ITINERARY

Day 1: TARZAN BAY

Our sailing adventure begins from the vibrant and picturesque town of Fethiye, where the locally crafted Turkish gulets embark for a week full of sun along the Turkish coastline. ​ 

 

We check into our gulet in the afternoon where you will meet your fellow passengers and Koda Sail crew before setting sail to our first stop, Tarzan Bay. 

 

Jump (or swing!) into the refreshing water for the first swim of the day and enjoy a delicious feast for dinner as we moor overnight in Tarzan bay.

Day 2: ST NICHOLAS ISLAND

In the morning we make our way to the truly stunning Butterfly Valley, which lies at the opening of two looming mountains. Breakfast is served and afterwards you can swim to the beach. For those wanting to venture a little further, there is a wonderful 45 minute walk that leads to a pretty waterfall. 

 

For lunch we cruise over to the beautiful Oludeniz Blue Lagoon for an afternoon dip. Thousands of paragliders jump from the mountain here, watching them soar above is an incredible site. If you are craving this truly heart-pumping experience for yourself, we can organise a jump from Mount Baba Dag for you! ​ 

 

Then it's on to the legendary St Nicholas Island. Here you can partake in many water sports, taste some fresh gozleme or take a mini hike up to the top of St Nicholas Island for a magical sunset. The afternoon is yours to enjoy!

Day 3: KAS

This morning we cruise into the crystal blue waters of Aquarium Bay for a swim and snorkel. The bay is all yours to explore until we call you back for lunch on board. 

 

In the afternoon, we head towards Kas Harbour where we'll dock for the evening. Here you can wander the old cobbled streets, explore the fantastic jewellery markets, or take an optional scuba diving excursion! ​ 

 

After dinner on board, it's time to check out the lively night life in Kaş. It could be a late night with lots of dancing. It's a great spot to watch the sun come up!

Day 4: KEKOVA

Before we set sail today, you have a chance to stock up on snacks, sunscreen, turkish towels, jewellery and handicrafts or maybe just another Turkish coffee! Today we voyage to Limangazi, yet another gorgeous bay. Stretch out on a sunbed with a book or learn to play backgammon and try to keep up with the locals!

Our next stop is the traditional fishing village of Ucagiz. This quaint old fishing port has managed to retain its charm, where you’ll want to spend an hour or two strolling through the village. Look out for the 2000-year-old Lycian tombs that are found scattered amongst the houses and can even be seen submerged in the sea. 

 

As the sun drops we will moor in Aperlai Bay to enjoy a special Spit Roasted Lamb and some Turkish delicacies. This is a once in a lifetime local experience.

Day 5: GOKKAYA BAY

After breakfast we cruise on to the famous Sunken City of Kekova, now a UNESCO Heritage site. Here we'll have our included guided sea kayaking tour to view the ruins through the crystal blue water. 

 

Across the bay we visit Simena Castle, with centuries of history and a glimpse into the country’s Ottoman past. Some of the best ice cream on the Mediterranean can be found here. After a day sightseeing the boat will dock in Gokkaya Bay offering you plenty of time to cool off with a swim and unwind. Caretta Turtles breed in this area, and if you are lucky you may get to swim with them. ​ 

 

Later in the evening, we head to Smugglers Island for a bit of fun. Here you can let your hair down and party like a pirate until the early hours!

Day 6: FIRNAZ BAY

After breakfast this morning we cruise towards Hidayet Bay, stopping at a few hidden bays along the way for more swimming and snorkelling. 

 

Later in the afternoon we pull up anchor and head towards Firnaz Bay, which will be tonight's stop. Here we'll dig into some local Turkish delicacies for our family feast dinner on board. Enjoy a chilled night on the deck under the stars. Magic!

Day 7: FETHIYE

This morning’s stunning destination is Gemiller Beach, where we will drop anchor for a morning of pure rest and relaxation. Surrounded by pines and olive trees this bay is nicely sheltered from the vibrant port of nearby Fethiye, but well enough catered for that you can make the most of the water-sports on offer. 

 

Today there is an optional excursion to the fascinating town of Kayakoy, a former Greek village that is now a deserted ghost town since being abandoned at the end of the First World War. In the late afternoon after a final swim stop, we make our way back to Fethiye harbour to spend the night. 

 

Tonight, we eat dinner on board then venture out and experience the vibrant nightlife Fethiye has to offer for our final night on tour. Whether its neon lights and dancing that you like or a quiet bar in a back street, Fethiye has something for everyone. We toast to an amazing week on the seas and all of the memories!

Enjoy one last breakfast as you fare-well your crew and fellow passengers, aka your new lifelong friends :)
