TOUR ITINERARY (Spoiler Alert)

Begin your adventure with a scenic paddle approximately 3km southward to the captivating Tersane Bay on Kekova Island. Immerse yourself in the pristine waters, enticing you for a refreshing swim.

Explore the underwater wonders and the ancient ruins of the Xera settlement, guided by insightful narratives from your knowledgeable guide, unraveling the rich history of the region.

Continuing our journey along the coastline of Kekova Island, we glide above the mesmerizing ruins of the Sunken City of Dolikhiste. After completing our sightseeing, we paddle across to the mainland.

Simena Village awaits as our midday retreat, offering a delightful lunch and opportunities for exploration. Wander through charming streets adorned with blossoming flowers and breathtaking vistas, capturing unforgettable moments and embracing relaxation.

Indulge in the renowned homemade ice cream, featuring unique flavors like Cactus Fruit or Tahini, available exclusively in the village's quaint cafes. Optionally, uncover the secrets of the village's Castle, boasting magnificent views (admission fee: 140 TL).

Following our leisurely lunch, we embark on the return journey in our kayaks, paddling back to our starting point at Uçağız Village.

Weather and time permitting, we may enjoy a final swim-stop halfway amidst ancient ruins, offering a perfect setting for cliff diving.

Support Boats: 

Sea kayakers can manage without support boats for carrying bags; they're redundant, unwieldy, and disrupt the tranquility of the experience. To me, it's akin to bringing a jeep on a hiking trip. Should the need for a boat arise, we can always summon one from nearby, although this hasn't been necessary thus far.
