The Olive Lounge is, together with the Lemon lounge, famous for being the one and only real lounge boats in Dalyan. Olive is designed and build to offer her guests the most comfortable and relaxing day out on the water possible. Lemon also has all the mod cons you could wish for, such as a toilet (even more fancy than before!) and a fresh water shower.Let us treat you to some authentic Turkish cuisine, lounge music, mouth watering drinks and of course great service, and enjoy a boat trip you'll never forget! Our top deck has plenty of sunbathing space for those who wish to top up their tan, and our lower deck is completely shaded for those who choose to stay cool.Free WiFi available on board during our tours.

It was a celebration day for a 25th wedding anniversary so we had provided our own music which certainly helped . We ended the day like a scene from Mama Mia dancing on the rooves as we came back into dalyan. We... More

I'm only now able to catch up on writing my reviews for 2015. We regularly stay in Dalyan but haven't done an evening boat trip before. As a result of advice and recommendations from people we know there we decided to book on the Olive Lounge. It took us a couple of tries before we could do the trip as... More

We took a sunset cruise on this boat, which involved cruising up the lake, stopping for a swim, a bbq, then expeiencing the mud baths, if you wanted to, and finally sailed back to Dalyan, under the stars. It was magic.

Went on both boats last year and can't wait to go again. Booking is easy and boats not overcrowded. Food cooked onboard is as good as any restaurant and plenty of food for all, fish available if you don't want meat and lots of vegetarian choices. Staff very friendly and respectful.

We went on the Olive Lounge on the last day of our holiday and it made a fitting end to a wonderful trip to Dalyan. We hired the whole boat as we found that was the only way to do it with the 4 young children we had with us. Instead of starting at 10am as most trips do we... More

Olive lounge and Lemon lounge are both run by Alper and are the most comfortable boats in Dalyan. Alper is a fantastic captain and host. The food is superb and, as always, it is the best day of the holiday.
