Depart for Fethiye Bay with a convenient pickup at your central Fethiye hotel by air-conditioned vehicle. At the marina, meet your expert crew and step aboard the gleaming double-decker sailboat to begin your island-hoping journey along Turkey’s stunning Turquoise Coast. Brace yourself for a day that at once promises to be both relaxing and exciting. Throughout the day, the boat will stop at five or six different stops.
Once you find your ideal perch aboard the boat, settle in, kick back and enjoy the view as you cruise Fethiye Bay in style. Catch some rays, take a dip in the warm blue waters, or peer across the horizon looking for dolphins, turtles and even flying fish.
Though some itineraries vary, most will visit the Flat Islands, one of the most amazing spots in the bay, with shallow waters in tiny islets that’s ideal for swimming. Swim in the crystal waters or indulge in a watersport activitiy (own expense) like water-skiing or ringo rides.
Look forward to other stops throughout the day, such as Cavy Bay that boasts a natural sea cave and Göbün Bay or Cavy Bay. You may also see Dockyard Island, which has a fascinating nautical history relating to old shipbuilders and Greco-Ottoman ruins that lie not far from the beach. During your cruise, refuel with lunch onboard the boat. Indulge in ocean-fresh foods such as grilled fish or opt for chicken. Drinks from the bar at your own expense.
Finally, drop anchor at Red Island or Samanlik Bay—either is a postcard-perfect way to end the day, their waters teeming with sea life and the surface sparkling in the sunlight. Take in the last of the views as you head back to the marina and say farewell to your skipper, then enjoy a relaxing ride back to your hotel.
