Volkan’s Adventures 12 Islands Sailing trip is the chance to discover the beautiful Turquoise Coastline. We travel further than the usual 12 Islands so you will experience secret coves and bays, secluded swimming areas. A peaceful and relaxing day on our spacious boat.

To begin your 12 Islands Sailing trip you will be picked up from your hotel/villa  between 09.00 – 09.30 a.m. We depart from Dalyan and drive to the beautiful marina at Gocek, where we will board the sailing boat and sail out to explore the bays and coves surrounding Gocek and the 12 Islands.

12 Islands Sailing

You will be given a welcome drink once everyone is on board. With a maximum of 15 customers the boat has plenty of room. There is a total of 24 sunbeds with sunny or shaded spots for everyone. The back of the boat also has a large dining area with 4 comfortable tables. There is a top deck area with additional room. Below deck there are two toilets and changing rooms. 

The scenery around Gocek is fantastic, towering mountains and forest covered hills. Perfect for budding photographers. Everywhere you look is another picture perfect scene.

Throughout the day we will stop at many of the stunning bays. We are guaranteed a quiet and relaxing day because we visit places that are not in the standard tour boat zone. During each stop you will have the opportunity to swim and snorkel in the crystal clear waters, or just sit back and enjoy the natural beauty of the surroundings.


Lunch is served on the boat, and consists of a variety of freshly prepared, delicious Turkish mezes with chicken and kofte (meatballs). A vegetarian option will be available. Fish will also be available on request.

After a full day of swimming, relaxing in the sun and eating we will make our way back to Gocek Marina. If the weather is favourable we will put up the sails and sail back. This is an incredible experience. Sailing is so peaceful and calming. The weather will dictate us. Unfortunately, no wind, no sails!

This is one of the best ways to while away a day at sea. You will return tired, happy and completely relaxed

We will arrive back in Dalyan at approximately 18.00 p.m

Volkan went out of his way to accommodate my friends and I when the season hadn’t even started! He is a delight to work with and is very hospitable. We did the Beyond the 12 Islands tour and it was everything we could want and more. Beautiful scenery, relaxing/tanning on the boat, good food, and plenty of swim stops. I could not recommend taking a tour with Volkan’s Adventures more!

Beyond the 12 Islands
Another fantastic day with Volkan and his team.Picked up at our apartment at 9.30pm for the 40 minute drive to the Marina at Gocek ( a very,very upmarket area) where we went on board the boat, there were plenty of sunbeds and shaded areas for the group of 12.
This was a great lazy day, with one stop at the most incredible bay, here there were hot springs bubbling up from the sea bed. There were other swimming stops, interspaced with lounging in the sun sipping either water, fruit juice or something a bit stronger!
Volkan explained all about the islands we were passing, making it an informative day as well as a relaxing one.
Lunch was prepared by “mama”, who provided a superb spread of chicken, meatballs and a great variety of Turkish Mezes.
On the trip back in to Gocek the engine was cut and the sail hoisted, the most peaceful time on the water you can imagine.
After a full day of swimming, sunbathing and good food I nearly fell asleep on the drive back to Dalyan.

Bir tatil ancak bu kadar güzel yaşanabilirdi. O güzelim doğayı, diğer turların uğramadığı yerlerde yaşatan Volkan Bey ve ekibine çok teşekkürler. Kocaman teknede, çok az insanla, koyların keyfini sürmenin verdiği özel hissi ancak bu tura katılarak anlayabilirsiniz. En güzel Restaurantlara taş çıkartacak zenginlikte menün keyfini de sonuna kadar yaşattık. Teşekkürler Volkan Bey.
