BODRUM TO KOS
This morning you will have breakfast on board and be given a quick brief from the crew. Then it's time to get out of the harbour as we set off cruising bound for Kos. Kos is the second largest island of the Dodecanese Islands and is most famous for being the birthplace of the father of medicine, Hippocrates. Once we get settled in the harbour you have the chance to either take a quick swim at the beautiful Lambi Beach situated very close to Kos Harbour or you may like to go and visit the Asklepieion, which is a large healing temple from ancient times. We will spend the night at Kos and the island is well known for its nightlife. So after dinner on board you may like to head to Nafklirou, a street full of bars that is always crowded, colourful, and full of life. (B, L, D)
NISYROS TO SYMI
We set off early this morning where we cruise onto Nisyros Island. Here you will have time for a swim before there is an optional bus excursion to the volcano crater, which is still active today. Here you will get to witness the live gases and smoke coming from the ground; it is quite a spectacular sight. Later that afternoon it's time to cruise onto Symi Harbour where we will anchor down to spend the evening. On arrival to Symi you will be amazed by its shoreline with its neo-classical houses and the peripheral districts. Symi Island is always a favourite amoung guests as it's well known for its pine and oak forests and unique bays. Dinner will be served on board and then the night is yours. (B, L, D)
BOZBURUN TO RHODES
This morning it's time to cruise onto Rhodes. We will arrive in the afternoon and anchor down to stay overnight. On arrival you have the chance to join the optional old city tour. Or you may like to join in on the other excursion, the Lindos Tour. Lindos is still surrounded by a 12 meter thick city-wall which gives you the feeling of travelling back to Medieval times especially when you walk around its narrow, stone-paved roads. Please let your crew know if you would like to do either of these tours as they can arrange accordingly.
The main port of Rhodes is Rhodes City and has the same name as the island itself. Rhodes is one of the most popular islands in Greece thanks to its ancient medieval Old Town of the City of Rhodes that has been declared a World Heritage Site. Dinner will be served on the boat and then after dinner we highly recommend heading back out into town so you can really enjoy the colourful nightlife from ice bars and open air clubs in Lindos to Santana Music bars in the old town, there is something for everyone.
