traditional Turkish gulet boat, eating home cooked meals and lapping up sunshine between snorkels. 
Travel is best shared. This is a small group adventure of 12-30 people, aged between 18-35 exclusively, giving you the perfect balance of new friends to travel with and access to even more authentic experiences.

DAY 1 - Start Bodrum
Bodrum

Getting straight down to business, this show kicks off in the coastal town of Bodrum within the nest of our traditional Turkish gulet, no less. Gulet is a sailing boat, which looks like it's straight out of Instagram. This will be perfect for lots of boat jumping during our swim stops. After we've settled in and enjoyed a pow-wow over dinner, you're free to check out Bodrum's great nightlife. Just try to make it back before we set sail tomorrow morning...

Stay
Sailing Yacht
DAY 2 - Bodrum to Cokertme via Orak Island

Wave goodbye to the Turkish harbourside, it's time to get salty! Our first journey at sea this morning will take us from the arms of Bodrum and into the pristine Gulf of Gokova.

Orak Island

The drift to Cokertme just can't be done without a stop on Orak Island. Bikini up and get ready to soak up some sunshine and saltwater - the ocean here is crystal clear.

The journey here will be just as good as the destination, with the daybeds onboard the boat creating holiday vibes aplenty.

Seven Islands

DAY 6 - Longoz to Kisebuku via Ballisu and Mazi
Longoz
Ballisu
Drifting on past Ballisu this morning, we’re headed for Kisebuku via Mazi.
Mazi
With wild pirate antics set for the night ahead of us, we’ll take things easy by day in Mazi amongst the orange groves, and stock up on essentials from the market.
Kisebuku
In this small fisherman’s village, we’ll mooch around the local markets and drift in & out of the sea for swims.
Stay

Team sobs and many hugs will conclude our Turkish sailing adventure shortly after breakfast. The only thing we can say to ease the pain is this: Contiki has something equally as wonderful going on in Croatia, go get involved.

My girlfriend and I went on this trip. This is potentially not the best trip for couples but we had a blast none the less! We were really well looked after, the staff were outstanding. Our captain Yussif was absolutely brilliant. There are lots of things included with the tour that aren't always on the itinerary, for example, one night we took the speedboat to an island and watched the sunset on the top of the hill while having some drinks. My girlfriend and I are not huge drinkers so went on 1 night out but not on the other 2. That worked okay as we had a quiet night on the boat while the others went out. All the excursions are brilliant with the exception of the village tour. The village tour is more or less a guy taking you around a small village including a mosque visit, but the day is him sweeting you up for a big sales pitch on turkish rugs in the rug factory. These rugs are not cheap either. There are so many more things that are great about this trip that I just can't fit in this review! There are LOTS of swim stops (inflatables included) The mud baths and massages are a MUST. And the food is brilliant. This is a trip I will never forget.

Spent more money than originally intended (add-on excursions, drinks, wifi), and some places only accepted Euros whilst others only accepted Lira which was a bit confusing. It wasnt 100% value for money but still wouldn't put me off going again now I know what to expect.

The only downside was the tour leader who didn't give us correct instructions and wasn't there. Also some of the hidden pricing from the other excursions.

I had a good time on my Turkish Sailing holiday, but there were a few areas that were lacking the usual Contiki flair. Starting off with the good points: The crew were excellent, friendly and professional and they made sure we were looked after. The group were amazing! We had a great time getting to know each other and we were all very sad to see each other go at the end of the trip! :( The boat was nice, the accommodation was basic but tidy and comfortable. The food was nice, again pretty basic, but fresh and tasty (lots of fish though!). The weather was fantastic all week and the areas we stopped at had really lovely water to swim in. And the bad points: The boat didn't dock in a port every night (which was what I was expecting), so lots of time spent on the boat. The excursions were mediocre and of questionable value for money, a couple of them were tourist traps so you'd spend more money. All in all the trip itself was good value for money and I had a nice relaxing time which was the main reason I booked the holiday.
