Your Semizce & Ekincik Boat Trip begins at our office bright and early at 09.45. We then take a short walk to our exceptional quality boat. Because we only take small groups, there will be plenty of space onboard during your spectacular Ekincik Boat Trip.
After settling on board with our welcome drink, 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 then on into the reed beds. Keep your eyes peeled for wild life in this unique ecosystem – you may see egrets, marsh harriers, king fishers, western rock nuthatches, short-toed snake eagles and many other bird species as well as Loggerhead Turtles.
Once we leave the river, we will follow the rugged coastline towards our first stop at the magnificent caves (* season dependent) where we will spend an hour swimming in the crystal waters and through the caves, exploring Ekincik Bays. Maybe you will feel adventurous enough to try our on board paddle board!
Leaving the caves, we sail for a further half an hour to our lunch stop at the beautiful Semizce Bay on Ekincik Boat Trip. We will moor close to the beach so even non-swimmers can enjoy the shallow warm waters too. You will be able to swim, snorkel or paddle board on your Semizce & Ekincik boat trip. Alternatively, you can wade onto the beach or chat with your fellow guests. You can even enjoy a tipple in the water on our floating bar, all whilst our captain prepares the BBQ lunch. We also have swimming aids on board for non swimmers.
On our Ekincik Boat Trip chicken Shish, & Kofte (meatballs) will be freshly cooked on the onboard bbq and vegetarian or vegan options are available too, if requested at the time of booking. All dietary requirements can be catered for. Besides the BBQ, 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 your delicious lunch, we will continue to visit the furthest and most stunning bays that are simply perfect for snorkeling experiences. If you are lucky, on Ekincik Boat Trip you may even see, and swim with, a Loggerhead Turtle!
Once everyone is back onboard, we will begin our journey back towards Dalyan. Everyone can enjoy relaxing in the afternoon sun, maybe chatting to new friends or snoozing on a comfortable sunbed. 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, tanned, relaxed and full of summer memories from our Semizce & Ekincik Boat Trip.
