- The boat decks are perfect for sunbathing and jumping into the sea.
- The Turkish food onboard is excellent, with breakfast, lunch and dinner included!
- The perfect balance between relaxing, sightseeing and socialising. There is an onboard bar and opportunities to experience the nightlife at venues in Marmaris and Bodrum.
Sounds like the perfect trip?
Bodrum to Knidos
We board our gulet around 10.30am for welcome speeches and an introduction to Captain and crew, depart Bodrum harbour around 11.00am bound for Knidos.
Here we have our first chance to dive in, have a swim, tuck into lunch and enjoy our first sail sunset with a cold drink in hand. Even though it is still under excavation, this ancient city has some impressive ruins to visit and the short climb up to the top of the hill to see the city’s two ancient, back-to-back harbours from above is well worth it!
Overnight – Knidos
Knidos to Datca
This morning after breakfast we cruise onto Palamatbuku – a great swim-stop spot. We head over to Datca afterwards for lunch and dock into the harbour. We can take taxis from the harbour to Datca old town if desired (about 8km), where there is a fascinating old village, ancient temples and other sites to explore. We will have time to wander around the town, pick up some bargains, sample the cafes and visit the local sites. Once back on board around we will have dinner in a bay nearby.
Overnight – near Datca
Datca to Bozukkale
Today is all about the swimming in the amazing bays between Datca and Bozukkale. As we approach Bozukkale, there is the opportunity to climb up the peninsula’s ancient citadel for some impressive views.
Overnight – Bozukkale
Bozukkale to Marmaris
After breakfast we head to Kadirga for swim-stops and lunch, and then Marmaris, one of the biggest harbours in Turkey. We anchor down at the harbourside in the afternoon and it’s time to check out and say goodbye to your crew and shipmates!
You have plenty of options for this last day – you can head to Dalaman airport if you have a flight to Istanbul or international destination, or stay a night or two in Marmaris.
