The Wind and Sea

Charter sailing can be affected by the weather. The seas in the Turkish Aegean are generally calm in May, June and July. In August and September the god Zephyr (god of wind) is responsible for the famous 'Meltemi' wind. This is typically a northeasterly which can develop into 6-8 Beaufort. The Turkish Aegean can be flat like a mirror, but a short chop of 1 meter is common. When Poseidon (the god of the sea) gets restless 3 to 4 meter swells can develop. This is a challenge but not a problem for the larger yachts used for the 'Archaeological Cruises'. One spare day is often kept on all cruises in case of a delay due to badweather. As in all sailing holidays rough weather conditions may alter the proposed itinerary.

Marine Life

Porpoise and dolphin that often swim at the bow while we sail. Hawksbill and Loggerhead turtles still swim and sun themselves in Turkish waters probably as a direct result of the great efforts of Turkish environmentalists. Sardines, tuna, swordfish and mackerel are also often seen on the surface. Scuba diving is available at Bodrum, Marmaris, Ekiçik and Gocek and divers can see moray eels, eagle and sand rays, octopus, kalamari, crayfish, rock lobster, crabs, triton and nautilus shells, Nudibranchs, jellyfish, scorpion fish and many other colorful fish. The only danger is stepping on a sea urchin! Sea sponges and incredibly colorful coral encrustations cover rocks and caves. Fantastic archaeological treasures can be seen on many dives. Wreck diving is offered at many locations in Turkey. *N.B. artifacts must not be touched or taken
