About this activity
Begin your experience with a pickup from your centrally located Ovacik and Hisaronu hotel and travel by air-conditioned minivan to the departure pier in Ölüdeniz.

On arrival, board your comfortable boat and settle on deck as you head out to sea. Sit back and admire the breathtaking views as you pass the mountains and bays that fringe Ölüdeniz' spectacular shores. Revel in the sea breezes and perhaps hone your tan as you sail.

Drop anchor at the Blue Cave, a natural rock grotto known for its bright blue waters. Grab the chance for a swim and then hop back on board to continue to Butterfly Valley.

Take in the sight of the steep canyon as you approach and go ashore to enjoy around two hours of free time to explore or relax as you wish. Sunbathe or swim from the beach or follow the trail into the gorge.

As you walk, watch for the bright-colored butterflies that lend the valley its name — with luck, you might spot a rare tiger butterfly. If you’re feeling energetic, trek further up into the gorge to see the waterfalls at the head of the valley.

Return to your boat and enjoy a tasty included lunch of grilled fish and chicken with rice and salad, washed down with drinks (own expense).

After lunch, visit St Nicholas Island, a rocky islet topped by the ruins of 4th-century churches. Disembark and spend some free time here, perhaps climbing the hill to see the relics and absorb the panoramic views.

Reconvene back on the boat and continue to Cold Spring Bay, where cold fresh water springs flow into the sea. Cool off with a swim in the refreshing crystal waters before cruising back to Ölüdeniz. Your trip then ends with a hotel drop-off in hotel.

We had a blast on this day trip. Was given ample time at all locations and had a blast. Butterfly Valley was amazing. The boat itself was clean and well maintained. They had swimming accessories available for purchase at very fair prices. Food was delicious (sit towards the front so you get your food earlier). My only suggestion would be that the soft drink served during lunch be complimentary. I would totally book this tour again and highly recommend it to everyone.

Had to pay to enter both butterfly valley and st. Nicholas island. Lunch was ok but not very good. The boat takes you to beautiful beaches though. Overall good boat ride.

We were picked up at our hotel which we greatly appreciated but the drive to the boat was horrendous. An hour long, filled with speeding and slamming on the breaks in while driving down crowded roads and through the mountains. I became very motion sick, and ended up having to skip the actual boat ride. My recommendation is to schedule alternate transportation! The cruise sounds like it would have been amazing.
