Greek Waters Pilot
|While one may sail directly from Bodrum to Knidos
and Tekir cape in the course of one's Blue Voyage, it is also possible to
proceed by following the bay indented coastline of the gulf of Gökova.
Vessels setting out from Bodrum to visit Gökova pass Karaada,
famous for its hot springs and known in ancient times as Arkanessos, and
then Pabuç Cape and arrive at Kargicik Bay. Before reaching here
one sees a small island called Kistak that one may sail past on either
side though care must be taken of a reef to its north.
Kargicik is a large and fine bay. Yachts may anchor on its southern side. Taking a swim in its crystal-clear waters is a special delight.
Before Kargicik Bay is Orak Island on which there are two bays, one on the east and one on the north. The best anchorages are along the northwestern side.
Leaving here one passes Karaburun and reaches Alakisla Bay before which is Yildiz Island. One should sail close by the island and the mainland. One may anchor off the southwestern tip of the bay.
