Olympos / Demre to Gokkaya Bay
Around 10am our ground crew will come and collect you from your accommodation in Olympos.
Our first sight for the day is the Sunken City, an ancient town that dates back 2000 years to the Lycian period and was destroyed by an earthquake in the 2nd century. We will cruise over this protected World Heritage site nice and slowly to enjoy the view, however as this is a protected sight no swimming, diving or snorkelling is allowed. Following this, we will anchor down near Kekova and the island of Kalekoy to visit Simena Castle. Guests can enjoywalking through the cobbled streets of the town or head into the castle to witness some amazing views of the Kekova region.
Tonight we anchor down in Gokkaya Bay, an area known to be a haven for turtles. Later in the evening a free shuttle service is provided to go party at the nearby bar, Smuggler’s Inn. Meet up with other travellers from other boats, for a night of dancing under the stars. If you don’t want to head to the bar, simply relax and chill out on the gulet. (L, D)

Today you will cruise onto Kas, which is a small fishing village with some of the best shopping in the area, especially unique jewelry pieces. You will be given time to explore the local shops, including lots of handmade jewelry, clothes stores and some local cafes for a great brew of coffee. For those interested in the optional activity of diving, you will be transferred out to the diving boat to go scuba diving in what is said to be the best place to dive in Southern Turkey. There is some pretty good spots to see marine life, rock coral and even a wreck. Be sure to look at booking this optional activity online before your cruise to receive an online discount.

Aquarium Bay to St Nicholas Island
This morning wake up to vivid blue sea and find yourself in Butterfly Valley. Wake yourself up with a morning swim, have breakfast and then take the optional hike up to the waterfall. Butterfly Valley is known to be the home to over 136 different types of butterflies and moths, in the summer months they can be difficult to spot though as they search for cooler climates deeper in the valley.
For lunch we will moor near the Blue Lagoon in Oludeniz. Much swimming is to be had here and most venture into the blue lagoon over the rocks. Oludeniz Beach and the blue lagoon are one of the most photographers beaches in the world due to the thousands that paraglide here each year. Paragliding is an optional activity at this stop.
