Embark the yacht in Bodrum Harbour and enjoy a "Welcome Cocktail" prepared by your crew. Once embarkation procedure is over, set sails and head out to Karaada Island or Tavsan Burnu Bay. Both are located just outside of Bodrum. This area offers a quiet and secluded experience for an afternoon lunch.

For the night it is possible to move back into Bodrum Harbour, especially if the group would like to savour Bodrum by night and enjoy walking through the bazaar, chatting with locals at a café. Overnight in Bodrum Harbour, or anchored out in a quiet nearby bay.

As an alternative is to spend a night in a beautiful Aquarium Bay famous for its pristine nature and crystal-clear turquoise sea. It is a beautiful place to wake up in the morning and enjoy a cup of coffee freshly prepared by the crew.


It’s time to sail off to your next stop right after breakfast. A cute little village of Gumusluk is one of the most popular places around Bodrum peninsula that offers nice seafood. In summer the bay in front of Gumusluk is full of yachts that bring here guest to savour great fish and Turkish meze. Restaurants are small and atmospheric with friendly locals. It is possible to spend some time walking on shore and see how villagers live their daily life in the decorations of whitewashed houses and blooming bougainvillaea. You can also walk to see ancient ruins of a small Carian town that was founded by Mausolus in the 4th century BC. According to historical facts, local harbour gave shelter to the fleet of Egypt in the same century. It is also mentioned that the ships of Gaius Cassius Longinus, one of Julius Caesar's assassins, spent some time here in 44 BC.

Spend the night in this harbour or ask the captain to move closer to the village of Yalikavak that is scheduled for day 3.


Yalikavak is one of the most popular summertime destinations of the “Turkish Riviera”. Take in the sights and sounds of this bustling little village, known for its historical little centre, a world-class marina that hosts beautiful sailing and motor yachts of all sizes.

Enjoy a walk at the little beach and shop in some local interesting boutique-style shops. It is possible to spend here a few hours and then move away to a secluded bay and enjoy an onboard relaxation.


Before heading back to the harbour of Bodrum, pay a visit to Golturkbuku (previously named as Turkbuku). It is considered to be the “St Tropez” of Turkey. In hot summer days this place turns into one of the most fashionable places “to see and to be seen”. Famous actors, singers, and other celebrities spend here their holidays. The most exciting nightclubs of Istanbul close their cosmopolite doors and open lounge and clubbing residences in Golturkbuku. Yet, this area manages to keep its “summer house” ambience with beautiful nature, mandarin and olive trees growing around. Golturkbuku is famous for its mix of authentic small cafes with local food and world-class restaurants, numerous bays with turquoise water of the sea and peaceful sounds of cicadas singing.


Move on to Bodrum for disembarkation while breakfast is served underway by the crew.
