Day 1: BODRUM
Boarding starts at 15:30 from Bodrum Harbour. Guests who arrive early can leave their luggage at the Boating Turkey Office. On the first day, our boat will be anchored in Bodrum Port for dinner and overnight stay. Bodrum has a history that goes back to the 12th century B.C. The city which was called 'Halicarnassus' was the birthplace of Herodotus; the 'Father of History' who lived in the 5th century B.C. The 'Mausoleum' of King Mausolus (350 B.C.) one of the Seven Wonders of the World is in this city. The only structure that survived from the Classical Era is the Amphitheatre. It is one of the oldest theatres in Anatolia with a capacity of 13.000 guests and it is still hosting many shows and concerts for the art-lovers of Bodrum. Another place that you should visit when you arrive in Bodrum is the landmark of the city, the 'Castle of Saint Peter'. It is one of the best preserved pieces of architecture with a history dating back to the Middle Ages. 'Myndos Gate' through which Alexander the Great entered Halicarnassus is another place that you should not miss.

Day 2: COS (KOS)
After breakfast, you will be informed about the cruise itinerary and the boat. After the customs formalities are completed, we will cruise to Kos Island. Asclepion, known to be the birth place of Hippocrates, who is 'the Father of Medical Sciences', is located here. All the people from the east Mediterranean with health problems were treated in Kos (İstankoy). Kos; the second largest island of the 12 islands (the Dodecanese Islands) has a very mild climate and very fertile lands. The island houses a 560-year-old tree, a 211-year-old fountain and a 290 km long beach. You may take a quick swim in Lambi Beach which is very close to Kos Harbour. Kos is one of the islands with the best night life. Nafklirou, a street full of bars, is always crowded, colourful, and full of life.

Day 3: PSERIMOS & LEROS
We will start to cruise early in the morning to Pserimos Island for breakfast and a swimming break. Then we will cruise to the beautiful island of Leros. Leros is a mountainous, green island with high cliffs and many small bays and villages. After lunch and a swimming break in Xerakampos, we will anchor at Lakki Harbour or Agia Marina Port located in the east. You should visit Platanos the main city of Leros with steep stairs, narrow streets, and flower gardens. From Platanos you can take the steps leading up the Castle of Leros climbing 300 steps! Rent a bike or explore this island by foot.

Day 4: PATMOS
We will cruise to Patmos Island early in the morning. We will have a swimming break in a bay around the island. Patmos is not a big island, but it is one of the best known. It was here that St. John completed the last part of The Apocalypse of John, and this is why Patmos is sometimes called "The Jerusalem of the Aegean". The Monastery of St. Johns towers above the capital, a village called Chora, and actually the whole island breathes of faith and devotion. According to mythology, Patmos was a present from Zeus to his daughter Artemis, goddess of hunting and young women. She was worshipped here in antiquity, and the monastery of St. John was built on her temple. After breakfast, you may have a walk through the monasteries. Our yacht will stay in Patmos Port for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 5: LIPSI
We will set sail to Lipsi Island. We will have a swimming break in one of the many small islands in front of Lipsi. On Lipsi Island there are beautiful sandy beaches, like Platis and Giolos with their crystal green waters. The capital with its white houses, numerous taverns, cafeterias and restaurants is located in the small natural port. On the island, the Church of the Catopanaghia constructed in the 7th century deserves a visit, along with the Church of Panopanaghia from the 15th century.

Day 6: KALYMNOS
We will take a swimming break in a beautiful bay around Kalymnos Island. We are going to enter Pothia Harbour which is the capital of the island. The islanders ensured their livelyhood with sponge diving for centuries. There are nice beaches such as Massouri, Mirties and Vlyhadia around the island.

Day 7: KARAINCIR - BODRUM
We will have a swimming break at Karaincir on the way back to Bodrum. The return to Turkey will be through Bodrum Port. We will be staying at Bodrum Harbour for dinner and our final overnight stay.

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

When you make an online booking with Boating Turkey you are ensuring more than a top class holiday, you are establishing contact with Necmi Artar.
So what, you might think!!
Well, not only will Necmi look after your Gulet cruising requirements, he can sort out many more of the associated things that are essential to your break, such as transfers from & to the Airport, hotel accommodations, excursions while you are shore-based, transfers from the hotel to the Bodrum marina and back again on completion of your cruise. On our behalf he even checked availability and booked us into the hotel we had found on the internet and specifically wanted to stay at!!
With service like this, it will come as no surprise to learn that the Gulet cruise through the Gulf of Gokova was brilliant. The service was great – Captain and 2 crew to look after just 9 of us – fresh food every day, plenty of cold drinks and beautiful scenery and swimming opportunities.
I can thoroughly recommend this holiday for total relaxation and enjoyment and cannot thank Necmi enough for ensuring that all worked out perfectly

Forget about the world for a while

We are back in Switzerland and are trying to keep all the beautiful memories of your yachting trip from Göcek to Bodrum alive. From the first minute after we arrived in Göcek your team and Captain Ergun and his crew received us with wonderful hospitality and they made the cruise to one of our most fascinating vacation. The changing scenery of the scarcely populated southwest coast of Turkey is unforgettable. Captain Ergun piloted us to a series of romantic bays . The food prepared by the cook was excellent.

Our whole group will keep an unforgettable memory and I am sure we will be back one day.

Thank you again and all the best
Ulrich Herzog and the Team .
