If your idea of a romantic day is sailing the beautiful azure bays of Fethiye and Oludeniz, then look no further. The bays are home to twelve small islands, giving the tour its name, each with its own individuality, detailed and different. The boat will leave from Fethiye harbour and gently cruise the bay area interspersing its way through the beautifully laid out islands.
The vista may be reminiscent of a scene from Peter Pan, with its different hues of blue and green for the eyes to feast upon. Your boat will have ample sun beds for you to relax and enjoy the tanning experience. Even if scenery is not your thing, most people cannot take their eyes off the glorious bay of Fethiye as they cruise beneath the bluest of skies on the dark blue waters of the Mediterranean.
Your boat will be of a traditional wooden build, made to easily travel through the water. Comfortable and clean, with changing room, showers and WC for your convenience and a sun deck with soft mattresses for sunbathing. You will drop anchor a few times throughout the day, for swimming and snorkelling, or perhaps even to swim to shore and enjoy those distant beaches that only the boat tour can offer you.
The quiet ambience of the boat will lull you into a relaxed state. No loud music just a gentle background and with the overall sounds of the waves as you cut through to your next swim stop.

Your gentle cruise will take you to several islands, some (Flat Island) where you will be able to go ashore and walk a little to regain your land legs. Other islands that you may visit are Cleopatra’s Island or Rabbit Island. When you have built up a suitable appetite, you will be enticed by the smell of the BBQ, cooked on board for your delight.

All the family will most definitely have a fabulous day out. With spaghetti floats and fishing lines for you to use, all ages can enjoy this day travelling the 12 islands. Your boat will have ample sun beds for distancing and there will be no loud dance music played on board. The waters are generally safe for swimming, however we recommend that children should not be left alone in the water, not even the more shallow water. Younger children particularly enjoy Rabbit Island. Inhabited only by wild rabbits, they wait for the boat tours to come in and bring them leftovers from the boat lunches. To this end they appear when you appear, a delight for all the family to view from the boat.
Your pick up from the hotel in the Fethiye region (times will be issued with your ticket) and return to your original point of pick up at the end of your cruise. Of course your boat journey and BBQ lunch on board freshly cooked as well as the use of sun beds and fishing lines too! All tours are covered with full insurance.
Bring your swimsuit, towel, sun creams and sunglasses to maximise your tanning on board.
Do bring some money with you for any extras by way of drinks or refreshments you may wish to purchase. Also there may be a photographer close by throughout the day and you may wish to purchase any photographs or DVDs that have been taken of your fun day at sea.
Some of the islands will have watersports such as Jet Skis, Banana Boats or Ringos, these are payable to the company on site.
