Full description

Embark on a fascinating full-day cruise traveling from the Manavgat River in Side to the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Stay on the lookout for wild dolphins, admire panoramic views of the coastline, and listen as your guide shares interesting facts about the local marine life.

Get picked up conveniently from your hotel and dropped off at the Side pier. Set sail along the Manavgat River before going out to the sea. Watch the river turtles lined up on the banks and pass the shipyards where all the wooden river boats are built. Stop where the river meets the sea to take a dip or a stroll on the beach. After your relaxing break, hop back on board and move on to some of the most scenic stretches along the shoreline as you taste a freshly-prepared lunch. Depending on tidal conditions, sail east or go to the ancient peninsula of Side, with another swimming break on the way. Allow your guide to point out dolphins and loggerhead sea turtles in their natural habitat.

If the weather is favorable, your captain will take you further east for incredible views while you enjoy a foam party. Alternatively, go in the direction of Alanya and stop at a small, remote island for a walk before returning to Side.

Fab trip that was incredible value for money. Sadly we didn’t see any dolphins as towards the end of the season and just saw the beak of a turtle pop up briefly, but we had a delicious lunch and a great time with the foam party. Loved the pirate ship and having photos with the parrot. Very friendly crew picked us up directly from our hotel. Plenty of swimming and snorkelling stops too. Thank you :)

It was a really nice tour. From picking us up to driving home, everything worked wonderfully. We saw turtles and dolphins. The swimming breaks were in really beautiful places. You can take photos with the parrot Coco. A picture 3 € the picture on a beautiful glass plate 10 €. Definitely a very nice keepsake. We would definitely do the tour again. The crew was really great too. The food tasted good and was plentiful. Drinks at reasonable prices. Only to recommend.

The boat trip was super great crew with good humor. However, the bus driver was very unfriendly, stressed and only busy with your cell phone. We had booked for Monday after pick up time 1 hour later I found out that we would no longer be picked up Appointment for Tuesday worked out great
