SUNDAY: Bodrum or Marmaris
You can choose to arrive in Bodrum or Marmaris.
Both towns offer a huge range of activities, shopping, parties, and endless historical sites. Both towns are an absolute must visit that have gorgeous castles overlooking them. No matter what you choose as your starting point you are guaranteed to have an amazing cruise experience.
Once you arrive at Knidos it is just incredible to stand and imagine the way this city must have been like 5000 years ago. This was also one of the most important ports in the region, full of history and culture. A most impressive and vast Greek archeological sites are located here with simply stunning views worth of seeing. Knidos is the point which separates the Aegean from the Mediterranean coast of Turkey and where two oceans collide.
On this day you will sail to Datca and arrive at the charming harbor where you can walk around and explore. Datca is a small harbor town dating back to Dorian times and is the nearest place to the ancient city of Knidos. We recommend you to visit plenty of waterside restaurants or swimming beach area with some really good views. Spending day on a beach with your favorite book is one of the ways to fully relax. There are also several nice local shops there and it is generally a great spot for people that like to go out of the gulet to enjoy smaller, quieter towns. Town of Datca still carries its identity as a peaceful historic town and any developments are carefully monitored by the local authorities and as a result, much of the peninsula retains its natural charm.
WEDNESDAY: Hisaronu Gulf
The Gulf of Hisaronu is full of amazing bays and picturesque locations, perfect for swimming, snorkeling and enjoying all the beauty that nature has to offer. This place is your perfect holiday getaway away from heavy crowds and busy streets of the town. This day will be full of activities but there will also be time for you to unwind and relax.
THURSDAY: Orhaniye & Selimiye
If you’re in search of “real” Turkey then Selimiye is the place to come. It has a laid-back family atmosphere and it is a completely unspoiled area. This is the perfect time to jump into the blues of the crystal clear sea and take a swim. Also for those who want to stay active during the cruise, you can enjoy some watersports. Even though this area is not crowded with tourist there is still a surprisingly wide choice of cafés and restaurants there – but life is calm and easy. The final destination is Selimiye village where you will be served with for the dinner. When dinner ends, if you feel like you could snack on something more we highly recommend strolling down rustic streets and find nice purple sweet figs that are too tempting to resist.
FRIDAY: Bozburun and Turunc
Your Captain will lead you to Bozburun, a small seaside fishing town that use to be popular for sponge-diving.
Both Bozburun and Turunc are small villages with lots of fishing boats, some restaurants and generally, are great places to visit, take a walk and enjoy pristine Turkey.
In Turunc it is possible to walk from one end of the village to the other in about half an hour, while in Bozburun you can see how they build the gulets – which is an adventure on its own.
