We booked a day out aboard Batin 2 having read all the good reviews on TripAdvisor. We weren't disappointed. We had a great time swimming and snorkelling in quiet coves, away from other boats. We got to see lots of turtles from the boat and whilst snorkelling. Captain 'Garlic' Ali was a fantastic host who made everyone feel very welcome... More

We (myself, husband and our 14 year old daughter) booked a boat trip with Garlic Ali on our recent visit to Kas. The price is a little more per person than some of the other boats in the harbour but you get what you pay for. What we got was a beautiful boat which stopped in very quiet bays away... More

Swimming with sea turtles, relaxing on the deck, and jumping off the boat - this was a perfect day out In the beautiful setting of the islands around Kas. Ali was the perfect host to this incredible day. He and his son Batin (the boat is named after him) made sure we had everything we could ask for - a... More

We went on a island boat trip with Ali's boat in August 2015. He is very friendly, helpful, energetic, and does his best to make sure everyone on his boat has fun. He chose a different route than many other boats so that we could enjoy each island without the crowd. We borrowed his underwater camera to take photos of... More

When we visited the harbour there were many companies but we chose the Garlic Ali boat tour a day trip around Kas based on TA reviews. Garlic Ali is a nice man and The boat looks very nice. Even if it's more expensive than the others we decided to sail with him. He took us to a nice bay and... More

We really wanted to do a boat trip of surrounding areas during our stay in Kalkan, but we were worried we wouldn't be able to because our youngest two children, aged 8 and 9, had only just learnt to swim a few days ago (with our youngest only just being able to manage a width of a small pool). Unsurprisingly,... More

Thank you Ali for such a fantastic experience, this was no ordinary boat trip. On our arrival he was so welcoming and made us feel relaxed. We had a full day out, stopping in four different secluded locations, we were able to snorkel in all of them and the children were able to safely dive from the boat. Ali cooked... More

Captain Ali may charge a little more than some of the boat trips heading out of Kas harbour, but what a fantastic day out you get for your money! We took our two boys, 8 and 10, on his island tour and all thoroughly enjoyed it. Ali made sure everyone on the boat had a great day, and served some... More
