Brothers Osman and Adem Yildiz and their wives (Zeynep and Ilkay) always provide an excellent day out on both their boats. It is adviseable to book in advance if possible or go down to the harbour in the evenings when they come in from their day trips. The food is authentic Turkish cuisine at its best with fresh produce daily.... More

A wonderful day trip, even though curtailed because weather turned windy and we missed several swimming stops. Captain Osman and his wife are fantastic, extremely friendly and attentive. Lunch was incredible and certainly of restaurant quality, lovely fruit and afternoon tea. At 50 TL pp it is an absolute bargain. Our first trip to kalkan but we are certainly returning... More

We booked on Yildiz 2 via email ahead of leaving for Turkey to ensure we could get a trip and then went along to the harbour a day or so beforehand to get our ticket. We shared the boat with a great group of people - and the first swim stop certainly broke the ice. refreshments were offered and accepted... More

We booked on Yildiz 2 the hosts were friendly and attentive. Food was amazing and delicious. Plenty of stops to swim in the beautiful turquoise waters. Thoroughly recommend this day out, we enjoyed it so much we went twice. Good value 50 lira each which includes lunch, well worth it!

Run by brothers Adem and Osman and their wives, yildiz boat trips have that personal touch which just makes them fantastic days out! We booked for 6 of us before we flew out and had a very quick response from Osman and were all booked on. Having been last year we know how busy and popular they can be. It... More

Had a fantastic day on Yildaz 3. Captain Adam looks like Rodger Federer! Great food. Lots of space. Booking essential. We were a group of 12. Loved it.

Went on day trip with Yildiz 3, Captain Adam and his lovely wife and shipmate. Great fun, terrific views and swim breaks and excellent food. Would love to try. Moonlight tour and hope to go out again this week. Colette and Iain x

Adem and his family are the most welcoming family and hosts, a day out on Adems boat is one of the most enjoyable relaxing days you will spend whilst in Kalkan, we always book his boat for our own private day or you join a party booking, the day flies in as you are taken to several coves for swimming...

We did a trip with both boats this year. Great day out on both occasions - we even made it to Mouse Island this year. Food was good on both boats - company was good as well. Everyone has their favourites and of the 2 boats Yildiz 2 was ours but there's nothing wrong with either of them! See you... More

I say the best day out but we actually had an overnight trip on Yildaz 2 and it was the best trip of our whole holiday! I enquired by email over the winter months and received very quick replies from Captain Osman. I had always wanted to sleep overnight on a gulet type boat along the Turkish coastline but was... More
