Demre – Kekova Tour Route

  • Demre (Andriake) Harbour

    Our Demre – Kekova boat trip can begin at a time that suits you, although we recommend 10 am so that we can fit in all of the amazing stops. The boat departs from Demre harbour and cruises towards your first stop, as the day’s early-morning sunrays start to illuminate the sea.

  • Kekova Island and Sunken City

    Discover the fascinating secrets of Kekova’s history on this unique adventure around the Sunken City. The ancient city of Dolchiste was flooded due to an earthquake in the 2nd century, and its resulting underwater ruins never fail to leave an impression. Since this is a protected area, swimming is not permitted here, so what better way to explore the site than by cruising alongside the ruins on our  glass-bottom boat, giving you the chance to capture unforgettable photos.

  • Aquarium Bay

    Soak up the sunshine at picture-perfect Aquarium Bay during a delightful swim break.

  • Simena Castle (Kaleköy)

    Our boat will drop anchor in Kaleköy port (ancient Simena) for one hour, giving you time to visit this small authentic village that’s home to castle ruins and a necropolis. A hike up the hillside will give you magnificent views of the Kekova region. If you’d prefer to admire Simena Castle from down below, you can use your remaining time to take another dip in the gorgeous blue waters.

  • Burç Bay

    Enjoy the peaceful ambiance of this area during a swim break in Burç Bay, where the water feels cooler due to cold underwater natural springs!

  • Gökkaya Bay

    We’ll stop to swim in Gökkaya Bay, where you can experience the natural beauty of the area and opt to participate in one of the various exciting water sports on offer.

  • Pirates Cave

    Discover this intriguing naturally-formed cave, which is renowned for its large size and curved entrance.

  • Demre (Andriake) Harbour

    As the day draws to an end, we’ll bring you back to Demre harbour, where this private boat trip finishes. Demre is a small but interesting town with plenty more to experience, such as historical sites, beaches, and hiking the Lycian Way.
