Fethiye Photo: Sailing To Göcek

We’ve had a friend staying with us for the past couple of weeks, and although we’ve not done too much dashing around (he’s been to Fethiye before and has done the classic Saklıkent et al day trips), we did make the effort to go on the Fethiye to Göcek boat trip last Sunday.

Last Friday’s Fethiye photo was an early evening shot of gülets along the harbour, and this week, we’re staying with the nautical theme – except this time we’re on the boat viewing Fethiye from the sea.

Leaving Fethiye harbour to head for Göcek

Unbelievably, this was our first time out on a boat this season. Where has the summer gone? It’s almost September and we’ve only just taken to the water. We’ve been promising ourselves a Göcek boat trip since the beginning of July and, as each Sunday has approached, something has come up to scupper our plans for a day on the ocean waves.

But not last Sunday. It was Şeker Bayramı which meant there was no market on in Göcek but we never go, anyway. A stroll around the shops, a quick Efes Pilsen at one of the seafront bars and it’s back to the boat for a leisurely journey back to Fethiye, via a couple of bays for a cooling dip. We can think of worse ways to spend a Sunday!

    Looks wonderful. We love our trips on gullets in Turkey.

  2. @ Anne Mackle: Was a lovely day out. Can’t beat a good Fethiye boat trip, can you? 🙂

  3. The bays around Fethiye have to be the best places to sail in Turkey. Even as a confirmed Bodrumite, I have to admit to this.

  4. @ BacktoBodrum: Wow, oh that is high praise indeed coming from a Bodrumite like yourself. 😉

  5. Agreed–there are plenty of worse ways to spend a Sunday! Being out on the water, surrounded by beautiful scenery? Can’t think of anything better!

  6. @ Zoe French: We’re lucky to be able to do this on a whim in Fethiye. 🙂
