In Fethiye at this time of year it is significantly cooler out on the water, due to the sea gentle breezes that develop near the land.

Which boat?

There are boats available to suit everyone; from small boats that take up to a maximum of six people to the bigger boats that take a hundred and more. You will see them lined up along the harbour in Fethiye and along the river in Çalış. You can book a boat for a private party or join a mixed group. There is something to please everyone.

Fethiye Times went along to spend a day on the Yaren-E, one of the daily trip boats that operates out of Çalış.

A wonderful day in pictures…

Staying hydrated is about more than just being on the water

When you swim, it can make you feel a bit more hydrated than you really are. Please remember, simply being exposed to water doesn’t hydrate you. You have to drink it too.

And last but definitely not least…

Keep protected

It is very important to protect your skin from the sun with a high factor, water-resistant sunscreen; especially when there is a cooling breeze. Just because you can’t feel the heat as much doesn’t mean it isn’t there.

When your skin feels hot it’s already burning!
