Marmaris – Day trip to Turkey with Port Transfers: Boat trip (1 Hr) + Free time in Marmaris (7.5 Hrs)
A great chance to go to Turkey for a day and visit Marmaris – one of the most charming and scenic resorts on the southeast coast of Asia Minor. In just an hour of travel with Sea Dreams fast Catamaran you can wander through the welcoming port of Marmaris dotted with cozy cafes and restaurants, visit Marmaris castle and the Archaeology Museum to see antiquities, explore the old town of Marmaris with traditional homes and scenic backstreets, or go straight into the Bazaar to find the best bargains for clothes, jewelry, bags, shoes, sweets, spices… you name it! The trip requires your travel document (Passport or ID*) and booking arrangement in a timely manner. For customers who prefer traveling in organized groups, there is a possibility to join a complimentary informative tour.
Embark on a full-day trip to MARMARIS – one of Turkey’s most scenic and loveliest resorts! You will need your travel document (Passport or ID*) as Marmaris is in another country.
The city is situated in the southeast of Turkey, nestled in the South of the Gokova Golf on the Resadiye Peninsula. Marmaris shares borders with Datcha in the West (opposite to Symi island), Koycegiz in the East, and Ula in the Northwest. Together with surrounding villages, its population is 25,000 increasing four times during the tourism season.
Transfer to the port is provided by the boat company SEA DREAMS. An English-speaking tour escort will meet you at the port providing all the practical information for the day. At the port, you will CHECK-IN and make the payment of the port tax receiving a boarding card for your day visit to Marmaris. You will go through the Passport/ ID control both in Rhodes and Marmaris.
The sea crossing is on a comfortable, fast Catamaran. Upon arrival, you will be invited to join a free escorted Bus tour, offered by local Turkish Travel Agencies. It serves as a transfer to the center of Marmaris and includes two stops for shop presentations—either a gold factory, a carpet factory, or a Turkish delights factory. The tour is optional and complimentary.
After the tour, you will have plenty of free time to explore Marmaris on your own. The escort of the tour will provide a precise departure time and meeting point for the return transfer.
Travelers who wish to explore Marmaris independently, can easily reach the center of the town by foot (approx. 20 min walking distance) or get a local Taxi for a quick 5 min drive.
It is amazing to discover how from a little fishing and sponge diving town Marmaris has expanded into a vibrant and cosmopolitan tourist resort.
The most important landmarks or Marmaris are its scenic Port, the Castle with the Archaeology Museum, the Old Town, the Bazaar, the little Lighthouse, the Attaturk Statue, and the Palm-lined Riviera-style Promenade weaving along the resort.
Explore the sites, go for some shopping, stroll the promenade, check out the beach or the fortress!
And make sure to try local food and delicacies – the best way to experience the Eastern culture!
