MARMARIS: Aboard the yacht, you will be greeted by our friendly and professional crew. Once everyone is onboard dinner is served. In the evening you can visit the lively town of Marmaris and covered bazaar area just by the Port.
ARAP ISLAND – BOZUKKALE: The boat leaves port after breakfast and a short briefing and sails to Arap Island, where lunch is served. Time for swimming and snorkel. After lunch we head for natural harbor Bozukkale, which is known as Loryma in ancient history. The historical city was the center of Rhodes Peraia in the 10. century B.C. and has a castle with 9 temples and parallel walls to each other. The name Bozukkale means ‘crooked castle’ and is given to the castle as its one side is missing. Because of its geographical situation and the narrowness of its ports’ entrance this port has been used by the Greek navy forces during Pelepones Sea Wars. Visiting the remains of the fortress, surfing, swimming and diving are all possible from Bozukkale. There are magnificent views to be seen on the hike up to the almost intact ancient castle. The evening meal and overnight stay at Bozukkale.
BOZBURUN: The boat departs for Bozburun Bay right after breakfast. Bozburun is a small fishing town and one of the leading wooden gulet-building towns in Turkey and worldwide. Bozburun was once also famous for its sponge diving. The people used to collect sponges but as they now consider it to be too dangerous, so now they work in boat building and they are famous for the yachts they have built. Till dinner time we will have enough time to explore the turquoise blue waters of this area. Dinner and overnight stay is either in Bozburun or a village nearby.
DATCA: Depart for Bencik Bay after breakfast. During the short stop here guests may go ashore and after a short hike view the spectacular panorama of Gokova Bay and Hisaronu Bay at the top. Plenty of time for snorkelling and swimming in the crystal-clear waters. After lunch we sail to Datca. Datca is a charming, small harbour town that dates back to the Dorian times and it is the nearest place to the ancient city of Knidos. Guests are free to partake in our half-day trip to Knidos. You can take a walk in the lovely port area during evening time. Enjoying the beautiful sunset, dinner and overnight take place in Datca.
DATCA – SYMI: After breakfast and once overseas travel formalities are complete, depart for Symi Island.
