Turkish Gulet cruise in Turkish Riviera Style
Combining the allure of cruising along the Turkish Riviera with fascinating land excursions, our Blue Cruise Kas – Kekova – Kas offers a fascinating insight into the natural and human history of the region. Visit the Sunken City of Kekova and explore the Byzantine ruins of Tersane Bay, then soak up the sweeping views from Simena. Witness the 4th-century rock-cut tombs of Myra and enjoy plenty of time swimming and snorkelling in the idyllic waters of Camlik Bay and Gökkaya Bay.
Kas to Kocakari Bay
Transfer to your gulet yacht in Kas Harbour where you'll be greeted by your friendly crew before cruising towards beautiful Camlik Bay. Spend time swimming and snorkelling in the turquoise waters before continuing to Kocakari Bay where we'll have dinner and spend the night.
Kocakari Bay to Gökkaya Bay
After a delicious breakfast on board, we'll cruise towards Gökkaya Bay to spend the morning swimming and soaking up the magnificent surrounds. A range of optional water sports such as jet skiing and banana boating are available before we relax over dinner in the former pirates haven, with the option to party well into the night at the Smugglers Inn Bar.
Gökkaya Bay to Demre Harbour
Enjoy a morning dip before we depart to Demre Harbour and anchor at the port, ready for the day's land excursions. Our first stop is the Lycian Civilization Museum that's scattered with ancient ruins before continuing on to St. Nicholas Church, which is adorned in beautiful frescoes and home to his original tomb. After lunch at a local restaurant, continue on to the ancient city of Myra to explore its 4th-century rock-cut tombs that are carved into the mountain and a stunning antique theatre that is situated nearby. Then it's time to return to the harbour in Demre to cruise back to Gökkaya Bay where we will spend the night.
Gökkaya Bay to Kocakari Bay
Wake with the day's first rays of light to enjoy breakfast on board before we cruise towards the Sunken City of Kekova, a protected Lycian-Roman archaeological site that lies semi-submerged underwater. We'll then make a stop in the traditional Turkish fishing village of Simena, which boasts a striking Byzantine/Ottoman castle and sweeping panoramas of Kekova. Continue on to Tersane Bay (ancient Xera) to go swimming and snorkelling or opt to explore its Byzantine church ruins before we overnight in Kocakari Bay.
Kocakari Bay to Yağlıca Bay
Begin the day early with a sunrise sail to Yağlıca Bay whose emerald waters provide an idyllic setting to enjoy breakfast and go swimming. Then continue on to beautiful İnönü Bay for an afternoon swim or time to relax with a good book on your gulet yacht. We'll spend the night at either Güvercinlik Bay or Kaş Harbor, depending on the weather conditions.
Begin your final day on board with a delicious breakfast and a final swim in the Turkish Riviera waters. Then depart for Kas Harbour where we'll arrive at around 10 am as you say goodbye to your gulet and crew.
