COACH ITINERARY

DAY 1: Bodrum

Getting straight down to business, this show kicks off in the coastal town of Bodrum within the nest of our traditional Turkish gulet, no less. Gulet is a sailing boat, which looks like it's straight out of Instagram. This will be perfect for lots of boat jumping during our swim stops. After we've settled in and enjoyed a pow-wow over dinner, you're free to check out Bodrum's great nightlife. Just try to make it back before we set sail tomorrow morning...

DAY 2: Bodrum to Cokertme via Orak Island

Bodrum
Wave goodbye to the Turkish harbourside, it's time to get salty! Our first journey at sea this morning will take us from the arms of Bodrum and into the pristine Gulf of Gokova.
Orak Island
The drift to Cokertme just can't be done without a stop on Orak Island. Bikini up and get ready to soak up some sunshine and saltwater - the ocean here is crystal clear. 
Cokertme
The journey here will be just as good as the destination, with the daybeds onboard the boat creating holiday vibes aplenty.
