Ali was very matter of fact about his tours, and not in the least pushy,so we were quickly won over by his approach. Once aboard he quickly got into his stride and became a one man army. He soon shone as the friendly, joking host he very definitely is, bringing a sense of camaraderie to his multilingual 'crew'. He dealt... More

We booked with Captain Ali based on the ratings given on trip advisor. Ali was great fun and went to great lengths to ensure that we had an amazing trip. The boat is lovely and the food was quite simply some of the best that we ate during our holiday. The first trip we got to see flying fish, turtles... More

We had such a wonderful day!! We chose Ali based upon the reviews, but did not realize the important differences between many of the boats. We expected only subtle differences and chose Batin 2 based upon the reports of Ali's kind personality. While reports of his great personality are true (!!), we did not understand some of the additional benefits... More

My husband and I are perennial visitors to lovely Kas. Having tried a number of captains and their trips, we recommend Ali and his boat for a great day at sea with a fun, friendly atmosphere and delicious food. We now choose him every time!

Ali really works to ensure you have a great day. The lunch was delicious. The boat has snorkeling gear and a kayak included. Ali chooses swimming coves without crowds and with smooth water. We had much more fun than we expected. Would definitely do this again!

We did the island tour and we totally recommend ali and his boat. He wanted what we wanted, a quiet bay with no other tour boats around. The waters were crystal clear and warm. The food was great and ali and his son are lovely with great humor throughout the day.

The day my husband and I went sailing with Captain Ali to beautiful bays and coves could not have been more perfect. Captain Ali is full of personality and he is wonderfully hospitable. The boat is beautiful and very well taken care of. The food was excellent - his wife had prepared so many side dishes & salads, all of... More

Captain Garlic Ali was a fantastic host aboard his boat Batin 2. We spent the day cruising the coast, stopping off to swim in isolated coves. We were served a fantastic BBQ on board, with fresh fish and chicken. After spotting a turtle, Captain Ali took us to another area where he promised us lots of turtles, and we were... More

Our 4th trip with the legendary Garlic Ali on the immaculate Batin 2 was, yet again, a different experience to any that came before it. This time we had strolled along the harbour to book, smiling and politely declining the offers of other island tours, to be greeted with the customary "Hello Boss" (my wife), "Hello big boss" (me, inaccurately)...
