Western Carian Sailing Itinerary - Yacht Charter Turkey

Four different amazing routes for everyone's taste and needs.

Why Choose a Western Carian Sailing Itinerary?

Because it is suitable for less experienced and intermediate sailors. Sogut, especially, is ideal for intermediate sailors. Since there are two different 1-week routes and two different 2-week routes available, you have the ability to choose the one that perfectly suits you.  You will explore amazing places, stunning coves and spots of rich culture, all over the Mediterranean Turkish coast. The most fascinating thing is that the Eastern culture meets the Western culture.
From the stunning bay of Sogut, you can start some great routes with the opportunity to visit the Greek Island of Symi. If you choose the 2-week Gokova Route you can explore as far as the English Harbour and Bodrum.
Whichever route you choose, you can be assured of a warm welcome, some great local cuisine and some fabulous sailing.
