We are in Kas for 4 days and naturally we wanted a day on the water, and Batin 2 with Captain Garlic Ali was the perfect partner for that. Beautiful boat in mint condition, superb service onboard including a tasty lunch with grilled fish and chicken + countless local dishes, great. The fact that Ali speaks English just makes the...

Captain Ali and his wife wife Fatima made our day trip one of the most memorable trips we ever did. Everything from the spotless boat to the boat load of food was perfect. We had a 18-month old baby in our group of 11 people (all family) and Fatima and Ali played with the baby so much that she preferred... More

A really great laid back way to spend a day or two. I was not keen to travel in the bigger, more crowded boat out of Kas. Ali aka Kaptan Garlic! was fantastic, great food and fair priced alcohol. So good I returned for a second trip to Kekova the next day. Kas is one of the nicest places on... More

Our day with Captain Ali was one to remember. Captain Ali was very hospitable and made our day with him special. A sincere gentleman with a great sense of humour. Fabulous day, don't hesitate just book, you won't regret it. Danny & Dagmara

When you walk throughout Kas harbour we'll be offered several boat tours. We chose Batin Boat Tour and found it a good choice since they gather few people for the ride. The captain, ALI, is a excellent host and cooks a great fish at lunch time. His ten years old son, BATIN (the name of the boat) is a very... More

I'll keep it short and sweet. we chose captain garlic and batin 2 because of trip advisor and weren't disappointed. We had a fantastic day in which we ate fantastic food, swam in beautiful coves away from other boats. We even had time to rescue a stranded boat which was brilliant!! Two words 'Ice cream!' A must if your in... More

We were introduced to Ali by my brother-in -law Ray, who had experience of trips with Ali. We had 2 boat trips on Batin2, and had a FAB time, his humour and attention to his guests is second to none. The lunch he also served up was DELICIOUS. He was particular in where he stopped the boat, so we could... More

For fun, pure relaxation and superb value it's hard to think of a better way to spend a day in Kas than cruising the bays and islands in the company of Captain Garlic Ali aboard the immaculate Batin 2. This was our third cruise and just as enjoyable as the previous two. Ali remembered us immediately and was genuinely delighted... More

My girlfriend and I loved our first time so much, that we went again the same week. Captain Ali takes great personal care of all his passengers, taking you on an unforgettable tour through the Kas archipelago and several secluded coves. There, away from the busy beaches, we had the opportunity to swim around at a leisurely pace and explore... More
