For Single Travellers, Couples and Small Family Groups
Onboard Cevri Hasan III

Jenny Day & Captain MustafaJenny Day has been organising small group holidays to Turkey for over 30 years, particularly gulet holidays along the Turkish coastline. The emphasis has always been on achieving a ‘house party’ style atmosphere, with an eclectic mix of single travellers and couples.  All are likely to be kindred spirits who enjoy good conversation and humour, delicious food and enjoy exploring the beautiful and fascinating terrain. The Cevri Hasan III, under the direction of captain/owner Mustafa, has been home to these holidays since 1992. Cabins can be booked on an individual basis. Along the extensive coastline, there are wild walks along deserted trails for those who like to keep active, remote villages and archaeological sites to explore, plus numerous beautiful anchorages. A variety of itineraries are carefully planned, catering to the varying interests of DayDreams travellers. Over the years, Jenny has researched and led many groups around the Greek Dodecanese islands and along the Turkish coastline. Her immense knowledge has enabled us to compile a list of ‘best itinerary options’.

Imagine waking in the morning with the sun streaming through the porthole and slipping over the side of the boat for a swim before breakfast. And what a breakfast; irresistible Turkish yoghurt and honey, eggs any way you want, fruit, cheeses, olives, luscious tomatoes and local breads. Anchor up, off you go to a beautiful bay for a swim, or potter about on a canoe. A delicious lunch follows, then more swimming and relaxing in the sun. Winds permitting, the sails might go up, as we move along the coast to another magical setting for dinner and an overnight stay. Dinners feature barbeques, local specialities, different mezze and a wonderful variety of Turkish home cooking; all eaten under the stars.

DayDreams Travel was founded by Jenny Day in 1987 following a 5-day/5 star corporate weekend to Istanbul for 100 clients from her London based PR consultancy. Using her expert organisational skills  she put together several  gulet charters. They were so successful the word spread and her dream of offering a special style of holiday  to a wider audience become a reality.


"Solo sailor stuck with five seductive sirens sailing the seas surrounding Samos, super."  David Goodall from Devon travelled on the June Travel Club holiday on board Cevri Hasan III June 2016

"Our last trip was 11 years ago - the first 23 years ago.  It is still as magnificient, thank you Jenny for persuading us we are not too old !! and as ever thanks to wonderful crew."  David & Ann Stranack from London travelled in May 2016

"A first holiday on a gulet.  Fantastic!  Great new friends and much laughter.  We were properly looked after by the crew and Jenny’s knowledge, history and especially the archaeology really made the holiday.  Thank you" David and Wendy Gliddon from Somerset travelled in September 2016
