Highlights
    What to Expect
    Begin your experience with a pickup from your centrally located Ovacik and Hisaronu hotel and travel by air-conditioned minivan to the departure pier in Ölüdeniz.

    On arrival, board your comfortable boat and settle on deck as you head out to sea. Sit back and admire the breathtaking views as you pass the mountains and bays that fringe Ölüdeniz' spectacular shores. Revel in the sea breezes and perhaps hone your tan as you sail.

    Drop anchor at the Blue Cave, a natural rock grotto known for its bright blue waters. Grab the chance for a swim and then hop back on board to continue to Butterfly Valley.

    Take in the sight of the steep canyon as you approach and go ashore to enjoy around two hours of free time to explore or relax as you wish. Sunbathe or swim from the beach or follow the trail into the gorge.

    As you walk, watch for the bright-colored butterflies that lend the valley its name — with luck, you might spot a rare tiger butterfly. If you’re feeling energetic, trek further up into the gorge to see the waterfalls at the head of the valley.

    Return to your boat and enjoy a tasty included lunch of grilled fish and chicken with rice and salad, washed down with drinks (own expense).

    After lunch, visit St Nicholas Island, a rocky islet topped by the ruins of 4th-century churches. Disembark and spend some free time here, perhaps climbing the hill to see the relics and absorb the panoramic views.

    Reconvene back on the boat and continue to Cold Spring Bay, where cold fresh water springs flow into the sea. Cool off with a swim in the refreshing crystal waters before cruising back to Ölüdeniz. Your trip then ends with a hotel drop-off in hotel.

    The chicken at lunch was also very good (and I don't usually eat chicken). Just be prepared to swim a lot!

    I have put a full review under Focus Tours but although the scenery is lovely everything else was a disaster from beginning to end. We were made to feel unsafe, uncomfortable and unwelcome. You are much better going from Fethiye on the 12 island trip...More

    Yes you can. Lots of people offering these trips on the promenade at very reasonable prices. We found the 12 island trip from Fethiye better though. Our boat on the butterfly trip was over crowded and we were made to feel... More

    Each stop is about 30minutes to 1 hour . This is much better than the 12 island boat trip as you see more and the islands are different to one another. You don't have to book in advance, you may find cheaper in Oludeniz... More
