Yacht Charter in Turkey and a Prime Haven of Islands in the Aegean
The Mediterranean and particularly the Aegean regions of Turkey are filled with islands big and small – and what’s a yacht charter in Turkey without a bit of island hopping around? The waters are a total utopia of islands. However, Greece triumphs in the number of island choices. Fortunately, both countries are neighbors; therefore a fantastic yacht holiday can be organized to offer the best from both worlds.
Should your ideas for a holiday at sea require island hopping in the Greek Islands, then the most ideal places to begin your Turkey yacht charter vacation is either from the bustling harbor of Bodrum – the origin of Turkish gulets, or from the lively seaside city and the gulet heaven harbor of Marmaris. The Milas airport is approximately 40 minutes from the Bodrum harbor, while the Dalaman airport is about 90 km to the harbor of Marmaris – and airport transfers are included in the price of the private yacht rentals in Turkey.
Greek island hopping itineraries from Bodrum are available from the months of April right up until the end of October. A few choices to consider are the following routes:
- Kos Island – Gyali – Nysiros – Symi Island – Rhodes Island – Datca – Palamutbuku – Cnidus – Poyraz Harbour – Meteor Bay
- Kos Island – Pserimos – Leros – Patmos – Lipsi Island – Kalimnos Island – Karaincir
- Kos Island – Nysiros – Tilos – Rhodes Island – Symi Island – Datça – Knidos – Poyraz Bay
Island hopping gulet cruises from Marmaris offer this route: Arabian Island – Bozukkale (Loryma ) – Dirsekbuku – Bozburun – Bencik – Datca – Symi Island – Rhodes Island.
While you might think that these are what most yacht charter companies provide for choice, you can also choose from two other itineraries that are not so common, however, might effect the price of the gulet charter due to the distance in travel. This particular route begins from Marmaris, and includes destinations in both the Dodecanese and Cyclades. Then your yacht charter travels all the way south to the magnificent island of Crete. Just when you thought that there weren’t all that many islands to visit, this Mediterranean island hopping route, professionally designed, offer a whole different alternative to the norm.
Now if we choose to start our journey from the Aegean sea of Turkey, our embarkation would be Bodrum and we would journey across the Dodecanes, then further to the Cyclades and end our gulet cruise in the city of the Greek Gods, Athens. What an exciting experience this would be. You might even like to stay in Athens a bit longer to see the city sights too, after your Aegean island hopping vacation from Turkey.
So there you have it. A complete haven of islands to choose from in either the Mediterranean or the Aegean seas.
