  • Your romantic adventure begins as you step onto a private yacht just before sunset. Sip on a warm beverage while taking in the impressive view of Istanbul's skyline from the water and snuggle up as the evening chill sets in. As night falls, multi-colored lights start to dance on the surface of the water, illuminating the city as well as the historic castles and mansions that line the shore.
  • Afterwards, enjoy a private candlelit dinner on deck, where you'll be served a variety of delicious Turkish dishes, sure to awaken your taste buds. As you share food, stories, and laughter, let the gentle rocking of the yacht further enhance this intimate experience.
  • To wrap up this unforgettable date, stargaze from the deck of the yacht. Marvel at the serene beauty of the night sky as you take in the twinkling stars, making wishes for your shared future. It's a moment of tranquillity and romance that you'll treasure forever.

Preparation steps:

  • Before your date, make sure to check the weather forecast for any sudden changes. Although the yacht will be equipped with heating facilities, you might want to bring an extra layer or two to stay warm and comfortable. Also, plan to arrive early at the meeting point to avoid rushing.
  • Take some time to learn about the historical sites you'll be passing by during the tour. This will allow you to enjoy the tour more as you recognize and appreciate the landmarks. Plus, sharing interesting facts might impress your partner and stir in-depth conversations.
  • The yacht is equipped with everything you'll need, but you might want to bring a camera to capture these unforgettable moments. Alternatively, pack a sketchbook and pencils, turning this romantic excursion into a relaxed artistic session that will leave you with a unique souvenir to remember the day by.

Some tips:

  • Find a romantic playlist that suits the mood of the day, and ask the yacht staff to play it during your tour. Music can greatly enhance the romantic atmosphere, helping you and your partner to connect on a deeper level.
  • During your dinner on the yacht, let your partner taste from your plate and vice versa. This little gesture not only shows that you're comfortable with each other but can also ignite sparks of intimacy and fun.
  • Finally, remember to put away your phones. Giving your partner your full attention will not only help to make them feel loved and appreciated, but it will also enable both of you to truly be in the moment and create wonderful memories together.
