Il Marinaio (or Çetin's Boat as it is more commonly known) is a traditional Turkish gulet that offers Turunç visitors an exceptional holiday experience.

The boat is beautifully maintained - all gleaming wood and brasswork - there is plenty of space to relax with private space for you to change in and out of swimwear if you want to. The crew is welcoming and knowledgeable and the food is, quite simply, outstanding.

Çetin's all-day cruise will take you to quiet secluded coves where you can swim, snorkel, try paddle boarding or just relax and marvel at the amazing scenery. If you are lucky you will see turtles and flying fish. Lunch features an amazing selection of mezes made by Şule (Çetin's wife) and barbequed fish, chicken or meatballs expertly prepared on board by Çetin himself. Il Marinaio has a well-stocked fridge with cold alcoholic and soft drinks available at reasonable prices. Teas and coffee can be purchased throughout the day.

Have you ever swum under the stars? The Stargazing cruise on Il Marinaio is an amazing (and very popular) evening cruise that sets of from the harbour at about 7PM. You will sail for about an hour to an isolated cove, anchor up and watch the glorious sunset. You can swim - with fish (and maybe turtles) all around - as it gets dark. The lights under the boat light up the sea - a quite breathtaking experience. You will enjoy a beautiful, freshly-cooked dinner with the chance to do some more swimming or just relax for before sailing back to Turunç.

Il Marinaio can accommodate up to 12 passengers. It is available for private hire and also operates public cruises on certain days. Check out Cetin's Facebook page or Instagram page for more details.
