Oludeniz Boat Trip is a 7-hour cruise to visit Butterfly Valley and explore the beautiful turquoise waters of the Mediterranean.
What better place to play being a pirate for the day than the Oludeniz Coast, near Fethiye in Turkey?
With a backdrop of the beautiful white sands of Oludeniz and its blue lagoon, all beneath the distant form of the Babadag mountain. This scenario is the backdrop to the start of your pirate boat tour.
With boarding from Oludeniz beach and a cruise of the islands between Fethiye and Oludeniz, from the moment you board, you become a pirate for the day.
Your captain will welcome you aboard for an adventure of discovery and games. For young and old alike, this is your chance to enjoy the fantasy of travelling the high seas and visiting those inlets and coves where treasure may be lurking.
With seating and tables on the downstairs deck, sunbathing, and games on the upper decks, there is something for everyone of every age aboard the pirate boat! With no overly loud music to deafen you and spoil the ambience, the pirate boat is also a great way to relax and enjoy the party.

Your pirate boat is waiting at the beach for the adventure to start. The captain will greet you on board and introduce you to the amenities and crew.
There are changing rooms, WCs and showers on board, and a deck full of sunbeds for sunbathing. The lower deck is shaded and has a restaurant where your BBQ lunch will be served.
There will be around three swim stops throughout the day. The first swim break is at St Nicholas Island. The venerated Saint (Santa Claus) himself is said to have served the Church on this island in the 4th century. So going ashore here, you will be able to see the ancient Churches and maybe even walk in the footsteps of the only original Father Christmas himself.
After discovering the byzantine ruins of St. Nicholas island, you board the ship for a pirate lunch and maybe a rest before your next leg of the adventure.
A visit to the Butterfly Valley nature reserve will also make you feel as though you have discovered treasure, with, if you are lucky, a chance to see the Tiger Butterflies so prevalent in this area.
With fantastic swim and island stops, the fun and games begin on board. The boat crew will be happy to embroil you in their pirate games, with prizes and laughter for the whole family to enjoy,
After the Butterfly Valley visitation, you will have two more swim breaks in the Aquarium Bay and next to the Blue Cave.
As the sun sets, you will return to Oludeniz Beach and the golden sands.
