Route Fethiye - Rhodes - Seskli - Symi - Fethiye
Bus transfer from Dalaman airport to Fethiye Harbor. The captain and his crew will welcome you aboard with a drink or cocktail and introduce you to the boat. You will have dinner and spend the night in or near Fethiye Harbor. You can explore charming Fethiye, or for those of you who really want to be pampered, we can arrange a Hamam, a traditional Turkish bath. In the SPA Wellness Center you will get a total body scrub and a wonderful soap massage, ending with a 30 minute full-body massage. When you are finished, you will feel like a newborn baby.
After breakfast, we set course towards the 12 Islands in the gulf between Göcek and Fethiye. After lunch we sail to Aga Limani Bay. We can take a 20-minute walk to a little house in the middle of nowhere. The woman who lives there with her husband and child, bakes her own bread and earns a little money selling this to the passing boats.
After breakfast and swimming, we set course towards the Greek island Rhodes. When we arrive there you will have plenty of time to stroll around the ancient city with its old city walls. The little alleys, shops, and terraces are very nice to visit and everything has a nice, relaxed atmosphere. We will have dinner and spend the night in the harbor of Rhodes.
Today we will explore Rhodes on a jeep safari (costs about €.30,00 p.p., not including entrance fees and lunch). You can get a real feel of Greek life in this rural area. We will visit Butterfly Valley, where you can walk to in about 1km. You can see thousands of butterflies here. We continue our jeep safari over unpaved roads through the beautiful countryside, passing little villages. On the way, we will stop for lunch. After lunch we will drive to Lindos, a marvelous village situated between a picturesque bay and an ancient Acropolis. You can visit the medieval castle (via foot or donkey). You can then take an evening dip in the water and gaze at the stars before bed.
After breakfast, we will sail to Seskli Island, where we can swim by the Symi shore. In the evening you can go and explore the island and enjoy the beautiful illuminated windmill, church and a visit to Panormitis monastery.
The beautiful island of Symi is great for photographers-You will have plenty of time to take snapshots of so many interesting scenes! After lunch and swimming we will set course to the other side of the island, the town Symi, which is build into the hill side. Big stairs connect the lower and upper parts of Symi and there are many little alleys and old ruins. We will spend the night in Symi Harbor- You can go out for the evening and enjoy the atmosphere of this authentic and beautiful place. The small town of Symi is truly one of the treasures of the Mediterranean. Well maintained, pastel-colored houses mostly built in the 19th century are placed round the harbor reminding one of an amphitheatre. The night is best spent in one of the authentic taverns or in one of the bars.
We set course for Turkey, and after lunch and swimming, we arrive in Fethiye Harbor. In the evening we will visit the fish market, where we will eat in one of the little outdoor restaurants and eat the wonderful, fresh fish- if you don’t eat fish, there are many other choices. You can also go to one of the many bars or terraces in Fethiye.
Our lovely week together is coming to an end. In the morning after breakfast, we say our goodbyes. Our transfer bus will take you to the airport or to your hotel.
At the start of your journey the captain will inform you about the travel route. We can never give you the exact timing of the route as this depends on the currents and the wind, so it is possible to arrive later or sooner in a certain place. Decisions about changing the route are always made by the captain.
