Thanks to its clean blue sea and fascinating nature, the fishing town of Kaş on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast has drawn attention for decades. A popular place to set sail on a boat cruise, this 8-hour tour offers an adventure on board a traditional, 45-55-foot (14-17-meter) gulet.
Departing from the yacht harbor at 10:00, your first destination will be the small islands nearest to the Greek island of Castellorizo. This is one of the most important diving destinations in Turkey, and you’ll have time to fish, swim and snorkel in the crystal clear waters. Look for an Italian warship that sank during World War 2, as well as an array of colorful fish and marine life, including sea turtles and octopus.
Continue to Ufakdere Bay for another swim in the silky waters. A delicious meal, prepared on board the boat in a Mediterranean kitchen, will be waiting after you have cooled off or caught up on some reading on the shady deck.
Then, sail to Güvercin Island, also known as Pigeon Island, where you can visit the small sea museum, or look at a shark monument. Finally, sail on to Limanağzı Bay for a 45-minute swimming break, before tea, cake and fresh fruit is served as you cruise back to the harbor.
