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

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. 
The journey here will be just as good as the destination, with the daybeds onboard the boat creating holiday vibes aplenty. 

DAY 3: Cokertme to Seven Islands

After indulging in the crystal clear waters of Çamlı Koy (Pine Bay), it will be on to the postcard-perfect Seven Islands. 
Seven Islands
Here you’ll be free to roam the forests & swim with sea critters, stopping only for lunch aboard our boat. Tonight we’ll stay in Küfre, where we’ll grab some dinner & hike up a hill to see the sunset.

DAY 4: Seven Islands to English Harbour

Seven Islands
English Harbour is calling and we’ll be unable to tear ourselves away: we depart early this morning for the English port.
English Harbour
We’ll spend most of the day swimming & lapping up the beauty of English harbour. or you can opt in for a day trip to Dalyan. Tonight there’s a chance to check out the nightlife of Marmaris.

DAY 5: English Harbour to Longoz via Cleopatra Island and Ballisu

English Harbour
Sailing out of English Harbour early this morning we’ll arrive amidst the seashell shorelines & ancient mythologies of Cleopatra Island. 
Cleopatra Island
After soaking up the pristine seas that supposedly once cooled the actual Cleopatra, we’ll head for Ballisu.
In Ballisu, we’ll take tea and spend our time swimming.
We’ll anchor at Löngöz for an evening barbeque and a night sleeping under the Turkish stars. 

DAY 6: Longoz to Kisebuku via Ballisu and Mazi

Drifting on past Ballisu this morning, we’re headed for Kisebuku via Mazi.
With wild pirate antics set for the night ahead of us, we’ll take things easy by day in Mazi amongst the orange groves, and stock up on essentials from the market.
In this small fisherman’s village, we’ll mooch around the local markets and drift in & out of the sea for swims.

DAY 7: Kisebuku to Bodrum via Pabucburnu and Yaliciftlik

Today we'll sail to the village of Yaliciftlik where traditional Turkish carpets and foods are produced.
Pabuç Burnu
After absorbing the artisan side of the country we'll sail back to Bodrum for our last night together, enjoying party time or a Hammam spa to unwind.

DAY 8: Depart Bodrum

Team sobs and many hugs will conclude our Turkish sailing adventure shortly after breakfast. The only thing we can say to ease the pain is this: Contiki has something equally as wonderful going on in Croatia, go get involved.
