In June, I have found Rhodes to Turkey ferries with evening departures(preferably) and need your help, please. Are there any other companies other than Yesil Dalyan that runs Rhodes-fethiye route on Mon, Wed., Fri. leaving Rhodes at 4:30pm? I am concerned that if the ferry is canceled we will have to wait 2 days before the next ferry and that will put a damper on the rest of the trip plans, especially if I have prepaid for ferry, car, hotels everywhere. We prefer buying ferry tkts. online now to help with trip planning.
How reliable is Rhodes-Fethiye ferry run by Yesil Dalyan or any company in June? i have read some reports of Fethiye cancellations due to weather or ferry not selling enough tickets. If the Fethiye ferry is cancelled, are there good chances that the Marmaris ferry is also cancelled on the same day if weather is a factor?
I found another site http://www.e-ferry.gr that shows a route from Rhodes-Dalaman airport. Called them and they said they run a 9am ferry on the Flying Dolphin(Sealine Ltd.) from Rhodes to Marmaris and then bus to Dalaman airport all paid for on the same ticket. They said they do not run the Fethiye route due to rough seas and often canceled departures to Fethiye. They recommend the Marmaris ferry plus Dalaman airport bus transfer instead, since it is more reliable than the Rhodes-Fethiye route. Does this make sense? Has anyone tried this route by E-ferry? If yes, is the bus an express that goes directly from Marmaris port to Dalaman airport with the express bus waiting for ticketed ferry passengers at Marmaris port? Since we are traveling with kids, i want to try and make this trip as smooth as I possibly can.
We plan to rent a car wherever we land either Fethiye or Dalaman airport, so car rental reservations will depend on us getting to destination as planned.
Please suggest options. Thanks a lot.
