Q: What is the difference between the 18-39s and Mixed-age cruises?
A: As the name suggests, the 18-39s cruise is aimed at travellers in that age bracket. The 18-39s cruises are not really "party cruises" as they attract travellers looking for a more balanced trip with lots of swim-stops, sightseeing and exploring during the day, with fun and socialising in the evenings and the party in some coastal bars on at least one night during the cruise. The mixed-age cruises can have travellers on board aged between 6 and 69 and tends to attract families, slightly older travellers over 39, young professionals, couples and solos of all ages.
Q: What are the differences between a classic and a classic plus boat?
A: The main differences are that the classic plus boat is a slightly larger and more spacious boat and this category of boat also includes air-conditioning at certain timings during the day and evening. This can slightly vary on the timings but we work on 6/7 hours per day. Usually is it 8pm - midnight to cool the cabins and then 2-3 hours in the afternoon. Our classic boat does not include air-conditioning.
Q: What time is pick-up in Olympos?
A: The meeting point in Olympos is BAYRAMS TREEHOUSES (from the reception/bar area). We will collect you from there at 9.45am. If you wish to be collected from another treehouse in Olympos (if you are not staying at Bayrams), please go to Bayrams Treehouses reception and let them know the name of your treehouse the day/night before. You will then be collected from that treehouse at 10am.
Q: Do you do pick-ups from Cirali?
A: No, as Cirali is too far away from Olympos for convenient pick-ups. If you are staying in Cirali, please take a taxi (around 5-10 Euros) from there at about 9.15am, to get you to Bayrams Treehouses before 9.45am to meet our Olympos-Demre transfer.
Q: What time is pick-up from Demre Bus Station?
A: If you need to be picked up from Demre Bus Station instead of Olympos then collection is at 12pm (noon). You then have about 45 mins in Demre town to purchase any last-minute items you may need (towels, snorkels, sun-cream etc).
Q: What time does the boat depart from Demre on day 1?
A: Transfer from Demre harbour to the boat is at around 1.30pm and the boat sets off around 2pm.
Q: What time does the boat dock in Fethiye on day 4?
A: The arrival time into Fethiye can vary but is always after lunch, usually around 1.30pm to 2pm.
Q: Can you recommend anywhere to stay in Fethiye for a night or two after the sail?
A: Absolutely! We can book you into a guesthouse next to the Marina - see full details here: Fethiye Guesthouse
