Day 1

FETHIYE GOCEK BAYS

Our cruising adventure begins in the vibrant town of Fethiye. This is where our finely crafted Turkish gulets embark for a week of a lifetime. This afternoon we check onto our vessel where we will meet our fellow passengers and crew. Following a briefing on boat life, we set sail to the beautiful Gocek Bays where the numerous islands and sheltered bays form the beautiful gulf of Fethiye. Our first stop will be Yassıca Islands. These islands have gorgeous views with crystal clear water. The bays are shallow and ideal for water sports enthusiasts. After our first swim stop, we will be cruising to Bedri Rahmi Bay named after Bedri Rahmi Eyuboglu who was an esteemed master of Turkish literature, art, and painting. In the summer of 1973, during a cruise with his close friends, he drew a fish on a huge rock. This Fish Rock is located at the entrance of the blue bay still greeting passengers. It is a stunning bay with pine and olive trees covering the hills behind the oleander flowers, small beaches, and turquoise waters, creating a majestic sight! We will overnight in this beautiful bay. (B, L, D)


Day 2

CLEOPATRA’S BATH AND SARSALA BAY 

After breakfast and a short cruise, we arrive at Cleopatra’s Bath or Sunken Bath due to the submerged ruins of an old Roman bath in the water. Revel in the stories that you are swimming where Cleopatra herself used to holiday with her lover Marc Antony and bathe in these very waters.  Thermal volcanic activity in the hills behind this bay leads to naturally warm hot springs and a crater lake which used to feed the ancient bath. 

In the distance through the pine trees is the famous Lycian hiking trail and you might spot some of the Lycian tombs carved in the hills.  We are very close to another ancient city known as Lydae where you can find some Roman and Byzantine ruins of temples, mausoleums, cisterns, and other ancient structures.

We will overnight in Sarsala Bay which is another bay preferred by blue cruise gulets as it is ideal for swimming along a beach, a wooded valley that runs inland, surrounded by pine forestry mountains. Sarsala bay was once home to the governor of Egypt under the Ottoman Empire (B, L, D)

Day 3

KUMLUKBUKU, PARADISE ISLAND, MARMARIS 

Kumlubuku Bay is stunning and overlooked by the ruins of the ancient settlement of Amos. There is an acropolis, an amphitheater, a temple, and an altar dedicated to Dionysus to explore. It is a bit of a hike up to this important historic site but the efforts of those who persist will be rewarded with spectacular views over the bay. The pristine clear waters of the bay offer good snorkeling and swim in the crystal clear waters. The next stop is Paradise island. The beautiful island is covered in pine forests and it has a pristine coastline for a perfect dip into the sea. It is a very popular boat trip destination since it is located right across Marmaris. After swimming and having our afternoon tea, we are heading to the vibrant city of Marmaris.  Marmaris is a natural port that has a marina today for 800 boats makes this resort town a paradise for tourists. Marmaris is one of the most elegant yachting resorts along the Turkish Riviera. Many choices of shops, cafes, and restaurants are to be found along the cute winding narrow streets of the town as well as some of the best clubs and bars in the region. (B, L, D) 


Day 4

EKINCIK, DALYAN

Ekincik is an unspoiled natural wonder. The 2 km long stretch of the unspoilt gravel beach meets a small harbour where the scenery is stunning and there are many opportunities to observe the local wildlife. If you sign up for the optional excursion to Dalyan you will be taken from your yacht by a small boat called “piyade”. You will arrive at Turtle beach and take a swim stop here. You will enjoy the natural beauty of the delta as you sail along in the riverboat. You will see the ancient Rock Tombs and finally arrive at mud baths to relax and be rejuvenated. The warm water softens the skin and eliminates wrinkles because it contains high ratio sulphur.  Dalyan is an unspoilt village surrounded by pine-clad hills, cotton fields and miles of untouched coastline. Astonishing rock tombs were carved out of the local cliffs here 2,500 years ago.  The ancient city of Kaunos lies here with its ruins dating back to 3000 years. This is also the beach where the endangered Loggerhead Turtles lay their eggs since the beginning of time. The nesting time is from May till October. (B, L, D) 

Optional tour;

River cruise Dalyan delta, Visit Kaunos ancient city and Iztuzu beach

Day 5

AGALIMANI, GOCEK, DOMUZ ISLAND

Agalimani is a secluded and cozy cove where only a few boats can set anchor at one time. There is a small white sandy beach where you can swim ashore and then can sunbathe with plenty of privacy. Take a snooze right on the beach or hike to the nearby ruins. Hiking up the slopes will also give you a stunning view of the entire cove. The next stop will be the vibrant town and also a yachting paradise called Gocek. After docking in the harbor you can enjoy an afternoon in this small but very cute local town with lots of shops, cafes, and cocktail bars. In the afternoon we are heading to another swim stop called Domuz island. This is a popular stopover to relax in the tranquil waters. once upon a time there were a lot of wild pigs here that’s why the island was named Domuz (Pork) Island. Tonight, another delicious dinner awaits followed by relaxing evening playing games or simply staring up at the stars (B, L, D) 

Optional tour; Scuba diving in Fethiye Gulf


Day 6

TERSANE ISLANDS, BLUE LAGOON, ST. NICHOLAS ISLAND

Tersane Islands also known as Shipyard Islands are the largest in the Gulf of Fethiye. A deep, 100m long channel provides entry into these islands. The water in this area is stunning and crystal blue, often you will see many fish swimming along beside you. After a great swim stop, we will head to majesty Oludeniz; Blue Lagoon. Thousands of paragliders jump from this mountain and watching them soar above is just incredible. If you want to tick this experience off your bucket list, we can organize a jump from Mount Baba Dag and you can take the ultimate selfie. Following a dip in the most photographed waters of the Mediterranean, we will make our way to the legendary St Nicholas Island.  After some relaxation, you might like to take the highly recommended mini hike up to the lighthouse on top of St Nicholas Island for a mighty sunset.
