Overview

Map

There are many cruises that depart Fethiye for 4 day or weeklong options. This blue cruise that departs Fethiye is a little different from the others as it is actually an all-inclusive package that incorporates your drinks. It is normally a drink package that offers your drinks throughout the day and only alcohol served in the evening. It is a weeklong cruise that returns back into Fethiye Harbour. The actual cruising experience is almost the same itinerary as many of the others that depart Fethiye. Along the way you will visit the major highlights of this coast including getting time in Kas, visiting beautiful Butterfly Valley, the ruins of St Nicholas Island, Simena Castle and of course cruising past the infamous Oludeniz beach. On this cruise you also have on offer some interesting land excursions if you are looking for a really good mix of being on the ocean plus the land. The land excursions offer you the chance to visit The Ancient City of Myra and St Nicholas Church down in Demre, as well as a tour to Xanthos Ancient City and Saklikent Gorge when you are in and around the Kas area. So this cruise really is a great option for those looking for that real mix of land and sea adventure. The weeklong gulet cruise down to Kekova is run on a standard Turkish gulet. All cabins are double and give you all private bathroom facilities. You are offered 3 meals a day with afternoon tea and drinks are obviously served with every meal. Your gulet will be equipped with snorkelling gear to share among all the passengers and there is normally an indoor salon as well as plenty of outdoor lounges and sunbeds
