The archipelago is made up of 160 islands and islets, many of them uninhabited. They have had a colorful history and have been occupied by the Ottoman Turks as well as the Italians in the second world war. They are the sunniest corner in Greece.
Its crystal clear waters, sandy beaches, important archaeological finds, unique hamlets, imposing Byzantine and medieval monuments are all waiting to be discovered.

This page focuses on the islands from Kos to Leros.

Cruises start in the Turkish port of Yalikavak and finish in Bodrum to satisfy Greek charter regulations which allow only Greek flagged vessels to charter in GR waters. This does meant that there is no tax added to the charter.
Yalikavak is just 1 hour from Bodrum international airport which is served daily with flights from Istanbul. It is also a day sail away from Kalimnos, our first Greek destination. Currencies are Euros for Greece and Turkish lira for Turkey. Credit cards are widely accepted.
