map Dodecanese islands
is a rough guide to your week to the Greek
islands North Dodecanese
1: Embarkation, welcome drink and
program briefing in Bodrum harbor.
Boarding starts at 15:30 from Bodrum Harbour.
Guests who arrive early may leave their luggage at
the Barbaros Yachting Office. 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 'Castle of Saint Peter'.
It is one of the best preserved pieces of
architecture with a history that dates back to the
Middle Ages. Dinner and overnight stay in the
harbor or at a nearby cove.
Day 2: Cos ( Kos )
Whilst you have breakfast, we will do paper work
at customs and cruise to Kos Island. Asclepion,
known to be the birth place of Hippocrates, 'the
Father of Medical Sciences', is located here. All
the East- Mediterranean 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. You may take a swim in Lambi
Beach which is very close to Kos Harbour. 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.
We will cruise to the beautiful island of Leros.
Leros is a mountainous, green island with high
cliffs and many small bays and villages. After a
swimming break in Xerakampos, we will anchor at
Lakki Harbour or Agia Marina Port located in east.
You should visit Platanos the main city of Leros
with steep stairs, narrow streets, and flower
gardens. From Platanos you can take the steps
leading up the Castle of Leros climbing 300 steps!
Rent a bike or explore this island by foot.
We will cruise to Patmos Island early in the
morning. We will have a swimming stop in a bay
around the island. Patmos is not a big island, but
it is one of the best known. It was here St. John
had his vision and wrote the apocalypse, and this
is why Patmos is sometimes called "The Jerusalem
of the Aegean". The Monastery of St. Johns towers
above the capital, a village called Chora, and the
whole island breathes of faith and devotion.
According to mythology, Patmos was a present from
Zeus to his daughter Artemis, goddess of hunting
and young women. She was worshipped here in
antiquity, and the monastery of St. John was built
on her temple. After breakfast we may have a walk
through the monasteries. Our yacht will stay
overnight in Patmos Port.
We will set sail to Lipsi Island. We have a
swimming stop in one of the many small islands in
front of Lipsi. On Lipsi Island there are
beautiful sandy beaches, like Platis Giolos with
its crystal green waters. On the small natural
port is the capital, with its white houses and its
beautiful square, where you can find numerous
taverns, cafeterias and restaurants. On the island
the church of the Catopanaghia constructed in the
770d.c deserves a visit, along with the church of
We will take a swimming stop in a beautiful bay
around the Kalimnos Island. We are going to enter
Pothia Harbour which is the capital. The islander
ensured their lively hood with sponge diving for
centuries. There are nice beaches such as
Massouri, Mirties and Vlyhadia around the Island.
7: Turgutreis - Karaincir - Bodrum
We will return to Turkey through Turgutreis Port.
We will have a swimming stop at Karaincir on the
way back to Bodrum.
We will be staying in Bodrum Harbour for dinner
and our final overnight stay.
We will leave the boat with precious memories by
10:30 after breakfast.
note that this is only a rough guide and can be
varied to suite requirements. Also note that the
route may vary slightly, depending on weather
conditions and time available, at the Captains
places you will see on the itinerary Dodecanese
Among other beautiful stops, here is the chance to
visit the birthplace of Hippocrates and take a
trip round the historical sites of the town, the
Temple of Dionysus, the Asclepeion and the tree
under which Hippocrates Oath was composed are just
a few. This island is rich in archaeology
including Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and
Venetian sites. Despite the amount of tourists in
the summer you can still get away, though a good
guidebook like Lonely Planet is recommended.
The main port of Laki is one of the best examples
of Art Deco Architecture. It was designed by
Mussilini's architects in 1923, though in defiance
of the dictator, the capital was moved above to
the village of Platanos. It is also the base for
sailing trips to the coast of Turkey and the other
Leros island, this little paradise situated in the
Aegean sea, a place where visitors can relax, to
have a very nice swim, to have a very good meal,
or to have a crazy night partying.
The goddesses of antiquity, who were distinguished
for their beauty, chose illustrious sites to build
their palaces. This is also what ARTEMIS did, the
goddess of hunt. She chose an extremely beautiful
island, lying in the blue waters of the Aegean,
with vegetation, She chose LEROS, a truly divine
Spongefishermen's island. The main port of Pothia
is lined with cafes and as home to Greece's
spongefishing fleet is a working town. There is a
sponge museum there too. There are resort beaches
around the island and several other small ports
and towns worth visiting. Kalymnos is connected by
an almost daily boat from Pireaus to the other
major islands of the Dodecanese chain and also a
ferry and hydrofoil to Samos.
is a spectacular island with great beaches and
landscape, this is where the Apocolypse of John,
or Revelations was written. The main town of Skala
caters to the many people who arrive on cruise
ships but is still a comfortable enough place to
base yourself to see the rest of the island. A
place you have to visit is the monastery of Saint
John the Theologian above Skala and the Monastery
of the Apocalypse built around the cave where John
had his vision of the end of times. A popular
island with spiritually minded people, there is no
denying the feeling of sacredness here.
. Cabin Charter
Let's be honest
about air-condition on gullets
There is nearly none of the gullet
charter-companies who tells you the truth about
the use of air-conditition on Gulets. Yes, this
Gullet has AC. But
on a boat the AC can only run when the generator
is on, or in a harbor when connectet to 220 Volt.
Mainly you are in anchorbays, often next to a
neighbor, who doesn't like the noise of your
generator and you wouldn't like it either during
the night for example.
So most of the gullets (like we), have come to a
gentlemens agreement not to disturb eachother - AC
can be used on the most of the boats up to 4 hours
per day - in the morning or at night to cool down
Cabin Charter - general
All tours which are
offered here on this page take place on a STANDARD GULLET, a traditional Bodrum-built Yacht.
This yachts are up to 28 meters length and
accommodate between 12 and 18 guests in 6 to 9
cabins. The cabins have
en-suite WC & showers. (Hot & cold). There
is a music set, VHF Radiotelephone and a dinghy on
each yacht, and of course air condition. The Crew consists of a captain,
cook and a deckshand.
We advice you to give us your
mobile phone that we stay in contact to give you
captain's number and boat location.
The crew aboard our Gulets and yachts often do not
have a foreign language mastered, but they almost
always know a few ’every-day’ phrases and are able
to understand almost all requests.
