Asclepion, known to be the birth place of Hippocrates, 'the Father of Medical Sciences', is located here. All the East-Mediterrenean people with health problems were treated in Kos (Istankoy).

Kos; the second largest island of the 12 islands (Dodecanese islands) has a very mild climate and very fertile lands. The island houses a 560-year-old tree, a 211-year-old fountain and a 290 km long beach. Kos is one of the islands with the best night life. Nafklirou, a street full of bars, is always crowded, colourful, and full of life.

Day 3: Nisiros - Tilos.

Early in the morning we will set sail to Nisiros. The volcano on Nisiros island- which means 'the place with figs'- in the Aegean Sea- erupted in 1422 and is still active. Nikea village located on the side of the crater is constituted with white streets and a mosaic-style square. You can take an optional bus tour to the crater which is still active and where you can see the gases coming from the underground. On the way back after, a short village tour and a lunch break; we will cruise to Tilos Island. For dinner and overnight stay, we will anchor in the port of this small tranquil island.

Day 4: Rhodes (Rhodos).

Cruising to Rhodes early in the morning. Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese Islands. The island is a very popular holiday place as it has one of the best-protected and the largest European Medieval city and has warm weather 300 days of a year. Rhodes has been a home for many civilizations; starting with the knights of St.John in the Middle Ages, then Ottomans and Italians; thus the island has a unique historical harmony and beauty.

The main port Rhodes is the Rhodes City which bears the same name with the island. The other very touristic areas of Rhodes island are; Lyndos and Kamiros. The city, which is still surrounded by 12 meter-thick city-walls, gives you the feeling of travelling back to Medieval times especially when you walk around its narrow, stone-paved roads. After dinner, our guests are highly recommended to enjoy a Rhodes night out.

Day 5: Simi (Symi).

We will set sail for Simi Island early in the morning and arrive at the Monastry of Panormitis located in the southern part of Simi. It is possible to visit the Monastery and the Museum on this well-protected and peaceful bay. After having a swimming break on the eastern shores of the island, we will anchor at the port early in the evening. You can see the shore-side with its neo-classical houses and the peripheral districts. You are going to adore Simi for its pine and oak forests and unique bays.

Day 6: Datça - Knidos (Cnidus).

We will get into Turkish waters from Datca. You can enjoy a short-walk on the shore while your captain deals with the customs procedures. We will sail to Cnidus after lunch. Cnidus was a developed city in science, art and architecture. Eudoxos, a very popular astronomer and maths professor; Dr. Euryphon; Polygontos, a poular painter; Skopas and Bryaksis of Faros, the most famous sculptors of the era.

Sostrates, the architect of Alexandrian light house -one of the seven wonders of the World-and Ktesias the doctor who saved the life of a Presian king from a disaster lived on this island. Dr. Euryphon and his students founded the second largest medical sciences school in Cnidus. The island also homes the largest sun clock of its time which was erected by Eudoksos. Knidos was the home for Aphrodite's monument and at those times the city was famous for brothels and became popular for sailors and Arabic tradesmen.

Day 2: Arabian Island - Bozukkale (Loryma).

While you have a breakfast, you will be informed about the cruise programme and then we will cruise for the Arabian Peninsula. The night will be spent in Bozukkale. In the historical city Bozukkale (Loryma), there is a castle which strectches out in a rectangle with its city walls and 9 temples. The name Bozukkale means 'crooked castle' and might be associated with the fact that one side of the castle is missing. Because of its geographical situation and the narrow port entrance, the port was also used by the Greek navy forces during the Pelepones Sea Battle. Karor, the Commander of Atina gathered all his ships here before the Cnidus War in 395 B.C., and Demetrios; the son of Antigonos used this port for the preparations before attacking Rhodes in 305 B.C.

Day 3: Dirsekbükü Bozburun.

After anchoring in Dirsekbükü, we will go to Bozburun. Bozburun is a small fishing town. This area was popular and suitable for sponge-diving but nowadays the people of the island are no more interested in sponge-diving as it is not worthy and is dangerous. In the last years sponge-diving is replaced by gulet tourism and Bozburun Gulets nowadays could take its place in this sector.

Day 4: Bencik - Datça.

Our first stop will be the Bencik Bay; which has a very narrow entrance but a unique view once you get inside. Bencik is located at the narrowest part of the peninsula that divides Hisarönü Gulf from the Gökova Gulf but it is closer to Hisarönü. In 550s B.C. the Cnidus people wanted to dig a tunnel in the narrowest land piece of the peninsula between the Hisarönü Gulf and the Gökova Gulf as a defence line against the Persians. That way they would make two peninsulas one island and the defense easier. They started with diligence and put a lot of effort; however, in the end they could not manage and the city was conquered by the Persians. We will sail to Datça to have dinner and spend the night.

Day 5: Symi (Simi).

Completing all paper work and formalities, we will cruise for the first stop on the Greek island Symi. You can see the shore-side with its neo-classical houses and the peripheral districts. You are going to adore Simi for its pine and oak forests and unique bays.
