The Ferry Boats that cruise through the waters around Istanbul are not only an efficient way to get around, but can also provide you with some of the best views of the city. There are several ferry points around the city, including ones on the European side in Karaköy, Eminönü, and Besiktas, and ones on the Asian side, including Kadiköy & Bostanci. There are ferries that can take you up the Bosphorus near the Black Sea, and others that can take you to the Princes' Islands in the Sea of Marmara. Ferries are actually the best way to take a trip over to the Asian side and check out some of the sights. And most ferry rides are fairly inexpensive, usually costing no more than a couple of U.S. dollars.
