We had a great time on our blue cruise from Fethiye-Olympos. The places we got to stop and swim were amazing, the captain and crew were friendly and the food was amazing. The cabins were comfy although mostly everyone slept on deck under the stars. We were a bit worried about drink prices on board but they were reasonable. Highlights for us were sunset at St Nicholas Island, the smugglers inn and the Simena Castle.
However a few things to note-it's called 4 day 3 night but really 2 full days, 1 half day and one morning where you just cruise for an hour, get off in Demdre and get a 2 hour bus to Olympos that just drops everyone in one spot. Hardly any butterflies in the butterfly valley in summer (we saw 1) and didn't get many turtles in the turtle bay on the last night. We did get them other places though so be prepared when you see them. Also try and view crew list/ages before you book, we had half turkish speaking middle aged, half english speaking mid 20s and a family with young children (who ate well over their share of food seemingly not realising the food is shared).
Overall would do it again because it's great fun, beautiful places and very relaxing.
4day sail Fethiye to Olympos.
This trip could not have been better; an absolutely magical experience.
What to expect:
A relaxing sail along the coast, with professional friendly crew and incredible Turkish food. You stop in bays and inlets for snorkeling and swimming, as well as going to small coastal towns to explore.
Cabins get hot but cool down overnight or you can sleep on mattresses on the deck.
Just be advised there is no tour guide on board. The crew are there to look after you but are not guides.
We went on a week-long sailing tour from Fethiye with Farout, which we booked through Top Deck in Australia. Farout were simply fantastic, and the cruise was the highlight of our trip! The boat was beautiful, and the service and food were excellent. In addition, Bec at Farout assisted us in booking a further week of travel through turkey, and everything was organised for us (busses, transfers, tours, accommodation) at a really great price. Cannot recommend Farout highly enough if you are planning a cruise or any other tours from Fethiye! Thanks!
