Day 1: MARMARIS
Boarding starts at 15:30 from Marmaris Harbour. Guests who arrive early may leave their luggage at the Boating Turkey Office. On the first day, our boat will be anchored in Marmaris Harbour for dinner and overnight stay. Marmaris, which was built upon the antique Caria city; Physkos, has been under the rule of many different civilizations. The most valuable work of art that you can see today is Marmaris Castle dating back to 1577. There is also a mosque and an 8-room caravansary covered with arches from the Ottoman Period. The ruins of the Antique times lie on Asar Hill; a small, low hill located on the northern side of the city. Being one of the best-known touristic places of Turkey, Marmaris has also a large marina.

Day 2: SERCE - BOZUKKALE (LORYMA)
After breakfast, you will be informed about the cruise itinerary and then we will set sail for Serce Bay .It is the bay where you can see the Byzantine shipwreck from the 11th century, which is exhibited in Bodrum Museum. We will anchor at Bozukkale for the overnight stay. In the ancient city of Bozukkale (Loryma), there is a castle which stretches out in a rectangle with its city walls and 9 towers. The name Bozukkale means 'crooked castle' and might be associated with the fact that one side of the castle is missing. Because of its geographical situation and the narrow port entrance, the port was also used by the Greek naval forces during the Peloponnese Sea Battle. Karor, the Commander of Athens gathered all his ships here before the Cnidus War in 395 B.C., and Demetrius; the son of Antigonos used this port for preparations before attacking Rhodes in 305 B.C.

Day 3: DATCA
After breakfast we will sail and anchor at Datca. We will get the basic needs of the boat such as food, beverages etc. from this port. Datca was founded by the Dorians who came from Aegean Sea to the southern coast of Ionia in the 7th century B.C. The island has no humidity at all and has fresh air with plenty of oxygen. The historian Strabon was right when he remarked of Datca's weather: "God would send his beloved servants to Datca to live longer". According to a myth, while the Spanish pirates were passing by the coast of Datca, they disembarked people with Hansen's disease in Sariliman Bay and these abandoned people recovered from their disease with the help of the clean weather of Datca. You can explore Datca by yourself or join the optional Cnidus tour. For dinner and overnight stay, we will anchor in Datca or at a nearby bay.

Day 4: AKTUR - BENCIK
After breakfast, we will cruise to Aktur Bay. Then our first stop will be Bencik Bay; which has a very narrow entrance but a unique view once you get inside. Bencik is located at the narrowest part of the peninsula that divides Hisaronu Gulf from Gokova Gulf but it is located at Hisaronu side. In 550s B.C., the Cnidus people wanted to dig a tunnel in the narrowest land piece of the peninsula between the Hisaronu Gulf and the Gokova Gulf as a defence line against the Persians. They would make two peninsulas one island and the defence easier in that way. They started with great diligence and put forth a lot of effort; however, in the end they could not manage and the city was conquered by the Persians. Dinner and overnight stay will be in Bencik Bay.

Day 5: ORHANIYE - SELIMIYE
Today, we will be sailing into the Hisaronu Gulf. For lunch we will dock in Orhaniye. In Orhaniye Bay, you will see the unique scenery of a natural tidal formation called 'Kiz Kumu' (Maiden's Beach). There are so many myths about this reddish sand-path going from the shore to the inner parts of the sea which is suitable for walking. On a tiny island located in the bay, you can see the wrecks of an antique castle, a sign of an ancient city. Today, our final destination will be Selimiye for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 6: DIRSEKBUKU - BOZBURUN
After anchoring in Dirsekbuku, we will go to Bozburun which is a small fishing town. This area was popular and suitable for sponge-diving but nowadays the people of the island are no more interested in sponge-diving as it is not financially beneficial and it is dangerous. In recent years sponge-diving has been replaced by gulet tourism and nowadays Bozburun Gulets take their place in the sector.

Day 7: ARAP ISLAND - KADIRGA - MARMARIS
Today, we start cruising early in the morning to Arap Island. Lunch will be served in Kadirga Bay. After a swimming break, we return to Marmaris Port about 16:00 to have dinner and overnight stay.

Day 8: MARMARIS
The guests will leave the boat with precious memories by 10:30 after breakfast.

What our clients say!

Dear Mr Artar,

Just a quick note to let you know how very much my kids, friends and I enjoyed the La Mer and her crew. The chef was absolutely superb, and has converted all of us to the delights of Turkish cuisine. Abdullah could not have been more jolly and delightful, and JJ was all a captain
should be. Please tell them how much we all enjoyed their efforts, and pass on my good wishes to them.

Many Kindest regards

Dear Necmi,

We had a absolute ball! We are 9 middle age friends who hired a self catering Gulet, not quite knowing what to expect! We didn't want to eat on board every night, but wanted to go ashore to socialise! Wow - Zigi ( our gracious Captain ), Ersan ( 2nd mate and a superb waiter) and Josef ( an amazing Chef, whose food surpassed any eaten ashore!), made our time on board, better than anything we could have expected! Never belly laughed so much in years, we all returned back to work horizontal! Thank you so very, very, much!
Thanks, Necmi for your patience and help,
Michael and friends!

It’s true that our experience with BOATING TURKEY has been very successful and we are left with huge desire to return to Turkey to continue sailing and keep discovering and enjoying so many places we did not know.

Although our decision to come to Turkey was taken later the whole relationship during the contact, posterior talks and conclusion of the rental boat were excellent as well the state of the ship and all the support received in Yalikavak.

At the moment is a little bit early but we are willing to repeat and coming again next year and of course with you again.

Dear Necmi,

Many thanks to Necmi for assisting throughout the booking process. It was an excellent week of sailing going from Gocek and spending most of the week in the surrounding area. The boat was in great condition and I could tell that it had been well looked after. The handover with the charter company, Portway Yacht Charters was done very well and they accommodated for our late arrival ensuring we would be able to get onto the boat to sleep that night. I highly recommend booking through Boating Turkey and will certainly be using them again in 2016.
