Blue Cruises in Turkey

BODRUM HISARONU DELUXE CRUISE

Deluxe cruise from Bodrum with air-conditioned boats.


Bodrum- Hisaronu bay deluxe cruise with air-conditioned luxury gulets.

Day 1: Bodrum

Embarking: You can check in to boats after 15:30. Those who came earlier can leave their luggage at our local agent's office until that time. The cruise boats stay in the marina of Bodrum on the first night of the cruise program, therefore the guests can check-in to the boats till late evening, which gives you flexibility with arrival time of your flights or buses, especially useful if you are not staying in a hotel in Bodrum the previous night. Thus, you will also have a chance to discover colorful night life of Bodrum on the first day of the cruise.

Bodrum is the site of the ancient city of Halikarnassus, the location of the famous Mausoleum of Halikarnassus (built after 353 BCE) - one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Unfortunately, the ancient monument was destroyed by earthquakes in the Middle Ages and nothing left to see, though some of the remnants can be seen at British Museum in London. According to Herodotus, born B.C. 484 in Halikarnassus (Bodrum), the city was founded by the Dor's. Megerans enlarged the city B.C. 650 and changed its name to Halikarnassus, and then Persians started to rule the city. Halikarnassus had its glorious days, when it was the capital of the Karia B.C. 353. One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Mausoleum, was built there by Artemisia for the memory of King Mausolos.

Day 2: Palamutbuku - Inceburun
Early in the morning we start cruise to Palamutbuku Bay. We will anchor in Ince Burun after lunch and swimming breaks. We will stay in this lovely bay for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 3: Aktur - Bencik bays
After breakfast we will cruise to Aktur Bay. Then our first stop will be the 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 the 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 Gökova Gulf as a defense line against the Persians. That way they would make two peninsulas one island to make the defense easier. They started with diligence and put 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 at Bencik Bay.

Day 4: Emel Sayin Bay - Orhaniye - Selimiye
After Breakfast we will anchor at totally impact Emel Sayin Bay and you can enjoy a swimming stop in this lovely bay surrounded with pine forests. For lunch we will dock in Orhaniye. In Orhaniye Bay, you will see 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. 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 5: Dirsek Buku - Bozburun
After anchoring in Dirsekbuku and taking a swimming stop, 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 is dangerous. In recent years sponge-diving is replaced by gulet tourism and Bozburun Gulets nowadays could take its place in this sector.

Day 6: Datca - Knidos (Cnidus)
We will cruise to Datça. Food and water will be supplied to the boat from Datca Harbour. The city was founded by the ancient Dors people 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 Strabo has a rightful saying about Datça'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 pure weather of Datca. You may take a walk in Datca Harbour. We will cruise to Cnidus for dinner and overnight stay. Cnidus was a city advanced in science, art and architecture. Eudoxos, a very popular astronomer and math professor; Dr. Euryphon; Polygontos, a popular painter; Skopas and Bryaksis of Faros, the most famous sculptors of the era; Sostrates, the architect of Alexandrian Light House (one of the seven wonders of ancient World) and Ktesias the doctor who saved the life of a Persian king from a disaster all lived on this island. Dr. Euryphon and his students founded the second largest medical sciences school in the Cnidus. The island also was home to the largest sun clock of its time which was erected by Eudoksos. In Cnidus there was an Aphrodite monument and at those times the city was famous for brothels and became a popular destination for sailors and Arabic tradesmen. You may take a walk on the shore to see the ruins.

Day 7: Black Island - Poyraz Bay - Meteor Bay - Bodrum
We cruise early in the morning to Karaada (Black Island). Breakfast and swimming stop will be at Poyraz Bay which is located at the northern side of the island. This is such a nice bay with its turquoise-blue waters. We will be anchoring at Meteor Bay for lunch which is located at the southern side of the island. There is a meteor hole here and this is how the bay got its name. Here you may jump over the platform in to the deep water. You may also take a walk through the under water cave which is very near to Meteor Bay for a small local fee. We will dock in Bodrum Harbour for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 8: Bodrum
