When you have the spare time to plan and organize a group gulet charter, getting everyone together to travel during the same week as everyone else in the group can be difficult - especially if you all live in different parts of the globe. However for many this is possible if planning begins in advance.
There are 3 seasons where blue cruises begin during the middle of April, right up until the end of October. The gulet charter prices reflect this as well. While the peak season is summer, mid Spring is also a very popular time of year for booking a gulet cruise.
Therefore if you need to base your best time for a gulet cruise on budget, the early Spring and early Fall is when you will find the cheapest gulet rental prices. You might want to wait for last minute deals. But this only narrows the choice in gulet selection. Sometimes a very early booking can offer very good prices as well. However it is not all that feasible with the more popular gulets which do get fully booked for the season - early.
The weather is a very important factor in choosing the time of year for a blue cruise. The Spring months are ideal is the month of October. Travelers can still enjoy the refreshing waters, but do need to realize that it is much cooler in the mornings and evenings.
The Summer, beginning in late July and August are the hottest months. If you are planning a holiday with extra activities such as biking and hiking, then these months are too hot for many to consider booking.
June is probably the best kind of weather for everything from swimming, land excursions while the temperatures are moderate, airfare is reasonable, and there isn't much for boat traffic.
The seas are also calmer during this month. July, August and also part of September can prove to make sea voyage somewhat rough - depending on what region your itinerary is planned due to the Meltemi winds.
