Guide To Sailing In Adakoy

Adakoy, 4km across the bay from the Mediterranean coast resort of Marmaris by boat, is a perfect experience for those who like to live in the now.

On the Adakoy Peninsula, Club Adakoy Resort is the main feature of this suburb of Marmaris. The hotel, private beachand water sports like wakeboarding, waterskiing and kite surfing are the order of the day. Rent a speedboat or sailingdinghy - small boat rental is fun too! Relax in the afternoon to a top DJ playing chill out music before they amp up the volume and beats in the evening for you to party the night away.

Mixologist David Wiedemann makes some of the best cocktails in Turkey, and with the flavours and scents he creates after a sumptuous dinner at the restaurant, your senses will be triggered all day and all evening with pleasure.

Adakoy Marina (its proper name, Marmaris Yacht Marina) is part of the backdrop - and a central feature of your stay at Adakoy. Capable of taking the superyachts of up to 50m in length, you will see and feel the luxury these exude as you enjoy the sunsets and prepare for your evening's entertainment ashore.

To access Marmaris itself you can take a water taxi into town. This takes around half an hour - similar to a longer ride by taxi ashore but far more chilled out and fun! Once in the town - the main tourist town of the Turkish Riviera - you can taste, see and feel the vibe of one of the best party towns in this part of the Mediterranean.

For those with a taste for history, Marmaris National Park is a short drive away with its ancient ruins and beautiful scenery.

Explore Adakoy By Renting A Yacht

After the constant stimulation of your day or so ashore in Marmaris, an Adakoy yacht charter will be a little more chilled. Whether you head south or west, there are all sorts of downbeat pleasures to be had on a perfect sailing vacation.

The Turquoise Coast has seen civilisations sweep over it for thousands of years. It is also known as the Carian Coast for the Carians who were around before the Ancient Greeks were at the summit of their powers. The Romans and then Byzantines held sway over the Mugla region for hundreds of years, and Turkey's own Ottoman Empire was in charge until your great grandparents were alive.

These cultural influences - and the modern day pushes and pulls of political allegiances - shape and color what you will find today, wherever your destination. You will find ancient ruins from the time of Christ and long before, bazaars and markets whose wares have barely changed since the Silk Road declined as a major trading route between Europe and Asia, and food that will simply blow your mind.

On your Adakoy yacht charter you will often go alongside piers owned by restaurants and after enjoying their hospitality, spend the night there before casting off for your next day afloat, perhaps to an anchorages all to yourself. As a sailing destination, Marmaris has few competitors - you will find secluded coves at least as good as the Caribbean or Croatia and empty beaches on stunning coastline. Encounter wildlife both in the water and ashore that you'll never see at home. Take photos that will cause a stir on social media. Overall you will have memories that will stay with you for many years to come!

Suggested Sailing Routes From Adakoy

Whether on a seven or 14 day blue cruise or bareboat charter out of Adakoy, you are spoiled for choice as to where to go on the Turquoise Coast. Here are two suggestions as to where you might visit.

7 days - Datca Peninsula: Heading to the northern side of the Bozburun Peninsula you can take in the history and modern culture of the area. On the Hisaronu Gulf, the tourist town of Selimiye will be your furthest point with its restaurants that have their own pontoons for you to spend the night at after eating there. Do pause at Orhaniye for its beautiful woodlands and ancient remains. Heading back, spend a day at Loryma, an ancient city abandoned in the 7th Century AD with an acropolis you can explore.

14 days - Lycian Coast: This is an opportunity to explore the coast south-east as far as Kekova Roads. You will pause at the interesting old city of Fethiye with its cave tombs (as well as its great day and nightlife), and get to enjoy the best beaches in Turkey including the one at Oludeniz. Gocek Bay is one of the most beautiful on the Aegean, and Butterfly Bay is named after the thousands of butterflies that live there. Kekova Roads is famous for its quiet anchorages where you can drop the hook and row ashore to enjoy the beautiful scenery and relaxed local life.

Best Times To Rent A Yacht In Adakoy

The sailing season runs from April to October in Adakoy. July and August are the busiest months for an Adakoy yacht charter. This is also when the NE wind the Meltemi peaks in strength. Though this makes for a cooling blast from the fierce heat of summer, it can be challenging for all but the most experienced sailors.

With the Meltemi less powerful outside of the peak season - and the marinas and sailing waters less crowded - it may pay off to do a sailing vacation either later in the year or earlier - if you can get out in May or October you may find things calmer both in terms of crowds and winds!

Sailing Weather In Adakoy

The Meltemi winds dominate the weather of the Aegean Sea in Turkey. The further west you go - as far as Bodrum the stronger the NW winds are during the day. The further east you go - around Antalya in the east of the country, the gentler these winds are during the day. These vary day to day and through the day. The most comfortable time to sail in Turkey is during the morning every day during the vacation season. The winds tend to be lighter and steadier in the morning and can build to very exciting conditions come mid-afternoon.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I consider when renting a boat?

The main points to consider are what is your budget, have you got the necessary sailing experience and qualifications to manage the boat if it's not going to have a skipper, whom you are taking sailing, where exactly you wish to go and what will the weather be like on the proposed dates of your trip.

Do you have to pay a deposit when renting a boat?

​You will typically pay 50% up front on booking the yacht hire and the balance on arrival. You will either pay a security deposit with your credit card on departure or can get insurance covering damage in advance. In some cases (such as the recent Covid situation) charter companies may be more flexible but this depends on the individual charter companies themselves.

What happens if my boat breaks down?

If you are at sea and in danger, call MAYDAY on VHF Ch16 or ring the coast guard on your phone if you have reception. If you have a mechanical fault and can make it to or are on a mooring you will be able to phone a help line number given by the boat charter company.

What should I think of before I rent a boat?

You should consider do you have the experience to handle the yacht charter or boat rental before you book and where do you want to go along with what the weather will be like. Bring warm weather and cool weather clothing if it looks like the weather can be cool as well as warm and remember at sea it can be cool on most evenings.

What qualifications do I need to rent a boat?

If you want to sail without a captain then you will need relevant qualifications like RYA Day Skipper/International Certificate of Competence (ICC)/ASA 104 Bareboat certificate or the US Sailing Certificate. For small 'day boats' or if you choose to have a skippered on board your yacht charter you typically don't require licences.
