Full description
After being collected from your Kalkan or Kaş accommodation, you will be ready for your full-day boat trip through the crystal-clear Mediterranean waters. Beginning from Ucagız village, you will sail for 1 hour to arrive at the heart of Kekova. Here you will be able to take your first swim break at Tersane Bay, viewing the sunken city ruins through the glass-bottomed boat. You will then have the opportunity to dine on a delicious open buffet lunch at Gokkaya Bay, where guests will have a second chance to swim through the clear water. From there, you will visit the pirate cave and Burc Bay, before eventually stopping at Simena. Once at Simena, you will have the choice to walk up to the castle that boasts magnificent views over the bay. Alternatively, you can explore the village and settle into one of the cafes well known and admired for their home-made ice-cream. You will then have the opportunity to enjoy a final swim near Ucagız Village, before the drive back to Kalkan.

Great tour! They picked us up at our hotel in Kas around 9:45 (Kalkan is earlier). Lots of swimming stops in beautiful coves- so make sure to bring your towel. Lunch was excellent and cooked on the grill at the back of the boat. I do wish there was a little more time in Simena as it was only enough time to hike to the top of the castle and get an ice cream. The guides English was good and even came around and asked if we had any questions. Keep in mind this is more of a swimming tour than a historic site seeing tour. Would recommend!

One of the best experiences ever. Such good value for money. The food is absolutely amazing and there is such a good atmosphere on the boat as it is family run and they are all so friendly. Swim stops and scenery are incredible. Can’t believe I had one of the best days of my life for only £34 !!

So, first of all it was quite hard to find which boat trip to book as there’s not many reviews anywhere at all! So we picked this one as the description sounded really good. And we were not disappointed! We booked it the day before, they picked us up from our apartment with a mini bus as they did for everyone else. We drove for an hour until we got to Kekova. The guide Mehmet was really nice and spoke English quite well and gave us al the history throughout the entire journey. Lunch was AMAZING and included in the price as well as morning snack, water, juice and watermelon! It wasn’t a big group but everyone talked to each other and got to know everyone, so a very friendly trip! We all swam together everytime we stopped at a different bay, you can also do snorkelling. We saw the sunken city (super interesting and beautiful) and we also stopped at Simena where you could enjoy it for an hour and visit the castle as well as try their goat milk home made ice cream. 9h trip, super fun!
