F.A.Q

Can we book this boat as many days as we want and start the trip any day of the week?

Gullets ideally operate on weekly schedules starting and ending on Saturday or Sunday. Gullet owners hate to break the week. You can book a gullet 5 or 6-day payments depending on the boat’s schedule and the owner’s willingness. You can find more flexible deals on the shoulder season, which is May & October.

Do we actually “sail”?

Gullets are designed for maximum comfort and very heavy with a keel of 7-8 feet, which means they need a strong wind to move on sails.  All Hike’n Sail itineraries include hikes, land excursion, as well as downtime. Although we do not rush around, we “do” have a schedule, so we don’t fool around putting the sails up and waiting for the wind very often. However, every trip, we set the sails up, at certain places, where we know that there will be wind and enjoy the tranquility.

What are the check-in & check-out times?

As soon as the guests disembark, the crew starts cleaning, laundry, and shopping for provisions. You are likely to be able to get on board at around 15:00. You are expected to leave the boat not later than 10:00. It is usually right after breakfast. Again, depending on the boat’s prior and next assignment, there may be flexibilities.

How do you handle special diets?

There is no problem with handling different diets, as long as we know details in advance. Turkish cuisine has endless opportunities for every diet and every taste.

How do you keep the cabins clean?

The bins in your cabin are cleaned and beds are made every day by the crew, at the times that you are enjoying your lunch with the others. Bedsheets and covers are replaced every 3-4 days, which is once a week.

Can I charge my phone, tablet, or laptop onboard?

Yes, every day, the generator is run to charge the fridge, deep-freeze, and also operate the A/C, which means 220 V is available. Other times, there 12 – 24 V is available.

Why are daily rates different every month? What is the best time to be on a gullet vacation?

Rates start getting higher as soon as the schools are closed and get lower as soon as the schools are open again because gullet vacations are ideal for families.

However, if your schedule is not tied up to the school year, you will find the shoulder season to be the ideal time for gullet vacations. In high season you will enjoy your time on the gullet with long day time, and hot and humid weather. On the other hand, temperatures are much nicer in May, June, September, and October. This sea temperature averages can give an idea. (C/F)
