Itinerary

Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

Day 1 - Join trip Fethiye

Our trip starts at Fethiye Harbour. Here we board our gulet and meet the crew. Fethiye is a market town that can trace its history back to the ancient Lycian town of Telmessos built around the harbour in the 5th or 6th century B.C. Reminders of the town's past include Lycian rock tombs on the hillside and an Hellenistic theatre. We spend our first night in the harbour.

Accommodation: Overnight on Gulet(or similar)

Simple Boat
Meals Provided: Dinner
Day 2 - Riverboat to Caunus; gulet to Yassica Island

After a short transfer to the sleepy village of Dalyan we board our riverboat. We first head upriver to the therapeutic mudbaths of Ilica and then meander downstream, weaving through reed beds rich in bird life. We pass cliffs carved with dramatic Necropolis tombs before coming to the ruins of the ancient seaport of Caunus. Much of the site is overgrown, but the fine Hellenistic theatre is well preserved and the views from the fortified acropolis are breathtaking. Looking south to the Aegean 5 kms away it is hard to imagine that Caunus was once a thriving port, but fell into decline when the harbour silted up. Continuing by riverboat we reach Iztuzu Beach, a wide spit of white sand lapped on one side by the Aegean and on the other side by the fresh waters of the Koycegiz River. This is one of the few remaining nesting places of Caretta caretta, the loggerhead turtle. Development at Iztuzu has been banned and an overnight curfew is placed on the beach, as this is when the female turtles come ashore to lay their eggs. Having paused to swim we transfer back to Gocek and board our gulet. We enjoy lunch aboard whilst sailing south to our first overnight mooring at the tranquil cove at Yassica Island.

Accommodation: Overnight on Gulet(or similar)

Simple Boat
Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Day 3 - Sail to Gemiler Island via Tersane and Batik Hammam

After an optional walk on Yassica Island, we make the short crossing to Tersane Island. Formerly the site of a prosperous Greek village, Tersane is now deserted. Among the remains are a watchtower and some tombs, all of which are now ruined but well preserved. From here we continue to Batik Hammam where we will have the opportunity to swim in the beautiful clear waters. We finish our day heading towards our next night stop at Gemiler Island.

Accommodation: Overnight on Gulet(or similar)

Simple Boat
Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Day 4 - Cruise to Kalkan; optional visit to Xanthos and Saklikent Gorge

We make an early start to sail to Kalkan, an attractive village built into the steep seacliff. Kalkan is an ideal base from which to visit the ancient city of Xanthos as well as Saklikent Gorge which is a short drive away. Xanthos was the capital of ancient Lycia, captured by Brutus in 43BC, but only after the menfolk had killed all their women and children to save them from falling into Roman hands. Saklikent Gorge, which means Hidden Place, is situated high in the mountains above Fethiye and was created by icy cold water cutting through the mountains over thousands of years. A natural wonder, the resulting canyon is 300 metres deep and 18 km long. The walls are so high they cut out most of the sunlight and the fresh spring waters that flow through are freezing cold! A great refuge on a hot summer day.

Accommodation: Overnight on Gulet(or similar)

Simple Boat
Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Day 5 - Sail to Kekova

After sailing to one of the loveliest stretches of coastline from Kalkan eastwards towards the sheltered bay of Kekova, we then drop anchor and once again have the chance to venture onshore to discover the ancient heritage of the Lycian Coast.

Accommodation: Overnight on Gulet(or similar)

Simple Boat
Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Day 6 - Optional Sea-Kayaking; sail to Kas

This morning there is the chance to try out sea-kayaking in the calm, protected waters of the bay of Kekova. Here we find the so called Sunken City of Kekova which is partly submerged within the bay with its streets and buildings being visible in the crystal clear waters. Later we paddle to the picturesque whitewashed village of Simena, whose harbour is dotted with ancient sarcophagi (tombs) and whose houses cling to the hillside beneath a medieval castle. Hiking up to the castle, we find an ancient theatre that is carved out from the solid rock - a wonderful place to sit and soak up the beautiful surroundings and wonder about the layers of history that are all about. In the afternoon, we make our final gulet journey, sailing west to the pleasant little harbour town of Kas. This attractive port is one of the most beautiful of the Turkish Riviera, backed by steep cliffs covered with dense green forest. You'll have time to enjoy the atmosphere at one of the many lively cafes near the harbour.

