Ahoy there shipmates! It’s time to set sail on one of Kemer’s best family day trips. Come and join our exclusive pirate yacht as we take to the high seas and sail from bay to bay on a day jammed packed with fun and adventure. You and your family will not want to miss this fantastic day full of sun bathing, great swimming spots, snorkelling and even the chance to perhaps see a dolphin or two. A full lunch is included in the price on this great way to get off the mainland and experience a day of cruising the Turkish Mediterranean.
Our wonderfully unique pirate ship will depart Kemer harbour in the morning and set sail for the ancient city of Phaselis. During the voyage you will be treated to some stunning views as we sail along the coastline of our amazing area. Upon arrival in Phaselis guests will have their first opportunity to experience the calm, warm waters of the Mediterranean as we set anchor and enjoy a phenomenal swimming spot in the beautiful bay. The sheltered bays are always calm and inviting and are a great option to those with smaller members of the family. For those that would like to explore the ancient city you are welcome to go to shore and visit the aqueduct and ancient theatre.
While we’re still anchored at Phaselis bay you will be treated to a tasty Turkish lunch that is included in the price. Following lunch, the ship will set sail again. Sit or even lie back and enjoy the winds coming in from the sea as the sun shines down and the waves lap against the side of the boat. When you’re in the Mediterranean there really is only one way to travel and this is it. Our second stop is at Mehmet Ali Buku which is again a calm and safe area to swim and snorkel.
Our waters are full of life and the sights that you will encounter if you are a snorkeller will amaze you. Tropical fish and coral of all different colours and sizes inhabit these parts and there’s always plenty of activity to watch. As we slowly make our way back towards Kemer we will stop yet again to make sure you have even more chances to enjoy the welcoming waters of our sea. Our last stop is at a small inlet called Alaca waters where again you will enjoy the best of swimming conditions.
Your day begins when our friendly driver will come and collect you from your hotel. You will be transferred to the Kemer harbour where our pirate ship awaits you.
Crew and Boat: Our pirate boat is without doubt one of the most recognisable yachts on the water around here. A great experience for the young and young at heart. Our crew’s main mission of the day is to keep you all happy and entertained right from the start. Please feel free to ask them any questions you may have.
Lunch: While we are anchored in Phaselis bay lunch will be served on board and is included in the full price of the tour.
We will have 3 different swimming stops. Phaselis bay, Mehmet Ali Buku and Alaca water all offer fantastic and safe swimming conditions. You and your family and friends will love the warm, welcoming waters of our Mediterranean Sea. For those who like to snorkel the life that is going on right under the waves is a sight to behold. Due to the warm currents and ample feeding grounds there is an abundance of marine life here and there is always a lot of action to observe. Fish of all sizes and colours and coral reefs make for a perfect experience. Due to the calm nature of the waters you do not need to be an expert swimmer or snorkeller to enjoy this experience. This is an ideal experience for a family as everyone can take part.
Phaselis Ancient City: If you prefer to explore the ancient city of Phaselis during our first swimming stop, you can head into the town for an extra fee. In the ancient city you can visit the aqueduct which is a fine example of ancient Roman architecture. There are also baths and the remains of an old theatre that are well worth a visit. This city was once a major trading hub and had 3 separate ports to transport goods across the world. It played a very important part in Turkey’s history and is not to be missed if you are a history enthusiast.
Return Back: Following our day of relaxation, swimming, snorkelling and generally messing about on the sea we will head back to Kemer harbour where your driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.
