As they said during booking, they picked us up in the morning. The car was comfortable and the road trip not really long. In any case we got some breaks. During the boat trip we visited few nice spots. They were isolated and not many people were around which was super!! The sunken city was a real attraction and the guide told us some nice things about Myra. We had lunch at a charming place and the food was nice. I strongly recommend this boat trip to Kekova. The landscape is stunning and everything was perfect.
Sailing to Kekova made our day exceptional and memorable. We truly enjoyed every minute of the boat trip. The crew and guide made everything for us to be comfortable and happy. What really counts as a highlight for me is the quality of the water. It is so clean, transparent…swimming around was just thrilling,, to be honest that was the first time I got to swim into such clean waters. We also visited a charming church at Myra. Food was tasty. It was a pleasure to join this boat trip, just wonderful.
