In the morning, you will cruise to the Batik Hamam (Sunken Bath) cove which has a Roman bath about 5 feet under water; this is the spot where, according to tradition, Mark Anthony wooed Cleopatra. From there, you will hike (8 km, 3 hours) towards the Lycian site of Lydae which is accessible only on foot, passing through pine forests and enjoying spectacular views of the Mediterranean. You will then return to the boat and anchor in Binlik Cove for the night.

In the morning, you will drive with a minibus to the now-deserted Greek town of Kaya, abandoned in the 1930s because of the population exchange treaty between Turkey and Greece. After exploring this ghost town, you will hike to the boat which will be waiting for you in the Soguksu Cove. In the evening, you will go for a short hike on the Gemiler Island to explore some Byzantine ruins and enjoy the sunset.

Hiking time: 1,5h (3,5 km) from Kaya to Soguksu Cove; 1h on the Gemiler Island.

Early in the morning, you will cruise to Kalkan and, after a morning swim, you will hop on a van to visit the highlights of Central Lycia: Patara and Xhanthos. Patara is the home of the Lycian Parliament House (used as an inspiration for the American Constitution) and the birthplace of St Nicholas. Xhantos is vast, impressive, and has the longest Lycian inscription ever found. You will end the day in Kas, a charming coastal village.

In the morning, you will cruise to the sunken ruins of Aperlai, over which you can snorkel, observing from above fragments of the ancient civilization.
Then, you will slowly cruise along the sunken island of Kekova and look at the 2000-years-old ruins submerged in the water. Later, you will find a quiet cove to anchor for the night.

In the morning, you will enjoy a kayaking adventure (4 hours), exploring the Kekova Sound, the sunken ruins of Kekova Island, and the shipyard cove, which is a unique experience. Later in the day, you will hike (1 hour total) to the remote and impressive Crusaders’ citadel of Simena. You will anchor near this ancient village for the night and enjoy a Farewell Dinner.

After breakfast, you will be transferred to the Dalaman airport for your flights back home.
