Bosphorus and Black Sea Cruise

Travel to Kabatas Pier at 1 pm and embark on a comfortable cruise on a luxury yacht that will drift along the Bosphorus Strait. Over the course of several hours, enjoy gorgeous views as we sail the waters of the Marmara Sea.

To start the cruise off with a bang, we'll welcome you with a refreshing cocktail served on board, accompanied by fried rolls with cheese and different snacks. Meanwhile, we'll sail across the Bosphorus Strait, admiring fantastic views of castles, palaces, ancient mansions and the different minarets in the city that can be seen from the water. 

Throughout the cruise, the guide on board will tell you some of the most amazing stories of the Turkish monuments we'll see. At 1 pm, a delicious meal will be served on board, consisting of hot and cold starters, a main course (choice of grilled meat or fish), fruit, a drink and a Turkish tea. Bon appetit!

With your appetite satisfied, relax on the open-top deck and revel in the incredible views of Rumeli Hisarı, a historic fortress, Galata Tower and the Bosphorus Bridge, among other iconic sights in Istanbul.

When the cruise reaches the Black Sea at the third bridge of the Bosphorus Strait, it'll be time to drop anchor and stroll around the small coastal town of Anadolu Kavaği. Here you'll have the chance to wander through the lush surrounding hills or see the ruins of a medieval fortress - a unique experience you don't want to miss!

After an exciting day of cruising between two continents, we'll return to the starting point in Istanbul, arriving around 5:30 pm.

What if there's bad weather?

The cruise may be canceled for safety reasons if it is very foggy, or if the government has stopped marine traffic. In these cases, we'll propose an alternative date to do the activity.
