Fethiye - Kekova - Fethiye
Today you will check into your gulet in the afternoon around 15:30pm. Once you are onboard you will be given information and settled into your cabins. Tonight you will be staying in Fethiye Harbour so you have the afternoon and evening to explore town. You may like to visit the Lycian tombs high in the cliff faces for sunset or enjoy the shopping in the old town. Dinner will be served on board and then you may like to go back into town to explore the night life of Fethiye or enjoy a quiet drink on the boat.
Fethiye to St Nicholas Island
After breakfast is served you will then set off out of Fethiye Harbour heading for Butterfly Valley. This will be your first chance for a swim in the beautiful blue waters of the Mediterranean. There will be time for you to go on shore to the beach and hike into the valley if you would like to. Afterwards you will head onto Oludeniz Beach, which is the most photographed beach in the world. You will cruise past to anchor down on the back side of the Blue Lagoon. Here you can climb over the rocks and get a free look into the lagoon. In the afternoon you will cruise onto St Nicholas Island, where we will spend the night. So it will give you all plenty of time to go explore the ruins of a Byzantine settlement, join in the many water sports on offer or just enjoy a swim in the bay. Do be sure to at least go onto the island as it is one of the best sunsets along the way.
St Nicholas Island to Kas
This morning your crew will set off early whilst you can enjoy sleeping in. You will eventually reach Yesilkoy, where you will stop for breakfast and a swim in this quiet bay surrounded by olive groves. You will then cruise onto Kas, a small harbour town with a bohemian atmosphere. Beautiful cobble stone streets lined with old ottoman homes, be sure to look around for the renowned jewelry stores or have a drink at one of the trendy bars. The night will be spent in Kas Harbour, so after dinner on board you may like to head back to one of the bars for a night cap or two.
Kas to Ucagiz Village
This morning you will head to Simena, where you are given the chance to go onshore to climb up to the castle grounds for a spectacular view of the ancient city and the gorgeous coastline you have travelled. The island and bay are scattered in ancient Lycian sarcophagus with some even sitting in the water. You will have time to explore before you will cruise off to a secluded bay nearby Ucagiz Village. This is where you will spend the night, so you have plenty of time for afternoon swimming and drinks on board.
Ucagiz Village to Gokkaya Bay
After a lazy morning it will only be a short cruise to the ruins of the Sunken City. This was once part of the village you can see opposite, but was destroyed in an earthquake back in the 2nd century. As you cruise by you will see the ruins of the houses and the village all submerged in the waters. There will be plenty of swimming stops throughout the day before anchoring down at Gokkaya where you will spend the night. If you fancy a night out there is a night club called Smuggler's Inn in the middle of no where nearby. If you are interested in going to meet up with other neighbouring boats and dance the night away, speak with your crew. Or you can always choose to stay on board and have a quiet drink under the stars.
Gokkaya Bay to Kalkan
After breakfast you head to Aquarium Bay, which is famous for its crystal clear waters. Here there will be time for swimming break before you cruise off to Kalkan. You can either go exploring the old fishing village enjoying the many shops and cafes, bars and restaurants. Or you may like to join one of the optional trips we can help organise onto Patara Beach, or the ruins at Xanthos and Letoon. The evening will be spent in a secluded bay outside of Kalkan.
Kalkan to Tarzan or Samanlik Bay
This morning the crew will wake up early whilst you keep sleeping. You will eventually wake up in Camli Burun, a natural bay edged with pine-covered hills.
