Kas Kekova Antalya Route
The Mediterranean coastline between Kas and Antalya is more untouched and secluded than our other charter routes. The exquisite villages of Kekova, Olympos, Adrasan, Kemer, and Finike are among the destinations on this route.
Many boat charters are set up around the Bodrum, Marmaris and Fethiye regions and yet Kas has the clearest waters and most interesting coastline with rich sea life.
Our first destination is normally Uc Agiz Bay which is home to the oldest Lycian city, Teimiussa. After this is Kalekoy with the ancient ruins of Simena on its slopes including a 300-seat amphitheatre. Next is a visit to Finike Harbor, the town reknowned for it’s sweet, juicy oranges and then onto Ceneviz Bay, Kemer Ayisigi Bay, Calticak Bay and so the list goes on. It’s a magnificent trip.
Our yacht charters can be for one week or less. The itinerary shared with you consists of general information and it differs according to the length of your Antalya Kekova yacht charter. Another point is that you are not subjected to stick to any particular schedule as you rent our boat for your private trip.
