Wallow in the sun, scenery and see-through waters of Turkey’s Turquoise Coast on this full-day boat cruise from Fethiye. Relax on deck as your double-decker boat slips its moorings and cruises over the crystal waters of Fethiye Bay to the 12 Islands, a medley of gorgeous islands and bays. Stop to swim, snorkel or sunbathe at gems such as Dockyard Island, Göbün Bay and the Flat Islands; enjoy a hearty onboard lunch along with drinks (own expense) from the bar, and watch for dolphins, flying fish and turtles as you sail.
Leave your centrally located Fethiye hotel by air-conditioned vehicle and travel to the marina. Meet the friendly crew and board the comfortable double-decker sailboat for your cruise. Set sail and enjoy an idyllic day of island hopping around Fethiye Bay. As you cruise, kick back on deck, perhaps soaking up the sun and views, or simply watching for flying fish, dolphins and sea turtles in the iridescent waters.Along the way, your boat will anchor at five or six different islands and bays so you can swim, snorkel or simply lounge on the beach. Most cruises stop at the Flat Islands, a cluster of tiny islets washed by sparkling shallows. Laze on the shore, wade between the largest and smallest island, or take advantage of the watersports (own expense) available, including ringo rides and water-skiing.Other stops you can look forward to include the stunning inlets of Göbün Bay or Cavy Bay. Immerse yourself in clear waters of either stop, and at Cavy Bay, view the natural sea cave, complete with its own wave-carved steps.You may also visit Dockyard Island, where the picture-postcard bay was once used for shipbuilding due to its shallow waters. Take a dip here or perhaps go ashore to explore the Greco-Ottoman ruins near the beach.Around midway through your cruise, enjoy an onboard lunch of foods such as grilled fish or chicken and refresh with drinks (own expense) from the bar.Lastly, your skipper will stop at either Red Island or Samanlik Bay. Both these beauty spots boast idyllic, fish-filled waters, so make the most of your final stop with a swim or snorkel from the boat.Later, enjoy the sunset views over a final drink before you return to the marina. Your trip then ends with a hotel drop-off.
