Read the full Greece Charter Guide and Turkey Charter Guide.

A 10-day private yacht charter itinerary visiting the amazing locations in Fethiye, Marmaris and Kos.

Day 1:

Welcome aboard! Settle in and head straight out to the beautiful Bay of Fethiye. This is an enormous gulf filled with many bays, coves and islands, surrounded by mountains and pine forests. It is mostly a nature reserve.

Cruise towards Tomb Bay - a quiet and beautiful cove surrounded by cliffs dotted with ancient tombs. The hike up to the tombs on the far side of the bay is well worthwhile if only to stretch your legs after lunch and take in the fantastic views. Around the corner is Cleopatra's Bay, another magic spot where you can snorkel through the half-submerged ruins of Cleopatra's bath house.

Day 2:

Today cruise to Olu Deniz – a magnificent landlocked lagoon. It has a gorgeous long sandy beach and the opportunity to paraglide off Mt Baba, for the more adventurous.

Day 3:

Dalaman- River trip. The ruins of the ancient city Caunos are easily accessible and well worth exploring. It dates from 3000 BC and among the ruins is a 5000 seat theatre. The village is in the centre of a broad delta at the head of which lies the 7 km long sandbar called Iztuzu beach. The endangered Loggerhead Turtle has turned here for hundreds of years to lay its eggs.

Day 4:

Today head to Marmaris for a little action. The Bay of Marmaris itself offers a unique and protected anchorage surrounded by pine covered hills. The town of Marmaris is a busy town bustling with activity, shops, markets and nightlife.

Day 5:

Today head to Bozburun Bays. Bozburun is a small fishing town in the area with lovely waters and great anchorages ideal for relaxing and enjoying time on the water toys.

Day 6:

Cruise today towards Datça - one of those rare places where nature and history are in harmony. Situated between the well-known holiday centers Marmaris, Bodrum and the Greek islands of Rhodes and Kos, the Peninsula has retained its own charmingly original characteristics. This area dazzles the eyes with its peerless natural beauty, extremely clean water and virgin coves. Half of the Datça Peninsula faces the Aegean Sea, while the other half faces the Mediterranean. Strabon, the geographical scientist, defined it with the words “God will send His beloved to Datça, if He wants to grant a long life”. In addition to all these beauties, the peninsula has ruins of the oldest settlements.

Day 7:

Clear customs and head into Greek waters with the first island stop as Simi. This has one of the most beautiful harbours in Greece. On either side of a steep-sided fjord rise tier upon tier of houses, some white, some pastel yellow, but virtually all with neo-classical pediments - a reminder that 100 years ago this was one of Greece's most prosperous islands. The coastline of Symi alternates between steep rocks and sand and is interrupted by little coves.

Day 8:

Enjoy another day around beautiful Symi.

Day 9:

Cruise to the island of Nisyros - a quiet place that fascinates and charms visitors with its strong colourful character, the dark brown of its volcanic earth, the white of its houses and the deep blue of its sea. Nothing disturbs the silence of the island, which gives it a mysterious charm that remains with visitors who almost always fall in love with Nisyros and cherish its memories

Day 10:

Head to Kos, the bustling center of the northern Dodecanese. This island combines tourist infrastructure and nightlife which picturesque landscape and lush green hills. It is best known as the birthplace in 460 B.C. of Hippocrates, father of medicine. Don't miss the ancient, gnarled plane tree in Kos Town which is said to be the oldest tree in Europe, where Hippocrates once taught his students. Until the 11th century B.C., Kos took part in the Trojan War, became a major naval power and later with Rhodes settled colonies in southern Italy, or Magna Graecia. Find remnants of Kos' glorious past in the archaeological museum and throughout Kos Town, including ruins of the portico, the ancient agora, the Roman baths and the gymnasium of Xystos.

Day 11:

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast and prepare to disembark by midday
