Bodrum peninsula coastline boat trip recommendations

My husband and I will be staying in Torba in early September. We have been to Turkey many times but this is our first trip to Bodrum.

Can anyone suggest a boat trip for sight seeing rather than swimming or snorkeling? I'd like to see as much of the Bodrum peninsula coastline as possible without utilising time for 'swimming stops' and ideally I would prefer to arrange and book before we travel.

Alternatively does anyone know of an excursion by road (or a dolmus/bus?) that will take us around the peninsula so that we can visit the various towns and villages in the region?

Many thanks.

We have stayed inTorba the last 3 years,only boat trips I know of is the ones with all the swim stops..We just get the dolmus into Bodrum it takes only 10 mins then catch another dolmus to other resorts around the peninsula,we find this very easy to do..You can also catch a dolmus up on the top road in Torba going in the opposite direction from Bodrum to Gundagon which we have done,had the morning there and then got another dolmus from there to Yalikivak and spent the afternoon there and then got the dolmus back from there into Bodrum then the dolmus back to Torba,they are very cheap and easy to use..

Have a great holiday

You would most likely need to hire a private boat for the day to see the coastline without the snorkel/swim stops. You could probably arrange this with one of the local boats in Torba harbor, but I don't know of any operators who offer this cruise with an advance booking.

Does anyone have recommendation for boat day-trips either to a Greek island, or sightseeing/swimming, or just 1/2 day of sailing? Do most boats go out of bodrum town? Any from bitez?

You can book a boat trip out of Bitez when you get there, they go out every day.
