Hunting & Yachting

http://www.turkyacht.com/cms/hunting/TROPHY HUNTING SAFARIS has the biggest and the only reserve (119.000 ha) in Turkey, having a border to the Mediterranean Sea. This place is a reserve with full of wild boars that never heard a gunshot before.

Sea, sun and the natural unspoiled beauty of our Aegean and Mediterranean coasts, moonlight and huge tuskers, these are the essentials for a delightful hunting with a traditional luxury gulet boat!
The friendly captain, his crew and our professional wild boar guides will keep their eyes open for you during this exciting cruising trip. On board, you and your friends will feel in a dream while shifting from bay to bay. Starting prior 10-12 days of your arrival our 1×1 hunting guides will start their jobs to feed the tuskers on the route of your sailing trip on land in collaboration with the captain of your yacht. So when you arrive, all that your captain needs to do will be to anchor or tie the yacht to one of the pine trees leaping to the sea at a bay closest to the tusker’s feeding spots.

Cruising along the beautiful rocky coastline, you will be in the untouched bays of the wild, admiring the breeze of the pine forests and the striking flora of the Mediterranean coasts.
Now and then you may cool yourself in the crystal clear sea water snorkeling, the beauties of the depths and enjoy the sun on the deck with its mystical natural beauty with your family or friends. You may enjoy your lunch or dinner in a small local fishermen’s restaurant with daily caught fish and good wine. And the nights are prone to your wild boar hunts.

When the sun is set, our guides will be waiting for you to take you for a short drive where the tuskers come every night for their regular nightly feast.
You will be surprised to find out about the advantages of travelling with a yacht in reaching the unspoiled corners of the mountains leaning to the sea.
Do not miss this exceptional adventure together that comes with an unforgettable hunt.
Blue Voyage and Wild Boar Hunt

TROFE Hunting Safaris is the owner of 2 wild boar hunting grounds of total 245.000 hectares within the coastal area of the Aegean and Mediterranean seas. We use this to our advantage and organise unforgettable hunting holidays so, on this programme, you can spend your daytime visiting the marvellous and unique crystal clear coves of our breath-taking coastline where you can swim, fish, do water sports and sunbathe. After sunset you will have the opportunity to go ashore with our hunting guide and have the opportunity to hunt wild boars with record fang length so that you can combine a special holiday on a gulet with your family and friends while still enjoying the thrill of your passion for hunting! Just like our standard stalking hunts, our professional guides will prepare the hunting grounds for you – the only difference will be that instead of staying at hotels you and your family or group of friends will have the magnificent opportunity to stay on de-luxe gulets. The best period to combine wild boar hunting with a Blue Voyage experience is between May and October. Every wild boar hunter must experience this at least once in his lifetime.

You can choose to hire a de-luxe or ultra-de-luxe type gulet for one week from our company. The size of our gulets are 22m, 26m and 30m long with 4, 6 or 8 cabins. All our gulets have 2 master cabins with a Jacuzzi and all cabins have their own shower and toilet. They also have central cooling system, plasma TV and double beds. All our crews are specially trained and include a qualified cook to ensure that you have the very best of cruising experience.

Myra Demre

yacht turkey holidaysMyra features some of the most impressive and well preserved Lycian monuments in the country. These include an excellent collection of rock tombs and an imposing 2nd century theater.

Many of the tombs have log cabin features carved into the rock, presumably reflecting the domestic architecture of the period. A few easily accessible ones have inscriptions in the Lycian language. Carvings above are mostly in poor repair but the overall effect of this jumble of the architecture of death is dramatic.

The theater, like many others in major Roman cities, was later converted into an arena for gladiator fights and wild animal shows. Many carvings and inscriptions in the theater are still visible, and cavernous tunnels and access ways to the side have been cleared. While much of the seating is intact, the stage building is partly collapsed. A macabre set of three carved masks, presumably from the frieze, lies among the jumble of remains in the approach to the theater.

Today Demre is an important agricultural town on the Mediterranean coast of Anatolia. Around Demre there are also ruins of Andriake on Çayagzi beach and Kekova, Simena and Teimussa which are accessible by a short boat ride or some car driving.
