BODRUM TO GOCEK (OR VICE VERSA)

Board your gulet in the bustling, bohemian town of Bodrum where a lively cosmopolitan restaurant and nightlife go hand in hand with a rich ancient history, some of the remains of which can be seen at the Mausoleum, the spectacular Castle of St Peter and the world famous Museum of Underwater Archaeology. From Bodrum set sail to the ancient harbour of Knidos where the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas meet. The ruins of temples and theatres at this dramatic location date from Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine periods and have been little excavated. Further on, explore parts of the green and untouched Datca Peninsula at Palamut, a small village and bay with crystal clear water and a sandy beach, the pretty harbour of Datca town and historical Bencik Bay. The southern side of the Datca Peninsula takes you into the Gulf of Hisaronu which is home to some beautiful bays and sleepy coastal villages of incredible beauty such as Selimiye, as well as revealing more treasures of antiquity including the Hellenistic citadel at Bozukkale. The last leg of the cruise sees stops at Kadirga and Ekincik - from where you can hire a small boat to explore the river delta, the spectacular rock tombs at Caunos, and Iztuzu beach where Loggerhead turtles lay their eggs. On to Aga Liman before finishing in the yachting haven of Gocek. Each stop is uniquely stunning and atmospheric offering fantastic swimming, picturesque views, hiking opportunities, ancient sites to explore, and yet more relaxation, sunbathing and fantastic dining on board.

Generally our gulet cruises last 7 or 14 days, but in low season we may be able to offer 4, 5, 8 or 10 days. Please enquire for details.
