This morning, we brought you an article abut the Çalış Boat Cooperative.
So now you know how things work, let’s have a look at a day out on a Çalış Boat in more detail.
A day on Aliş 1
A boat trip is one of the most sociable and relaxing ways to spend a day. There’s no denying the sense of tranquility you feel whilst cruising the bays and islands of stunning Fethiye Bay.
Aliş 1 is owned and run by Ali Tuğsat and his wife Ayşe, with help from crewman Hasan.
Cruising out of Çalış to the first stop
You can sunbathe, swim, snorkel, read a book or chat with friends …it’s entirely up to you.
Swimming and snorkeling
There are up to four stops giving you plenty of opportunity to enjoy a swim in the beautiful crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean.
Access to the water is via the ladder or gangplank. If you’re more daring, you can dive or jump from the boat always check with the Captain before jumping or diving from the boat)
There are noodle floats on board for those who aren’t confident in the water.
If you enjoy snorkeling, the clear blue waters are a delight. Swim at your leisure and enjoy the life below the surface. There is a limited amount of loan equipment on board however it is recommended that you take your own equipment if possible.
One of the highlights of the day is the delicious home cooked buffet lunch that includes garlic bread, a selection of meze and BBQ chicken and köfte (meatballs). The meze selection has plenty of options for vegetarians.
Fruit and cake time
In the afternoon, at the last stop, you will be served with fresh fruit and home made cake.
Please do not take food and drink with you. The boat offers a selection of hot and cold drinks and snacks available to purchase at reasonable prices.
All too soon it’s time to head back to Çalış.
We had a wonderful day and we hope you do too.
Çalış Boats cater for private groups or mixed groups. More details and pricing can be found in this morning’s article
A day out on a Çalış boat starts at around 9:30/10 am and gets back into Çalıs for around 5:30pm.
