Fethiye to Olympos Cruise
Twice a week (every Tue and Sat) from Apr to Oct 2020
 
Our gulet boats are traditionally-built, wooden Turkish motor-yachts which hold around 16 to 20 passengers. These cruises are easily the best way to see the Turkish coast – imagine waking every morning for breakfast and a swim in idyllic bays and cruising along the coast to new destinations 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 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 enjoy evenings on the boat with your shipmates and go to cafes, bars and venues in places like Kas. Sounds like the perfect trip? You bet it is, and with prices starting at £229 GBP per person for a 4-day cruise with full-board (breakfast, lunch and dinner) included, it is incredible value!
 
Our mixed-age cruises attract travellers aged 6 to 69! This means they tend to have a mixture of families, older guests, young professionals, couples and solos of all ages onboard. See the "Dates & Prices" tab for our mixed-age cruise departures. The full itinerary for West to East is below:

Day 1

Fethiye to St Nicholas Island

We check in at 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 either spend the night in Kas town to enjoy the nightlife there, or overnight in one of the secluded bays between Kas and Kekova, with option of transfer boat to Kas town.

Day 3

Kas to Gokkaya Bay

Today we sail past the sunken city. Once part of the original settlement that still makes up the island of Kekova, a devastating earthquake many centuries ago made this part of the town collapse into the sea. We will sail past for a closer look before anchoring on the opposite side to visit Kekova. Here you can wander the island, hike to the Lycian tombs, and climb to the hilltop to enter Simena Fortress for some panoramic views over the coastline you have just cruised.

In the evening we overnight in Gokkaya Bay or a bay nearby, sometimes with the option of visiting Ucagiz village.

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 Ucagiz 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.

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 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 does the boat depart from Fethiye?
A: Check-in is at 9am and we always aim for the boat to then depart around 10.30am.
Q: Can you recommend anywhere to stay in Fethiye for a night or two before the sail?
A: Absolutely! We can book you into a guesthouse next to the Marina - see full details here: Fethiye Guesthouse
Q: If I don't want to share my cabin, can I pay a single supplement?
A: Yes, you can pay a single supplement. Our single supplement is  60% extra in April, May, June, October and 100% extra in July, August, September. You must book your single cabin in advance.
Q: What food is included?
A: You will have 3 meals everyday which consists of breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea/coffee. All our meals served buffet style.
Q: What if I am vegetarian or have other special dietary requirements, how can you help me?
A: You should tell us about your special dietary requirements before your cruise starts and our onboard cook will do their best to cater for them. Meals on board are served buffet style so you can pick and choose what suits your diet most.
Q: Can I bring my own food and drink on board?
A: You can only bring your own snacks onboard such as peanuts, crisps, biscuits etc. But you cannot bring your own drinks including water.
Q:Can I pay for my bar tab by credit card?
A: Our gulets do not have card facilities onboard. All payments for your bar tab can be made only by cash locally on your last day before you check out of the boat.
Q: Do I have to have any insurance?
A: We strongly recommend taking out travel insurance before you go.
Q: Are there any power sockets on board?
A: Some boats have power sockets in cabins and some have them only in the salon area. You can use the power sockets when the engine or generator is on. 
Q: Are there towels provided on board?
A: No, you will not be provided with towels. You should definitely bring your own bath and beach towels.
