Gulet (Schooner) to Olympos – by Mike

Posted on

From Fethiye we took a 3 night cruise on the Mediterranean around the Southern Turkish coast to Olympos. There were 17 passengers & 3 crew. Of the 17 there were 3 from Basque, 2 American guys, 1 Kiwi girl with the balance being Australian.

Each day consisted of visiting places of interest such as scenic island towns or ruins of ancient cities, interspersed with many swimming stops where we could just dive over the side into the crystal clear turquoise waters before coming back on board to find a fresh sumptuous meal awaiting.

The captain was the same size as Deb and ‘tho he enjoyed giving her a cuddle from time to time I think he enjoyed dancing with one of the three 6 foot plus young girls more.

When we stopped it was usually in a sheltered bay where there were other gulets and we would be ‘serviced’ by a flotilla of small vessels selling everything from pancakes to jet ski rides.

At night out would come the music, dancing & hookahs.

On our last day we visited a sunken city and a pirates cave before going ashore for a 2 hour bus ride to Olympos.
