We have nicknamed our Lycia Tour as our ‘surf and turf ‘ tour because it is all about cruising and walking the Lycian Way and en route seeing all the attractions. The Lycian State was a federation established as the first democratic union known in history. The Lycian people managed to create a common culture and sustain it as they formed the nation as a league of various city states.
Today, we can still view the traces of their rich historical heritage across many parts of the Mediterranean region of Turkey. In particular you can take a close look at various ruins in the Kekova region such as the sunken city, ancient tombs, city walls and a Crusader Citadel during your Lycian yacht charter.
Do you want to know where the Lycian Way is? To find out the answer rent our yacht for the Lycia Tour.
Another point is that you are not obliged ed to stick to any particular schedule as your crewed yacht rental is private. Our yacht sails from the marina at the departure time convenient for you and our exciting voyage starts tracking our route.
