The basics

Cruise ships set sail around the Gulf of Fethiye from Fethiye and Marmaris, with options ranging from a day cruise around the 12 islands, to 3-, 4-, or 7-night cruises along the Turkish Riviera. Choose to cruise the coast in a traditional wooden gulet, with accommodation on-board, or charter a private yacht for a luxury experience. Along the way, visit islands such as Gocek, Tersane, and Domuz; stop to swim, snorkel, or scuba dive at remote beaches and bays; or discover ancient sites such as the Lycian tombs of Dalyan or the white-seashell beach of Cleopatra Island.

Nice to be on a family owned vessel...
Nice to be on a family owned vessel. Captain very professional and pleasant, and his wife an excellent cook. Dogukan A is a well-maintained gulet with twin bed cabins including bathroom with shower. She has a full set of sails and even though winds were light, the captain sailed in Fethiye Bay.

Day Trip Destinations around the Gulf

As well as exploring the 12 islands, day cruises set out from Fethiye to nearby Ölüdeniz beach. Nicknamed Turkey’s ‘Dead Sea’ for its calm waters, it’s famous for its Blue Lagoon, separated from the ocean by a spit of white sand, with the rocky peak of Babadağ Mountain looming in the background. Close by, another day trip favorite is the Butterfly Valley, a remote beach and rocky gorge that can only be reached by boat and takes its name from the hundreds of rare butterflies that fill the valley during the spring and summer months.
