Depart from Datça, Marmaris or Bodrum


Sailing Chef departs from Datça, Marmaris or Bodrum. As such, there's always an airport or ferry close to one of our departure harbors.


After departure from the harbor we take you along the breathtaking coast of South West Turkey and some of the Greek islands. You will stay overnight in the harbor of the picturesque Greek island of Symi. Throughout your vacation we take you from bay to bay providing you the sensation of total freedom.

It is easy to expand your Sailing Chef blue cruise with a stay on one of the Greek islands, visit the worldly city of Bodrum or explore the gorgeous Datça peninsula. The peninsula is a picturesque oasis where the Aegean and Mediterranean Sea meet. The atmosphere is southern European and the people are welcoming and friendly.

The ancient Greeks believed that Datça was personally created by Zeus, so beautiful are the rocky outcrops and aquamarine colored waters. The geographer Strabo said of Datça:

"God sent his promised creatures to Datça for them to live longer."

Marmaris is a Mediterranean resort town along the Turkish Riviera (also known as the Turquoise Coast) with a busy, pebbly beach and long seafront promenade. It’s known for its lively nightlife on Bar Street, which is home to open-air clubs and music venues. Marmaris sits in a valley between pine-forested mountains and clear waters, which are popular sailing and diving destinations.


Bodrum is a city on the Bodrum Peninsula, stretching from Turkey's southwest coast into the Aegean Sea. The city features twin bays with views of Bodrum Castle. This medieval fortress was built partly with stones from the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, completed in the 4th century B.C. The city is also a gateway for nearby beach towns and resorts.


Datça is a port town in southwestern Turkey. It's situated on the narrow Datça Peninsula on the Aegean Sea. Eski Datça is an old neighborhood with stone roads and bougainvillea-covered walls. At the western tip of the peninsula are ancient Greek ruins at Knidos, a trading hub during Roman and Byzantine times. The site includes an amphitheater, a temple to the goddess Aphrodite and a 4th-century B.C. sundial.


Symi Greece is one of the most picturesque and charming islands of the Dodecanese island chain.

The most impressive spot on the island is hands down Symi port. The hill above the port is packed with crayon-like mansions which emit a fairytale-like charm. Not to mention that any corner of the town boasts a magnificent view of the Aegean Sea. The unique atmosphere of the port will bewitch you!
