Informative, friendly and professional guide

As the Italian novelist, journalist, poet and short-story writer Edmondo de Amicis describes in his book Constantinople(1878), sailing in Istanbul is a very unique and special experience. You can admire the minarets of old Ottoman mosques raising into the sky at the historical peninsula while you have the Princes’ Islands on the other side. Great views of Istanbul from the water, seagulls, dolphins, sound of the wind, truly a unique experience.

On our private sailing tour, we depart from Kalamış Marina which is located on the Asian side of Istanbul. Before you sail, the professional skipper will brief you on the basics of sailing and the sea. If you already know sailing than you are welcome to take action and sail with the leadership of a local expert.

Starting from Kalamış Marina we sail towards the Prince’s Islands. There are nine islands –very close to each other. Your local guide will introduce you the islands as you stroll through them. If the weather permits, you are welcome to swim (jump in the water). Make sure to bring your swimming suit, sailing clothes and comfortable sports (sailing friendly) shoes.
