Travelling on a standard gulet, this cruise has something for everyone. From the ancient cities and sights to crystal clear waters for swimming and snorkelling.
You will meet your boat in Kas Harbour to enjoy lunch with your fellow passengers. Cruising out of Kas you will get to enjoy your first night on the boat in a beautiful bay with plenty of time for swimming and enjoying the pristine coastline. The following morning you will wake up in Butterfly Valley where you can take the time to hike in the valley or just in enjoy the vivid blue ocean for a swim. You will then cruise past Europe’s most photographed beach, Oludeniz, anchoring on the back side of the Blue Lagoon before you will finally anchor down at St Nicholas Island, where you can go and explore the ruins and enjoy your last night on the boat. Whilst on your cruise you will be offered the chance to undertake the optional activity of paragliding, please speak to the office crew online to pre-book this in or your friendly crew who will welcome you on board.
These shorter cruises down to Fethiye are carried out on a standard Turkish sailing gulet. They all motor along with engines these days otherwise the distances could not be travelled. These lovely Turkish yachts are traditional to this part of Turkey and offer you all your own private bathroom facilities in a double or twin cabin.
