Bodrum boat trip is a 7-hour lazy day cruise to swim, snorkel in the beautiful bays of the Aegean Sea and sunbathe on the deck.
For the best tan and perhaps the most relaxing choice of tours, take the boat trip out of Bodrum harbour, to cruise the emerald waters of the Aegean sea for the day. The boat is fitted for your comfort and relaxation with easy access on and off, for sea swimming or just simply tan topping.
From the moment you step aboard you can sense the visual treats in store for you from this stunning coastline. This is more than your average boat ride with so many exciting stops and plaes of interest to see along the way. You are sure to be amazed by the delicate islands that dot the Aegean coast.
Black Island is a must see spot on this tour with its thermal springs that have been heated deep in the Earth. The waters have a high mineral content and are said to have healing properties, so why not take a dip and find some relief?
All in all you will have a fabulous day out, relaxing and exploring from your boat.

You will be picked up from your Bodrum hotel by air conditioned, comfortable transport and taken down to the harbour where your boat and Captain are waiting to welcome you aboard. When everyone has arrived and anchors are raised you begin your gentle Aegean cruise for the day.
You will make several stops for swimming, snorkelling or sight seeing with your first stop of ‘Kara Ada’. In English it is known as Black Island, famed for its thermal springs and being the largest island off the coast of Bodrum. For a small fee you can swim in the thermal waters, said to have healing properties. At around 32 degrees centigrade the water is warmer than the sea. The spa waters are made up of Sulphur, Calcium and Magnesium, each having properties to assist in skin or breathing conditions.
After you have stopped to enjoy Black Island, a lunch will be served on board the sun deck of your boat. Lunch is usually grilled chicken, salad and pasta, served with the delicious fresh bread of the area.
After lunch you head to Rabbit Island, for swimming and snorkelling, and usually a glimpse of a rabbit or two. They are normally fed the scraps from the buffet lunch and are conditioned to seeing the tour boats arrive with their afternoon meal. Many of them head for the beach when they see the boats for this reason and it can be magical to watch the rocks suddenly come alive with the hungry rabbits of every shade and size.
Your last stop of the day will be Camel Beach. Where, you guessed it, you will be able to take a camel ride, for a small fee of course.
As the afternoon has passed so quickly it will soon be time to head back to Bodrum and to your transport waiting to take you back to your hotel in the resort, relaxed and happy with the gentle sway of the boat lulling you into an easy sleep once you get back.

This excursion is ideal for families with young children or groups of friends who want to get away from it all for the day. With island visits and swimming off the boat, children of most ages enjoy this day out. Normally the boat will have snorkelling equipment and or spagetti floats for those who are not so comfortable in the water. Feel free to bring your own with you if you so wish and just a gentle reminder, children should not be left unsupervised on any boat.
Bring your swimsuit and towel, sunglasses and sun cream. There will be WCs on board the boat whereby you can wash or change.
Bring money with you for those optional extras such as the Spa on Black Island or a camel ride at the end of the day.
There will be a fully stocked bar on board for those drinks extra to your ticket inclusion.
Wear shoes that you can easily walk in for the island visits.
Last but not least, if you choose to bring a camera make sure it is contained in a waterproof bag. Always a good idea to bring one with you, with so many sight seeing opportunities together with that amazing coastline.
