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 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.
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.
