Marmaris most significant place of historic interest is its castle, which dates back to 1577.

You will be briefed about the cruise and boat, after breakfast, before making your way towards the Ekincik Gulf. From here you can embark on an optional tour of Dalyan. If you go on the tour you will be taken by "piyade" (a type of small boat) to Caretta-Caretta (Turtle) Beach, where you will have a swimming break. Next you get to see the natural beauty of the delta, and ancient rock tombs, as you cruise along the river towards the mud baths. At the mud baths you can cover yourself from head to toe in mud that will leave your skin feeling rejuvenated. A visit to the fishing village of Dalyan completes the tour. Once the tour is finished you will be returned to the boat via a "piyade". The Gulf of Ekincik is where you will stay overnight and have your evening meal.
Today we will start to cruise towards the world renowned Gocek Gulf early in the morning. This is due to the wavy sea conditions at Disibilmez and Kurtoglu. Breakfast will be enjoyed whilst anchored in Adali Bay. The next stop will be Manastir (Monastery) Bay, which is also known as Cleopatra or Sunken Bath Bay. You will have lunch here, and can enjoy a swimming break or observe the beautiful submerged ruins of the ancient baths; hence it is referred to as Sunken Bath Bay by some people. Evening meal and overnight will be spent whilst anchored in Tersane Bay. During the Byzantine and Ottoman occupations this naturally sheltered harbour served as a shipyard.
