This is not an exclusively gay cruise. Potential of gay tourism in Turkey is not so big for frequent gay cruises, unfortunately. We organize this cruise in cooperation with other non-gay boat operators or boat owners, but we choose the gay friendly ones as much as possible. Therefore it is a coincidence if there will be other gay or lesbian clients joining the same cruise, same day with you. Other participants comes from various travel agencies and are mostly western tourists.
Gullet boat cabins mostly have only 1 double bed and twin (separate) beds are not guaranteed. Cabin share is also not guaranteed for single participants. If you join as single person you need to book a private cabin and pay the single supplement.
The boats are standard quality and the cruise is classified as cabin charter. The cabins will have en suite bath/WC. Private charter version of same cruise can be organized with standard or deluxe boats if requested. Similar rates can be offered for private groups consisting of some 14-16 people.
There may be changes with the cruise route. The captain can make some minor changes with the route / order of visits due to wind & weather conditions, harbor regulations and unexpected technical problems.
What you should bring: Bed linens and sufficient bath towels are provided but still we still recommend you to bring your own extra towels as well as swimming and sun bathing materials, a couple of slippers, walking shoes, a pullover and maybe a wind-breaker for windy nights.
