1. Göcek: 12 Islands Boat Trip
Drive to Göcek Gulf by bus in the morning and take in the stunning views of the mountains, pine forests, and seascapes on the way. Arrive at the harbor in Göcek where you will board a boat and begin your day of cruising around the surrounding islands. First, visit Yassıca Island for a breakfast of delicious homemade pancakes called gözleme. Look out for the wild rabbits which hop around the area. Next, make a stop at Tersane Island, the biggest island in the region with an important history that dates back to the Ottoman Empire. Continue on to Bedri Rahmi bay where you can try to spot the big fish picture on a rock. Head back to the boat and continue your cruise. Enjoy a lunch of fried chicken, salad, and pasta served on board. Keep your eyes peeled for dolphins, flying fish, and other local wildlife as you sail. During the trip, you will have free time to swim, sunbathe, and see colorful fishes as you explore the underwater world with a snorkel. Stop at 3 more bays in the afternoon before returning to Sarigerme.
