Dikili

As Pilot. Very crowded with active fishing vessels, mostly day-boats diving for sea-cucumbers to be airlifted to China.

We berthed between heavy steel trawlers. We found a HM in the chay shop near the coop fish counter; TL50 per day, "no problem". We departed for a night in Bergama. On return our neighbours had moved round us; light scrapes to our bows. Everyone very friendly and helpful, to us and each other.

In short, everyone finds a berth, generally rafted multiples deep, and everyone happily moves anyone's boat as necessary.

For Bergama/Pergamon, take Dolmus or taxi 1km to Otogar (bus terminus), thence minibus, every 30 mins, journey 30 mins.
