Trip Itinerary

Ready to depart Fethiye, you’ll cruise to Butterfly Valley where you can take a dip in the Mediterranean Sea or hike to a nearby waterfall while keeping your eyes peeled for the diversity of moths and butterflies that can be found here. 

Following lunch, we’ll travel to Oludeniz (Blue Lagoon) where you may have the option to go paragliding. From the top of Babadag Mountain, you’ll fly 2,000 metres over Oludeniz Beach and the Blue Lagoon to discover why this is one of the most spectacular places in the world for paragliding.

While we are permitted to cruise alongside the ruins to get a good look, swimming and snorkelling are not permitted as it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In the afternoon, we’ll anchor nearby so you can explore Kekova Island and Simena Castle, which offers magnificent views across the surrounding bay.
