Day 1: Bodrum
Boarding starts at 03:30 PM from Bodrum Harbour. Guests who arrive
early can leave their luggage at the Barbaros Yachting Office. On
the first day, our boat will be anchored in Bodrum Port for dinner
and overnight stay. Bodrum has a history that goes back to the 12th
century B.C. The city which was called ‘Halicarnassus’ was the
birthplace of Herodotus; the ‘Father of History’ who lived in the
5th century B.C. The ‘Mausoleum’ of King Mausolus (350 B.C.) which
is one of the Seven Wonders of the World is in this city. The only
structure that survived from the Classical Era is the Amphitheatre.
It is one of the oldest theatres in Anatolia with a capacity of
13.000 guests, and is still hosting many shows and concerts for the
art-lovers of Bodrum. Another place that you should visit whilst in
Bodrum is the landmark of the city the ‘Castle of Saint Peter’. It
is one of the best preserved pieces of architecture with a history
that dates back to the Middle Ages. ‘Myndos Gate’ through which
Alexander the Great entered Halicarnassus is another place that you
should not miss.

suitable and sheltered enough to anchor for boats.

Cruise to Sedir (Cedrae) Island.
This unique island with its small beach and unbelievable

church), the amphitheatre with 1,500 guest capacity and some vaulted
historical buildings. You can walk around the wrecks of pillars with
antique writings on them or the ancient stones decorated with reliefs.

sand that can only be found in the deserts of Northern Africa.
According to myth, King Antonius brought the sand from Egypt via sea
for Cleopatra. Then our boat will sail to Karacasogut village for
