I returned to Oz about 8 pm last night. All luggage lost but not to worry , I'm sure it will turn up eventually.
I had such a wonderful time and can't express enough the joy of meeting such a diverse and delightful group of people to share a holiday with. Your organisation provided a holiday of a life time, highlighted by the inclusion of a Turkish Gulet with its guests and crew.  ( haha) We all got along famously as you would be aware.
I have a feeling Mariner will be seeing me again in the not too distant future !!!
Thanks again to you , Maggie and Laura,
Love Ruth R xxx

Hi Emma, Just to let you know 4 days in, boat, crew and particularly food brilliant.Your feedback re the chef was spot on, have not eaten food of this quality on 3 previous trips to Turkey, one dinner ashore with the captain at a seafood restaurant was also outstanding ( his usual eatery in this Greek port)

Back at work wearing a coat and tie, 'Blue Eyes', Sardinia and Corsica already seem a long way away. Thanks for all your hard work and organization . Please pass on my thanks to Trevor and Maggie. They are amazing how they make one feel like a special friend when they deal with so many people. Needless to say I really enjoyed myself and hope to do another charter sometime in the future. All the best.

We had a wonderful experience sailing the Dodecanese islands with our family in July 2014. The captain and crew were fantastic and the food phenomenal! The gulet was so spacious and comfortable. We were able to plan our trip exactly as we wanted. Whether it be docking in tiny bays and heading into picture postcard tavernas, or jumping into crystal clear water this was one of the best holidays we have ever had. Mariner Boating gave us the reassurance we were dealing with a professional outfit especially when we got to Turkey. Everything was in order. Thank you so much for helping make this trip so special!

Experience: Gulet Charters

We have returned from 10 days on the gulet "Ya Selam" in the area of Turkey's Turquoise Coast between Gocek and Kekova Roads. From our initial contact with the Agent's representative to watching "our" gulet depart for its home port in Bodrum after we disembarked in Fethiye we reflected that there was not one thing that could have been done better. The crew were so helpful that it was embarrassing yet they remained unobtrusive. We had expected to average one meal ashore each day, in fact we had none! Meals on board were too good to miss. Ya Selam was the prettiest vessel wherever we anchored and we spent hours admiring her from sea and land. The crew seemingly always had a cloth in hand polishing varnish and removing any spray from windows and obviously had great pride in their gulet. Accommodation was attractive, comfortable and spotless. Our party of 13 ranged in age from 3 to 75 years but our captain always provided a schedule to meet our needs as if we had programmed it ourselves. He was a very kind man who seemed to anticipate our every need. The trip was wonderful and I can't speak highly enough of the captain and crew of the Ya Selam.
