This is an example itinerary suggested by the BeBlue skippers who are experts in the navigation area. The route can be planned on the needs of the group before departure or during navigation.
Day 1: Check-in
Check-in available from 5 p.m. at the embarkation Marina. After the technical check-in and a short presentation of the boat, you can take your seat in the cabins and board the galley before setting sail.
From Murter we leave early in the morning and head north in the direction of Kapy Creek, which offers moorings and excellent anchorages in a wonderful bay surrounded by pine and olive trees. You can go ashore for a dinner in the best restaurant in the area, Kapi Creek Restaurant, or relax on board.
On the west, in the bay of Fethiye, you will find one of the coziest and most suggestive anchorage spots in the entire Lycia: Ekincik Limani. You will be astounded by the clear waters, a paradise for scuba diving lovers, by the frangraces of maritime pine trees and by the variety of marine and terrestrial birds that here have their favourite habitat. You can visit the village of Dalyan and the ruins of Caunos, one of the most important archaeological sites in Turkey.
From Ekincik Limani we raise sail towards Gocek. Here you will find a wonderful sheltered bay and the village of Gocek. Moor in one of its three elegantly equipped marinas, D Marin, Municipality or Marin Turk, and go ashore to get lost among the little shops and bars in the centre and enjoy a super fresh fish dinner.
We sail to the south-west to reach the spectacular anchorage of Tomb Bay, with the high Taurus Mountains in the background covered by green pine forests. The bay is named after the ancient Lycian settlement where, according to tradition, the tombs were built within the town instead of in graveyards, thus becoming an integral part of the daily life of the population. You can admire the ancient mausoleums and the suggestive funerary stone buildings surrounding all the bay since thousands of years.
After breakfast, we set sail towards the south for a day dedicated to a nice sailing that will take you beyond the Gulf of Fethiye, to reach Bestas Limani in the enchanted Cold Water Bay, with pure white beaches and amazing blue waters. The name of the bay derives from its many cold water springs blending with the sea, creating a temperature difference that makes a dive in these waters a very refreshing experience.
We navigate to the north-east to arrive in the beautiful bay of Fethiye Koylari, south-east of the Orman Piknik Alani headland. Its blue waters and the peace of its beach will offer you a totally relaxing day. Return to the Marina at 18:00 with overnight stay in the port included.
Day 8: Check-out
Disembarkation is scheduled at 09:00 on Saturday.
The itinerary may be subject to variations based on weather conditions, safety conditions and the technical assessments of the captain of the boat. This program is intended as indicative and not binding.
Kapy Creek bay is the favourite one for sailors, little but welcoming. Fathiye is an ancient town, embracing a natural harbour, marvellous monuments, breathtaking rocky-walls and a ghost town far from the crowded places. Gocek bay is the perfect paradise for the ones who are searching for peace and tranquillity, because it isn't so weel-known; it is considered the main center for sea lovers and it will give you everything you need, always keeping the semplicity. Dom't miss the opportunity for an unforgettable dive into the turquoise water in Tomb Bay, while Cold Water Bay's name derives from the cold marine flows that cross the sea.
