Day 1 Marmaris
Welcome on board for your Marmaris gulet cruise. On the first day of the gulet cruise, after arriving on your yacht in mid-afternoon, and getting ready to set sail, take one day to enjoy the city of Marmaris and all it has to offer. The city is always busy, day and night, and you have ample access to multiple choices of cuisine and activity. This is also time to stock up on any extra items you want before you set sail. While Marmaris has a lot to offer, you might consider dining on board your yacht, enjoying the wonderful private chef service, which is the first of many to come, and watching the bustling city and harbor in action. That busy tempo will be a contrast to the coming days of quiet and relaxation sailing into bays and secluded beaches.
Day 2 Ekincik (Dalyan)
Between Marmaris and Dalyan lies the beautiful bay of Ekincik. The loveliest is the small Iztuzu Beach. Iztuzu Beach is closed at night since it is a nesting ground for the loggerhead turtle, During the day it there is a pebble and sandy beach environment with only a few yachts are moored off its side.
Just after the beach you will find the Dalyan Delta, and this is an explorer's dream, with its Lycian tombs and the ancient ruined city of Kaunos. If you prefer to be more active, then enjoy some of the water sports offered in the bay of Ekincik. You can choose a short brisk walk along the western banks of the Delta and maybe spot a wild boar foraging for food.
Day 3 Tersane Island, Cleopatra`s Bath, Kizil Ada
The biggest island in the Gulf of Fethiye is Tersane Island, known also as Shipyard Island. This bay has a 100 meter deep channel that was used by the Ottoman navy, hence the name shipyard island. The bay area has a lot of coves and towards the east lies the Summer Harbor. The west side of the bay is not used much due to the strong winds that prevail most of the year. There is an ancient ruined town nearby called Telandria, and if you want to stretch your legs while sail Turkey, this is a great place to do so.
Day 4 Fethiye
Fethiye on Turkey's southwestern Turquoise Coast is known for its natural harbor, blue waters and numerous rock tombs including the 4th-century B.C. Tomb of Amyntas, carved into a cliff overlooking the city. You can turn down a side street in Fethiye and come face-to-face with a tomb dating back some 1,300 years.
It is a well-known tourist center in the south west of Turkey, and has a lot of bars, restaurants and many different day and night entertainment spots. The city has three marinas, all with modern facilities.
Day 5 Yassica Islands
In the Gulf of Fethiye lies the Yasica islands, these are uninhabited islands that are perfect for swimming, visiting and just sailing around. Most of these islands have secluded beaches that provide a private relaxation environment, and you can spend the hours swimming and enjoying the quiet. You can also enjoy different water sports here especially child safe water sports that will keep your kids busy. The beaches and sea shores are stony, so you should come prepared with proper sea footwear.
Some of the islands are so close to each other, that you can swim from one to the other, which provides a lot of fun as well as competitiveness. The nearest port is located at Gocek, and that is also where most of the day trippers come from. Try to stay for sunset, this is when the cameras come out and some of the most romantic and breathtaking shots can be taken as the sun disappears beyond the horizon.
Day 6 Sarsala Bay, Bedri Rahmi (Tasyaka) Bay, Aga Limani
Yachtsmen love cruises in Turkey especially Sarsala Bay since it is a natural bay with great swimming opportunities as well as a good place for overnight anchoring. The bay includes a pontoon that leads to a restaurant, and the inland scenery is delightful. There is a valley that leads inland through a dense forest of trees. The beach itself is stony, so come prepared with the right footwear.
Day 7 Kadirga Harbor, Star Island (Nimara)
Next stop of your gulet trip is west of Marmaris where you come to the Blue Flag awarded and sheltered Kadirga Harbour. Rightly awarded since it has amazing clear waters and provides a the opportunity for a quick swim.
Day 8 Marmaris
After completing your wonderful and exhilarating blue voyage Turkey across the Mediterranean, maybe the Aegean and Adriatic too, you arrive back in Marmaris and prepare for your return home. This is a great moment to enjoy a day’s stay over in this amazing city. Marmaris is a jewel, its name is appropriate “Turquoise coast” and it provides you with every taste of the Mediterranean and Turkey before you leave for home. This is the time to take that last shopping walk and buy something to take home to remind you of those wonderful days of cruising along the beautiful coast.
