These are equally gorgeous locations traditionally as effectively as visually.

Day 2 Arabian Island – Bozukkale (Loryma)
While you have a breakfast, you will be informed about the cruise programme and then we will set sail for the Arabian Peninsula. The night will be spent in Bozukkale. In the historical city Bozukkale (Loryma), there is a castle which strectches out in a rectangle with its city walls and 9 temples. The name Bozukkale means ‘crooked castle’ and might be associated with the fact that one side of the castle is missing. Because of its geographical situation and the narrow port entrance, the port was also used by the Greek navy forces during the Pelepones Sea Battle. Karor, the Commander of Atina gathered all his ships here before the Cnidus War in 395 B.C., and Demetrios; the son of Antigonos used this port for the preparations before attacking Rhodes in 305 B.C.
Day 3 Datca
After the breakfast we will hoist sail to Datca. Food and water are supplied for the boat. The city was founded by the Dors who came from Aegean Sea to the southern coast of Ionia in the 7th century B.C. The island has no humidity at all and has fresh air with plenty of oxygen. The historian Strabon has a rightful saying about Datca’s weather: God would send his beloved servants to Datca to live longer. According to a myth while the Spanish pirates were passing by the coast of Datca, they disembarked people with Hansen’s disease in Sariliman Bay and these abandoned people recovered from their disease with the help of the clean weather of Datca. You can explore Datca yourself or join the optional city tour. For dinner and overnight stay we will anchor in Datca or at a nearby bay.
Day 4 Aktur – Bencik
After breakfast we will set sail for Aktur. Then our first stop will be the Bencik Bay; which has a very narrow entrance but a unique view once you get inside. Bencik is located at the narrowest part of the peninsula that divides Hisaronu Gulf from the Gokova Gulf but it is closer to Hisaronu. In 550s B.C. the Cnidus people wanted to dig a tunnel in the narrowest land piece of the peninsula between the Hisaronu Gulf and the Gokova Gulf as a defence line against the Persians. That way they would make two peninsulas one island and the defense easier. They started with diligence and put a lot of effort; however, in the end they could not manage and the city was conquered by the Persians. Dinner and overnight stay will be at Bencik Bay.

There are so many myths about this reddish sand-path going from the shore to the inner parts of the sea. On a tiny island located in the bay, you can see the wrecks of an antique castle, a sign of an ancient city.
Day 6 Dirsekbuku – Bozburun
After anhoring in Dirsekbuku, we will go to Bozburun. Bozburun is a small fishing town.This area was popular and suitable for sponge-diving but nowadays the people of the island are no more interested in sponge-diving as it is not worthy and is dangerous. In the last years sponge-diving is replaced by gulet tourism and Bozburun Gulets nowadays could take its place in this sector.
