Day 1

Bodrum - gulet. Welcome to your gulet, your home for the following 7 nights, please note that embarkation begins at 3:30pm. Bodrum is a popular resort town with both foreign tourists and Istanbul – based weekenders. It‘s appeal mostly lies in its as yet undiscovered beauty by the masses yet this is changing with wealthy yacht owners mooring here on the way to far flung places and more tourists coming due to other areas such as Marmaris and Kusadasi becoming overcrowded. There are many watersport activities to take part in or perhaps an exploration of the incredible Castle of St Peter, built in 1406 by the Knights of St John to replace the fortress at Smyrna that had been destroyed by the Mongols. The castle is now home to the Museum of Underwater Archaeology and is well worth the visit.
Overnight: Gulet (Bodrum)  |  Dinner

Day 2
Kos

Bodrum - Kos. Today we cruise to the Greek island of Kos. Kos is a beautiful island with 290km of beach and a rich history. 3.5km northwest of Kos Town is ancient Asclepion, which was the birthplace of Hippocrates, the 'Father of Medical Sciences.' Kos is the second largest island of the 12 islands (Dodecanese islands) and has a very mild climate and very fertile lands. Upon arrival, you're free to explore and perhaps take a quick swim in Lambi Beach which is very close to Kos Harbor. Kos has a very lively nightlife and Nafklirou is the street with the most bars.
Overnight: Gulet (Kos)  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3
Nisiros & Symi

Kos - Nisiros - Symi. Early this morning we set sail to Nisiros stopping en-route for a swim. The volcano on Nisiros island erupted in 1422 and is still active. Nikea village which clings to the side of the crater has charming white streets and a mosaic-style square. There is an optional bus tour to Nikea and the crater, where you can see the gases rising up eerily from underground.

Late this afternoon we anchor at Symi Port where you'll see the picturesque shoreline. Symi is an enchanting island with pine and oak forests, beautiful bays and neo-classical houses.
Overnight: Gulet (Symi)  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4
Rhodes

Symi - Rhodes. Early this morning we sail to Rhodes, the largest of the Dodecanese Islands. Rhodes Town is one of the largest and best preserved European Medieval cities and is steeped in history. The island was once the home of the knights of St John, then the Ottomans and Italians. The main port is in Rhodes Town, which is still surrounded by a 12m thick city wall and gives you the feeling of travelling back to Medieval times especially when walking its narrow, stone-paved roads. Independently explore the island or you can join an optional tour of the Old Town or Lindos on the south coast. Picturesque Lindos is a popular holiday destination, with a beautiful bay and towering Acropolis. After dinner, we highly recommend that you to enjoy a night out in Rhodes Town.

Day 5
Datca

Rhodes - Datca - Kargi. We bid farewell to the Greek Islands and return to Turkey's south-west coast today. Datca is our first port of call, which was founded by the Dorians who came from the Aegean Sea to the southern coast of Ionia in the 7th century B.C. The Datca peninsular is blessed by having no humidity at all and according to myth Spanish pirates passing by, dropped off people with Hansen's disease at Sariliman Bay to recover, with the help of Datca's fresh air and wonderful climate. There time to take a stroll around Datca Harbor before we travel on to beautiful Kargi Bay, where we spend the night.

Kargi - Knidos. We set sail for Inceburun Bay this morning, where the water is superb and you will have the opportunity to swim in the crystal waters. Next stop is Palamutbuku where we break for lunch and another chance to enjoy a refreshing dip in the Mediterranean. Our final destination today is Knidos on Turkey’s Datca Peninsula. Knidos was once one of the most famous cities in the ancient world. Today temple foundations, toppled columns, huge amphitheatres and a necropolis are the remnants of Knidos’ former glory. You can take a stroll around the shore to explore and see the ruins.
