Those looking for fast-paced action will want to have a go at some of the motorised water sports on offer in Fethiye. There are lots to choose from, including holiday favourites such as banana boats and ringos, and high-octane thrills from water-skiing, jet-skiing, wake-boarding, sky-skiing and even knee-boarding. Parascending over the nearby mountains towards the ocean is also a fabulous way to see the amazing views around this lovely seaside town.

If you feel like leaving the comfort of your yacht to get closer to the water, sea kayaking is a great way to explore the stunning coastline. Not only will you have fun but also you will see the cliffs and beaches from a totally different perspective. The Turquoise Coast is also an excellent location for snorkelling and scuba diving. There are numerous courses you can take, meaning that everyone from beginners to experienced divers can have a go. Whilst the sunken ruins at Kekova are protected to preserve them for future generations, the clear waters have much to discover. You are virtually guaranteed to see amphora and other interesting remains of the ancient civilisations that resided here.

From gentle boat excursions to fast, fun wake-boarding, there are a wealth of water sports to enjoy with sailing holidays in Turkey.
