Blue Cruise - Bodrum - Gulf of Gokova - 7 nights
Day 1 to Day 8

Day 1: Bodrum
Boarding starts at 3:30pm from Bodrum Harbour. On the first day, our boat will remain anchored in Bodrum Port for dinner and stay at the port for overnight. Bodrum has a history that goes back to the 12th century B.C. The city was called `Halicarnassus` and it 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 Ancient 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: Orak Island - Cokertme
After breakfast, you will be informed about the cruise itinerary and the boat. Then we will cruise to Orak Island. Here you will have the opportunity of swimming in the crystal-blue waters of Orak Island and enjoying lunch, we will then sail to Cokertme, a small and picturesque fishing town, for dinner and overnight stay. If the weather conditions permit, it may be possible to hoist sail on the way. Guests are welcome to take a short walk on the shore.

Day 3: Seven Islands (Kufre / Uzun Liman - Long Port) - English Harbour
We will cruise to Seven Islands before breakfast, early in the morning. You will experience another excellent day in the Seven Islands region, which is full of many small islands and coral reef; it is recommended that you should dive, swim, sleep and rest. Our guests can also enjoy a walk in the forests, filled with pine trees. Our first stop in the Seven Islands region will be Kufre Bay. Then we will be anchoring at Uzun Liman (Long Port). Afterwards we will cruise to English Port for dinner and overnight stay. The name English Port comes from the time of World War II, as the ships of British Navy forces used to dock here. In this area, there are many small and large bays which are suitable and sheltered enough to anchor for boats.

Day 4: Cleopatra Island - Karacasogut
We will cruise to Sedir (Cedrae) Island. This unique island with its small beach and unbelievable clear water is like an open-air museum. You can see the city walls, the temple from the time of Dorians` reign (later restored as a church), the amphitheatre with 1,500 guest capacity and some vaulted historical buildings. You can walk around the wrecks of pillars with antique writings on them or the ancient stones decorated with reliefs. Cleopatra Beach, located on this island, has a very special kind of sand that can only be found in the deserts of Northern Africa. According to myth, King Antonius brought the sand from Egypt via sea for Cleopatra. Then our boat will sail to Karacasogut village for dinner and spend the night there. This lovely village is located at 25km away from Marmaris. Therefore, it is possible to visit Marmaris via `dolmush` (mini buses) if you wish. We also have an optional tour to Dalyan - Caunos.

Day 5: Longoz - Tuzla
Morning swimming will soon become a part of your daily activities. For lunch, our captain will cruise to Longoz Bay; another place just like paradise, sheltered with huge pine forests. After lunch, you can enjoy a short walk in the forest and take a rest in Ali Baba`s local shed-like cafe. Afterwards the gulet will be anchoring at Tuzla Bay to enjoy a swimming break in the turquoise-blue waters. Dinner and overnight stay will be at Tuzla.

Day 6: Kargili - Kisebuku (Alakislabuku)
We will be at Kargili Bay (Molla Ibrahim Bay) early in the morning. After lunch, we will be anchoring at Kisebuku (Alakislabuku), where you can see ruins of the Byzantines. We will spend the night in this lovely bay.

Day 7: Pabucburnu - Yaliciftlik - Bodrum
We will sail to Pabucburnu after breakfast and enjoy lunch here. Tea will be served in Yaliciftlik Bay. An optional village tour can be arranged from this bay for those who wish to experience local life. Then we will cruise back to Bodrum Port for our last dinner and overnight stay.

Day 8: Bodrum
Guests will leave the boat with precious memories by 10:30am, after breakfast.

Turkey straddles East and West, modern and traditional. Turkey bills itself, and rightfully so, as the "Cradle of Civilization," boasting more Greek ruins than Greece and more Roman archaeological sites than all of Italy. Turkey is also a major custodian of sacred sites revered by Christians, Jews, and Muslims alike, and of invaluable remnants of early Greek civilization, Byzantine majesty, and Ottoman culture and artistry. The Turkish people have an unrivalled reputation for hospitality, the cuisine is to die for, the coastline is a dream, and many Turkish cities are dotted with spectacular mosques and castles.

Blue Cruise - Bodrum - Gulf of Gokova + Istanbul
Formerly known as Hallicarnassus, Bodrum is the home of the great Mausoleum, one the seven wonders of antiquity, the famous castle, amphitheatre and to a very unique marine museum. Nowadays, it is Turkey's most popular seaside tourist destination, a party town with a magnificent mountain surrounding, that is full of great markets. The most impressive landmark is the Bodrum Castle, built by the Crusaders in the 15th century, overlooking the harbor and the International Marina. The castle grounds includes a Museum of Underwater Archeology and hosts several cultural festivals throughout the year. From here, you can take daytrips to the nearby islands or you can enjoy the Mavi Yoluculu (the "Blue Cruise"), Cevat's romanticized weeklong journey along the glorious coastlines of the Mediterranean.
Istanbul is one of the truly great romantic cities. Istanbul is home to a layering of civilization on civilization, of empire built on empire. A stroll through this historic city will reveal ancient Roman hippodromes, peristyles, and aqueducts, the greatest excesses of the Byzantine Empire and the mystique and power of the Ottoman Empire. In this sprawling, continent-spanning city you can tramp the streets where crusaders and janissaries once marched; admire mosques that are the most sublime architectural expressions of Islamic piety; peer into the sultan's harem; and hunt for bargains in the Kapali Çarsi.

Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Ayasofya,Topkapi Palace, Dolmabahce Palace, the Blue Mosque, the Grand Bazaar and the Egyptian Spice Bazaar, Suleymaniye Camii, St. Savior in Chora, the New Mosque, Galata Tower, Taksim Square, the Hippodrome and so much more!
