Embark on a highlight cruise of the picturesque coast, from Antalya to Fethiye, experiencing the local culture as you savor the sea’s unmatched scenery and peaceful atmosphere.
Antalya / Fethiye
Standard & Master
This private blue cruise reveals the most beautiful locations along the Turkish Mediterranean coast. It packs a lot of sightseeing and leisure time at the beach, sprinkled with just enough historical attractions to leave a lasting impression on your mind. Whether you choose to spend the majority of your time in the waters and exploring or engaging in a variety of fun activities during stops, you can be sure that you’re getting the most out of your tour.
Your adventurous cruise starts in the 5th largest city in Turkey and the largest on the Mediterranean coast, the majestic Antalya. Once you arrive, you will have enough time to explore this historic town.
Places like the Old Town (Kaleici) make for an excellent strolling excursion. The cobblestone streets and whitewashed Ottoman mansions of this mazy neighborhood allow you to savor its charming old-world ambiance.
You can also visit the Antalya Museum and view its dazzling exhibitions detailing Turkey’s rich and complicated history, and head over to the city’s most distinctive landmark, the Yivli Minare (fluted minaret). This 13th-century structure is one of the finest examples of Seljuk architecture and makes for an intriguing sight. Other attractions worth your visit include Hadrian’s Gate, the stunning theatre at Aspendos, Perge, and many more.
Head over to the city’s white-sand beaches and unwind in the cool waters. In the evening, trek to the Old Harbor for some shopping and a breathtaking view of the sun setting over the sea. Return to your yacht for dinner and overnight stay.
Enjoy a delicious breakfast on board after which, you will explore the other attractions that you might have missed in Antalya or spend some time swimming and relaxing on its beautiful beaches. From there, sail to the ancient city of Phaselis, sitting on a peninsula surrounded by three stunning bays.
Around 2,000 years ago, Phaselis was a thriving port town trading in rose oil, perfumes, and timber cut from the surrounding forests. Today, only ruins remain of the once-prosperous town, but the peninsula’s beauty and the surrounding bays have made it a protected area. Therefore, you will pay a small entrance fee before gaining access to the National Park.
There isn’t much to do in the park, but whatever little experiences available make for a wholesome experience. You can splash in the turquoise sea or enjoy a quiet rest on one of the pebbly beaches. A stroll through the ruins is also super romantic and refreshing, thanks to the fragrant pines that shade the three bays. Explore the Agora, Harbor Way, Roman baths, and a small pretty theater in the ruins.
After breakfast, cruise to the wide-open bay of Porto Ceneviz. Rocks rise horizontally from the sea, giving Portor Ceneviz a protected feel and calm, warm waters. If you desire some privacy during your leisure, this is an excellent stop to enjoy that. There are also several hidden coves in the bay that make for great swimming and relaxation spots.
A short distance from its coast is the magical ruins of the ancient city of Olympos from the days of the Lycian empire. To get there, you will have to take a short trek to the valley where the ruins sit. And while the Olympos ruins are an excellent attraction on their own, many people are also drawn here by the area’s natural aesthetic.
There are many trees, fruits, and herbs growing in the region and even the occasional wild animal, making this the perfect retreat for those looking to mix the sea, history, and nature in their vacation. And the good news is you won’t have to deal with large crowds of tourists during your visit.
After exploring the ruins and learning a little about the Lycian Empire, return to your yacht and enjoy a delicious dinner.
Your yacht will then take you to Gokkaya Bay, a stunning location that has been under special protection since 1990. It is surrounded by rugged hills full of green trees and shrubs, allowing you to enjoy undisturbed natural beauty as you swim in the dazzling blue sea. You can also spend some time relaxing on the white sandy beaches of the bay under the warm Mediterranean sun.
The waters around the bay are also home to the Sunken City of Kekova, once a thriving seaside village but destroyed when an earthquake devastated the area. The ruins decorate the crystal-clear waters and make for an excellent swimming and snorkeling spot.
The bay is home to a traditional fishing town called Ucagiz, which you can visit and eat at one of its excellent fish restaurants. After entertaining your tastebuds, explore the other Lycian ruins within the bay- Simena Castle in Kalekoy. Around the castle, explore the ancient burial tombs, a village, and a marina.
After a day of swimming and exploring, return to your yacht for the night.
Today’s boat trip takes us to the magnificent Aperlai Ancient city, a small ancient Lycian port. The town is only accessible by boat and makes for an excellent swimming and historical excursion. Swim in the turquoise waters and relax on the beach before setting out to explore the impressive ruins.
Millenia ago, Aperlai was famous for its shellfish industry which was used to produce purple dyes. Its ancient walls, which run from the coastline into the hillside in stunning fashion, are the most magnificent sights. You can also explore the old harbor and visit the remains of two Roman baths nearby.
Swim a little more and spend the night in the bay.
Today’s cruise takes us to the small port town of Kas, where you will spend time swimming, diving, and exploring the beautiful town. The cobblestone streets are lined with beautiful Ottoman houses, trendy bars, and top-class jewelry stores. You can also explore ancient sites scattered throughout Kas, including a small theater and ancient Lycian tombs.
Sail to Firnaz Bay near Kalkan, where you will swim and enjoy the stunning beaches with incredible views of the area. From here, sail to the most breathtaking of beaches, Oludeniz beach. Anchor in the blue lagoon and enjoy the clear waters and clean beaches of the lagoon, with enough time to snorkel, swim, snorkel, and sunbathe.
Hike to the surrounding mountains and enjoy stunning views of the lagoon and Oludeniz beach, and you can even paraglide over the incredible beach.
Early morning sail to Fethiye, where you will disembark after breakfast and private transfer to the airport for the next destination or flight back home via Istanbul.
We prefer to book domestic air tickets to have better control over connections and embarkation & disembarkation times. However, if you choose to book on your own, please let us know to suggest the best possible options.
Exactly! And that is the best way to enjoy the closeby sites once you are there as Turkey offers numerous experiences to enjoy.
Yacht rental fee: Avg. an ok gulet starts from 9000+ EUR total, including all meals for a couple or a family of four. However, once you select this route and advise the travel dates, we will check the availability of different gulets (ranging up to 180,000 EUR total for a week for the most luxurious options) and send you all the detailed info on these available yachts.
Beverages: while you can bring your favorites, we will send you a shopping list for drinks as well. The crew will do the shopping on your behalf and hand you the supermarket receipt on arrival. The idea is all about the time of cooling it all and getting your cold drinks ready before arrival.
Watersports & Equipment: Flippers, snorkels, fishing tackle, cards, and board games available onboard. Some gulets even come with kayaks, or Ringo, too. However, if you would like to enjoy one of the days with more watersports such as jet-skis, bananas, etc., it is also available at an extra charge.
Tipping: the best judgment is always all yours, and we do recommend %7 to %10 of the total yacht rental fee.
Availability: gulets are chartered Saturday – Saturday, and if your travel calendar doesn’t match, we will still plan the best possible options.
Route: the recommended itinerary above is just a sample, and depending on the weather conditions or crowds, the captain will pick different alternatives. Again, once you are on board, you can discuss and ask for other reasonable options for sure.
