Why Do We Arrive In The Harbor The Night Before Disembarkation?
During the high season in Southern Turkey, the harbors are filled up most of the time from the night before you disembark. There is just not enough room for all boats to moor in the municipal ports. Therefore, boats will prefer to arrive to the harbor where you will be disembarking – the night before you leave the boat in order to secure a spot so that your departure is done in a timely manner.
Also, the boats need time to get the boat prepared and provisioned for the following tour (as they did for your trip). Hence leaving the arrival to the port to the next morning may cause a delay for your disembarkation and preparation of the boat. This has been known to delay 2 – 4 hours. However if you choose to arrive to the harbor during the early morning hours of day of disembarkation, the service tender can be provided to bring you and your guests to shore as well so that you do not have to wait and also allows the boat to begin cleaning up for their next group of guests.
