Our Noon to Moon is an evening boat trip, an adventure not to be missed. This trip includes swimming, 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 seen from the middle of Koycegiz Lake.

Evening Boat Trip

We meet at our office at 16.00pm and walk to the boat in the harbour. You will be greeted on board with a welcome drink. We will then 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.

Candir Lake

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. We will have great fun trying to find the hot spots in the water!

Once back on board the boat we will then head out to sea and anchor up at Hole Island for another swim before the sun begins to set. 

Iztuzu Sunset

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. 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. The Captain’s mother will have prepared traditional Turkish mezes, along with chicken, meatballs and salads cooked on the BBQ.

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 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 all essentials that Dalyan has to offer in one trip. A fantastic night out.

TIP: If you enjoy snorkelling amongst the amazing sealife seeing the wonders of the deep, you will love our Semizce Snorkelling trip!

Please note: We have a full range of snorkelling equipment on board available to hire. The full hire cost will be reimbursed at the end of the trip upon safe return of the equipment.

On 31st August we went on a noon to (full) moon Dalyan boat trip – we swam in the sea and volcanic lake (Ala Gol), dropped anchor just off turtle beach (Iztuzu Beach) which was great fun. We swam, looking up at the moon and stars in Koycegiz Lake and finished off the evening sitting amidst sparkling candlelight in a natural hot spring. The boat was well equipped and the food and hospitality were excellent.

We had read about Volkan’s Adventures via Trip Advisor with lots of great reviews and decided we had to find this guy.

We managed to find the office on our first day in Dalyan and met wonderful Volkan, a friendly guy who, with patience, explained about the trips on offer. We booked three trips with him. Would have gone on more but sadly we had time constraints. Volkan we could write about each trip but you describe them all perfectly and we don’t feel we could do the reviews the same justice! Well apart from attending a Turkish wedding on the Noon to Moon trip and being made so welcome by the bride and grooms uncle! Very special!

Volkan’s trips are different as in they are off the beaten track and consequently so very different and enjoyable. The quality of meals served on the trips we attended were fantastic. Volkan and his crew including Beth and Lydia, lovely Muhammed “Buba” and the boat men and drivers are so accommodating, helpful and kind. We are going back to Dalyan in June 2016 and our first stop will be to say hello to Volkan and book more trips. Can’t wait! Until next year our friend

A really different trip suitable for all. Great guide and crew who really know how to get everyone involved. We met so many lovely people on this trip of all ages and from all over the world. A very memorable trip. From swimming in the river to crab fishing on the beach to the unexpected walk through the woods in pitch black to find a secret candle lit hot spring. Smiling as I type from the memory. We also did other trips with Volkan Adventures and would really recommend. Very reliable and everything as described.

Well, we enjoy every trip we do with Volkan, but this particular one was just magical, from dancing round the boat with Volkan’s lovely mum, to swimming in the lake with it’s incredible hot springs, crab fishing by the beach at sunset and then cruising back up the river to pick our way across the far bank to be confronted by the sight of a warm sulphur pool full of twinkling nightlights and the sound of frogs echoing all around us ( Don’t worry – they’re not in the pool)! Volkan loves to provide lovely surprises for his friends (guests) and this was just an amazing thing to do. Can’t recommend his trips enough if you’re looking for something just that bit different and certainly special in the company of really nice people. ( The food and hospitality provided by Mehmut and his wife and Mum on the boat was perfect too) .

Noon to Moon Cruise – where to start?

I have been on many trips in Turkey but i have to say this is my favourite. Met at Volkan’s to board the boat, great group lots of banter. We sailed slowly down the river way, stopping at the fantastic Candi Lake where the hot springs bubble up from the sea bed, out to Hole Island, barbeque at the beach, back up the river to the lake.- HERE WAS THE HIGHLIGHT-the stars!!! ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE – clear skies and you could see the constellations. Lie back and just enjoy the beauty. Swim in the lake at midnight.
Then back down the lake and river to Volkans secret sulpher spring.
Wander over some scrub land to the most amazing sulpher spring – slide in the warm water (ignore the rotton egg smell) and it really does help aches and pains!!
Ps THE FROGS WILL LAUGH AT YOU – AND NO THEY ARE NOT IN THE SPRING
Another 10 out of 10 VOLKAN
