Muğla,Dalyan is one of 15 Special Environment Protection Zones in Turkey. This area has a rich biodiversity and a sensitive ecosystem. With its 7 lakes connecting the sea naturally , its unique İztuzu beach; Caretta Carettas; Nile Turtles and Blue Crabs, Dalyan is a natural miracle. It is one of the most valuable assets of Turkey with its antique ruins such as rock tombs and Ancient city of Kaunos.
Thanks to Caretta Boats, Dalyan water will remain clean forever!
This unique feature of Dalyan is rewarded in the tourism as well. This area has been visited by about 1 million tourists in 2011, 75% of which are the foreigners. Most of the visitors that desire to view these unique beauties use tour boats in the channel. There are 491 registered diesel-fueled tour boats in the channel and about 600 boats take a cruise per day in the summer time. A means of livelihood for the local people as well, these boat tours should be conducted without giving damage to the fragile ecologic balance and natural beauty of the environment and it is inevitable for a sustainable local tourism in Dalyan. Although considerable joint operations have been performed by the Ministry of Environment and Urban Planning, Local Municipality, Boat Cooperative and the owners of private boats, a project has been developed as intended to be a radical solution to keep Dalyan water completely clean and free of engine noise: Blue Sea Free Caretta project.
After 4 years of dedicated R&D studies, environment friendly boats are enhanced with special batteries that are produced by İnci Akü, technology sponsor of the project and advanced engines. Developed with the expectations and demands of the boat operators, Caretta Boats are now sailing in the delta of Dalyan.
Caretta Boats do not cause exhaust gas or any other emission and bilge leakage. Moreover, they are much more quiet…
