Day 03


Early departure for Kas Kalkan
this will take us all day
overnight at Kas. Visit the town of Kas. Visit the ancient theater which looks right into the Mediterranean.


Sail in the azure blue waters of the Mediterranean. The mornings are generally very calm. It feels like even the wind does not want to wake you up from the beautiful dream that you would be having under the millions of stars in the evenings. But the boat will already be on its way to another breath taking scene when you wake up today. You are now sailing at the coast of the Lycians. The "People from the Sea" as the archaeologists call them, had found this shore and the mountains suitable for their nature. With the uninterrupted horizon of the sea and the unconquerable peeks of the mountain, this land homed these free soul people for one thousand years. The Lycians must have used the perfumes from the tangerines and necklaces made from the mountain flowers.
After visiting Kalkan overnight at a quiet bay walking distance to Kas. With out the noise of the city , we will enjoy  an opportunity to walk to the ruins and the harbor of this fishing village


Day 04

Visit Kekova
Karakos( Salyangoz)

 

No matter how far away we tie our boat from Kale, we will wake up with the chorus of roosters crowing. Probably like every body else who hear these roosters we too will wonder what sort of roosters these are making such an incredible off tuned symphonic music. Sail to the Sunken city of Kekova.

Overnight at Karakos( Salyangoz)


Day 05

Kocakadinin yeri
Kale ucagiz

Sail to the beautiful bay of Gokkaya.
The  Hellenistic wall surrounds the Seljukian fortress which casts a shadow onto the Lycian tombs surrounding the village houses It truly is a legendary location for seeing the History of Anatolia at this far corner of the country.


Day 06

Ceneviz Limani

The Mediterranean Pirates found this cove as a perfect refuge. The setting is so complete with the images of his time that the only thing missing is the pirates themselves. 


Day 07

 

Olympos
Phasalis
Kemer
 

If the Mediterranean pirate stories would not interest you, Phasalis is worth visiting to be able to imagine the visits of the 2nd Century Roman Emperor Hadrian. In the privacy of this bay, you will be amazed how pine trees grow right out of the sea.

After lunch and swim stop our little dingy will take us off to the shore of a city
which takes its name after the home of Zeus and his family. Very appropriately named city Olympos leaves no doubt in any body's mind that it is the home of the Gods and Goddesses.

The ruins hidden in the depth of thick vegetation make you feel like they are playing hide and seek with you when they pop out in front of you with now warning in the utmost grandeur.
Overnight at the boat Kemer
