Aboard the yacht, you will be greeted by our friendly and professional crew. Overnight and dinner on board in the Port of Marmaris. In the evening you can visit the lively town of Marmaris and covered bazaar area just by the Port.
After breakfast, our first stop will be Arap Island. Time for swimming and snorkel. After lunch, cruise leisurely along the magnificent coastline, stopping to explore the Bozukkale Loryma, a natural harbour with the ruins of Loryma scattered about the bay. There are magnificent views to be seen on the hike up to the almost intact ancient castle. Plenty of time for snorkelling and swimming in the crystal-clear waters. Overnight in Bozukkale.
Travel on from Bozukkale Loryma further around the coast to the villages of Bozburun. This is where many of the traditional gulets, such as the one you are traveling on, are made. Bozburun was once also famous for its sponge diving. Explore and enjoy the villages at your leisure. Overnight at the bay nearby.
Cruise to Bencik – a lush, sheltered area that is surrounded by vast forests and greenery. There are wonderful photo opportunities here and plenty of time for swimming and relaxing. In the afternoon, travel on the Datça peninsula, where you will have the chance to wander around the quaint town of Datca, which remains relatively unspoiled. There are also the extensive ruins of Knidos on the windswept headland to be visited, a place untouched by modern civilisation. Overnight in Datca.
While you are having lunch, your Captain will finish the yacht clearances from the Harbor Master and Custom offices to leave for Symi. Symi is a very unspoilt Greek Island, charming with traditional houses painted in warm pastel colors and built amphitheatrically around the Port. Dinner and overnight in Symi.
After a late breakfast in the view of the idyllic fisherman port of Symi, we will cruise to Rhodes in the early afternoon. During the day, you may visit the Old Town center, the Castle and the windmills of Rhodes. Throw your heart and soul into the town’s nightlife at night.
