Sailing Yoga and more…
YogaCruise is certainly one of the most enticing ways to travel the Greek Aegean İslands & the Turkish Mediterranean- Aegean Coast.
Our yachts provide from 6 – 20 cabins with twin beds or double beds. Each cabin is equipped with small wardrobe, WC and shower. These yachts are “Gulets”. Traditionally crafted wooden sailing boats, of a length ranging from 25 to 45 meters, with 2 or 3 masts.
Each meal is freshly cooked on our Yogacruise tours and we serve a healthy, vegetarian, Mediterranean cuisine. Already the traditional Mediterranean – Brunch breakfast consists of a plethora of locally Organic produced, high quality ingredients from the honey to the cheeses and vegetables. For dinner the meals are composed out of a variety of traditional vegetable dishes and salads. We always serve fresh fruit of the season as a dessert or as a snack for in between meals.
The Yoga sessions will be given by experienced yoga teachers , mostly on the sun deck, at some occasions on the beach. During the trips there is plenty of time to relax, to read or chat under a shady sail, with a quieting view over the sea. Twice daily (mornings and evenings) you can enjoy our modern yoga sessions, giving you physical exercise and deep relaxation.
A choice of excursions on land will give you plenty of opportunities to get to know the nature, the culture and the history of this region. Exquisite jaunts to historical, archeological sites, Mud bath with hotspring, herb hiking tours, or a visit to a nomadic village or a traditional Turkish bath – a hammam. They all share enriching insights into the wealth of the eastern Mediterranean culture.

Yoga Cruise Tourism Ltd. is a small family run business that operates since June 6th, 2006. Over the years we have acquired valuable skills and experience in all the fields of our operations with focus on yacht charters, excursions, hiking tours and trips for research and study purposes. We treat all our customers with utmost care regarding all details of trip planning and special interests or purposes. This careful, individual planning of each tour is highly appreciated by our returning customers.
Our family has been making their living out of sea cruises and sea related activities since generations. My grandfather, all my uncles as well as my father and myself have been working with sponge-diving and related trades.
We built our first Gulet Yacht in the year of 1987 and this was the starting point of our operations in the field of so called “Blue Trips”, yacht charters, hiking tours, research- and study trips along the Turkish coastline as well as to Greek islands.
The shipbuilding tradition in our region reaches back to antiquity Bodrum and Gulet Yachts have been used for transport and sea trade over centuries, sailing along the Turkish coastline connecting it to Greek islands and beyond. During the 60s and 70s the first tourists in the Bodrum area re-discovered the beauty of the Golf of Cleopatra with the help of local fisherman and sponge-divers who took them on small tours, lasting several days. Thus the pristine nature and unspoiled beauty of this region of the world became famous outside of Turkey.
Over the years the local shipbuilding tradition evolved and adapted to increasing demands of comfort and space and nowadays these beautiful wooden yachts are a pride of the region, a highly esteemed asset to discover the natural beauty of Turkey.
We specialized from the year of 1986 in hiking tours and cultural excursions and starting from the year of 2006 focused on yoga cruises and sea trips for all seminars-Events and Groups for Vedding, Honeymoon… It is a pleasure for us to welcome international guests. We have an international team of yoga teachers from Europe and the USA, leading yoga seminars in English, German or multi-language combinations. I am fluent in German language myself and speak good English.
Our trips will take you to the most attractive stretches of the turkish coastline and to a choice of our neighboring Greek islands with historical, archeological sites and pristine nature. Of course you can count with sunny days…..
