• Marmaris Classic

    Marmaris is one of the most popular tourism towns in Turkey. Its natural deep water harbour sits in a sheltered bay surrounded by forested hills and boasts excellent marina facilities.The narrow streets around the Ottoman mosque, Castle and caravansaray are all that remains of the old town. With its modern hotels, busy shops and  markets, Marmaris  spreads out along the beachfront, lined with cafés and restaurants.

    Day 1: Marmaris

    Embarkation commences from 3:30 p.m and our bi-lingual crew will welcome you aboard and, over welcoming drinks,  inform you of the cruise programme and safety procedures of the yacht.The yacht remains tied up at the quayside of the harbour*. After dinner, served on deck, you will have the opportunity to step ashore to enjoy a stroll through the old town and enjoy the nightlife.

    *According to your preference, you may anchor overnight in a nearby bay, as opposed to staying in the port. 

    Day 2: Arab Island - Bozukkale

    While you enjoy breakfast the gulet will sail to the Arab Island, Arap Adasi. After lunch, and a break for swimming and snorkeling, the gulet sails on to Bozukkale Bay. The ancient citadel’s ruined walls lends its Turkish name Bozukkale, "crooked castle" to the bay. In ancient times it was the powerful city of Loryma, which, with its geographical situation and protected bay, was an important port of the Rhodian Peraia, the mainland territories of the Island of Rhodes, visible just 32Km away. The yacht anchors in the bay overnight

    Day 3 : Datca

    Following breakfast the gulet rounds the cape and sails across the gulf to the port of Datca, the largest town on the Resadiye Peninsula. Whilst fresh provisions are taken onboard  you may like to take a walk into the charming town. The Dorians who sailed across  the Aegean Sea to the southern coast of Ionia in the 7th century B.C. founded the city. Named as Cnidus, Knidos, the city was moved to the tip of the peninsula. Today the ruins of the city are under excavation. Datca was re-sited in modern times to the protected harbour. Datca can be explored independently or you may wish to join an optional tour** to Cnidus the ancient city, and the home of the Aphrodite cult. The yacht ties up in either Datca or in a nearby bay. Dinner is served on deck.

    Day 4 :  Aktur - Bencik

    The gulet sails on to Aktur after breakfast and the yacht then continues into the narrow Bencik Bay, with its spectacular scenery. The Persians led by General Harpagos, came to conquer the Datca Peninsula in 550 B.C. The Cnidus people wanted to link both gulfs by digging a channel between to make one defensive island but they could not complete it in time, so the city was overcome by the Persians. The dinner and overnight stay will in Bencik bay.

    Day 5:  Selimiye-Orhaniye

    Leaving Bencik Bay we sail into the Hisaronu Gulf and we dock in Selimiye Bay where lunch will be served. In the afternoon we sail for the harbour of Orhaniye for dinner and overnight stay. In Orhaniye you can enjoy an optional jeep safari to discover the unique village way of life**. In the bay there is a unique natural phenomenon called "kiz mumu", Girl's candle,a reddish sandy path that runs from the shore into the sea. In the bay there is a small island with the ruins of an ancient fortress.

    Day 6 : Dirsekbuku-Bozburun

    After breakfast we sail around the coast to Dirsekbuku. We will then continue onto Bozburun, a popular charming small fishing town which was once a port for the sponge-diving trade in the early 20th century. When disease struck the sponge beds, sponges are a form of algae, and stocks declined the fishermen abandoned the region and so today the main scource of income for the locals comes from yacht building and tourism.

    Day 7 :  Kadirga-Marmaris

    From Bozburn we sail to Kadirga or Kumlu Buku after breakfast. After lunch, at Paradise İsland, you have the opportunity for swimming  before the cruise finishes with the final dinner in Marmaris.

    After the breakfast our guests say farewell to the crew and gulet, and disembark before 10:30a.m.
