What should I bring for the trip?

Keep it simple. What we have experienced is whatever we packed we use only one pair of shorts and a couple t-shirts! We recommend you to bring  power banks to charge your phones because the energy is limited in the boat. Definitely bring sunscreen that does NOT contain trace oil and not in a spray bottle.  You may want to bring  a sweater just in case for chilly nights. 

Where do your trips depart from?

APPA is based out of Fethiye Ece Saray Marina and we usually start  sailing  from here, and head towards the Gocek bays. However, if you want to start your journey from a different location, it may be possible for us to set different routes according to our availability.

What if I get Motion Sickness? 

If you’re prone to motion sickness there are things you can buy and take ahead of time. We do carry a supply of things on the boat to help. Some find a quick sleep will help get things back in order, others feel better sitting on the topside looking at the horizon. We will also spend time on land as we visit various tasty restaurants and hiking locations.

Is sailing comfortable? 

Extremely! In fact once you try it you just might get hooked! We try very hard to make it very comfortable for you.

Pollution in the seas, food depletion, maritime traffic, underwater noise (especially the sudden sound produced during oil exploration activities), deliberate killing and their removal from their natural habitats to be used in dolphin captivity threaten the future of dolphins! As APPA, we will be adopting a symbolic dolphin for you by donating to WWF-Turkey (World Wildlife Fund) and support Dolphins, playful children of the seas...
