"Adalar Port" in Bostanci

Adalar means islands. You can find ferries to Prince's Islands and Yalova from this port in Bostanci. Also there are island ferries from Kadikoy, Besiktas and Eminonu. But Bostanci is the nearest port to Prince Islands and to my home.

Seagull shadow

You have to walk a corridor covered by polycarbonate for reaching the ferry. The day we visited Islands was very sunny. So under the cladding, you can see seagulls. I think this is a funny view.

In the ferry

You can relax by watching the waves and bubbles. The salty wind smells good. Seagulls follow you.

It is a nice thing to live in Istanbul, having a chance to use the ferries for public transportation.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Very close to city and there isn't any motor vehicle.

    The seagull is hillarious! Only taken the seabus from Karaköy to Bostanci. Didn't see the 'shadow'seagulls. One day I will get over to one or more of the Prince Islands!
