DEPARTURES

NEED TO BOOK AHEAD ??

You do need to book ahead. Guide books recommend that you should go to the harbour and book, but this has changed. In the last few years our cruises have become so popular that not many people visiting Turkey leave without experiencing the Fethiye - Olympos Cruise.

Please note that in peak season we may be fully booked 2.5 - 3 weeks ahead of departure times so booking ahead is essential.

SLEEPING / ACCOMMODATION

Depending on the boat, cabins have 1 big double bed, 2 beds or 3 beds, all cabins have a private bathroom and hot shower. You can share your cabin with your partner or friends. If you are travelling solo, you will share a cabin with another person unless the boat isn’t full.

You can also book a private cabin for yourself for double the cost. Most people sleep on the deck under the stars rather than their cabins!

WHERE ARE THE PEOPLE FROM ??

Large percentage of our customers are from English speaking countries, however we also get guests from other European countries.

QUIET TRIPS OR PARTY BOATS ??

Customers make the atmosphere so it all depends on who is on the yacht. Alaturka has departures everyday, some days more than 1 or 2 yachts are leaving, so we do consider age groups and requests when booking. We try to make it work for everyone but we cannot guarantee whether it is going to be quiet or a party boat, as we take bookings through out the year and only meet customers the morning of the cruise.

CREW

Usually 3 crew on each boat, Captain, Chef & Skipper. Depending on size & conditions of Gulet there may be 1 less or 1 extra crew. Rare but we may not have good English speaking crew on board on some trips.

WHAT TO BRING ON BOARD ??

Your passports for check in

Towels (we don't provide)

Personal items such as Sun block & after sun lotion, Sunglasses, Swimsuit, Camera, Shoes for walks off the boat.

We don't sell cigarettes or snacks such as chocolate and crisps etc onboard, you can bring but we you can also buy at some stops so no need to stock up

TOWELS

Not provided so please bring your own.

WHAT NOT TO BRING ON BOARD

Please don't bring any drinks onboard (including water), all sold on board at reasonable prices.

CHARGING, POWER, ELECTRICITY

All cabins have normal power Plugs with 12W or 24W power which wont be enough to charge laptops, at ports we have 220W when charging gulet batteries. Some of our Gulets has generators which would allow charging 220W when its turned on.

OTHER ARRANGEMENTS

ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES AND SERVICES

You can book some additional activities with us before the cruise begins like these -

PARAGLIDING OVER OLUDENIZ (BLUE LAGOON) - 2000 METERS

In one word; Amazing!!!. Over the best beach in Europe, Oludeniz...

It’s easier than you think; you just walk down the hill tandem (with a pilot). You’re in the air on your 2nd or 3rd step then swooping down really smoothly above one of the best paragliding areas in the world for up to 45 mins, before landing on blue lagoon. Piece of cake!

DIVING IN KAS

Kas is a favorite spot for diving in Turkey. You can see some Ottoman ships or German planes from the Second World War, there are also some Ancient ruins to see. We can arrange this experience for you.

You need to book all additional activities before your cruise, so we can arrange a speed boat pick up / drop off service to the boat. The pick up / drop off service is included.

ARRIVING DEMRE BY PRIVATE CAR ??

We do have a vehicle transfer service between Demre and Fethiye. You can drop your car off in Demre and our driver will deliver it to you at Fethiye Harbour when you finish the cruise. If you would like to use this service, you should let us know when booking your cruise.

This service costs 50 Euros, excluding fuel.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Our Blue Cruises are a must do of the Mediterranean and an overall highlight of Turkey according to our guests. However, please read this section.

We use our standard gulets for our regular cabin cruises. In some cases they will be equipped with AC however, are not turned on for these particular cruises. All regular cruises will not provide AC.

Hotel or cruise comfort should not be expected on standard Blue Cruises. Most cabins have a private bathroom with showers, enough space for your bags, and very few have wardrobes and power outlets. Size of cabins also vary on all boats, They are adequate enough but may be smaller than expected.

All our gulets are Turkish handmade and wooden, therefore all are unique in size, cabin style, bedding configuration and condition. Each gulet is different and you will rarely find two the same.

BEFORE PLANNING

Travelling from various destinations to Olympos for cruise?

We promote this tour as a Fethiye to Olympos blue cruise'' or ''Olympos to Fethiye blue cruise,'' but the part between Olympos and Demre is a bus transfer, the cruise starts from Demre (see the map above). We offer free pick up from accommodations in Olympos leaving around 10 am.

If you wont be staying in Olympos the night before and arriving from other destinations to join on our cruise (from Cappadocia, Antalya, Istanbul, Fethiye etc), it would be easier for you to travel direct to Demre and pick you up from Demre bus station around 11:45 - 12:15.

If you're meeting us in Demre bus station, make sure you let us know in advance, otherwise if you are not in Olympos in the morning for the pickup, your spot may be sold.
