Tour Summary

Join us for an unforgettable all-day excursion that includes two of our guests’ favorite activities - the interactive Dolphin Encounter at the Dolphin Center in Antalya followed by a trip out to the one-of-a-kind private beach hideaway known as Antalya. This combo package allows you to come face to face with the planet’s friendliest creature, the bottlenose dolphins, as well as spending a relaxing yet fun-filled day on one of Antalya’s most pristine beaches.

Start your day at the expertly designed Antalya Dolphin Center where you will meet with our team of professional dolphin trainers. They will give you a quick briefing on the lives and behavior of the dolphins and before you know it, you will be in sitting in a shallow water platform interacting with our dolphins. Watch as they do tricks right before your eyes. You will get to feel their smooth skin and hug and play with them.

After the dolphin interaction, it is time for the Antalya Beach Hideaway! You will jump on our boat to head to this tropical paradise where you will get to experience one of the most beautiful beaches anywhere in Antalya, as well as paddleboarding, kayaking, snorkeling, lunch, open bar, and much more! The moment you set foot on the Antalya beaches, you will understand exactly why this beach is rated one of the top beaches in Turkey time and time again!

 

Q: Where is Antalya?

Antalya is a private cove approximately 12 miles south of Antalya in the Bay of Banderas. You can only get there by sea as there are no roads in the last 3rd of the bay from Boca de Tomatlan to Yelapa.

Q: How do I get to Antalya?

The only way in and out is by boat, and because it is a private cove, the only boats allowed in are those owned by Antalya Adventures. This means that there are no street vendors or other tourists there, making it a true paradise hideaway. 

Q: What tours go to Antalya?

The day tour "Antalya" and the evening tour "Rhythms of the Night".

Q: Can I book both the day tour and Rhythms of the Night on the same day?

You could but you would have to come back to Antalya on the boat in between tours. Unfortunately we don't allow guests to stay at Caletas after the day tour has finished as the area must be cleaned and prepared for the evening show. 

Q: What activities are available at Antalya and how much do they cost?

The activities are only available during the day time tour and most are included in the price of your day:

  • Snorkeling
  • Kayaking
  • Stand-up Paddle Boarding
  • Kids Adventure Park and Zoo
  • Nature Trail
  • Parrot Encounter
  • Cooking lessons

Other activities cost extra:

  • Spa treatments - TL35 - TL70 USD
  • Clay Modeling - TL6 USD
  • Scuba Lessons - TL50 USD
  • Scuba Diving - TL50 USD

Q: How big is Antalya?

Caletas has approximately 3/4 mile of coastline and over 1,000 hectares of tropical forest. It has a pier, 4 beaches, a hill top spa, 4 dining areas and a 1.5 mile nature trail in the forest. There is also the open-air amphitheater tucked away in the forest with seating for 500 people.

Q: Drinks are included in the price - but does that mean everything?

Open bar includes bottled water, fruit juices, sodas, beer, Bacardi, tequila, Smirnoff vodka, margaritas and wine during your meal. You don't need to pay for any drinks. In the evenings, we also have a wine list so that you can choose a special bottle of wine to accompany your dinner with prices ranging from $25 USD and up per bottle. However, the table wine is free, so you don't have to pay extra for wine if you don't want to.

Q: I'm a vegetarian, will there be anything for me to eat?

Of course! Our buffet style lunch includes a large selection of salads, pasta and grilled vegetables, as well as seafood paella during the day and grilled fish at night. For carnivores there is also grilled chicken and steak or ribs. You can help yourselves as many times as you like and the food at Caletas really is delicious.

Q: Is Caletas wheelchair accessible?

Unfortunately not. The nature of the area means that there are a number of inclines and some steps. Caletas is a very natural place and most of the paths are sandy or with an uneven surface. Wheelchairs would not be able to get over to the beaches, spa or to the areas where we have activities. 

Q: It looks as though everything is included in the tour - what should I bring and are there any lockers to leave my gear?

Bring a towel, your swimming gear, sunscreen and a hat. You may want to bring some money to leave as tips for the crew or staff or if you want to take a massage. There is also a small gift shop at Caletas where you can buy waterproof cameras, t-shirts and things like that. There are lockers at Caletas so you can store your things safely while you go snorkeling or kayaking - you will need to leave an ID or hotel key as deposit for this.

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Dolphin Encounter & Antalya Beach Combo is one of my favorite trips! It includes everything that everyone should do here. As a Bahamas veteran, I can say only the best about this experience!

Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
