Embark your yacht in the harbor of Bodrum. You will receive information about the yacht and cruise itinerary while sipping your “welcome cocktail”. Dinner and overnight docked at the harbor of Bodrum.
Day 2 – KNIDOS – PALAMUTBUKU BAY
Departure to Knidos, a strategically important city in the 4th century BC and one of the six cities forming the league called the Dorian Hexapolis. The ancient town can be considered as the spot on Asia Minor that separates the Aegean from the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. After cruising for about 3 hours from Bodrum, the yacht will drop anchor in one of two ancient harbors in Knidos. Departure to Palamutbuku Bay following lunch for overnight as the Knidos Harbour is unfortunately relatively unprotected from the wind.
Day 3 – DATCA

Breakfast at Ekincik Bay where you may choose to take a river boat trip to visit the ancient city of Kaunos and to see the rock tombs of the Lycian Kings, the mud baths and Beach of Iztuzu, famous for the sea turtles called Caretta Caretta. This is an all day journey through the labyrinth of the delta of Dalyan River surrounded with thick vegetation of reeds.
DAY 6 – FETHIYE – GOCEK
Set sail towards the Gulf of Fethiye before breakfast since the constant counter wind in the later hours will not allow sailing.
