New and improved for 2019, who says you can’t make something great even better! This afternoon to evening boat trip includes swimming, luxury sunset BBQ dinner at Iztuzu beach, swimming in Candir Lake and Volkan’s secret candlelit hot springs. 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
Evening Boat Trip
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 for you to use so 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.
We will then re-board the boat and head to Itzuzu Beach. Our next stop will be the beach where we you can disembark and take a leisurely stroll towards the sea or simply top up your drink and relax on the boat. We will moor our boat in an excellent spot for on board crab fishing also which is really great fun! The sunsets are beautiful and it is an amazing experience to watch the sun set over the sea and mountains. The colours of the sky are amazing, deep red, orange through to dark purple. Be sure to bring your camera.
Once the sun has fully set, the moon will rise over the opposite side of Sulungar Lake. As you are watching in awe at the sights around you the captain will have been preparing your succulent evening meal. Options ranging from juicy king prawns, tender steaks, 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 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 are all available if pre-ordered at the time of booking and all dietary requirements can also be catered for.
Our fully stocked bar full of ice cold beers, wines, spirits and non alcoholic beverages will be available for the duration of the trip so treat yourself – you’re on holiday!
After dinner we will set off back along The Dalyan Delta and head towards Koycegiz Lake, where you can swim in the warm moonlit waters, under the stars.
Volkan’s Secret Mud Baths
Our final destination is Volkan’s Hot Springs. This is a little unknown natural spring near to Dalyan. Lying in the warm waters surrounded by candlelight is magical, an experience not to be missed. Many skin conditions and health ailments are believed to be cured by the therapeutic sulphur. We would advise you to bring water shoes with you for this part of the tour if possible.
We will then cruise back to the harbour, where you will be dropped off to enjoy the rest of the evening as you choose.
The noon to moon boat trip combines the wonders that Dalyan has to offer and more. A wonderful evening adventure for all the family.
