The Fethiye flotilla visits a number of bays blessed with nothing other than a restaurant. Many have their unique attractions. Tersane is renown for it’s ruins. Sarsala offers locally made pine honey.
At Tomb Bay you can walk up the hill to some ancient tombs. On your return you can relax with a massage or traditional Turkish shave on the beach.
Fethiye is much larger. It’s an interesting mix of the the ancient and modern. From the Lycian tombs cut in to the cliffs, through traditional Turkish baths to cartoonists on the seafront, there’s something for everyone. It’s an excellent place to pick up souvenirs for friends at home.

More About The Fethiye Flotilla
Embarkation is on Saturdays with the sailing starting next day. There’s a varied range of yachts on offer from 32 to 50 feet. These include a couple of catamarans. There’s a good supply of yachts but the newer ones tend to be in high demand. Book early if you want one of these.
The nearest airport is Dalaman. The transfer time to the base is around 45 minutes. The operator offers optional transfers.
My flotilla prices include the Transit Log, Comfort pack (including a starter pack of water, beer, soft drinks, crisps, tea & coffee, end cleaning, and bed linen), Flotilla Participation Fee, a comprehensive inventory including navigation equipment, and the services of the Lead Crew.
You can choose between lodging a traditional refundable type security deposit or paying an insurance waiver. Optional extras include outboard engine (included on catamarans), wi-fi, stand up paddle board and extra towels.
Some of the bays don’t have mains water or electricity. So later in the evening, when the generator is turned off, you may finish your meal by candlelight. You will sometimes need to shower on board due to limited water ashore.
The restaurants will provide you with fresh bread. For additional sustenance, a couple of the supermarkets now provide floating stores. These circulate around the bays so you can shop whilst at sea.
