Gullet Special Offer



What to bring
Travel light is our best advice to you, swimwear and T-shirts is all you will need on board in the daytime. In the evenings people dress casually, but bring sweaters and trousers if you are coming in the cooler months. It's a good idea to bring a pair of soft shoes or sandals just to use on the boat.
On board we provide hand towels only so please bring your own bath and beach towels. All this should be packed into a soft bag which can be folded and stowed away to give more room in your cabin, not a suitcase.
The Mediterranean sun is very bright and on a boat hotter than you think, be sure to pack sunglasses, a good suntan lotion and a hat. If mosquitoes find you tasty then bring mosquito repellent and a camera is an absolute must.

The highlights on your journey

Butterfly Valley: At a distance of 5-7 km from Oludeniz, this interesting canyon is surrounded by approximately 350 meter high mountains. It takes its name from the butterflies called as ‘Jarsey Tiger’ and seen between June and September. It is an Earth Eden with its waterfall flows both in summer and winter, large beach, clear water, brightly shining pebbles and oleanders decorating the environs. Possibilities like a camping area with tent sites, restaurant, bar, shower cabinets, changing cubicles, etc. are offered in the valley which is the meeting place of world wanderers For thousands of years, its only habitants were the butterflies and local fauna. Still now, the valley hosts 136 kinds of butterflies and moths within the fascinating waterfalls !

Oludeniz: The Blue Lagoon is 1 of the best places in the world to do absolutely nothing but soak up the sun amid stunning natural surroundings ! The water is a brilliant sapphire blue due to the complete absence of weed on the white sandy sea bottom.

St Nicholas Island: Byzantine and Early-Christian ruins from 5th-11th centuries lie tucked among the pine trees and partly under the water on St-Nicholas Island (Gemiler Adasi) It has a bay well-protected from the wind and a beach surrounded with pine and olive trees attracts visitors from neighborhood towns beside the people arriving with cruise boats.

Kalkan is a well-maintained and quiet harbor town, located 25 km west of Kas. It is an attractive town, once a fishing village inhabited mainly by the Ottoman Greeks. It has become increasingly popular since the 1980s, with a huge holiday village covering the southern hillside. The small town centre which overlooks the bay is filled with quaint, traditional white-washed houses, shuttered windows and balconies with brilliantly-colored flowers. The marina caters for the requirements of visiting yachts, as well as several restaurant and shops in the city centre.

Kas is a small fishing, yachting and tourist town, 168 km west of the city of Antalya. As a tourist town it is relatively unspoiled. The town of Kas is on a hill running down to the sea. In ancient times it was a member of the Lycian League, and its importance during this time is confirmed by the presence of one of the richest Lycian necropolis. Kas itself is a quiet pleasant town with its blue sea and narrow streets scented with jasmine flowers.

Simena is the ancient Lycian name of Kalekoy, it faces the island of Kekova, and can be reached only by sea. The village lies amidst a Lycian necropolis, which is partially sunken underwater. Kalekoy is overlooked by a Byzantine castle, built in the Middle Ages to fight the pirates which nested in Kekova. The castle contains a small theatre.

Kekova Island, famous with the ancient sunken city (ancient Simena) and Ucagiz (ancient Teimioussa). Kekova has an area of 4.5 km² and is uninhabited. On its northern side there are the ruins—partly sunken—of Dolchiste/Dolikisthe, an ancient town which was destroyed by an earthquake during the second century A.D. Rebuilt and still flourishing during the Byzantine Empire period, it was completely abandoned because of Arab incursions.

Olympos is a green valley at the southern coast of Turkey, 90 km southwest of Antalya city near the Town of Kemer. The ancient city was founded in the Hellenistic period dating back to the 2nd century BC, sharing its name with the nearby Mount Olympos. Near Olympos, located in the neighboring village of Cirali and about 200 meters above sea level, where the eternal flames called the Chimaera may be seen issuing from the ground. The source of the flames is actually natural gas, mostly methane, seeping through cracks in the earth. The mythical Chimaera - or Chimera - was a savage beast who sprouted fire from its mouth. The Olympians worshipped the god of fire Hephaestos (Vulcan), probably connected to the eternal flame.

Apart from the ruins, modern time Olympos village is well known for its simple
tree-house camps, where most tourists stay, and a natural environment thanks to forests and vineyards near to a beautiful beach. The Olympos village is located some distance from the shore in the heart of the Olympos national park by the banks of a small river. The surrounding area of the village offers best opportunities for trekking, mountain biking, canyoning and rock climbing.

Demre is the Lycian town of Myra, the home of Saint Nicholas of Myra the original Santa Claus; located 25km west of Finike and 48km east of Kas, Myra was one of the most important cities in antique Lycia. Coins have been found dating back to 300 BC but logically the city must have been founded centuries earlier. The city thrived as part of the Roman Empire and many public buildings were constructed. The earliest church of St. Nicholas at Myra was built in the 6th century. The present-day church stems mainly from the 8th century; a monastery was added in the second half of the 11th century. The ruins of the Lycian and Roman towns are mostly covered by alluvial silt
