Beforelunch boat cruises start and finish in Fethiye, and the cruise moves all around the islands of Gocek. The itinerary outlines the main sights you will see on your cruise. All are at your captains discretion, weather and time permitting. The itineraries are not fixed on a specific daily basis because you will be taken to the places listed when the time or weather is best.
Some companies do trips to Marmaris and Olympos, but these are too long, too far motoring, and seen as a taxi service, rather than a relaxing boat cruise. Hence, Beforelunch is making this cruise with less motoring and more time for sightseeing, walking, and enjoying the untouched beauty of the islands. Some areas that you will go to are only known by the captains. The ideal start and finish of the cruise is before lunch on the first and last day at approximately 10:30 a.m.
The yoga classes will be held daily, every morning and evening. However, on the departure day, yoga class will be only in the evening, and on the returning day only in the morning. The captain also conducts an optional but free diving course every day in the crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea. Silent meditations can be held on the mountain tops, overlooking the Aegean Sea as well.
On some days throughout the retreat, you will be visiting and taking walks to some mountains and ancient ruins.
