Farout Fethiye-Olympos was the highlight of a 6 month trip through Europe, which says a lot. The value is fantastic- if you want to do the itinerary by land, with maybe a day trip by boat, you end up reaching or exceeding the 165 euros it cost (when considering accomodation, meals, transport). The entire trip is smooth and professional. The staff are excellent- professional, competent, friendly and enthusiastic. The food was some of the best I've had in Turkey and there was more than enough of it. The itinerary covers most, if not all of what you would want to do between Fethiye and Olympos, with great efficiency. The ship was nice, clean and new. There was plenty of space, although the rooms could get pretty filled with exhaust at times. We slept on the deck every night though.
This is NOT a tour. They do not explain much in terms of the sights or history. Our crew spoke minimal English. If these two things are problematic, simply don't book the trip. It's a chance to see the beautiful stretch of coast between Fethiye and Olympos, all the while being served excellent food, swimming and snorkelling in isolated bays, seeing major and not so major attractions, and travelling by BOAT! It all felt very genuine and authentic, much more so than other boat trips we took in Turkey (ex. Dalyan trip from Marmaris).

I recently did this sail from Olympos to Fethiye with 4 of my friends. We were recommended Farout Yachting from someone and now after our experience we would recommend this sail to anyone considering doing a sail or even visiting Turkey. It was a very relaxing holiday with days spent sunbaking on the boat, swimming in the crystal blue water and eating the delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner that was prepared fresh every day on boat. The food was the yummies we had on the whole of our Turkey holiday. My friends and I slept above deck under the stars and recommend this rather thank sleeping in the stuffy pokey cabins. Overall the trip was one of the best I've done so far and even hope to go back next year.
We had 13 people on our cruise and a great range of people, not party fiends like other companies.
A typical day would start with a quick jump over board where we anchored for the night before a great turkish breakfast (and also omlettes too). Then another swim before leaving for the first sight of the day. Spend 2 hrs there come back to boat and then move to a nice spot for anothet great lunch. Swim again then move to another sight or anchor at a new spot for afternoon and then dinner. This was the best food we had in turkey.
Overall it was worth every cent.
Also drinks are great value too (except pirate bar which was still nice) about 6 tl for a beer and .5 tl for water.
If I could do one thing in turkey it would be this
