We will start this beatifull day by picking you up from your hotel, or if you would like to experience the fresh morning walk to the boat, go ahead. We will tell you where the boat is, but just make sure you are aboard on time, before 9:45 am. You will be taking pictures all day long so don’t forget you camera.

This is going to be about 1,5 hours sailing which is so exciting, refreshing, scenic, relaxing and fun. Do not forget your camera. We will sail on the best boat in Marmaris. All the amenities are available on the boat, food, bar, sun-beds, shower etc. No worries. You can see the picture of her in the picture galleries. By the time we arrive to Caunos it is almost about lunch time. So you will be served lunch which is included in the price, before we are move on with the trip. If you get hungry during the day you can purchase food and drinks from places we will visit. Just bring some snacks with you if you like.

Once we arrive to Dalyan and done with our lunch, we will have to move to the smaller river boats (caique) to explore this fascinating area. We will be a convoy of maybe 10-15 river boats. It is actually a very friendly atmosphere where you can make some friends in these boats. Passing through the beach (where you will spend your last few hours of the day) we will start the trip through the winding, reed-lined Dalyan river delta, past the awe inspiring 4th century BC Lycian rock tombs, carved high in the rocky cliff face, and eventually debark near the ancient Caunos harbor to wander among the ruins of this great port.

If you are into history, the ruins of this ancient port date from Hellenic period (5th century BC). Caunos was a major trade port at those times.

Around 2.00 pm, it is time to go to the famous Mud-Baths. Some say this mud-bath will make you feel 10 years younger :) Let’s hope so. This is so much fun. Go into the bath and change the color of your skin, play in the mud. Take tons of pictures. Sulfur pool is also here. Do not worry to get as muddy as possible. Lots of showers are available. Also available is a small cafe where you can relax.

Next stop is going to be the famous Turtle Beach where Caretta-Caretta turtle lay their eggs. You will swim here for a little more than an hour. We will show you where turtles lay their eggs (they are marked and protected) so that you make sure you don’t step on them. One side of this beach is the sea but the other side is the river where their water don’t mix. On the lake side you can find blue crabs. If you would like to taste this delicasie there will be locals selling them.

After the beach and swim break, we will go back to our boat for our journey back to Marmaris with a few swimming break along the way. Usually, because people have great time all day long and get to know each-other, way back of is always fun with lots of rink and music.

This is a lovely day. Don’t miss it! Send us an e-mail from the FORM on the right for us to plan the best holiday for you.

Lunch was great and trying the blue crabs on the way back from the Mud Bath was brilliant they are lovely, even one of our group who doesnt normally like crab enjoyed them. Skin felt lovely after the mud bath and the Sulphar bath was lovely and hot but did stink lol………a must do whilst in Turkey

  • Kevin Wainford

    is there someone to take pictures when u hav had a mud bath and can you buy them on the day ?

  • Ianhurn

    Liked the experience very much, except for the resturant where the man with the glasses who was collecting the money for the drinks was a total disgrace to the turkish people (who are very friendly people). This man was preying on everyone there and even making me and the others in our group feel very guilty about being there, really put us off

  • christina

    what insurance is included in the quad safari?

  • liz w.yorks

    I have done this trip about 10 times with different friends ,a lovely trip especially if done by boat to turtle beach ,must admit you smell the mud baths before you see them and you need an old cossie/trunks as the mud can slightly stain so don’t wear new swimwear ,I only braved the mud twice as don’t like sliding about in it as very slippy getting in/out and doesn’t feel very nice and of course the stink but dries on you as a muddy greenish colour and you all look rather funny covered head to toe in it ,granted your skin feels nice after but I now sit and chill with nice cool drink and seem to get asked a lot to take photos for people ,best part for me is the river boats and turtle beach with the wonderful beach and warm clear sea [no wonder the turtles picked it]and try a pancake from one of the tents ,they are made in front of you and are mouth watering also sand red hot so wear sandals unless you want burnt feet
