Skippered Charters

If you love boats but your sailing skills are minimal or even non-existent, or if you just want a chauffeur so you can relax onboard, PORTWAY’s skippered bare boat charters are the ideal solution.

PORTWAY offers the best way for you to enjoy cruising on the coastal waters of the Turkish Mediterranean in the competent hands of one of our professional, fully qualified and experienced skippers.

You are still in charge of where and when you sail, within reason of course, depending on the weather but with the skippers’ local knowledge you have the chance to visit those hidden treasures, tranquil bays and delightful restaurants, that a newcomer to the area may not know, as well as learning about the places to give a miss.

Your skipper can sail exclusively while you relax, or you can muck in too. The choice is yours.

Bareboat Charters

A sailing paradise for those qualified and confident to skipper their own yacht and want to do their own thing.

This glorious region known the world over as the TURQUOISE coast has the best sailing in the eastern Mediterranean.

Famous for its dramatic coastline, hidden bays, bustling towns, fascinating culture and great hospitality what more perfect place to enjoy a sailing holiday away from it all?

A week’s holiday will give you the chance to sail between the idyllic bays and islands of Fethiye’s gulf or sail out as far a Kaş or Dalyan, depending on the weather conditions.

Either way, bareboat chartering in this area is a yachtie’s dream come true.
