IDO Bosphorus Ferries

There are two IDO ferries ( Istanbul Sea Buses Tel. 0212 444 4436 www.ido.com.tr) that leave Eminonu at 10:35 and 13:15 every day and call at Besiktas , Kanlica , Yenikoy , Sariyer and Rumeli Kavagi before ending at Anadolu Kavagi . The ferry at 10:35 docks at Anadolu Kavagi at 12:05 and waits for three hours before returning to Eminonu at 15:00. The ferry at 13:15 arrives at Anadolu Kavagi at 15:00 and departs at 17:00. During summer months there is a noon departure from Eminonu that returns from Anadolu Kavagi at 16:15.

Private Boat Tours

In the busy summer months and at weekends there are private Bosphorus boat tours that leave from Eminonu and call at Besiktas , Kadikoy and Ortakoy . At the weekend the boats leave from Ortakoy every 20 minutes after 13:00 and on weekdays every hour; the tours usually take one hour and go as far as the first of second bridge on the Bosphorus .

Standard Istanbul Ferries

If your time is short you can take the “beggars cruise” (dilenci vapru) as in taking a ferry from one place to another and whatever your choice you will certainly experience the Bosphorus and its wonderful views and scenery. You can take an IDO ferry from any of its landing stages including Eminonu , Karakoy , Kadikoy and Besiktas , the tickets for these are very cheap and schedules change at weekends and in the winter.

Sea Taxis

This is another great way to get around the Bosphorus and you can make reservations for up to 10 people by calling Tel. 0212 444 4436 or for further information and fare prices go to www.deniztaksi.com.tr.

The 5-Star Bosphorus Boat Tour

In recent years there has been a bigger demand for private boat tours and as a result of this much more luxurious  boats are on offer. The Keyif Style is one such boat (Tel. 0212 277 4363 www.keyiforganizasyon.com) which boasts of visitors such as Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain, the Japanese Prince Naruhito Kotaishi and other important heads of state. The boat is often used as a wedding venue with the ceremony taking place at the mid way point where Asia meets Europe and usually one half of the couple is a foreigner.
