Fethiye Harbour to St. Nicholas Island
After breakfast, we'll cruise along the stunning coast of the Fethiye Peninsula, stopping for lunch en route in a secluded bay. If the sea conditions are favourable, we'll sail to beautiful Butterfly Valley & Oludeniz to go sightseeing and swim in the turquoise waters. We'll spend the night moored near St. Nicholas Island where you're invited to explore the ruins of its Byzantine settlement as the sun slowly sinks below the horizon.
St. Nicholas Island to Kas
Begin the day early with an excursion to Yesilkoy where we'll enjoy a leisurely breakfast and have time to swim in this beautiful bay surrounded by olive groves. Then it's time to cruise towards the charismatic harbour town of Kas to wander its cobblestone streets and go shopping in the bohemian boutiques before spending the night moored in the harbour.
Kas to Ucagiz
Begin the day with an invigorating climb up to the castle on Simena, which offers spectacular views of the ancient city. A single Lycian sarcophagus perches atop a pedestal in the middle of the bay and is watched over by an ancient theatre carved into the rock. We'll spend the night near Ucagiz in a stunning wide bay that's surrounded by rolling, green hills.
Ucagiz to Gokkaya
As you enjoy breakfast on board your gulet yacht, we'll cruise along the Mediterranean coast to explore the sunken ruins of Kekova. Spend time swimming in the warm waters before lunch at Tersane Bay where you'll have time to visit the ruins of its Byzantine church and a Roman dockyard that sprawls along the beach. Then continue sailing to Gokkaya where we will spend the night.
Gokkaya to Kalkan
Today begins with a short cruise to the sheltered bay at Bayindir Limani where you'll have plenty of time to swim and soak up the magnificent setting.

You may embark on an optional side trip to nearby Patara Beach or opt to visit the ruins at Xanthos and Letoon.
Kalkan to Batikkaya Bay
Begin the day with an early start to explore the natural bay at Camli Burun, which nestles at the base of pine-clad hills. Spend time swimming, sunbathing and relaxing before your final night in Batikkaya Bay.
