A yacht charter is the perfect way to explore a coastline, both above and below the waterline. One of life's great pleasures is stopping off for lunch and a dip in the alluring Mediterranean, which is teeming with life.

The Turkish coastline is full of great snorkelling spots, and the calm seas of the Gulf of Fethiye and Carian Coast are the perfect places to explore an underwater world like no other.

Although the sea is so beautiful you could spend days simply drifting along the coast, there is still so much to be explored in the Turkish towns dotted along the coastline.
