Cruises from Bozcaada
Bozcaada is an island (triangular, just 11km by 6km) lying 6 km off the mainland of Turkey, in the NE part of the Aegean Sea. Its Greek name is Tenedos, mentioned in both the Iliad and the Aeneid, and important in ancient times in guarding the Dardanelles to the north. Historically, it came under the control of many regional powers. Today most of its 2500 population are Turks.
The main industries are tourism, wine production and fishing. The island has been famous for its grapes, wines and red poppies for centuries. Its main attraction is the castle that overlooks the port, last rebuilt in 1815, illuminated at night, and with a view out to the open sea.
