Fethiye to Demre

If you are pushed for time then the shorter Blue Cruise for 3 days and 2 nights departing Fethiye is your best choice to still get to see the stunning Turquoise Coastline. Travelling on a standard gulet, you will cruise onto Demre and depart the boat after the third day so you will still be able to enjoy the best of the ancient sights and sights, swimming and snorkelling.

You leave Fethiye to cruise on to Butterfly Valley. Here you will be given the chance to take a hike in the valley or you may choose to just stay and enjoy the vivid blue ocean around you. It will then be time to cruise past Oludeniz, which is Europe’s most photographed beach, before you anchor on the backside of the Blue Lagoon. That evening you spend the night at St Nicholas Island, where you have time to go and explore the ruins before the sunset. The following few days you get to enjoy the fishing village of Kas and the ancient sites of the Kekova region. Before you depart the gulet you will get to visit the Sunken City of Kekova and visit the ruins of Simena Castle. Whilst on board you will be offered the chance to undertake some optional activities of paragliding and diving.

This amazing blue cruise is undertaken on a traditional Turkish gulet. The gulet will offer each twin share or couple their own private cabin whilst other solo travellers will share together. All cabins come with private bathroom and there is plenty of room to store your bags. The standard gulet will have lounge areas for you to chill out and fully relax. At the end of the third day you will depart from your amazing blue cruise in Demre. The 3 day Fethiye to Demre gullet cruise is slightly shorter version of Fethiye to Olympos blue cruise, perfect for those short on time. Because of the coastline, this is one of the most popular Gulet cruise in Turkey.

Fethiye to Demre Gulet Cruise Itinerary

The first day of your cruise you will meet at the Alaturka Fethiye office at 09:00 for check-in and given information, if you require directions our staff are able to aid. Following check-in, we will board the gulet for a short briefing. The gulet will then depart Fethiye harbour and cruise to the first stop, Butterfly Valley. Time for some swimming, lunch and an optional hike up to the waterfall. Butterfly Valley is known to be home to more than 136 different types of moths and butterflies, however, in the hotter days, they can be difficult to spot. The next stop is the most photographed beach in the world - Oludeniz. At Oludeniz, there is the option to go paragliding. This involves taking off from Babadag Mountain, 2000 metres high and fly over the Blue Lagoon and Oludeniz. This is the best spot in Europe and probably the world for paragliding and will offer you the most spectacular views! For those wanting to fly please consider pre-booking this activity either online for special online rates or you can book with our friendly office crew and also last minute with your captain. Tonight the gulet will anchor down at St Nicholas Island, where you will have time to walk up through the ruins covering the island and sit and enjoy the sunset. (L, D)

Today our guests will wake up just outside of Kalkan in the beautiful Aquarium Bay for a morning swim and breakfast. Afterwards we then cruise onto Kas, a small fishing village with a cafe culture home to great cafes, beer gardens and restaurants. It also has some of the best shopping in the area, especially unique jewelry. You will have plenty of time to explore these shops, cafes and even the town's ancient theatre. At this stop there is also the option to do scuba diving. It is the best place in southern Turkey to dive. For those without a license you can do an introduction dive or certified divers can view everything from caves or even a wreck. Be sure to look at booking this optional extra online before your cruise to receive an online discount. This can also be booked with the captain on board. Tonight is spent in a secluded bay between Kas and Kekova. (B, L, D)

Today, following breakfast we will cruise onto the Sunken City, an ancient town destroyed by an earthquake in the second century. This dates back 2000 years to the Lycian period. We will cruise parallel to this protected World Heritage site nice and slowly. There is, however, no swimming, diving or snorkelling allowed in this area as it isa protected sight. Afterwards the gulet will anchor down near Kekova to visit Simena Castle and the rest of the island. Walking to the top of Simena Castle provides a magical view over the bay.

In the afternoon you will be transferred to Demre Harbour where your cruise ends. An Alaturka ground crew member will then transfer you by car to Demre Bus Station where you can make your own way onto your next destination.
