We will meet at our office at 09.45 and take a short walk to our comfortable boat. Because we only take small groups there will be plenty of space on-board on this spectacular Dalyan snorkelling boat trip.

After settling on board with our welcome teas and coffees we will travel down the river through the Dalyan Delta. Sit back and watch the scenery glide past the Dalyan promenade, the ancient Rock Tombs and into the reed beds. Keep your eyes peeled for Egrets, Marsh Harriers and Loggerhead Turtles.

Once we leave the river we will follow the rugged coastline. Our first stop will be at the magnificent caves, where we will spend an hour swimming in the crystal waters, through the caves, exploring and adventuring before sailing for a further half an hour to our lunch stop at the beautiful Semizce Bay. We will moor close to the beach so even non-swimmers can enjoy the shallow warm waters. You will be able to swim, snorkel, wade onto the beach or play frisbee with your fellow guests while our captain prepares the BBQ lunch.

Chicken, meatballs will be freshly cooked on the onboard bbq with fish and vegetarian or vegan options available if requested at the time of booking. All dietary requirements can be catered for. There will also be salads, breads and a wide variety of home cooked traditional mezzes. All the food will be freshly made and there will be plenty to go around. Cold alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks will be available from the bar.

After lunch we will continue to visit the furthest and most stunning bays that are simply perfect for the most amazing snorkeling experiences. If you are lucky you will see and swim with a Loggerhead Turtle.

Once everyone is back on-board we will begin our journey back towards Dalyan. Everyone can enjoy relaxing in the afternoon sun, chatting to new friends or snoozing on a comfortable sunbed. Homemade snacks and fruit will be available to nibble on.

Heading back into the river we will travel along the reed beds before reaching the harbour at 17.00, tired, relaxed and full of summer memories.

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.

This was my first snorkelling experience and I really enjoyed it. I am not a particularly strong swimmer but the guide was happy to stay along side me the whole time to make sure I felt safe. Also being a vegetarian there were plenty of options available for me to eat provided. I would happily have paid a higher price for this trip as it was a great experience.

Volkan Bey’in içten ve samimi davranışlarından o kadar etkilendik ki, iki gün içinde Dalyan’dan ayrılacağımız için yaptıkları ilk tura katıldık. Saygılı, içten ve yardımsever tavırlarının yanında yemeklerin güzelliği de bize bonus gibi geldi. Ağustos ayında diğer macerlarda görüşmek üzere. 🙂

My daughter and I enjoyed this gorgeous boat trip today and were blown away by the natural beauty surrounding us at each swim stop . It really was like being in paradise and to top it off the crew were fantastic / always at hand but not intrusive . The barbecue lunch was typically amazing and there were a few new dishes to try . Wonderful trip – I’m exhausted from feeling so chilled all day long !!

Fantastic boat with not too many people on so it wasn’t overcrowded. The captain always chose to stop in the less populated stops which I preferred. The whole crew were amazing, kind,and helpful which also created a wonderful atmosphere.
The food was incredible too, my boyfriend had multiple servings after everyone had topped their plates because it was so delicious! 100% recommend, don’t hesitate to book if you’re considering a tour.
