Blue Voyage

The Blue Voyage is one of uniqueness. The Aegean is renowned for having the most amazing historical and ancient sites in the world. Originally called the “Blue Road” by the many fishing, cargo and tradesmen of the sea that used it. It is now dominated by pleasure cruises and renamed the “Blue Voyage” for it’s turquoise coast. The Blue Voyage is the most popular holiday to be had in Turkey because it covers so many places on one trip.

The Blue Voyage covers such a large area that we split them into two because the average holiday of one or two weeks would not cover such a distance. At one end lies Kusadasi in the Aegean Sea and the other is Antalya in the Mediterranean Sea with some 350 nautical miles in between.

Starting off with the transfer from the airport depending on your destination, you will be greeted on arrival by your captain, cook and crew
( 2 or 3 ). You’ll meet the other guests on board, make your introductions and settle in. The accommodation is a basic comfortable twin or double cabin with shower and wc.

Choosing which bed to sleep in on arrival is probably the only difficult decision you’ll have to make whilst on board. Besides the normal reasons for travelling by boat, like swimming, sunbathing, eating, drinking and sleeping are concerned, the rest will be engraved in your memories forever. Where else in the world can you be, where the sky is as blue as the sea and the sun shines 176 days a year ? Where history goes as far back as 8,000 Centuries BC ? Where you are waited on hand and foot and entertained by your crew?. Where you’ll be fed the most delicous meals your taste buds have encountered?.

The Blue Voyage!!!............Starts here.

The itineraries from Bodrum are endless, but a typical route could take you through the Gulf of Güllük to dozens of deserted bays with lush forests descending into rocky shorelines, and nothing but the sound of goats bells in the distance to await you. Just a few kilometres inland are the ancient sites of Didyma and Iassos, where you can visit once anchored. The next stop - Gokova has numerous bays each offering their own atmosphere with the seaside resorts being more crowded and lively. Gokova also has remains from the ancient island city Keramos, with the main attraction of Cleopatra’s beach. Rumoured to have been imported from Egypt for herself and her lover Anthony. The furthest south-west of Gokova are the remains of Knidos, once a great city in ancient times. Passing many secluded bays and deserted caves you can enjoy swimming, snorkelling and watersports or a spot of fishing for that evening BBQ the cook promised, should you catch something that day. Arrive at Datca and get your land legs back again. Noted to be one of three of the cleanest areas in the world, due to no industrialism. Datca is a quiet and picturesque town and has lovely restaurants, bars and craft shops.

Beyond the Gulf of Hisaronuis the popular resort of Marmaris which has some of the largest hotels and marina in the Aegean. Further along the coast is Iztuzu beach where the Loggerhead Turtle (Caretta-Caretta) nests. Along the river, small boats ferry visitors across the Dalyan estuary where you’ll see the famous ruins of Caunos and mud baths and hot springs can be enjoyed with great fun had by all.

The Gulf of Fethiye has the quiet and intimate town of Gocek on route and some of the most beautiful yachts in the harbor to be seen. Fethiye is itself a very large town and has a bustling port with many bays and islands surrounding it. South of Fethiye lies Olu Deniz (dead sea) where you can see the beautiful blue lagoon and nature reserve. Exploring the area around, there are the Lycian ruins of Xanthos and Letoon. Round to the east of Fethiye are the small towns of Kalkan and Kas. Both extremely picturesque with cobbled roads, dainty shops, restaurants and bars. Kekova is the next stop, where there’s a sunken city and an Ottoman Castle. The last stop is Antalya, one of Turkey’s largest and most popular resorts. The harbor is just outside the old town where many small roads all inter-link together revealing restaurants, bars and shops. On the main road, Hadrians Gate can be seen just outside the old quarter.

One thing is assured. Whatever your itinerary, the Blue Voyage will be the most picturesque, historical and pleasurable encounter you’ve ever experienced and your captain and crew will do their upmost to ensure it is the perfect holiday. Enjoy!!
