Itinerary

Raise anchor in Fethiye and sail out into Samanlik Bay aboard a gulet - a traditional Turkish boat. Settle into the comfortable cabin and get acquainted with the crew and fellow travellers. Enjoy a tasty lunch of Turkish delicacies, and then call into Oludeniz, a picture-perfect lagoon surrounded by densely forested hills and flanked by a long, sandy beach. While here, it's highly recommended to visit St Nicholas Island and Butterfly Valley before watching the sun set over the Mediterranean.
Cruising the azure sea off the coast of Turkey must be the ultimate in relaxation. Snorkel and swim in the warm waters or simply relax up on deck with a good book in hand. Learn how to play backgammon - there will never be a better backdrop for board games than this! Spend time anchored at Kalkan, Kas and Kekova. These quaint seaside towns offer an authentic Turkish coastal experience, so why not feast on fresh seafood by the shore or visit a teahouse to meet the locals. End the day watching the sun melt into the ocean and fall asleep to the gentle rocking of the waves.
Visit the Pirates' Cave, and then enjoy a swim and a final lunch on board before pulling into the harbour and returning to dry land. Transfer to the archaeological site of Myra and visit Demre to see St Nicholas Church. Afterwards, journey to laidback Olympos, where there is the option to explore the nearby ancient ruins or to scale the rocky slopes of mighty Mt Olympos to see the Chimaera, a cluster of spontaneous flames that blaze from crevices in the mountain.
