Yachts visiting Göcek on the Turkish Turquoise Coast no longer have to stop first at Fethiye or some other Turkish city to clear customs.

Göcek has now been designated a port of entry into Turkey, with its own customs office that opened July 22, according to BWA Yachting Turkey, a yachting service provider with offices in the Med, Caribbean and Americas.
