Take a unique cruise along the Bosphorus Strait and gaze at the emblematic landmarks along the banks, including Galata Tower and the Bosphorus Bridge. When you get to the Black Sea, stop for a swim and enjoy an onboard lunch.

Bosphorus and Black Sea Cruise

Travel to Cibali Kadir Has Pier and embark on a comfortable cruise boat that will drift along the Bosphorus Strait all the way to the open waters of the Black Sea.

As you enjoy the beautiful views of the historical monuments on either side of the waterway, you’ll be served grilled chicken with typical Turkish meze accompanied by a variety of soft drinks (vegetarian menu is also available). With a full belly, 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, change into your bathing suit and as soon as the boat stops in a beautiful cove on the Asian side, you can jump into the clear water that separates Europe and Asia.

Next, you will disembark at Poyrazköy, a charming fishing village on the European side where you'll wander through its winding streets and have something to eat.

After a half-day boat cruise, you will return to Istanbul.

What if it's bad weather?

If it's not a nice enough day to take a dip, either due to the time of year or due to adverse weather conditions, we'll make an additional stop at Anadolu Kavaği or Poyrazköy

The cruise may be cancelled 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.
