Day 1 Fethiye to St Nicholas Island

We board our gulet around 10am for welcome speeches and an introduction to Captain and crew, depart Fethiye harbour around 11am and cruise to Butterfly Valley for swimming, lunch and an optional hike up to the waterfall. Butterfly Valley is famous for being the home of over 130 different types of butterflies but they only appear in large numbers at certain times of the year so let’s hope we get lucky! Afterwards, we head over to Oludinez, Europe’s most photographed beach and one of the best sites in the world to paraglide. In the evening, we anchor at St. Nicholas Island in time for a short hike up through the island's ruins to witness the amazing sunset. Optional excursion to book locally: Paragliding

Day 2 St Nicholas Island to Kas

Today we are off to Kalkan (Aquarium Bay) for breakfast in a breathtaking spot for swimming and snorkelling in crystal-clear water. We then cruise to Kas, a fishing village with a charming little harbour where we enjoy lunch on the boat before disembarking to explore the local boutique shops, which specialise in handmade jewellery and clothes. We spend the night in one of the secluded bays between Kas and Kekova. Optional excursion to book locally: Scuba diving

Day 3 Kas to Gokkaya Bay

After breakfast we sail to Kekova. First on today’s list is the fascinating Sunken City, a 2000 year-old ancient town which was destroyed by an earthquake. We actually cruise over this protected World Heritage site before crossing to Simena Castle where we climb to the top to take in the magnificent view over the bay. Our overnight stop is in Gokkaya Bay, which also means party time! We can head over to the Smuggler’s Inn to meet up with other travellers and dance through the night and grab a cocktail or 3. A free boat service picks you up and runs regularly all night. If you don’t fancy a party, simply relax and chill out on the gulet.

Day 4 Gokkaya Bay to Olympos

On our last day we enjoy a lazy start, easing any sore heads gently into the morning. After breakfast we spend some time in Pirates Cave (or another nearby bay) for snorkelling and swimming. We will dock at Cayagzi (Andriake) Harbour around 10:30-11:00am for farewells and the chance of a last-minute pic with your onboard family. After disembarking, the day continues with a couple of options: a free bus transfer to the tree house of your choice in Olympos (approx. 90 mins to Olympos). Or, if you are planning to travel onto other destinations, you can be dropped off at Demre bus station before the transfer continues on to Olympos. Buses to Antalya from Demre bus station depart every 30 minutes, buses to Kas or Fethiye depart every hour.

A gulet is a traditionally-built, wooden Turkish motor-yacht which usually holds between 12 to 18 passengers onboard. We strongly feel that they are the ONLY way to see the Turkish coast – imagine waking every morning for breakfast and a swim in idyllic bays and cruising along the coast to a new destination each day. The decks are perfect for sunbathing and jumping into the sea, the food is excellent and there is a tender boat included to shuttle you to and from all the sites such as Butterfly Valley, the stunning Oludeniz beach, the charming fishing village of Kas and several ancient ruins.
 
Of course, it’s not all about just relaxing and sightseeing. There is an onboard bar and opportunities to experience the nightlife and party at venues such as the Smugglers Inn. Sounds like the perfect trip? You bet it is, and with prices starting at £165 GBP per person for a 4-day cruise with full-board (breakfast, lunch and dinner included), it is incredible value!

• Space in a shared cabin

Price excludes:
 
• All drinks onboard
