The chance to embark upon the briney, in a vessel captained by the splendidly ycleped Captain Garlic Ali, was one which we could not refuse. And right pleased we were to do so, for the most relaxing day was spent snorkelling in the crystal-clear Mediterranean, alongside numerous fish, several turtles and one rash octopus, hotly pursued by our good captain's...

This is our 6th year in Kas and every year we head out for what is always our best day with Captain Ali on Batin 2! So good this year we went twice. The boat is clean and spacious with great food but it is Ali's hospitality that makes this so special. Thank you again Ali and see you next... More

This is the second year we have visited Kas and gone out with Ali on Batin 2. It was so good we had to go twice this year!! Ali's boat is clean and spacious. The food is delicious but the best bit is the wonderful friendly hospitality on board. Ali finds perfect spots to stop every time and makes the... More

We took Batin 2, out to sea with Capt Garlic and his son Batin 3 times during a 10 day holiday. Myself, my 7 year old and 17 year old were on holiday with a group of friends totalling 8 people. The boat was spacious, facilities clean and the sailing and tour of the coast of Kas was delightful. Would... More

We have chartered Batin 2 on several occasions over the last few years. The Captain and his son (predictably called Batjn!) provide a friendly and efficient service on a modern boat with good food. The boat is good for groups of up to 12, although we have generally been six to eight. It is based in the old marina in... More

Batin 2 was recommended by a work colleague and it did not disappoint. We were 2 families, 7 people in total. Ali designed a tour of the small local islands to suit our brief. The food was great. all very relaxing. Look no further if you want a small boat tour.

We had a great day. Our second boat trip from Kas. Capt Garlic took us to some really wonderful bays, free from other boats and we saw numerous turtles and were able to swim near to them. The food was delicious. We went with another family and a couple making a party of 10.

Our 3rd boat trip in Kas and captain Garlic didn't disappoint. We were two families with mixed age children and had an absolutely great time. Nothing was too much trouble and when we asked to go to remote coves where others weren't - Cpt Garlic took us to some gorgeous bays where we were lucky enough to see turtles swimming... More

This is our 4th year to Kas and after our first trip with Ali in 2011 we have never looked anywhere else! We have had at least two trips each year on the small Islands tour and Ali has made each trip special. With a maximum of 12 people on each trip the experience is about peace and tranquility. We...
