The coastlines of the Aegean Sea are home to some of the most pristine and beautiful bays and coves, truly idyllic vacation spots. The Blue Voyage was first made famous here where cross winds are excellent for sailing, the bays are secluded and merge with dramatic pine forested coast lines.

The footprints of cultures from the Greeks and Romans to crusading medieval knights, and from Byzantine and Ottoman potentates to 20th-century Italian bureaucrats, are all found here along this rich coastline of Turkeys.

Wake up on board to the warm Aegean sun and crystal clear waters each morning, relax into the rhythm of life on the sea, and enjoy some wonderful sailing between the islands. Disembark to explore the picturesque towns and harbors, boutique shopping, fabulous culinary experiences, and to soak up the unique atmosphere of Aegean Turkey.

While away your time on board relaxing, dining with your friends and group, reading, pulling anchor to explore some of the stunning bays for swimming whenever the mood takes you. Throughout your trip you will be wonderfully looked after by our excellent crew.

DAY 1 - SATURDAY - BODRUM

Transfer to the charming Bodrum Harbour and board your luxurious sailing yacht in the afternoon. Your captain and crew will be waiting for you on board. Spend the first night on board in the Bodrum Harbour or in a bay close by.

DAY 2 - SUNDAY - KNIDOS

Leave Bodrum sailing across the Gulf of Gokova to the site of Knidos, the meeting point of the Mediterranean and Aegean seas. Knidos is famous in antiquity for the cult of Aphrodite started there. Situated at the end of the Datca peninsula, this Dorian city was built on terraces rising to the acropolis. Straddling the peninsula, it had a harbour on either side, and flourished during the Archaic, Classical, Hellenistic and Roman periods. The site was excavated in 1857 by C. T. Newton and from 1967 by Iris Love. Famous as a center of art and culture in the fourth century BC, Knidos was established at the same time that Halicarnassus was, as one of the six Dorian colonies in Asia Minor. It seems to have kept a purer Greek character, no doubt because it set its sights seaward and had little contact with the interior. Around 360 BC, the city was rebuilt at the windblown tip of the peninsula, banking on the fact that a good harbor at the outer corner of Asia Minor would become a popular calling-port for ships on the Aegean - East Mediterranean transit routes. The rocky island facing the shore at the new site was joined to the mainland with a causeway, creating two deep harbors on either side of the isthmus: one on the Aegean and the other on the Mediterranean. The island section held the residential quarters, a series of colonnaded walkways rose in tiers on the land. Two large theaters, an odeon and three temples completed what must have been a striking ensemble in the midst of a desolate crag. The remains of a circular temple dedicated to the goddess of love Aphrodite overlook remains of the two harbors: the arcaded way was built of white marble heart - shaped columns. The legendary Aphrodite of Praxiteles statue, reputedly one of the most beautiful sculptures of the antiquity, once graced this temple. The city was renowned as one of the most beautiful in ancient Greece. In the early evening moor near the idyllic Kargi Bay.

DAY 3 - MONDAY - ESKI DATCA

Early morning set sail to picturesque resort of Datça. Enjoy a stroll through town, offering some lovely shopping and cafés. Renowned for its natural beauty and climate, this town provides a window into the life of rural Turkey of 50 to 100 years ago. Village life is still based on agriculture, fishing, and the building of the gulet (the traditional 2-masted Turkish wooden sailing vessel). Pine, oak, and myrtle filled mountains plunge down to a serene beach and two natural harbors. Sail into the Gulf of Hisaronu with a mountainous coastline that offers numerous anchorages within. Stretching for 30 nautical miles into the Aegean Sea between the Greek Islands of Kos and Rhodes, this gulf provides a sailing paradise with late morning winds and deep blue seas with secluded coves, rugged mountains as a backdrop, and small tranquil villages. The crosswinds in this region are excellent for sailing. Cruise to Ciftlik Bay, a hidden cove with a small sandy beach, half way up the Datca peninsula. Bencik Bay resembles a miniature fjord. The inlet extends inland about 1.5 nautical miles and has steep wooded slopes on either side. Bencik is located at the narrowest part of the peninsula that divides the Hisaronu Gulf from the Gokova Gulf.

DAY 4 - TUESDAY - SELIMIYE & BOZBURUN

Cruise into the wide Bay of Selimiye, one of the safest natural harbours in the Gulf of Hisarönü. Surrounded by magnificent scenery and largely unspoiled, Selimiye village seems as though it was frozen in time. You have a chance to walk around before cruising to Bozburun, a quiet little fishing village. It is used to be the center of sponge diving along the Turkish coast, but nowadays locals here earn their living in a much less dangerous way by building the typical broad-beamed wooden gulets.

