is situated at Kalanci Boğaz, by the small village of Atakoy on the
south side of Marmaris Bay.
It's a large, well appointed marina with room for approx. 800 vessels
afloat and 1000 on the hard. The holiday resort of Marmaris is 8km away by road and can be accessed
by ferry, taxi or dolmuş - or you can cycle/walk if you are of a

them here. Contracts are available on a daily, monthly, six

on site and fairly well stocked for your lift out requirements but
somewhat lacking in many other items. There are however, many more
swindleries in town.
Called a 'supermarket' but not in the sense of Tesco's etc. Has
basic requirements, but for major shops you are better off going into
town, to either Tansaş or Kipa supermarkets.
About 10 metres to the left of the main security gate.

modern and cleaned regularly throughout the day. Ask your
neighbour for the location of your nearest one.
is generally monitored by all in the marina and it's the channel to use
when calling friends. Once you've made contact, switch to another
channel to hold your conversation, avoiding Channels 06 (Netsel Marina
working channel) and 72 (Yacht Marine working channel). If you
remain on channel 69, the whole of Marmaris Bay will hear your
and other events and are organised during the winter months for the liveaboard
community. Listen to channel 69 for details.
Fuel. Although the fuel dock is 'without fuel' for some
political reason, it can be obtained via tanker, just add your name and
amount required, to the list in the marina reception and as soon as
enough is required, a tanker will be despatched. You can then fill
your jerry cans from the tanker. Alternatively, Netsel Marina in
town has a fuel dock.
The convenience store has some bottles, or if your type isn't there you
can get most from 'Gas Street' in town.
is free! In addition, there are also a couple of computers in
reception, connected to printers etc. Yasin is the I.T. man, and
can be found in his office, on the right between the reception and the main office.
There is also an intranet down-loadable DVD library, with no charge (we like
free!!) should you wish to download films to your laptop. Ask Yasin for details.
(Update.......Yasin left marina employment March 2009, replaced by a new
This is situated about 50 metres to the left of the security gate and
staffed by local girls. Drop your laundry there in the mornings,
collect a ticket which you then need to take to reception in the main
building - pay the girl there and keep your stub ticket which you will
need to collect your finished laundry that afternoon or the following
day. There are also a couple of 'self service' machines for which
you will need tokens, again from reception. On the side of the
laundry building is a large hand wash sink.
Situated above the bar and contains a good selection of books and
magazines in various languages. There are also two pool tables in
the same room.
also available for use by yotties. The lunch and dinner menus
change daily and are posted in the window of reception. It's self
service, just pay the guy at the desk and grab a tray. It's a
cheap meal if you don't fancy cooking onboard or eating in the
restaurant. The food is sometimes good, sometimes a little 'Turkish!'.
There are workshops within the marina who will carry out all sorts of
work and many more in Marmaris itself. Ask around, listen to the
'net' or take a look through the yellow folder in reception, in which
yotties give their opinions, good and bad, about local contractors.
A daily (Monday to Saturday) 'net' is broadcast at 9am on VHF channel 69
which details such things as emergency medical/dental requests, marina
safety issues, hi's and goodbye's (arrivals and departures), social
events, airport taxi sharing, services and information required,
articles wanted or for sale. It's a good place to hear about all
what's going on within the Marmaris Bay area. (Netsel marina in
town also take part in the net)
Want to go into town?
There is a free
service to Marmaris Town, which leaves from the root of 'Hotel' pontoon
(to the right of the travel hoist). It runs a return trip, twice
daily. In summer it leaves the marina at 0840 and 1700
and in winter at 0815 and 1630. For return times, add 20 minutes
respectively. Maximum number of passengers is 34 on a 'first come,
first served' basis - so be there early!
You are not normally permitted to take luggage or large boat parts
available from the small office to the left of the security gate, but
it's an expensive ride. Far better to get the
(a small mini-bus)
from the stop opposite the gate, which will drop you in the town centre,
right by Tansaş supermarket. Timetables change according to the
season and demand but generally the service runs hourly in Winter, half
hourly in Spring and Autumn and every 20mins in Summer. Current timetables are posted in the marina
office window, on the dolmuş stop and inside each dolmuş.
As with the ferry, you are not permitted to take luggage on
the dolmuş (in theory!) Neither are you allowed to board with fuel
or gas - so if you buy gas in town, make sure it's concealed in a
rucksack or similar before boarding.
