Map of Cruise to Poyrazköy Black Sea


Northwards: Cruise the full Bosphorus to Black Sea Mouth at Poyrazköy with sightseeing or swimming & fishing opportunities.

Experience a leisurely cruise along the Bosphorus to the mouth of the Black Sea near Poyrazköy with small fishing villages and scenic stops along the way for some relaxing swimming and fishing stops, not to mention the chance to spot dolphins.

You’ll start by cruising past some of the most stunning waterfront palaces, bridges and mosques along European & Asian shores of the Bosphorus approaching the tranquil bays near Beykoz, which are ideal for a refreshing swim or to try your hand at reeling in a fish using our fishing rods and lines, (assistance provided from our crew if needed). Depending on the season and your luck you’ll have the possibility to catch Blue Fish, Bonito, Whiting, Sardines or Horse Mackerel.

Later you’ll have the chance to set foot ashore on the Asian Continent at the little fisherman village of Anadolu Kavagi if you wish. There you can enjoy a typical village lunch or visit the hill-top castle for panoramic views overlooking the Black Sea & Bosphorus. Alternatively we can offer a light lunch served on board for advance bookings.

Keeping your eyes peeled for dolphins, you’ll glide around the uninhabited headland dotted with little coves of wild flowers and forests towards the fishing village of Poyrazköy and the mouth of the Black Sea. Dolphins can often be seen leaping, playing and hunting here, especially during the summer fish migration. Enjoy the chance for more fishing or another refreshing swim in one of the secluded coves before returning to Istanbul, relaxed and refreshed.
