Turkish Riviera with Turkish Gulet in Style
Our Blue cruise Olympos – Fethiye is an unforgettable four days exploring the Turkish Riviera from both sea and land. Witness the Sunken City of Kekova, the Byzantine ruins of St. Nicholas and the wildlife-filled Butterfly Valley, with plenty of time to go swimming in the beautiful natural bays and enjoy a range of active water sports.
Olympos to Gokkaya Bay
You'll be picked up from Olympos between 10 and 11am and transferred to the harbour at Demre for our departure in the early afternoon. Our first stop is Pirates Cave before continuing on to the Sunken City of Kekova to glimpse the semi-submerged ruins of this Lycian Roman archaeological site. You'll have time to explore the traffic-free streets of Simena, a traditional Turkish fishing village that features a striking Byzantine/Ottoman castle before continuing to Gokkaya Bay where you can enjoy a range of water sports before dinner.
Gokkaya Bay to Kalkan
Begin the day in the charismatic harbour town of Kas to 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. Continue on to Firnaz Bay near Kalkan where you'll have time to swim before dinner is served.
Kalkan to St. Nicholas Island
Around sunrise we'll depart for 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 Fethiye Harbour
After breakfast on board, we'll depart for Samanlik Bay to go swimming and enjoy a leisurely lunch before our final sail into Fethiye Harbour where we'll arrive between 1 and 3pm.
