Istanbul Bosphorus Cruise
For those that have been to Istanbul. Is it pretty easy to do a cruise of the Bosphorus without booking a ship's excursion? I'm getting the impression they're plentiful.

Hi there

I did one last year -let me check my notes - I am sure I will still have the ferry schedule/map. Lots and lots to choose from :)

Catches the worm :) ; I was woken up by daylight at 0230 :)


ok I was there in Oct - so Winter schedule applied.

25TL was the price.

This is for a full Bosphorus Cruise - you can of course get off at an intermediate stop.

Dep Eminonu at 1035
Arr A. Kavagi 12.10
Dep A.Kavagi 15.00
Arr Eminonu 16.35

There are more frequent sailings in the summer and there is one additional sailing in the winter.

Let me know if I can give you more info.


There was one additional sailing in the winter starting at Eminonu at 1355 returning there at 1835.

Just returned from Istanbul and yes there are plenty of cruises available on the Bosphorous. It seemed like most were docked near the Istanbul University. The link someone posted is no longer available.
