Single-day gulet trips from Olympos?

Hi there -- we are hoping to take a one-day blue cruise departing from Olympos (or a close-by port). I've researched numerous companies offering charters but none that I've found offer tours of less than 3 days. Does anyone know of companies that offer single day trips? Thanks!

1. Re: Single-day gulet trips from Olympos?

yes of course there are one day trips leaving from Olympos..there are local companies that sell these trips..so when you are there you can inquire..you dont need to book in advance..they leave at about 1030am and get back around 6pm..all day on the boat including lunch

most if not all the boats are owned on the Cirali side of Olympos..but they pick up also off the beach at the entrance of Olympos..

Are you staying in Olympos or Cirali ??

Please make sure that you do your research in the difference between Olympos and the neighboring village of Cirali..both share the same beach

PS...There are always many mix-ups between the village of Cirali and the village ( valley ) of Olympos. Here's a bit of clarification on the subject.

Cirali / Olympos is located approx. 80km southwest from Antalya. It is quiet and peaceful village perfect for families, nature lovers and for those wishing to get away from the mass touristic cities or towns.

First the beach of Olympos ( located in the village of Cirali ) is shared by both villages. There are two entrances to these villages located on the main highway between Antalya -Fethiye.

One entrance (Cirali) will bring you down into the village of after 7kms. Here you can reach the beach by car, mini-bus or by foot. Once on the beach ( 4kms long -secluded - clean ) you can walk into the entrance of the ancient city of Olympos visiting the ruins located on either side of the creek.

The second entrance on the main highway from Antalya is the entrance to the village of Olympos ( 12 kms from the main highway ), Cavus Koy, and Adrasan. Here in this village are more accomodations with treehouses, bugalows, pansiyons and small hotels as well.

Olympos is very famous for the '' treehouses'' and offers a bit of a different lifestyle that Cirali It tends to cater to more younger crowd or students including backpackers and budget accomodations. In Olympos there are more bars and discos where as Cirali caters to a quieter crowd with only a few local bars playing live turkish music.

To reach the beach from Olympos village one must walk through the ancient city of Olympos. Depending on where one is staying the walk to the beach can be a few minutes up to longer ranging from 800m - 3 or 4 kms. Staying in Olympos village to visit the flames at night there are group tours with mini-buses that travel back up to the main highway road ( 12km ) and then after 1 km down into the other entrance (Cirali - another 11kms down ). You can walk if you wish through Olympos and then along the beach for 4kms or more to visit the flames. Don't forget to bring your flashlight as the ancient city has no lights at night.

<<< October/November visit to Turkey. What are the approx costs of the one day gulet cruises?<<<

I highly doubt that they will be running that late in the year as the sea is usually too rough. you can inquire in Cirali about the boat trips at Kumsal Rent a Car located on the Cirali beach

<<What is the approximate cost?<< 50 liras per person

<<Do they visit Kekova sunken city?<< No..too far away by boat
