This 8 day, 7 night Turkish gulet cruise departing from Kemer takes in some great historical sights Turkey has to offer down along the Lycian coast. You will get to Visit the ancient city of Myra near Demre, have the option of going on the Saklikent Hidden City tour and also get to cruise over the Sunken City. With all these amazing sights to see there is still plenty of time to devote to relaxing and swimming in the many bays that you encounter along the way like Gokkaya, Kekova, Adrasan Cove and Ucagiz village to name a few. These beautiful bays tend to be full of turtles, so be sure to grab a snorkel and goggles to see if you can spot a few on your many swims. The fun does not stop there either; you will get to experience the full range of Turkish culture - from wandering through local markets, experiencing the warm hospitality of the crew and if you are inclined, submerging yourself in nightlife along the way.
