Dalyan Tour from Marmaris – Dalyan Tour by Boat
Dalyan is found on the Dalyan river just inland from Turkey’s southwest coast. This beautiful and historic tourist destination is a must see for everyone. One can reach the idyllic destination by bus or by boat, and once there, can take full advantage of the environmentally protected area on the sunny and scenic Aegean coastline.
The two hour trip by water from Marmaris along Turkey’s magical Mediterranean coast will flit by, when one considers it includes a refreshing swim in the balmy Bay of Dolphins, followed by a delicious dinner served on board in the presence of Kings, who stare down at you from their ornate Lyceon tombs, hewn from the cliffs two and a half thousand years ago, on Dalyan’s beautiful west bank.
Once you have gorged yourself on deck and taken in some of the sites that Dalyan has to offer, you are then whisked away in the evening to experience one of nature’s most incredible creatures, the Caretta-Caretta or Loggerhead turtle, which is an endangered species. A 6km stretch of pure white beach sand offers a perfect estuarine habitat for the turtle which has existed for millions of years.
You have the opportunity of seeing this impressive sea creature relaxing and lying in the warm sands, sunning themselves in their heavenly habitat. The Iztuzu beach is home to a rehabilitation centre for these precious creatures. These turtles lay their eggs from July to late August and if you look closely, you may see the inverted baskets which scientists are using to attempt to protect the turtles’ clutches. Hopefully, while walking through these pristine, white, warm sands, you will also get to see blue crabs or one of the many other species that make this beautiful place their home.
Once you have taken in the wonders of these large marine creatures, you can explore the therapeutic Sultanje hot springs. Nature’s very own bubble baths are also found in this exciting destination. What a perfect way to top off this trip of a lifetime, by treating yourself to a mud bath which does wonders for your skin. Maybe you will even get to meet Sting, Dustin Hoffman or Diana Ross, who have been known to experience the same sensation when they too visit this amazing Turkish destination. A fun photo session, with or without a celebrity, while covered in mud, will put you in good spirits as you return to your ship.
A tour to Dalyan from Marmaris is a must. Not only does one get to bask in the sun with Loggerhead turtles and swim in the blue waters of the Aegean, but you get to take in the historic feel of the place. You get to make footprints in the beach sand where kings once walked and stare up at tombs hewn in rock. You get to relax and bathe in the blue water of the Aegean, rejuvenate your skin in the mineral rich mud baths and lie on you sun lounger after a dinner cruise knowing you could not be in a more perfect place.
