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.

  • We always endeavour to stick to our planned itinerary but occasionally we may alter the route and stops due to overcrowding, weather, or any other factor. We are guided by our Captain as our guests safety & welfare our priority.
  • Please state your food choice at the time of booking, from Chicken Shish, Kofte or vegetarian/vegan. 
  • Watersports are available at Semizce Bay at an extra cost. If you wish to have a go, then please inform us and we will call them to the boat.

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.

We have our own exclusive boats with 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 has gone through a full renovation last year.  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.

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.
