On the first day the boat will stay in the harbor for dinner and overnight. You can walk through the streets of the city, get acquainted with the culture of the country.
At breakfast you will be informed about the cruise program. Then you go to the Arabian Peninsula. Spend the night in Bozukkale. Here you can see the ancient ruins of the castle. It impresses with its massive walls. The name Bozukalle means “curved lock” and may be due to the fact that one side of the castle is missing. Due to its geographical location and narrow entrance to the port, the castle was used by the Greek naval forces during the naval battle at Peleponah.
After stopping in Dirsekbuku, you will go to Bozburun - a small fishing town. Earlier here, many people were engaged in diving in search of sponges. Nowadays, island residents are no longer interested in the sponge. They consider this occupation too dangerous. In recent years, gulet tourism has been developing here. Bozburun famous for the construction of these boats.
Bencik - Datca
Our first stop will be in Bencik Bay. It has a very narrow entrance and a unique look. Bencik is located at the narrowest part of the peninsula that separates Hisaronu Gulf and Gökova Bay. In the 550s BC the people of Knidus wanted to dig a tunnel here as a line of defense against the Persians. Thus, they made two peninsulas one island and it became easier to defend. They put a lot of effort into it. But in the end they could not cope and the city was conquered by the Persians. Then you will go to Datca to have dinner and spend the night.
This is followed by the first stop on the Greek island of Symi. Beautiful bays and pebble beaches, which daily boats from Rhodes. A lot of people sail during the day to eat in restaurants and wander around the beautiful city. Simi is just seven miles from the coast of Turkey. The city is built up with multi-colored mansions in the neoclassical style. At the top of the hill stands the castle.
There are many attractions. One of them is the Old Town. This is a labyrinth of narrow streets and cobbled alleys, various shops and the Palace of the Grand Master Knight of St. John. Rhodes was once the bastion of this powerful religious fraternity, which decorated the city with trophies of war and profited from trade. An island rich in history and mythology. For example, the story of a giant statue that was used to guard the harbor. She was so big that ships could sail between her legs. After dinner, you are strongly advised to enjoy the night in Rhodes.
