Earliest time for crossing the river?

Does anyone know what time the boats start crossing over on a morning or what time the Kaunos archaeological site opens?

Seeing as nobody else has reponded, I will provide some vague and only slightly helpful info!

I seem to recall Kaunos opens at 8.30 but I'm not certain.

Local people use the row boats to cross the river for work, school and shopping. I don't recall if they have a starting time but it wouldn't suprise me if you could get across from 8, probably earlier. They are basically on demand anyway - if there isn't a boat there, look across the other side of the river and wave your arms around. Someone will row over.

Well it won't be me rowing over. The only time I've ever seen the sun rise in Dalyan was when I just got back from an Ibo midnight cruise. I think that was when I was pushed through the wrong gate an fell in some ones damn pool.

That wasn't really helpful was it! That's why I didn't answer...sorry.

I thought it opened at 9.....we normally get rowing boat over at 8ish, but as Tidus said probably earlier. I though one of the ladies lived in that house at the end ? ....there's normally someone hanging out that window. Look out for a dumpy, well rounded chap normally in jogging bottoms with like a messenger bag......if you spot him he'll shout orders to them......he like's a good shot that one ;)

... and his name is Dada. He rows you half way across the river, points to the tip box and downs oars until you cough up lol! :-)

Think that's DADA, Lara.

He doesn't speak any English.

If he rows you across, he keeps pointing at his TIP box and smiling.

BSF,

You can't avoid him if you want to get across. Just hope that you get a lady rower. If little Dada is rowing...then you are probably sunk!!!

Cheers, Mx.