DAY 5 - WEDNESDAY - BOZZUKKALE

Depart for the Bay of Bozukkale, which means ‘broken castle’ as one side of the castle is missing. The entrance to the bay is guarded by an ancient citadel 350 meters long and 30 meters wide. In ancient times it was known as the city of Loryma and throughout history this port was used bythe Greek navy forces during Peloponnese Sea. The Colossus, at nearby Rhodes, was built to celebrate the defeat of Antigonus’ invasion force in 305 B.C. It was in Bozukkale Bay that the invasion fleet was assembled. Hike up to the ruins for some spectacular views of the Greek Islands of Simi and Rhodes.

DAY 6 - THURSDAY - PALAMUTBUKU & MERSINCIK

Cruise to this, the most western anchorage in the Gulf of Hisaronu. Palamutbuku is well known for its sparkling clean sea, fresh fish, and delicious locally grown almonds which are produced locally. From here, sail to Mersincik in the Gulf of Gokova; a stunning bay ringed with high mountains and woods, its clear waters and seclusion make it a favorite spot for spending the night.

DAY 7 - FRIDAY - KISEBUKU BAY

This morning cross the Gulf of Gokova to the pine-clad Bay of Kesibükü. Take advantage of the calm morning hours, sailing smoothly along the Gokova shores. Opt for a stop at Orak Island. Late afternoon come into the Bodrum harbor, or continue to the attractive bay of Ada Bogazi for night.

DAY 8 - SATURDAY

Disembark after breakfast.

Please Note:

Route applies according to weather changes at the discretion of the captain.

Flas VII

The luxury sailing yacht M/s Flas VII is designed to sleep a maximum capacity of 17 passengers, with 1 grand master & 3 master cabins with king size beds & 1 master cabin with a queen size bed, 1 cabin with a double and twin bed ideal for a couple with a young child or for 3 kids to share, and 2 cabins with twin beds. It is ideal for large families or groups of friends with both couples and singles. Her ancient design is complemented by spacious fore, side and aft decks, up to date nautical equipment, outdoor dining facilities, cushioned lounging areas, sun mattresses, tenting to protect from the sun. The elegant interior features 8 cabins with high ceilings, a/c, generous storage space, and a roomy “en suite” bathroom with toilet, shower, sink and vanity. The interior also has wide corridors, and a salon (living room) with a stocked bar, cushioned seating areas and a table for indoor dining. Cuisine on board a gulet is a pleasure. A skilled chef, whose expertise ranges from haute cuisine to regional specialties, guarantees satisfaction for even the most discriminating palate. Seafood is served Mediterranean style, and organically grown fresh herbs, vegetables, and fruits of the season ensure the finest flavor.

Swimming off from or just dreamily floating around the yacht is certainly one of the most enjoyable experiences of your voyage. Additionally, you can sail, water ski, snorkel, kayak, fish, play board games, cards, or even go on moderate to strenuous hikes with the captain. Other activities can also be arranged, such as parasailing, jet skiing, scuba diving, paragliding, plus numerous additional water sports (at extra cost). Naturally, relaxation is a key part of the voyage, and we offer a library of magazines and books to peruse. A DVD library and DVD player is also on board stocked with film classics, children’s, and foreign films. The stereo system has indoor and outdoor speakers and iPod connections for even more personalized listening pleasure. 

Shore excursions along the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts are fantastic opportunities to experience sights and sites otherwise not so easily accessed. Combining Turkey’s Turquoise Coast and the nearby Greek Dodecanese Islands offers two different cultures and extensive outings choices that easily meet individual or group interests. Both have lively resorts, traditional sleepy villages, authentic local cuisine, sightseeing, shopping, nightlife, and ancient site explorations. Some trips require vehicles, while others are walks or optional hikes. Guides can also be booked or the captain will ably help you explore on your own. Of course, you may also decide to stay aboard and just relax. One of the best sides to luxury yacht (gulet) voyages is the freedom to enjoy your own preferences.

Luxury Turkey gulet cruise to The Hisaronu Gulf

"A most amazing week spend on a beautiful boat. We cannot speak too highly of the attentiveness and professionalism of Captain Tok and his crew, the wonderful food, the amazing scenery, and overall cleanliness and comfort of the the boat……… Our every need was catered for, and everything seems to be done without disturbing the peace and tranquillity we were there to enjoy. Our trip was made even more memorable by our lovely fellow passengers! We bonded very quickly, and are in fact talking of another Gulet cruise together sometime in the future. The booking process was smooth and straight forward and the pre- departure material provided was useful and relevant. It was also good to have the representative from the cruise line meet with us prior to departure and on our return. To sum up, a truly memorable and wonderful experience. Thank you.

Julie and Joelle
