Taking a tour boat from one coast of Turkey to another is awesome. At one point you'll be in two continents simultaneously, which is an added bonus to riding on the boat.

If you are visiting the gravesites in Gallipoli, you can easily take a ferry from Eceabat or Kilitbahir to Cannakale. It is a short 20-25 minute ride across this narrow channel. Taking the ferry is a great shortcut as you are traveling from one continent to another!
