If time is not on your side but you still want the chance to experience the beautiful Turquoise coastline of Turkey, then this 3 day blue cruise departing Kas is the perfect voyage for you. For 3 days and 2 nights you will cruise on a standard gule and get to visit some popular ancient cities and sights and have plenty of time to swim in crystal clear waters. This shorter cruise still has something for everyone.
You will meet your boat in Kas Harbour to enjoy lunch with your fellow passengers. Cruising out of Kas you will get to enjoy your first night on the boat in a beautiful bay with plenty of time for swimming and enjoying the pristine coastline. You will get to explore the Kekova region the next day as your captain will take you past the famous Sunken City of Kekova and give you time to go visit the ruins of Simena Castle for some sweeping views over the ocean you have just travelled along. Throughout your cruise you will get the chance to relax and swim in some stunning bays, whilst the whole time enjoying a plentiful of Turkish dishes and hospitality.
The gulet you will board is classed as a standard Turkish gulet. You will find that you are allocated a cabin that is normally twin share or double and all cabins have private bathroom facilities. You will enjoy the chance to sleep up on deck under the stars, which is some passenger’s highlight of their time on board.

KAS TO GOKKAYA BAY
Today, following breakfast you will cruise onto the Sunken City, destroyed by an earthquake in the 2nd century. This ancient town dates back 2000 years to the Lycian period. The gulet will cruise side by side the Sunken City. It is a protected World Heritage site therefore no swimming, diving or snorkelling is allowed in this area. Afterwards the gulet will moor close to the island of Kekova to explore the township and Simena Castle. From the top of the castle is a spectacular view of the entire Kekova region. For the night we set down the anchor in Gokkaya Bay, a well known turtle breeding area. Nearby, is the bar called Smugglers Inn for all boats and travellers to meet up in the area for a night of dancing under the stars. A free boat service is provided for transfers to the bar and runs regularly all night. If you prefer a quiet night on board, simply relax and chill out on the gulet. (B, L, D)
GOKKAYA BAY TO OLYMPOS
We start the day with a morning swim and our last delicious breakfast on board. After breakfast we will cruise past Pirates Cave on your way to Demre Harbour, also known as Andriake (Cayagzi) Harbour to arrive around 10:00am to disembark the boat. It is time to farewell your friendly crew and your new found cruise friends.
Please note lunch is not included on the last day. Our land crew will meet you in Demre Harbour by bus to transfer you onto Olympos and drop you off at your tree house of choice. Before driving to Olympos we will spend some time in Demre for shopping and to use cash facilities.
