About Blue Cruise History in Turkey
The blue cruise has a rich history and a must for any sea enthusiast. In an exile story, the writer “Cevat Sakir Kabaagacli,” also known as the Fisherman of Halicarnassus, brought the concept of “blue voyage” to literature, which was presented to literature by three significant Turkish literary personalities. During his exile, the famous writer became acquainted with Bodrum’s particular nature and history, and in the years that followed, he shared this experience with his writer colleagues Bedri Rahmi Eyuboglu and Azra Erhat. The blue cruise has been written about by all of these great names. Azra Erhat’s Blue Voyage, first published in 1957 and expanded in 1962 and 1979, is usually recognized with this theme.
Blue Cruise in Turkey
These boat cruises, which were once enjoyed in peace by intellectuals in the 1950s, were only available to a select few with restricted resources until the 1980s. Following that, the realization that such a vacation could be planned occurred, thanks to the curiosity expressed by sea lovers who were curious after reading the works of these writers. With the participation of our international guests, the blue journey, which is in high demand, has developed dramatically.
Our gulet production, which is a global brand, has reached its current level, in line with the demands of the domestic and foreign markets, by using more contemporary and complex facilities with more cabins each day.
