At Volkans Adventures if you’re a guest on one of our Dalyan Boat Tours you can be assured not only of an enchanting and comfortable experience, but also a safe and secure one.

New for this year we have our own exclusive boats with 2 local and very experienced Captains who live and breathe the sea, they are both charismatic characters in their own right and who will ensure you have the best possible experience whilst on board.

Sari Zeybek boat is captained by Savaş, this boat was specially constructed by Savaş himself. He owns his own boatyard, Güven Yachting, right by the river opposite Dalyan Resort, which is also where his home is. Savaş is a local man and has spent his whole life sailing the river and sea, so his experience is second to none and you could not be in safer hands. Savaş also part owned a scuba diving school (Dalyan Dive Center) and has 16 years’ experience in diving. He also is a very experienced fisherman and his knowledge of the sea cannot be rivalled anywhere in Dalyan. All this knowledge about what goes on above and below sea level puts us in such a great position to give you the best ever adventure at sea. Savaş is very well travelled and speaks English and with his endearing character you will undoubtably find a newfound friend.

Sari Zeybek is a 14 metre long boat which is one of the longest in Dalyan and 4m wide which allows for plenty of room on board. The boat was originally a diving boat but is going through a full renovation this year and will be all sparkling and new ready for the 2022 season. This boat and its captain Savaş are one of only a handful of boats in Dalyan that has a special open sea licence which means he can take the boat anywhere on the open sea including international waters. It also means that if necessary he is licenced to take 16 passengers out to sea rather than 12 like most boats in Dalyan.

The boat has a full security radio system, full insurance for all guests, TPDK alcohol and ministry of tourism food serving licence. The boat has 220 volt electric supply complete with wifi, there is also a top of the range espresso coffee machine and a full kitchen with oven, so you can be assured of experiencing the very best of the captain`s seafood which will rival the very best fish restaurants and suit any connoisseurs.

Zeko 1 is captained by Captain Zeko, he is a local man who has spent majority of his life around the delta. He previously captained a sea yacht so also has his sea legs gaining years of experience out at sea with many multi-cultural guests . Zeko is a larger than life character, a big guy with a fascinating and captivating character. He is well travelled and has a story or two to tell and speaks excellent English. His knowledge of local life on the river and lake will challenge any other Captain in Dalyan. He literally lives and breathes life on the water, you could not be in better hands than spending a day with Zeko talking about life around the Delta, wildlife, culture, lifestyles, ecology, or you could even be talking about the economy and anything else that becomes a topic that day all whilst enjoying the local area whilst relaxing on his boat.

Zeko 1 is a 13m tall boat and is 4 metre wide so you will have plenty of room to relax. The boat is also licensed to go out to sea, it has a TPDK alcohol and ministry of tourism food license, it’s also fully insured for all guests, and has a full radio and security system. The boat is also in an enviable position of having wifi and is designed for our guests’ comfort. Spending the day with Zeko and his boat with be a first class experience and you will leave with a newfound friend.

If you are booking now via website but have more than 6 people in your party, please just pay and reserve your boat for 6 people now so your date doesn’t get booked up. You can email us at info@volkansadventures.com or just put a note on reservation form during your reservation and we can deal with the surcharge separately even on the day of the tour.

I am pretty snobby, and I wasn’t expecting much when our group holiday decided to go on a boat trip. I usually find boat trips uncomfortable, a bit dirty and wet and tend not to enjoy them at all.

However, I was so shocked when we saw the boat (in fact, the whole group was shocked!). The boat was modern, sparkling clean, really comfortable and beautiful with soft wooden flooring and comfortable cushions on the benches – by FAR the nicest boat that we saw when walking past them all. It was also really spacious, we all had room to lounge around or lie down and there was enough sun and also enough shade for everyone in the group if we all wanted to be in the sun at the same time/all wanted to be in the shade at the same time (we were a group of 8 people).

Having been so surprised at the amazing quality of the boat, we did not expect much more. However, the service that the team provided for us was next to none – we were offered water, teas, coffees, they even had nice cold beers we could purchase on board. We were able to play our music and enjoy our time.

Every moment, the team were making the experience more and more special, taking us to see stunning coastal ruins, beaches, and taking us to a volcanic lake to swim (which was very cool and I would seriously recommend doing it!). The attention to detail was incredible, they had thought of everything – for example, when we were all floating in the volcanic lake the team gave us all noodle floats and passed us beers while we were in the water. We were relaxed 100% of the time and the entire day was incredibly special. To top it all off, we got to watch the sun set as we were heading home.

It was such an incredible experience that we ended up doing another boat trip the next day (booking it on the spot as we were finishing our trip). We just had the best boating experience we have ever had and I could not recommend it more

From the moment we booked with Volkan Adventures the team ensured that our experience was made memorable, they contacted us well in advance whilst we was still in the UK of any specific requirements we may need and our meals were exactly what we wanted, even though we was in a large group, every person was catered for no matter of age and believe me, my family has some fussy eaters!! The meals and snacks provided were delicious and there was plenty of food for everyone on-board to have more than enough.

Volkan and the team made us feel welcome once again, as this was not our first trip with them. The crew were very friendly and accommodating. The locations we we stopped at to swim were stunning…particularly as the crew found secluded calm locations for us to enjoy the surrounding.

The crew even made extra stops and took us to the Mud Baths, which was an experience in itself.

The day actually did overrun which you can imagine, but Volkan, his crew and guides do go above and beyond!!

So overall 10/10 and can highly recommend to anybody.

Thank Volkan!! Stay safe everyone and see you in 2021!!

Our second adventure with Volkan’s and our first private trip. Excellent experience, crew and staff. Great to deal with from initial contact to end of trip and beyond.

Made it great for the kids, seeing turtles, the welcome aboard gifts and their all time favorite activity, CRAB FISHING. They are still talking about!

February 15, 2022

Still the best trip off everything we have done with family in 15 years coming to Dalyan. Keep up the good work Volkan. Hope to see you soon again x

What a fantastic day from start to finish. They went out their way to find out where our villa was so we could be picked up. Coffee tea and pastries was waiting for us on board. Julie was a very good host and explained what was happening throughout the day. A very interesting and informative trip with lots of sunbathing and swimming had by us all. The lunch was absolutely delicious and our vegan friend was well catered for. The whole experience was magical. Thank you Julie and Steve x
