Sea Kayaking is one of the most exciting ways to explore the famous Kekova region of Turkey. Kekova is one of the most popular day trip destinations.
We will meet our office at 7:00 am then we take you to the Uçağiz Harbour (Themussa), which takes approx. 45 minutes drive. Our kayaking guide will give you safety briefing and short training session for the new kayakers and novices. Your guide will demonstrate how to get in and out and paddle and rudder usage, and of course, how to keep your balance!
You will then enter the water and start your first paddling session from Üçağiz to get accustomed to the kayak and practice proper navigation. This period takes the group to Kekova Island and is followed by a swimming break. From there the group will slowly paddle over the ancient Lycian Sunken City to get an unparalleled view of the ruins but also so as not to disturb them. From there, the group will set off for Shipyard Bay and then Simena Castle. After this route we will move on to Kaleköy for a break or to enjoy lunch.
On most excursions there is the option to walk up to the ruined castle and explore the extensive necropolis. In the afternoon we head back towards Üçağiz Harbour for an up close view of more impressive Lycian sarcophagi and then return to our kayak base. This is followed by our vehicle transfer home.
