Activities at Gökçe Gemile
Detailed information, together with prices where applicable, for the wide array of activities available at Gökçe Gemile...
Private Skippered Luxury Day at Sea
Explore this stunning region in a manner available to only the very few...
The sea is a way of living at Gökçe Gemile and we believe integral to the story of your stay. As a result the property boasts its own skippered yacht which is available for guests of each house to enjoy with our compliments each week.
The Day 09:30-17:00
Once each week the yacht is yours to explore the stunning bays and coves of the region, cruising around the Gemile Peninsula and onto the famous beach at Ölü Deniz. Alternatively guests can elect to cruise further afield crossing the Gulf to explore the beautiful Göcek islands.
There is no doubt the day will be an absolute highlight of your holiday. Spending a long, lazy day admiring the stunning coast-line whilst luxuriating on the most elegant of vessels – certainly a long-way removed from any concept of a day trip boat.
Following breakfast you are met by your Captain, ready for the adventure to begin with the day spent in exploration of the region naturally with plenty of opportunity for swimming and relaxation along the way.
A sumptuous picnic lunch is served aboard annd finally, before the day is complete afternoon tea is served in a deserted bay before returning to Gökçe Gemile weary, but hopefully sated.
Days of Operation
The day available to each house is confirmed at the time of booking with guests able to cruise on any day bar Saturday (subject to avaiability).
Sunset Cruise & Additional Charters
It will be possible to arrange additional evening charters for special cruises at sunset. It is also possible to arrange additional daily charters (if not all houses are full in a particular week). These are subject to availability with rates dependent on the itinerary and payment made in situ.
Subject to availability complimentary dates may be altered whilst you are at your property.
For logistical reasons the cruises may occasionally be unable to depart. We shall endeavor to provide a replacement day, but we’re unable to guarantee one.
The boat is not available on Saturday which is the Captain’s day off.
