Marinas near Gallipoli, Turkey

I'm planning to leave Marmaris Yacht Marina very early April 2014 headed for the Gallipoli Peninsula, hoping to be there around 20th - 23rd April, in time to attend the 99th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, particularly by ANZAC forces. Any suggestions please regarding marina's or anchorages in the reasonably close proximity to Gallipoli (including up to reasonable bus or hire car distances). I've done some searching but can't seem to get sufficient up to date information.

The municipal marina at Cannakkle is very convenient. We berthed there in June this year (cost TL140 per night for a 12 metre cat). The ferry terminal is next door and the ferries run regularly. The marina is small with only a few berths for visitors so it may be wise to try and book ahead.

Thanks guys. I have tried to contact the marina at Cannakkle via their web site but after 3 weeks, have not had a reply. Google Earth does show it as being fairly small but I also note there appears to be adequate spots to anchor within a 15 nm circle, and transport to Gallipoli seems abundant. It will be during Meltimi wind season, so I'll need to bear that in mind as well.

Re: Marinas near Gallipoli, Turkey

Hello Alfonzo
Instead of taking my Lagoon to the Gallipoli area, I decided to do a 10-day back-pack trip, use local buses and rail to enjoy the scenery and ancient sites between Marmaris and Gallipoli. It was an amazing experience! There was indeed a small marina at Cannakale which had plenty of room which I could have used, but I think power and water services might have been limited. I stayed in a well known hotel close to the marina called the Crowded House Hotel. I don't have their number but it would be worth calling them as they are most helpful with local information, and run an amazing tour of the Gallipoli battlefields. Ask to go with a guide called Buulant, otherwise know simply as "Bill". The nearby Dardanelles shipping route is very, very busy, so keep a good lookout. There are plenty of places to anchor as well so well worth making some local contact to ask for further information. Good luck!

Thanks for the reply! We've contacted Cannakale Marina and they've assured us they have plenty of space for a 44' Lagoon. I'll post a further update once we get there just in case someone is looking for some info in the future.

Re: Marinas near Gallipoli, Turkey

Wait! Before you book Cannakale, there is a great place right at ANZAC.
It really depends on why you are going and what you want to see.
If its the British lines further south at Helles the Cannakale maybe best, but if you want to see the ANZAC lines then Kabe Tepe would be fascinating for you. Its a fishing port at the southern end of the NZ line (which was in the right flank of the Australian line) and is about a mile or so from ANZAC Cove. So you can walk it. We walked it every day for two weeks and it was a truly fascinating experience to be so close.


The port is at 40 12.1524 N 026 16.1184 E and they only speak Turkish, do not have a radio and its very, very cheap. the dockage is stern to and there is plenty of room for a cat either stern to or alongside. but its not a marina, its a fishing port and ferry terminal (for the ro-ro that goes to an island off the coast which is a wonderful days explore - I don't think they have ever seen a tourist!). You just motor in and loiter inside an gibber like a tourist until someone points out a spot to you (generally on the southern or south eastern wall).
The fishing port has a restaurant that's feeds the workers during the day and the romantics at night... the meal to go for in the day is like a platter de jour and is huge.
