Turkish Riviera with Turkish Gulet in Style
Our Blue cruise Fethiye – Olympos combines the natural beauty of cruising along the Turkish Riviera with fascinating land excursions to explore its ancient ruins and charming harbour towns. Enjoy swimming in beautiful natural bays and a range of active water sports, as well as the opportunity to see the Sunken City of Kekova, the Byzantine ruins of St. Nicholas and the wildlife-filled Butterfly Valley.
Fethiye Harbour to St. Nicholas Island
Transfer to your gulet yacht in Fethiye Harbour for our departure around 11am, heading first to Butterfly Valley (sea conditions permitting) to go swimming and visit this natural reserve that's home to more than 130 different types of butterflies and moths. Then cruise towards Oludeniz (the Blue Lagoon) to soak up its spectacular setting, with the option to go paragliding for a bird's eye view. Our last stop of the day is at St. Nicholas Island where you'll have time to explore its Byzantine ruins before dinner onboard.
St. Nicholas Island to Kekova
Begin the day with a sunrise cruise to Firnaz Bay near Kalkan to enjoy a leisurely breakfast followed by a morning swim. Then cruise to the charismatic harbour town of Kas where we'll have lunch and spend time exploring its cobblestone streets and bohemian boutiques. Once known as Antiphellos, Kas is also home to Lycian rock tombs, ancient sarcophagi and a Roman theatre. End the day in a beautiful bay near Kekova to go swimming before dinner is served onboard.
Sunken City of Kekova
Kekova to Gokkaya Bay
After breakfast on board, depart for the Sunken City of Kekova to glimpse the semi-submerged ruins of this Lycian Roman archaeological site, then continue to the traditional Turkish fishing village of Simena. It boasts a striking Byzantine/Ottoman castle and its streets are blissfully traffic-free! End the day enjoying a range of water sports in Gokkaya Bay before a relaxing dinner in this former pirate haven.
Gokkaya Bay to Olympos
Following breakfast on board, we'll have time to visit the Pirates Cave before cruising to the harbour at Andriace. After lunch, you'll be transferred by bus to the tree houses of Olympos, with a stop for banking and shopping if requested.
