Blue Cruises are one of the most popular things to do here in Turkey. When people talk about the blue cruises people immediately think about beautiful bays of the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas where green pine trees mingled with turquoise water. And of course, they think about being on one of the gulets as well.

Gulets are traditional Turkish wooden boats with sails. They were initially built for transporting goods from one point to another along the sea line by the locals. But once tourism exploded in the 1980s, they transformed these boats into comfortable tourist boats for the blue cruise tours. The crew is mainly 3 to 4 people, including one cook who will be cooking for you during your cruise.

Beautiful Bays of Turkey

Our suggested tour starts from Fethiye. If you are arriving in Fethiye on Day 1, we will arrange your transfer from the airport. Or, if you like to come early and stay in Fethiye for few days, we can arrange a hotel and vehicle with a driver for you.

Once you start your cruise from Fethiye, the first stop will be at one of the islands nearby so you can start enjoying the water. You will spend the first night at Cleopatra Beach.

The next day you will have a side trip to Dalyan, ancient Kaunos. Here you will cruise along the Dalyan River and see the best Lycian Rock-cut Tombs of Turkey. Today you will do mud baht by the river as well. The mud baths in Dalyan are touted to have medicinal benefits for your skin due to the mud’s nutrient-rich nature. Then you will head back to your Gulet.

Blue Cruise: Amazing Blue Voyage

You will continue cruising towards Bodrum by doing some swimming stops and spending your nights at the beautiful bays of the Aegean Sea. Like Dalyan, you will have the chance to visit another ancient city called Cnidus. The history of the city goes back to the 4th century BC. You can walk in between the ruins and listen to the stories of Eudoxus of Cnidus, a student of Archytas and Plato.

You will also give some breaks in some cities during the cruise. One of your stops will be the marina of Marmaris. Here you can wander in between the shops, try some local dishes at the restaurants, or enjoying watching around by sitting at a café while drinking Turkish coffee. Another city that you will stop is Datca which is a gourmet town of Marmaris Peninsula.

At the end of the tour, you will also spend almost one day in Bodrum. Bodrum is one of the top destinations for local and foreign celebrities, Turkish people, and foreigners. You can find some high-end shops and local shops with genuine fake products, good local restaurants serving homemade dishes, and cafes with beautiful views. You can also visit a late medieval castle built by Knights of St John. The castle has the only underwater archeology museum in the world.

Best holiday memories ever

Bodrum will be the last place on tour. After breakfast on Day 8, you will disembark from the boat. We will transfer you to the airport, but we will arrange a hotel for you for couple more days in Bodrum if you like to stay.

Blue Cruise is a must in Turkey, and you will leave the tour with the best holiday memories ever.

If you have more than one week, we can combine the Blue Cruise tour wilt a land tour covering Istanbul, Cappadocia, Pamukkale, and Ephesus.
