Boat Trips PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 27 February 2009

Things to do in Kalkan.  In Kalkan harbour you will find several boats and gulets offering a variety of trips.  Often your trip will include food cooked in the galley, and ample opportunities to swim in the shallow waters near Kalkan. 

Typically you will set sail around 10am and return to the harbour some time after 5pm.

It's possible to hire a boat just for you and your family, however it will probably work out less expensive per head if you join others to fill the boat. 

If sailing with others you need to make sure they are people you can get along with for the day!  Make sure you agree the price before you sail, and check what the extras will cost - e.g. beer, wine etc

Details of boats in Kalkan harbour can be found in the KTLN Business DirectoryClick here to go there.

Boat trips

Trips from other local places
A short drive to Kaş will offer you the opportunity of boat trips to Kekova or Meis.

Typically a trip to Kekova will include many stops for swimming in the Turquise sea, a fresh BBQ lunch on board or ashore, the opportunity to sail over the submerged ruins of the sunken city of Simena. and a stop-off visit to the village of Kaleköy, with enough time to climb to the Crusader castle, or enjoy an ice cream or a drink in a waterside cafe.

Boats leave Kaş around 9.30 am and arrive back around 6.00pm. The sea can be a little choppy on the return sail, but it is a great day out if you enjoy the sea!

You can enjoy a calmer boat trip around Kekova, and a similar itinerary, by driving to Üçağız, about 20 minutes beyond Kaş, off the D400, and taking a boat from there.

For a shorter boat trip, take a boat from Kaş to the quintessentially Greek island of Kastellorizo (Meis in Turkish), just a 20 minute ferry ride away.

You will need your passport and some euros, though there is an ATM on the island. Ferries leave Kaş around 10am, but you should arrive at the boats by 9.30 to allow for passport formalities.
