Cruising the Turkish Coast From Fethiye

Trip Code: ZSTD

Why we love it

Spend an afternoon wandering around the photogenic ghost town on Gemiler Island, abandoned 100 years ago but still peaceful and pretty (and a little spooky)., Tuck into Turkey with traditional meals cooked on board, a local cooking class and a trip to a fish market where you can select your preferred catch for dinner., Blend discovery with relaxation – snorkel around the ruins of a sunken city in Kekova, sip a sunset drink in a Roman-era theatre and eat ice cream in an ancient city., See Lycian rock tombs carved into the side of cliffs, ranging from man-made caves to elaborately decorated crypts., Our compact but comfortable gulet boat can go places the big ships can’t reach, making it the perfect vessel for exploring the tiny islands and beaches of Turkey.

Is this trip right for me?

This Adventure Cruising tour takes place on a traditional Turkish gulet with up to 31 other people. The focus of this trip is exploring the wonders of Turkey and accessing small beaches and ports, not onboard activities. There are no lifts (elevators) on board the boat, so you will need to feel comfortable using steep stairs between decks. While the gulet is air-conditioned, we do not use it at night to limit noise from the generator. Wi-fi is available for a small charge.

Cabins are comfortable and compact, with ensuites. We advise packing a light, soft bag for easier storage in a small space.

Our ship uses engine power, with the occasional opportunity to hoist the sails, so all cabins will experience light engine noise when the ship is moving (and occasionally when we drop anchor). It’s worth packing earplugs if you’re a light sleeper.

Onshore activities and excursions will involve a bit of walking, sometimes in very warm weather (depending on the time of year). You’ll be visiting ancient sites and historical places, and at times you may have to cross cobbled streets and cover uneven ground.

Physical rating

 
2

No particular level of physical fitness is required for our adventure cruises, although you should have a good level of mobility and enjoy good health. We do ask that you read through the trip notes to ensure that this trip is right for you.
Please keep in mind that there are a number of shore excursions offered on your voyage. Some are walking tours and may involve a reasonable amount of walking over varied terrain. We recommend you bring a good pair of walking shoes or boots, carry a water bottle and don’t forget the sunscreen and hat. Depending on the excursion, disembarking the ship may be by zodiac, tender or onto a dock. Very occasionally, it will be a beach landing where you may need to wade through shallow water a short distance to reach the shore. This will be highlighted in the trip notes.
Snorkelling and fishing equipment is provided on board all of our vessels. To snorkel, we request that you consider your fitness level and your confidence in the water before taking part.
