    What to Expect
    Meet your personal yacht at a pier on Istanbul’s European waterfront, and sip a cup of coffee or tea as the crew steers into the Bosphorus Strait. Try to spot the most distinctive landmarks in Istanbul, from the iconic domes of Hagia Sophia to dozens of mosques and minarets. Watch the city come to life as the sun goes down, and enjoy views of sparkling lights on the water.

    This private cruise is a romantic experience for couples, but accommodates up to 12 guests and is well suited to families or groups of friends. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion, planning an engagement, or simply looking for an exclusive, scenic way to experience the Istanbul waterfront, this private Bosphorus yacht cruise is an unforgettable experience.

    Finish your time on the water on the European side of Istanbul, where you’ll find endless places to kick off the night with dinner or a drink.
