Getting from Izmir to Rhodes and back to Istanbul

We are taking the Rick Steves tour to Turkey that ends on October 10. Our flight back to the US departs from Istanbul on the 15th of October. We would like to spend approximately 3 days on Rhodes, but I am having trouble finding out how to do that. We know we can get to Rhodes by ferry on the 10th from Bodrun, but there is no ferry service back to Bodrun on the 14th. Airt travel also seems to be limited as well. Advice anyone?

There should be Rhodes-Marmaris ferry service every day. Skyscanner indicates several flights by Pegasus Airlines from Dalaman airport (Google suggests http://www.marmarisairporttransfers.info/ for the equivalent of €30) to Istanbul Sabiha (secondary) airport. There is also bus service from Marmaris, but that could take a long time to reach Istanbul.

This is the company you need. Yesil Marmaris Lines operates from Marmaris and from Bodrum. If I were you, I would go from Bodrum and return to Marmaris so you could see Marmaris as extra. There are ferries from Fethiye too.Or dont worry about returning Istanbul from Rhodes because you need to take bus or flight from Marmaris or from Bodrum to Istanbul which will cost you too.

You can fly from Rhodes to Istanbul with Aegean Airlines. You can save time or maybe if you have long stopover in Athens for connection flight, you can see Athens.
Good luck.
