Reviews
Start your day with a hotel pickup from your centrally located Marmaris hotel, and then travel to the water’s edge to hop aboard your sightseeing boat. Take a seat on deck or inside the cabin, and relax as you cruise around Marmaris Bay to Adaköy, the peninsula that juts out into the Mediterranean Sea below Marmaris.

Your first stop is at a secluded beach on the peninsula’s north coast, known locally as ‘aquarium bay.’ Use your time to swim in the clear waters with the colorful fish, or simply sunbathe on the beach. A set of phosphorus caves are nearby that you can explore easily, if you wish.

From Marmaris, continue cruising around Adaköy, and then head east toward Dalyan, the gorgeous coastal village west of Fethiye. Savor a lunch of grilled chicken, salad and either rice or pasta as you cruise, and then dock at İztuzu Beach for your next break. Known to many as ‘turtle beach’ for its large population of loggerhead turtles, the sun-drenched sandy beach is a conservation area and prime breeding ground for the endangered reptiles.

Take some time to swim, sunbathe and look out for friendly turtles along the beach, and then hop aboard your riverboat for a cruise along the Dalyan River. Stop at the local mud baths and thermal pool, and make the most of some free time to wallow in the mineral-dense mud that’s said to aid skin complaints and rheumatism. Cleanse yourself with a refreshing dip in the natural thermal water, and then cruise past the ancient King’s Tombs at Kaunos while learning about their history from your guide.

Swap back onto your main boat at İztuzu Beach, and finally cruise back around Adaköy to Marmaris. After stepping onto dry land, your day trip finishes with a hotel drop-off.

Was a very enjoyable day - exactly as described and both my husband and I had a lovely day. Caution - take throwaway flips flops to walk around the mud baths - very stoney and quite a walk between the mud bath and the showers and back again to the thermal pool. The highlight was one the campest, funniest waiters/hosts Club Captain Amman - he made the trip even more memorable - his table top belly dancing was hilarious.

Excellent Day Out. Great ship, friendly staff, and plenty of space. Food was good also. My only reason for not giving this 5 stars was the fact that the staff search bags on the way onto the ship to check you don't have any drinks or food with you, they even confiscate water from you. They appear too desperate to make more money from you on food and drinks which aren't cheap especially when you are out from 8am to 7pm in the evening. Apart from that was a great day out, with amazing scenery, fun mud maths and was very well organised. Also lovely the belly dancing guy on the way home.

This tour is a long day. Leaving Marmaris at 9.30 and arriving back at sunset approx 8pm. Starting with a slow trip along the coastline of Marmaris before sailing along more coastline of Turkey. There is a hard sell for drinks and food even tho lunch is included. Most of the staff are quietly helpful. One character tho entertaining at first, becomes a bit tedious. Loud music and constant barrage of let me get you a cold drink spoilt the day. Be prepared for spending a lot of time in the sun! During July / August that can be temperatures of 40C plus! We did not get spend time on isolated/private beach, it was a dip in the sea stay close to the boat type of swim. There was a more leisurely break on Turtle beach near Dalyan, which was for an hour. The cruise along the Dalyan River is uneventful apart from seeing the Kings Toombs there is little to see. The River cruise final destination is the Mud Bath/ Thermal Spa Pool. All a bit rushed. With a lot of people and the mud bath itself being very slippery, there was not enough time to enjoy a good covering of mud and thorough showering off. time did not allow with high numbers of visitors. Belongings are left on the table - everyone is at the risk, tho there is CCTV. An experience, but not one we will repeat.
