Calling all sailors! For the very first time ever, Volkan’s Adventures invite you to join us on our brand new True Love for a Day Sailing adventure. Boasting a fierce reputation as a championship sailing boat, our vessel True Love has the capabilities to take you out on an all day sailing from Göcek experience you will never forget.
We begin our day by collecting you from your accommodation between 8.30am and 9am. After completing the thirty minute journey to Gocek harbour in our air conditioned mini bus we will board True Love and prepare to depart for 9.30am. Pick your perfect spot for relaxation and marvel at the picture perfect scenery that envelops you, be it on one of our comfortable sunbeds or nestled in the lounge area at the rear of the boat. Unwind and enjoy your complimentary welcome tea or coffee whilst we lift anchor and head out to embrace the day ahead.
With the wind in your hair and the sun on your face, relax and languish in the joy of the moment as we make our way out past the boundaries of the Gocek peninsula towards our first swim point Aga Limanı bay which we will reach at approximately 11.30am. This bay is a small cove with a picturesque beach surrounded with pine covered hills where you can connect to an ancient Lycian trekking route. The cosy and secluded area where no tour boats go will mark the first of many unique and spectacular sights we will show you. On arrival you will be presented with a light brunch of home made sandwiches, pastries, fruits and cakes aswell as a complimentary alcoholic or non alcoholic drink. Enjoy the delicacies as and when you wish, if it’s a particularly hot day the lure of a refreshing dip in the crystal clear waters may be overridingly tempting to indulge in first!
TIP: If you enjoy trekking and would like to witness some of the spectacular scenery along parts of the Lycian Way, our Trekking with Nomads trip will be perfect for you.
After an hour or so we will head even further out and here we will join the open seas which is where our boat will demonstrate it’s premier sailing capabilities for all to see. The full set of double sails will be released and the Captain will expertly guide us out across the waters where the full sailing experience will be second to none. Feel the energy of the waves beneath you as we sail freely, eventually coming to rest at the furthest re-entry point of the Gocek Peninsula; Sarıhüseyin Bay which is joined to the private island owned by one of the richest families in Turkey for centuries.
We will swim in the luxurious waters of this bay or simply relax with a drink and a book on board, before moving onward to our next destination. With the sails remaining up we will power through the waters, reaching the magnificent Bedri Rahmi bay at approximately 3.30pm. It is a little known fact that the name of this bay comes from a great Turkish writer and painter. Bedri Rahmi Eyuboglu and his friends discovered this beautiful Lycian coast and in 1973, during one of his voyages to the area, he painted a fish on a rock behind a fountain of the bay. After that the bay was renamed after him.
As the sun continues to shine and rest and relaxation are being truly embraced by all, the Captain will prepare a fabulous feast for you to enjoy. Allow us to spoil you with a mouth watering bbq mixed grill including lamb kebabs, meatballs and marinated chicken breasts, accompanied by a huge range of mezzes, salads and breads. Fish options will be available if requested at the time of booking and we can of course cater to all dietary requirements. Pick the complimentary alcoholic or non alcoholic beverage of your choice to accompany your meal to make this a truly unforgettable dining experience.
As it moves towards 5.30pm we will depart from Bedri Rahmi and make our way in the direction of our final point of call, the stunning Yassıcalar Bay. This bay is popular during the mornings with other boats so we can guarantee by visiting towards the latter part of the day with our arrival taking place at around 7pm that we will not be disturbed and can watch the breathtaking sunset in undisturbed peace. Canapes will be served as the sun goes down and you can toast the wonder of the day with your complimentary sunset beverage of choice. We will aim to return back to Gocek harbour for 9pm meaning arrival in Dalyan at approximately 9.30pm.
