Full description
You will be collected from your hotel by bus. The boat's staff will meet you, ask you which lunch option you would prefer, and provide you with an order card. Then, the boat will debate from the Manavgat River. The multilingual guide will provide you with some general information about the tour program. As you set off, the dj will start to play and soon you will stop for the first swim break. Head to Manavgat Bosphorus, which has the sea on one side and the river on the other. Here, you can rent a Jet-Ski or taste a Gözleme (traditional Turkish food). As you swim, the crew will be grilling your lunch to be served on the boat. After enjoying lunch on board, you will head to Dolphin Island. Stop for a second swim break and then the foam party will start. Afterwards, the boat sails towards a third swim break spot, near Karaburun Bay. Keep an eye out for dolphins along the way.

We were picked up from the hotel on time. The bus was getting old and broke down. Thanks to Corona, there was enough space for everyone on the boat. Don't want to know how full it would be without corona. There were 112 instead of 240 people. The dolphin island is just called that, has nothing to do with dolphins. We did see turtles though. There were 4 swimming breaks and you could jump in a boat. The food was very tasty and sufficient, drink prices were also ok. We took drinks with us. Nobody said anything. On the boat you could take pictures with and without a parrot and buy them for 3 € / picture. Here, too, you can negotiate. ;) At the end there was a foam party with loud party music. There was make-up and dancing for children. The staff speaks German, Russian, Turkish and English.

The tour was good all round. It was a beautiful day. It started in the morning at the hotel. We were picked up by a bus where the window panes were missing. Just taking the bus over the Autobahn was a fun thing. It's a shame that I can't adjust or here. After about 45 minutes we went on a great wooden ship. Then down the river to the first stop. Here we had time for swimming and jet skiing. 10 minutes for 20, - was ok. That was a lot of fun. You could also drink freshly squeezed orange or pomegranate juice for 1.50 euros. Gozleme with cheese, jam or Nutella was available for 1 euro. Lunch was served on the ship towards the end of the break. Fish or chicken with Ebly u. Salad was delicious. Then the trip across the Mediterranean to the dolphin island. There we could bathe extensively and jump into the sea from Bort or swim to the island. Then the whole thing back including a foam party on the first deck. The nice thing was that our son (6 years) on the

Music was very good. We saw dolphins at sea, there and back. Lunch was not eaten on the sea, which was very positive because the ship hadn't rocked that much. Bathing areas were completely sufficient in terms of time. Found a bit of a little space on deck 3 to lie down.
