SEAKAYAK

With its untouched beaches, unparalleled coves and forest spread along the shores Gokova Bay is one of the most fascinating places in Turkey for seakayak tours. While cruising with your own paddle movements, you cannot get enough of watching all the fish, dolphins, colourful waterfowles ve world-famous Mediteranean seals. Gokova Bay has a wide range of routes for enthusiasts and sports people of every level, and it provides a safe environment for the beginners with its sandy shores.

You can learn this sport with the help of our experienced and licensed guides and enjoy these fun trips yourselves. The two creeks in the bay, while making the tours more versatile, provides you with the opportunity of enjoying sea kayak in a totally different environment. You will be amazed and mesmerised with all the birds' singing, ducks and geese playing while paddling through the reeds.

Not only with its magnificient views but also with the abundance of its historical sites Gokova Bay will take you to a journey into the past and the past will revive before your eyes. Among many of such; here are a couple worth to mention: Gokova castle, rock tombs, underwater sites and of course the famous Cleopatra beach..
