This afternoon to evening boat trip includes visiting mesmerizing parts of Dalyan Delta, swimming in volcanic Candir Lake, indulging sunset BBQ dinner at Little Dalyan – Iztuzu beach, star gazing and swimming under the stars at Koycegiz Lake and depending on the mood of the group maybe visiting even more secret spots into late night. One of the highlights of this evening are the amazing stars that can be seen so beautifully clearly whilst lying on the top deck of our boat, drink in hand, from the middle of Koycegiz Lake.
Regarding music, on. both of our boats we have a high quality (we don’t mean loud, we mean high quality) sound system. However we listen to our guests. If no music preferred, then no music. If top deck, front deck or back lounge wants music but rest doesn’t, no problem. We have internet so we can play anything you wish, or we can have something soft on the background or later at night we can party in class. It’s totally up to our guests. We will always do what our guests prefer and not what the crew or captain like. Our guests decide regarding the music as well as other subjects that would effect the comfort and enjoyment of them. We just listen and make them happen.
Having met at our office at 15.45pm we will walk the short distance to our fabulous boat in the harbour, boarding at 16.00pm once all our guests have arrived. You will be greeted on board with a welcome drink of tea, coffee, water, fresh lemonade or juices, as well as light snacks to enjoy as we cruise through the scenic Dalyan Delta passing the famous Rock Tombs and hopefully catching 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 on the sunbeds at the front and on the top deck. Prepare for something amazing.
Candir 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 enjoying your peaceful and joyful moment.
Little Dalyan – Sunset
We will then re-board the boat and head towards Itzuzu Beach. Our next stop will be The Little Dalyan. This area has 2 little dalyans, at right middle of Iztuzu Beach, one side is fresh waters of the delta, other side is the where Aegean and Mediterranean seas meet with its azur blue colours. Here you can disembark and take a leisurely stroll towards the sea, enjoy the fresh water, catch blue crabs which is really great fun (they are not harmed and released) or simply top up your drink and relax on the boat. To watch the sun set over the sea and mountains will be an amazing experience and fantastic photography opportunity. The colours of the sky are amazing, deep red, orange through to dark purple. Be sure to bring your camera.
We will have our famous open buffet BBQ dinner right at perfect time. As you are getting hungry from swimming, walking and indulging the amazing nature you are surrounded by, we will have been preparing your succulent evening meal. Options ranging from juicy king prawns, tender lamb kebbabs, freshly caught fish, marinated chicken and home made lightly spiced meatballs will be available for you – please note your choice of mains must be stated at the time of booking. Complimented by a freshly home cooked delicious range of pasta, rices, salads, mezzes and breads as well as traditional dressings and oils, you will experience the catering and hospitality of any 5 star restaurant placed in the most beautiful surroundings you can imagine. Vegetarian and vegan options as well as other special diets or allergies are all available if pre-ordered at the time of booking.

Koycegiz Lake & Star Gazing
There may be many lakes in Turkey, and we can honestly say we’ve visited plenty already, but Lake Köyceğiz is special. A different kind of special with mountains as backdrop, with its islands and Greek monasteries in it. In summer the water temperature is so high, swimming at night feels like taking a leisurely bath. We sail away from Dalyan town lights to enjoy the beautiful night sky, so you can immerse yourself in the water or on the boat.
The noon to moon boat trip combines the wonders that Dalyan has to offer and more. A wonderful evening adventure for all the family. We will return to Dalyan at around 11 PM.
TIP: If you enjoy snorkelling amongst the amazing sea-life seeing the wonders of the deep, you will love our Semizce Snorkelling trip!
