Want to go cruising along the beautiful Turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea? Want to discover small islands and secluded bays, crystal clear waters and days of endless sunshine? Then jump onboard and indulge in one of our cruises along the mighty Turkish coastline.
The most valuable work-piece that you will see today is Marmaris Castle dating from 1577. There is also a mosque and an 8-room caravansarai covered with arches from the Ottoman Period. The ruins of the Antique times lie on Asar Hill; a small hill located on the northern side of the city. Being one of the best-known touristic places of Turkey Marmaris also has a large marina.
Ekincik Gulf – Dalyan
You will enjoy the natural beauty of the delta as you sail along in the river boat. You will see the ancient Rock Tombs and finally arrive at mud baths to relax and be rejuvenated. A fishing village called Dalyan will be our final destination. Dinner and overnight stay will be in the Gulf of Ekincik.
Tersane Island, Sunken Turkish Bath, Kızıl Island
Because of the wavy seas of Disibilmez and Kurtoglu capes that we have to cross, we will cruise earlier than the other days and reach the world-famous Gocek Gulf. We will anchor at Tersane Island for breakfast and swimming break. This naturally protected harbour was used as the shipyard in Byzantine and Ottoman times.
We will cruise to Manastir (Monastery) Bay. This place is also known as Cleopatra Bay or Sunken Bath Bay due to the beautiful underwater ruins of an old bath. Dinner and overnight stay at Kizil Island.
Kizil Island – Fethiye
Arrive at Fethiye Harbor early in the morning. Fethiye, which was known as Telmessos in the ancient times, was the most important city situated on Lycia’s western border with Caria. It is believed that the city’s name comes from Apollo’s son Telmessos.
As the name suggests, the city was the city of light and was famous for its prophets. We also offer the option of a jeep safari tour in Fethiye. For those who will not join the Safari, the boat will cruise to Samanlik Bay for lunch and swimming. Afterwards around 16:00 the boat will anchor at Ece Saray Marina for dinner and overnight stay.
Gocek Island, Yassıca Island
After breakfast, depart from Fethiye Harbour for Gocek Island. While moving through uniquely beautiful islands, we finally anchor at Yassica Islands. Lunch will be taken in this beautiful chain of little islands.
Snorkeling in the crystal clear water is recommended. Dinner and overnight in a bay amongst the islands of Gocek.
Bedri Rahmi Bay, Sarsala,Aga Limanı
After breakfast, depending on the weather, depart early for Cape Kadirga with swim stops along the way. Kadirga Bay is a quiet picturesque location where we’ll spend ample time swimming. This little bay is a paradise for snorkeling fans.

Local Payment (£140)
We know that it’s not always easy to have sufficient cash to cover the cost of your entire holiday in one go; especially when you book your flight ticket and tour at the same time.

You just need to pay the tour price to purchase your travel and the compulsory local payment will be paid when you join the trip.

The local payment does not cover extra costs like additional meals, entry fees, drinks, tips, personal expenses or other type of travel costs which are not stated in the “Inclusions” section.
