If it's a nice day and you've done some of the main sites and want a break, it is worth sitting and relaxing on the Bosphorous. I'd imagine if you had lots of time doing the hop on and off would be more worthwhile though decided to just do something different.
If you are pressed for time, stick to doing the main tourist sites because they are rightfully famous for a reason.

Bosphorus strait is one of a kind and beyond compare, the feeling of moving through the straight from Europe to Asia in few minutes is something unbelievable.

We took the cruise to see the interestng places along the shores of the Bosphorus. You can do the whole return trip which is 6 hours or do a 2-hour boat ride up to just before the third bridge and take the bus to come back to Istanbul.
