Early Impressions of Marmaris, Turkey

10 January 2010

Happy New Year !

I have had quite a few people ask me what my impression is of Marmaris and Turkey, so I thought I would add it here, just in case you were wondering also.

We are impressed so far. We were in Turkey for only about two weeks and much of that was taken up with getting the boat ready for the winter before we returned to Canada. However we did get in a small cruise east to Ekincek and Dalyan. (See Previous blog postings). We really liked what we saw so far. No problems with officialdom and even though we have read the same stories about black water and gray water discharge rules we have not had any problems. We do use our holding tank and are careful with limited gray water discharge. We did use the marina's agent at Yacht Marine to get Visa's, transit log and to set the boat set up in bond while we are away. It cost approximately 50 euros, if I remember correctly.

Yacht Marine, Marmaris is probably the most well organized and well equipped marina we have been in yet and probably is the most impressive I have visited anywhere! No, I'm not a shareholder just very impressed so far. http://www.yachtmarin.com/marina/index.php?lang=en Lots of great service people there also. There is an active cruiser community there and they are friendly and interested in meeting new people. The rates ($) are low although climbing..... The downside is there is only one restaurant in the marina and you have to take the bus to town. So far I give Marmaris an A, though as mentioned it's based on about two weeks of experience only.

Hope this helps.

During the winter, we babysat Murphy Brown (a lovely poodle that belongs to our friends Wally and Martha) for 10 days. I had some fun capturing her in some of her favourite spots!
