peninsula scattered with many small islands.
Our home port of Bodrum is a seaside resort only 45 minutes from the Greek Island of Kos. Archeological ruins and historic sites abound, & This truly is an
outstanding area for yachting enthusiasts. The ancient port is lined with palm trees and its centerpiece is her famous castle, built in the early 15th century by
the Knights of Rhodes.
Today BODRUM is regarded as one of the best holiday spots in the Mediterranean. There are ample possibilities for entertainment, foo& fun at our many
beaches, outdoor cafes, and restaurants, and the night life at charming local bars and taverns continues until the sun rises. Shoppers find our picturesque

|The "Blue Cruise" concept is identified with one of Turkey's most
beloved literary figures -
Cevat Sakir Kabaagacli.
Cevat Sakir, known as the "Fisherman of Halicarnassus," was exiled
to Bodrum in 1962 because of his political beliefs. He fell in love
with this area, & became curious about the cultural history of
He began to sail in a rented sponge diver's boat, called the
"Yatagan," deciding to rediscover the Aegean Coasts made immortal
by Homer. Thus, the "Blue Cruise" was born.
On today's Blue Cruise, we sail along the Bodrum and GÃ¶kova
coasts in southwestern Turkey. You can swim, fish or enjoy other
water sports in the pristine seas of uninhabited coves, & walk to
archaeological ruins accessible only by boat. It is a truly memorable
way to get close to the unspoiled character and culture of this
beautiful part of the world.
The port of Bodrum, ancient Halicarnassus, is a year-round resort
located at the juncture of the Aegean and Mediterranean seas. A
center for sailing, Bodrum is the site of the extremely
well-preserved Castle of Saint Peter. Built in the fifteenth century
by the Knights of Rhodes, the Castle now houses a renowned
museum devoted to underwater archaeology.
Since CaravanTurkey is located in lovely Bodrum, we are well
positioned to organize a famous "Blue Cruise" for you!
