Many visitors to Istanbul are astounded by the fast-paced life in the city. Those who are worn out from sightseeing often wonder where they can go in the city for a chance to relax, and one potential solution may be taking a day trip to visit Prince Islands! The Prince Islands are an archipelago of small islands, which lies just off of the coast of Istanbul, and offer tourists a peaceful alternative to the daily hustle and bustle of the city. None of islands are open to automated traffic (visitors can get about by horse and cart or by bike if they do not want to walk) so the peace and tranquillity of the islands is rarely shattered by engines or horns, and the air quality is much better than in some areas of Istanbul.
Visitors to the island are able to see a rich multicultural tapestry, as large Victorian style mansions sit next to Greek style buildings. The inhabited islands are well worth a visit, but the smaller uninhabited islands are a peaceful treat as well. The only ways to reach the beautiful Prince Islands are by an overcrowded ferry or tour boat, or alternatively by a privately hired yacht. Journey time from the mainland can take between 45 minutes and an hour and a half, depending on departure point and the speed of the boat; however, it is well worth making the trip. Travelling on a tour boat will allow you access to the four main islands, but you will be on a tight schedule and may be forced to rush from place to place. However, visitors who opt to go on a private Prince Island cruise with Su Yacht will have more time to explore all the islands at their own pace.
The shortest Prince Islands Cruise which is offered by Su Yacht lasts about 8 hours, setting off in the morning so as to make the most of the quieter periods and the tranquil waters around the island. However, it is possible to choose from a range of different morning start times for your Prince Islands cruise, in order to find one which suits your needs. In many cases, it is possible to extend the length of the cruise for a small fee in order to make the trip longer.
The Prince Islands cruise yacht can take up to twelve guests on each Prince Islands cruise, but is perfect for smaller family groupings who want to enjoy a day out by themselves. As well as offering those on board the opportunity to visit the main islands, the private yacht will also be able to take you to visit secluded beaches and coves which may otherwise remain unseen by visitors to the island. The helpful crew are able to take you to all the best swimming spots around the islands, and will wait for you whilst you enjoy the waters with your family and friends. There is a shower on board so that you can even rinse off after a swim.
Choosing to book a Prince Islands Cruise is the best way to see more of the islands than ever before, so book your Prince Islands cruise today!
