Smooth, calm boat rides and days out

Hello,

I have asked this question in another forum, but thought I would give it it's own question box:

Could someone recommend boat rides that are not jerky - I ask as I have had a spinal operation and am still in the late stages of recovery? I am looking for a smooth, calm boat ride?

How about day trips which don't involve too much walking? Or risk of falling over?

Also, can I ask if there are day trips on the gulet boats? I seem to be only able to find 3 day cruises?

Thanks so much - depart next Wednesday.

With thanks

You can definitely do a day out on a gulet. Also, the Dalyan day trip might work well for you, as the river is smooth as glass.

If you book your 12 Islands trip through Carole & Tayfun the use a large Gulet from Fethiye and they also pick up and drop off at your hotel. The Dalyan trip is good but you do spend quite a while on the coach there and back.

Hope this helps

The coach trip is just over an hour each way. Dalyan is a great day out and the water is much calmer and more predictable than the sea has been so far this year.

Look for a gullet called sugar boat it takes max 25 people and is a wonderful day out and the food is restaurant standard
