CAptain's Mate of the Month - Discovering Turkey

With the launch of our upgraded CAptain’s Mate app on 1 December 2021, there are plenty of locations to discover around the world. From peaceful anchorages to marinas, estuary moorings to ports, CAptain’s Mate features over 6,500+ locations in 70+ countries along with 20,000+ member contributions.

Our CAptain’s Mate of the Month series will take you on a journey to showcase some of these locations, inspire your cruising and share first-hand knowledge from our members – all accessible via the app and our website.

January 2022 sees us head to Turkey with CA member Jon Terry, who shares his experience of Finike Marina:

"Finike Marina is a great place to spend the winter. Marina facilities are excellent. Harbor is very well protected both because of its design and its location. Large and active liveaboard community.

"Easy walk to groceries, restaurants, and other shopping. Finike isn't a tourist town. So stores are aimed at locals. But you can generally get what you need. And favorable exchange rates make it very inexpensive.

"Antalya Airport is relatively close making visits home easy."
