Kara Mehmet Bay is a new tour for 2023. Going beyond our usual routes, this tour makes for a spectacular day out at sea taking in the impressive coastline and sailing on the breathtaking blue sea to beautiful unspoiled turquoise blue bays.

Your day will begin at our office at 09.45 from where we will take a short walk to our exceptional quality boat. Because we only take small groups, there will be plenty of space onboard your spectacular 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 on Kara Mehmet Bay tour.

Once we leave the river, we will follow the rugged coastline out to sea. We will go past all the usual tourist boats moored in the popular locations and head to our first stop. Whilst we take in the beautiful scenery you can relax on board on one of our top deck sunbeds, maybe with a drink in your hand and feeling the breeze in your hair or chatting to your fellow guests.

Our first stop on your Kara Mehmet Bay tour will be at Deve Dosu, a rock formation beyond Semizce. We will moor here for a swim stop – a perfect location for snorkelling as the water is crystal clear. You can even have a go at paddle boarding (if you are energetic or brave enough) with our onboard paddle board!

Leaving there, we sail to our beautiful lunch stop at Kara Mehmet Bay. This is a naturally stunning area with a beach that doesn’t have a tourist in sight! 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 Alternatively, you can wade onto the beach or just sit back and 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.

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 lunch on your Kara Mehmet Bay tour, we will continue to visit the furthest and most stunning unknown bays that are charismatic and simply perfect for a relaxing day out at sea.

Once everyone is back onboard after our last stop, we will begin our journey back towards Dalyan. Everyone can enjoy relaxing in the afternoon sun (or shade!), maybe chatting to new friends or snoozing on a comfortable sunbed. Snacks and fruit will be available to nibble on.

Finally 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 Kara Mehmet Bay 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. 



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.
