Noon to Moon Dalyan – Itinerary:
Firstly having met at our office at 14.45pm we will walk the short distance to our fabulous boat in the harbour. We board at 15.00pm once all our guests have arrived. You will be greeted on board with a welcome drink, as well as light snacks to enjoy as we cruise through the scenic Dalyan Delta. We pass the famous Rock Tombs and hopefully catch a glimpse of one of the endangered and protected loggerhead turtles.
Relax and enjoy the journey on one of the many comfortable seats at the rear of the boat. Or alternatively on the sunbeds at the front and the top deck is available to use once the boat is moored, Prepare for something amazing.
Çandır Lake is our first stop. The volcanic lake is surrounded by nature and views of Caunos City ruins. Here you can swim in the warm waters and experience the soothing under currents. The deeper you dive the warmer the water. This is a truly revitalising experience in a body of water that we would encourage you to make the most of. We have on board flotation devices available to make this experience extra special or if you are not a confident swimmer. There’s no need for you to miss out on the feeling of languishing in a warm bath with nothing but the sounds of nature surrounding you. Your drinks may be served to you while you are in water on our floating bar enjoying the moment.
