Gökova Sailing Academy is a sailing school that was founded by Cumhur Jim Gökova, who is the second person in Turkey to sail around the world, and the                                   first person to sail it twice. The academy is a family business, run by the members of the family. It was founded in 1988 and since then, we have personally introduced over 20,000 people to the world of sailing. We are the most active sailing school in Turkey, running all year round and covering a wide range of topics from basic sailing courses to Celestial Navigation.

to About



All of the training that take place at the Academy, both for recreational and professional students, happens on board with 100% real examples and scenarios. The moment you step onto the boat, you are the captain. The instructor is only there to assist you and give you necessary instructions. Our weekly programs start on Saturdays from our base in Marmaris Netsel Marina, and ends on Friday of the same week. You can check our destinations page to see where we sail to on regular basis. 

We take advantage of every moment at our weekly courses. Everyday we sail to a different bay or island. Every place we go to, we manage to find somewhere to climb, do yoga, swim and exercise. So you can take the most out of your vacation.

All level sailing courses 52 weeks a year


650 euro per person 1 week.
