Taking this boat tour is certainly the most convenient way to explore sightseeing of Alanya. Exploring the coast line by sea gives you the chance to see where history and myth happened while you soak up as much sun as you can.
What to expect when you book Alanya Boat Trip. During this tour you will visit the main touristic sightseeing like the Old Shipyard and the Red Towers. This boat trip will also give you a sublime view at Alanya castle from various angles. The fortress was built in the 13th century, but the fortifications date back to much earlier, probably the 3rd century BC. It’s really amazing how they managed to stay in such good shape over the years.
Alanya has got a rich history regarding roman occupation, emperors and pirates. The boat will stop at The Pirates, Lovers and Phosphorus caves, where you have the opportunity to swim in and around the caves. According to a story there was a connection between The Pirates cave and the castle. With this passageway pirates used to send girls, they had kidnapped, to the castle. This secret path to the castle has never been found. It’s said the passageway collapsed and closed the entrance. The phosphorus cave is named after the phosphorescent colour of the light inside the cave. The sunlight shines through the water into the cave which gives the water and walls of the caves this brilliant phosphorescent colour. The cave of lovers was used by lovers to meet in secret. The cave’s eastern entrance is about two meters above the sea. Also, this cave is said to have a secret passageway through the mountain which brings you up at the western side of the peninsula.
This boat tour is a perfect blend of sightseeing, history, sunbathing and swimming. The boat will stop near two different beaches, Ulas and Cleopatra beach. Every stop will last around 30 minutes. This gives you enough time to explore the sea creatures in the fascinating shades of blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. If you are lucky, you might see dolphins and turtles.
On the way back to the harbour there is an animation program for entertainment on the boat. This includes a foam party with great music. All soft drinks and the delicious lunch are included in the price of the boat trip. Alcoholic drinks you can buy from the bar.
Alanya is a loud and vibrant city. Enjoying your holiday on a boat is the perfect opportunity to escape the chaos of the city and see it from a different perspective.

That wasn’t just another boat trip! I went on this yesterday with my parents and we all had a lovely day at sea! I was happy to find out that we could combine some sightseeing during sailing. We enjoyed some cool views over the castle and we saw an old shipyard. The swimming stops were insane! So beautiful and tranquil, not to mention that the shades of blue are beyond any imagination. My favourite was Cleopatra beach of course, one of the most impressive beaches I’ve been. 100% recommended!!
We had a brilliant day with Excursion Mania as always. The boat trip was excellent, we had plenty of sun, swimming stops, lovely food and good hosts. We even saw dolphins swimming. I can easily say a brilliant day outing and worth every penny.
This was a perfect day out for everybody in the group. Plenty of room to sun tan, free cold drinks, and free lunch all included in the price. Plenty of swimming time, shows, foam party entertainment, good music, we really loved this day out. People on board were brilliant and though the boat was busy, toilet facilities were always clean.
If we every come bak to Alanya we will definately go again this boat trip with Excursion Mania. You are picked up from your hotel and dropped back to your hotel at the end of the day. Pretty much a door to door service.
If you have children, they will love this tour.
