The climate in Turkey is quite mild, so you can go on vacation here from the end of April until October. In summer, the air temperature is between 23-35 degrees, but sometimes, especially in the southern regions, the thermometer can show 40 and even 50 degrees. In spring and autumn, temperatures can drop to 15-16 degrees. At the same time, there are conditions for sailing on yachts.
from €450 / 7(7) days / 1pers.
Our journey begins in the city of Fethiye, from Dalaman Airport (DLM) you can get here by bus (about 10 euros) or taxi (up to 70 euros). This is a picturesque Turkish town, very cozy and authentic. There is a bazaar, baths with a hamam, a whole quarter of boutiques, a mosque-museum of ancient art, the ruins of an old castle and the amphitheater of Ancient Telmessos. The yacht will be ready by 15:00, but all attractions except the baths are within walking distance. Remember, you MUST bargain in Turkey! We will have a safety briefing and move on to Gemiler Island
We will wake up in the bay at anchor, you can dive into the cleanest sea even before brushing your teeth! In this bay we will spend the whole day. We will have a tour of the abandoned city of Kayakoyu (Greek Karmilassos) - this is a very extraordinary experience - the city is relatively recent, the beginning of the 20th century, and left intact. We will also land and take pictures on Gemiler Island (also known as St. Nicholas Island); - swim in the Valley of the Butterflies and on the Kabak beach (aka Paradise Beach); We will spend the night in the atmospheric restaurant Capi Creek.
In the morning we will dive into the sea before brushing our teeth. Then sail to Ekinchik, the total length of the journey is almost 5 hours, so we will have time to swim behind the yacht on the ropes, throw spinning and of course we will take plenty of sea baths! And for the night we will stop at Mai Marina: The buildings of this Marina (hotel, restaurant, shop) are made of stone just like in medieval Japan - very unusual, there are also the remains of old fortifications (tower, powder warehouse, prayer room) - all this is covered with greenery, and tame turkeys walk around the territory. We will collect oysters in the bay, visit a restaurant in the Marina or have a walk around the city
Today we will have a full day excursion along the Dalyan River - one of the most eventful excursions. You will be taken to the lake with therapeutic mud, if you want to take mud baths, you can wash off the mud in showers or right in the lake and lie down in the thermal pool. You can tickle your feet by giving them to small fish for peeling. You will go on boats through the reeds to the ancient Lycian tombs, see the remains of the residence of the old kings. You will visit the place where the river and lake merge with the sea. And you can swim where you want - fresh water or sea water - as you please. Big crabs are running along the shore of the lake 🙂 Optional excursion is € 50 per person. For the night we will go to the island of Baba Adasy. On the island there are rabbits and goats
We will sail to the beautiful island of Yassica, which is actually 3 small islets and 2 reefs and resembles the Caribbean "Tobago Cays".
We will spend the night at anchor in this archipelago, or in a restaurant nearby
In the morning we will sail to the Cleopatra Baths. They are ideal for snorkeling: schools of fish, sponges of different species and other marine animals live here! For the night we will go to a restaurant nearby, from where you can take a great walk up the hill.
Today we will sail, swim behind a yacht on ropes, go bungee jumping, spinning, freediving, in a word, we will do everything that we usually do. Today we will finish our trip in Gocek. It is important to arrive at the port by 18:00, we will spend one more night on the yacht, and in the morning we will check out and say goodbye