Accommodation: Overnight on Gulet(or similar)

Simple Boat
Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Day 7 - Westward sail towards Fethiye

Today we cruise at a leisurely pace, returning westwards towards Fethiye. Stopping en route for swimming opportunities, we eventually moor up around an hour from Fethiye in a quiet bay.

Accommodation: Overnight on Gulet(or similar)

Simple Boat
Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Day 8 - Trip ends Fethiye

This morning we sail back to Fethiye where the trip ends. If your flight is departing later in the day then it will be possible to leave your baggage either on board the boat or at the boat office in Fethiye. Please speak to your Tour Leader or the boat captain to make the necessary arrangements.

Kale & Olympos - Visit St. Nicolas' Church and ancient Olympos, Kekova - Guided sea kayaking trip over the sunken city with the price based upon the number of people in the group. Prices from £35 pp rising to smaller groups where the sum can be up to £80pp

Clothing

The long Turkish summer can be hot, though much of the Mediterranean coastline is freshened by sea breezes. A warmer sweater or light fleece and long trousers are advisable for the evenings in early and late season. Dress on the gulet is informal.

Footwear

Footwear is generally not worn on the boat, which is recommended as you get much better grip with bare feet. Bring sandals for general wear and a pair of old or plastic shoes for walking on rocks and wet beach landings. A pair of trainers or a comfortable pair of walking shoes is required for walks and visiting ancient sites.

Luggage

20kg

Luggage: On tour

One main piece of baggage and a daysack for a few personal things. Space is limited in the gulet cabins so luggage should be kept to a minimum. A soft holdall is recommended rather than a hard suitcase.

Equipment

Useful equipment includes a water bottle, small torch, high factor suncream, insect repellent, sunglasses, and a snorkel and mask for keen swimmers. Whilst some towels are provided you may want to bring your own beach towel for outdoor use and swimming. Note: Qualified scuba divers wishing to dive should bring their diving certificate and log book.

Tipping

Explore leader
At your discretion you might also consider tipping your Explore Leader in appreciation of the efficiency and service you receive.
Local crew
Although entirely voluntary, tipping is a recognized part of life in this region of the world. Some local staff will look to members of the group for personal recognition of particular services provided. In order to make things easier for you, the Explore Leaders may organise a group's tips kitty and if this is the case, they will account for it throughout the trip. Accordingly, you should allow approx £15.00 per person for tipping.
Local fees
Tea and coffee will be provided on board the gulet at meal/tea times and water is provided at meal times also. You cannot bring your own drinks on board the gulet, but they can be purchased on the boat at the following approximate rates: Wine (70cl): £10.00 Water (small): £0.35 Beer (small): £2.00 Soft Drinks: £1.10 Raki: £2.65 Spirits: £2.65 It's not possible to pay by credit/debit card or travellers cheque on board. Cash machines also aren't easily found during this trip. Please also note that if you would like to offer tips for the Explore staff, it is probably best to bring this amount before you travel as cash machines are not easily found on this trip.

Accommodation notes

Booking a Single Room

All of our group tours are planned and operated on a twin-share basis, meaning that the standard cost is based either on individual travellers sharing accommodation with another group member of the same sex, or people who book together sharing accommodation. Please refer to the tour notes where the single room option availability is detailed on a night by night basis for this tour, and the price for the available nights is detailed on the dates & prices tab by departure date. For Self-Guided trips the Single Room supplement offers the option of a single room each and is charged per person. The Single Room supplement also applies to the third person in a party of three that will be accommodated in a single room.


Our traditional gulet is hand built in teak and pine, with a spacious and partly shaded foredeck and comfortable indoor and outdoor lounge areas. Meals are prepared on board by the boat chef and enjoyed in the shaded aft deck. There are four twin and four double cabins, all with an en suite toilethower. The cabins are cosy and can get warm in summer as there is no air-conditioning, so you may find it preferable to sleep above deck although port holes can usually be opened. There are plugs available in each cabin, so it is possible to charge cameras and phones. There is some snorkelling equipment available aboard the gullet. If you are a keen snorkeler, you may prefer to bring your own mask and snorkel with you. The gullet may moor in a quiet bay near the night stop to minimise disturbances in the evening, especially in large urban areas/ports.

Family swimming

There is a chance to swim every day from the gulet
