Istanbul Lunch Cruise on Bosphorus and Black Sea

Escape the hustle and bustle of Istanbul city center and enjoy a half-day lunch cruise of the Bosphorus Strait. Sail to the Black Sea to explore the town of Beykoz located on the Asian shore.

Climb aboard a pleasure boat and forget your worries as you enjoy a relaxing half-day cruise down the Bosphorus Strait. Marvel at the views of beautiful Ottoman-era mansions and the minarets of the city mosques as you sit down to a lunch of grilled chicken and typical meze dishes.

Go for a stroll on deck to soak up the sun and see the many famous sights that line both coastlines, such as Galata Tower and the immense Bosphorus Bridge that connects Asia and Europe. Sail to the Black Sea, and then make your way to the small coastal town Beykoz.

Drop anchor and enjoy a walk in the lush hills of the surrounding area. See the ruins of a medieval fortress and other landmarks before the cruise back to Istanbul in the late afternoon.
