Step back in time and come and join us as we set sail on the high seas for a day of fun and adventure like no other. The Alanya Viking Boat Trip takes in all the amazing scenery of the Alanya coast line including our famous swimming spots of Pirates Cave, Lovers cave and Phosphurus cave. Added to this is the sensation of cruising the Turkish riviera on one of the most unique vessels around. A real life floating Viking ship. Leave your land worries behind and join the rest of your shipmates for a great day of exploration and fun as we traverse the seas of surrounding Alanya.
Our friendly drivers will escort you from your hotel to the Alanya harbour where our one of a kind vessel is waiting for you to board. We’ll set sail at about 9am and then spend the whole day out in the Mediterranean sea. As we leave behind the land you’ll be able to take some great photos of the old town, the red tower and of course the harbour. The area of Alanya is best seen from the water and what a ship to experience this sight from.
First stop on our day of fun is the famous Pirate cave. It is said that pirates roamed these seas many years ago. The caves were perfect hiding places for their prisoners and their treasure. Now the best treasure we can find is the abundance of marine life. Jump into the welcoming waters and swim into and around the caves. The local fish are all over the place which makes for a unique and fun experience. We’ll make our way along the coastline to Phosphurus and Lovers cave, both offering great swimming. You can even feed the fish and see them swarm around trying to get the food.
We’ll also get a chance to swim at the famous Cleopatra beach. If we’re lucky you might see dolphins or even sea turtles so make sure you keep an eye out. On board there are fun and games for everyone including children’s entertainers.
You’ll definitely want to bring along your camera as well as extra sun cream and of course your swim wear for today. Lunch is served on board and there is a free flow soft drinks bar. When we return to Alanya harbour your driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.
Our friendly local driver will come and collect you from your hotel and transfer you to the Alanya harbour for a 9am departure.
One of the favourite activities of our guests is to swim in the inviting Mediterranean waters and we have plenty of different chances to do this. The waters are full of life with colourful fish and you may even be lucky enough to spot a sea turtle or a local dolphin.
We will visit the most famous of our local caves on this day tour. Pirate’s cave is where the sea dogs of old used to hoard their prisoners and their treasure. You can swim up close and explore the cave if you like. Phosphurus cave and Lovers cave also offer us great swimming opportunities and are not to be missed.
We make some swimming and relaxing stops at 2 of the area’s best beaches. The famous Cleopatra beach with its long golden sand is a must for sun worshipers. We will also visit Ulash beach which gives us great swimming and offers us a chance to see even more marine life. This is a great way to sample all of the best spots of the Alanya coast in one day trip.
You will not go bored on board our Viking ship. For those that want to relax and take in the sun there is plenty of room to do so. The children will be specially catered for by our team of Viking entertainers. We have plenty of fun and games in store to keep them happy. There is a free flow soft drink bar and alcohol can be purchased. We even have a foam disco to keep everyone in high spirits on the high seas. There is a full lunch included in the ticket price as well. All of your needs are catered for.
Things to bring:
You will need to bring your swim wear, plenty of sun cream, towels, sunglasses and hats. Also don’t forget to bring your camera as there are plenty of great photo opportunities both on board and in the water.
Following lunch, the boat will return back making some stops for some last minute swims. Once we arrive back at Alanya harbour, normally mid to late afternoon, your driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.
