Marmaris » Hisaronu 7-Day Cruising Tour Details
Turkey is a very popular destination for tourists with its beautiful coasts, beaches, and bays. Marmaris, Hisaronu, Fethiye, Bodrum, Datca and many other cities and towns are visited in Turkey every year. Here, you can check the route that we are organizing from Marmaris to Hisaronu.
Transfer from Dalaman Airport to your yacht in Marmaris Harbour. When all members of your group have arrived, the captain will offer you a welcome cocktail and give some information about the cruise. The first night we will stay in Marmaris Harbour so that you will have ample time to get to know this friendly little town and maybe participate in its nightlife.
After breakfast, we depart from Marmaris to Kadırga Bay. There you may occupy yourself most pleasantly with swimming, snorkeling, and windsurfing while the crew prepares lunch. In the afternoon we’ll sail on to Sere Harbour which is not a harbor at all but a little bay in by the mountains. The oldest ancient ship ever to be savaged has been found here. That’s where we stay for our second night on board.
Today we are setting sail for the Bay of Bozburun. You are welcome to try your hand at managing the ship under full sails,
under the guidance of skipper. Bozburun is a pretty little fishing village. It used to be the center of sponge picking along the Turkish coast, but nowadays people there earn their
living in a much less dangerous way by building the typical broad-beamed wooden boats called “GULETS”. For swimming and snorkeling around the underwater ruins in the bay, we stop first at Kizilcaada Island and then make fast at the village jetty for the night.
On this day we’ll push deep into Hisarönü Gulf and anchor for lunch in Selimiye Bay. Behind the village there is an ancient acropolis, crowned by the ruins of a medieval castle. Further up in the hills there is a waterfall you might like to visit. In the afternoon we will continue on to Orhaniye, another lovely bay surrounded by woody mountains. The entrance to the bay is commanded by a medieval fortress on a rocky island.
After breakfast, we are going to cross over to the northern coast of the gulf. There we will first stop at Bencik Bay, a
narrow inlet that cuts the Datça Peninsula almost in half. Our destination for the day is Datça several sailing hours away to the west from Bencik. Datça is rapidly developing from a sleepy village into a hospitable touristic center. Aside from the fun, you can have in town the windsurfing is especially good in Datça Bay.
We are going to start quite early in the morning, with a sailing breakfast being served when we are well underway. Our route leads us into Greek waters. We’ll pass through a narrow channel with very clear water between the islands Simi and Nisiros and then re-enter Turkish waters in order to reach the ancient harbor of Loryma on the south coast of Bozburun Peninsula. Loryma with its impressive ruins and its turquoise water is very attractive.
After a leisurely breakfast, we’ll set sail for Arab Island. Here we’ll enjoy the sea thoroughly for the last time on the cruise. At the sunset we will enter Marmaris Harbour.
Having Breakfast, the time has come to depart from the boat. (Marmaris) “We are hoping to see you on one of our gulets again in the future!”
