The best night out we had this year (again) was the sunset cruise run by Carole and Tayfun Tours.
We were picked up from our hotel in Ovacik at 6pm and taken to Fethiye where we boarded a spacious and comfortable boat. We went out to one of the islands and dropped anchor there for the evening. The water was warm and some of us enjoyed a swim in the late evening sunshine before getting back on the boat to view the sunset. A good, freshly cooked dinner was then served followed by entertainment (a good singer) and a disco. The lighting on the boat was perfect for dancing the night away on deck and the atmosphere as the darkness decended and the moon came out was magical and very romantic. The sky was full of hundreds of stars and we even saw some shooting ones.
We returned to Fethiye at just after midnight for our return transfer to the hotel. All this for just £12 (plus reasonably priced drinks) was simply excellent value for money and we would highly recommend this experience. It was mostly adults and older teenagers on the boat and I wouldn't recommend taking young children.
The sunset cruise is not to be missed and can be booked at either of Carole and Tayfun Tours offices in Hisaronu or at the harbour in Fethiye.
Nuttynet - I'm sorry that your 22 year-old single daughter found it boring. Perhaps she may be lucky enough to go again one day with a partner when hopefully she'd find it very romantic.
We are off to Ovacik in September, so we've booked up a load of excursions and boat trips on-line. (including the sunset cruise)
My neighbour reckons they saved her a fortune, as they were also fed well, and entertained most days of their 2 week holiday.
Where in the U.K. could you get a lovely boat trip with a substantial meal and entertainment thrown in for just 12 quid each? It looks like they haven't bunged up the prices in a couple of years either. (judging by the first post) How rare is that???
We even got a cheap trip to Fethiye market -Kaya village with lunch thrown in for just 2 quid each. (promotion price for booking 2 trips or more). AND every trip includes pick up and return transfers too and from your hotel.
I will give my own verdict when we get back.
Good luck, and have a fab wedding and honeymoon!
We've just booked transfers from Dalaman to Ovacik with them and got a good price. Looking forward to the evening sunset cruise again. If you're going to Fethiye/Ovacik/Hisaronu/Olu Deniz region I'd recommend a look at their website and taking advantage of their special online offers.
See you on the sunset cruise Yorkshire Boy. (If you're there in September, between 11-25 that is)!!!
