Detailed Itinerary

Boarding starts by 15.30 at Marmaris Marina. You will have time for visiting the old town and bazaar of Marmaris with its small streets and hundreds of shops, bars and restaurants. The castle of Marmaris lies on the old town hill and offers a beautiful view across the harbor. Dinner and overnight stay will be in Marmaris.

After breakfast you will be informed about the cruise itinerary and boat. We set sail to Arap Island where the lunch will be served, then cruise to Bozukkale, known as Loryma in the ancient times. Bozukkale means 'Crooked Castle' and this name is given to the castle as its one side is missing. Dinner and overnight stay will beat Bozukkale.

We anchor at Datca Harbor after breakfast. Datca is a small harbor town that dates back to the Dorian times and it is the nearest place to the ancient city of Knidos which lies at the west end of the peninsula that you may join as an optional excursion. We will anchor in a near and nice bay called Kargi as a swimming stop. In the evening you will have free time to visit Datca with its lovely little streets and harbor.

We will cruise to Aktur for a swimming stop then set sail to Bencik which has a narrow entrance but a unique view. Bencik is located at the narrowest part of the Datca Peninsula that divides Hisaronu Gulf from the Gokova Gulf. You should take a short walk up to the top of the hill in Bencik, you can have at the same time the fantastic views of these two gulfs. In 550’s B.C. the Knidos people wanted to dig a tunnel in Bencik, the narrowest land piece of the peninsula as defence line against the Persians. That way they tried to get Datca part as an island to make a stronger defense. However, in the end they could not manage and the city was conquered by the Persians.

We will cruise into the Gulf of Hisaronu and anchor in Orhaniye where you can see the natural tidal formation called Kiz Kumu (Maiden’s Beach) and the wrecks of an antique castle located on a tiny island in the bay. Here, you may join an optional jeep safari which brings you to the colourful little villages in the mountains and to the water fall of Turgut
Village. We will cruise towards Selimiye and anchor around Koca Island for the overnight stay.

We anchor in Dirsekbuku bay for a swimming stop where blue and green meet in perfect harmony. Then we will go to Bozburun which is a small fishing town. Overnight will take place in a nice bay around Bozburun.

After breakfast departure for Kadirga or Kumlubuk bay which lies within the
sight of Marmaris but is cut off from it by a forbidding set of Limestone Mountains. You will have lunch in a nice bay of Cennet Island. Overnight stay will be at Marmaris Harbor.
