Side Travel Guide
Boat trips along the Manavgat River can be arranged either from Side or from Manavgat (on Rte. 400). Prices vary widely depending on the length of the trip and whether food is provided. You should definitely bargain. Times often change, but a boat also usually leaves each morning about 9 am for Alanya: check the evening before at the sales desk in the middle of the Side harborfront. Boats stop to let you swim, and some arrange for activities such as Jet Skiing, waterskiing, or parasailing; be warned, however, that not all operators are properly licensed or insured, and serious accidents have occurred.
