Fethiye Turkey to Rhodes Greece Ferry

Hello can anyone tell me how long this ferry takes to get from Fethiye Turkey to Rhodes Greece? I found a ferry that leaves at 17:00 hours but not sure when it will arrive. Some info would be nice to hear from someone that has taken this route.
Thank you

I took a morning ferry. As I recall, it look a little over 1 1 1/2 hours on the departure but then for some reason, took 2 1/2 hours on the return. I did not venture too far into the Old Town of Rhodes City for fear of getting lost and missing the boat back. That part of Rhodes was mostly just tacky souvenir shops and tourist-oriented restaurants. In hindsight, I would skip it and spend that day exploring something else along the Turkish coast.

Rhodes has an amazing old town, it is one the best preserved medieval towns of Europe.
If MinnBeef wandered in the wrong places of Rhodes, that doesn't mean that others can't discover the beauty of it.

Sometimes i really ask my self what meaning these posts have...
OP is asking how to get to Rhodes and the advice is : i didn't see much of Rhodes, skip it and stay at the Turkish coast.

Sometimes is better not to say anything at all....

Gosh, you are just the touchiest thing any time someone makes anything other than a glowing commentary about Greece.

I have been to Athens, Delphi, Santorini, and a day trip to Rhodes Old Town. Santorini was spectacular. Delphi was very interesting and pretty. Athens...see the Parthenon and a couple of museums and then get out of Dodge. Old Town of Rhodes...for what one can see on essentially a 4 hour visit...I stand by my above assessment.

I just don't see any point in proposing to the OP not to visit the old town of Rhodes, especially when you didn't see it either...
