Daily Excursion: Learn to sail or just cruise for the day

We recommend you try this activity for the day, if you want to soak up the sun and be one with the turquoise sea, learn the basics of sailing while discovering pristine coves.

We leave the hotel dock at 11:00 am and go out to the inlet of Selimiye with the engine power. As soon as we exit the inlet into Hisarönü Bay, we shut the engine down and unfurl our sails. We enjoy the sea and the sun, the untouched nature that surrounds us accompanied by the sound of waves only.

Sailing all day long, we learn about the basic principals, maritime terms and we navigate the boat sitting at the helm. After a quick lunch and some swimming time, we set sail again and continue to have hands on experience. We stop for the last swim of the day before returning to Vira Demir’s dock at 5:00 pm.

Some of the recommended inlets, that you may pick from, to visit are: Sığliman, Bencik Inlet, Dirsekbükü, Kocabahçe, Kuzbükü, Kurucaada, Kamelya Island, Orhaniye, Kocaada.

The Aegean coastline is an ideal route for your longer holidays as well with its history, beaches and natural beauties. Untouched inlets, protected historic ruins, dainty villages with their unique architectural styles are just some of the things you will come across during this voyage.


All effects of the long winter past, will fade away when you wake up in the morning and jump in the sea to wash your face. If you haven’t had the chance to be on an onboard holiday before, the tranquility of the Aegean coastline will mesmerize you and you will not want the journey to end.

For our guests who have never been on a sailing vacation, we recommend that you plan to stay in our comfortable hotel rooms for a few nights while reserving at least two nights for this special boat trip. This way you will be able to enjoy the sun and the sea in the privacy of your own boat, as well as gain practice in how to sail. Captain of our boat will be more than happy to pass along his personal experiences to you.
