I cannot recommend this boat and captain highly enough! We booked this from the reviews on tripadvisor and were not left disappointed. Amazing food, lovely quiet secluded bays away from the main areas where the main 'big boats' of tourists were and Captain Garlic Ali who genuinely goes the extra mile to make your trip memorable. Only 6 on our... More

Stood at Kas harbor looking at all the boats offering trips I immediately saw Batin 2. Not only was it the one I found here on trip advisor but it stood out for its pure quality. captain Garlic assured the best and my God did he deliver. Only 12 people aboard and after settling onto my lovely sunbed we set... More

A really great day - we loved it! The captain is very friendly and helpful and made a great lunch. He chooses places which are less busy and takes a maximum of 12 people on the boat. The highlight of the day - and the holiday so far- was swimming with the turtles. We were taken to an area where... More

We were in Kas for a week and we took Ali Captain's tour since we were avoiding the crowded tours we choose the Batin boat and we are so happy with our decision. The price sounds a bit expensive but at the end you get to have a wonderful private tour with amazing food and great fruits in the afternoon.... More

If you're looking for quiet and crystal clear but not crowded places to swim or dive or just to see, Captain Garlic Ali must be your choice. Very experienced captain, incredible sweet stuff (actually his adorable daughter) , aaaand of course the most delicious meals you can have on a boat trip all made by captains wife. If you decide...

We have done several trips with Ali. He always knows the best spots for snorkelling and swimming. It's very relaxing on the boat and the food is excellent!! Every time you go with a trip you come back with new friends because of the relaxing sphere and nice family. A must do when you are in Kas!

We surely enjoyed our trip with Ali and his son Batin who were great hosts. We were just 9 passengers on board and had a fantastic time chatting, swimming, sun bathing and eating (some of the best food of our entire holidays, homemade and also some freshly grilled fish and chicken). When we met turtles whilst our swimming break, Ali... More

We are are family of four; it's our first visit to kas and so we wanted a boat trip to remember- captain 'garlic' and his son did not fail to deliver! They made an effort to take us to quiet bays without all the other boats, the lunch was amazing with fish and chicken being barbecued and the huge selection... More

When you go on a boat tour with Batin, you will get addicted to it! This year, I had my second trip with this amazing captain and his son. The bays we went to are so beautiful, peaceful and quiet. Grilled fresh fish with green salad and diffent types of homemade mezes made everything better. Highly recommended!! I'm looking forward... More
