Itinerary

Getting to Bodrum is easy, with numerous low-cost airlines flying direct to Bodrum from across Europe. There are also a number of airlines that fly from Istanbul to Bodrum, including 10-15 flights per day operated by the flag carrier, Turkish Airlines.

Day 1

Bodrum

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.
