Introducing Medusa Su...

Our new and exclusive cruising concept designed to provide a personalised service for luxurious days and evenings at sea.
  • Escape to the high seas for a long, lazy day onboard our exclusive Medusa Su, meandering along the pristine Lycian Coast for a day we repeatedly hear is often the absolute highlight of our guests holiday.

    A long lazy day can be spent admiring the stunning coast-line whilst luxuriating in the comfort and enjoying a personalised service not generally available on more basic day trip boats. 

    During the course of the day Medusa Su slowly explores a few of the local bays, with much of the day spent swimming and lazily enjoying the excellent lunch and afternoon tea (more of which below). The itinerary has been created to to explore a little further afield than is the norm in the region and It’s a wonderful way to see the stunning coastline and explore a few of the local bays.  

    Although licenced for 12, to ensure there is considerable space to relax in absolute comfort - in differing areas of the vessel - we restrict the number of guests onboard to just 6 for communal days and 10 for private charters.

    A magical experience and one often enjoyed by guests several times during their stay.

  • Food and Drink

    Lunch and afternoon tea are served onboard by the welcoming crew. The cuisine is an important part of Medusa Su's story and is prepared in the kitchens of the latest addition to Kalkan's culinary scene - 'Kaftan' - under the guidance of the exciting Head Chef Müdahir.  Müdahir and his partner Ezgi, learned their trade under some of Istanbul's finest and have recently moved to Kalkan to setup 'Kaftan', located in the beautiful waterside setting of The Bay in Kalkan.

    Guests are welcomed aboard with a refreshing drink, water is served throughout the day and lunch is accompanied by a glass or two of wine, beer or a soft drink. 

    Additional drinks can be purchased as required throughout the day.
