After you’ve unloaded your luggage and met up with your new crew, we’ll be on our merry way to Boncuklu Bay.

St Nicholas Island Ge’bye, Gemile! It’s been fun, but now we must move on towards Kaş. Firnaz Bay We’ll stop off here for breakfast and a good old swim in the sea. There’s some seriously splendid scenery to admire here, so make sure you dry off for long enough to get some salty snaps of the saucy sea. Kaş Let's take a break in Kas, this quaint seaside town known for its charming whitewashed houses and the 'Lion's Tomb', decorated with two statues of lion's heads. Try not to fall too heard over heels as you and your pride head out on the prowl Bayindir Bay Next we're taking a leisurely sail to Bayindir Bay where we'll park for the night. With gorgeous turquoise waters and white cliffs locking you in, you'll spend a fairytale-like evening with your crew! Accommodation: Sailing Yacht Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
