After considering several trips along the harbour in Kas we plumped for Captain Ali's trip. After showing us around his immaculately kept boat and promising that he would go where other boats wouldn't we were sold. The trip itself was exactly what we were looking for and exceeded expectations. With only six of us on board we had the run... More

We have just finished our boat tour today with Captain Garlic Ali. I cannot recommend this experience enough. We were shown some beautiful beaches, given time to snorkel, kayak and even fish (his young son Batin caught a whopper!). I even swam with wild turtles which is an experience I will never forget. Captain Garlic is a very honest and... More

I have a confession to make – when it comes to boat trips I am an Aliholic. So is my wife, my daughter, my son and now – following our latest trip with Kas’s answer to Captain Marvel, so are our friends. This is the fifth time we’ve joined Ali on board Batin 2. Every trip is different and memorable... More

If you are wondering who to spend a day on the sea with, then look no further than choosing Captain Garlic Ali. His boat takes up to 12 people comfortably, so you are in for a real personable experience. The boat is beautiful. One which the Captain built himself to a very high spec. It has 12 very comfortable sun... More

If you are looking for a fantastic boat trip in Kas you certainly need to call Garlic Ali. A good captain with a pleasant personality will show you the most beautiful bays of the area while serving you delicious food. Thanks Ali

My boyfriend and I had two day trips on Captain Ali's 'Small Island' tour and we had a fantastic time. My boyfriend doesn't really like boat trips so its a credit to Captain Ali that he wanted to go again. The sea was so calm and tranquil, there were no concerns about seasickness! Captain Ali stops at 4-5 different places... More

Four years in a row we have spent one or two days in Ali's boat, each summer. The boat is clean, comfortable & spacious enough to host 10 people. Ali is warm & talkative person. He pays great attention to satisfy his guest, he looks for delighting each individual. He races for reaching first best locations before the crowd., he... More

There were 12 of us on the boat and we set sail for the small islands at exactly 10am, stopping here and there for a swim and snorkel. Captain Ali provides snorkels, masks and a kayak so there are plenty of options. He even has a swimming vest and other floatie devices if you're not very good at swimming. There... More

Garlic Ali is a very nice man. His boat is very clean. The lunch is prepared by his wife. Delicious food. He knows the bays around and if the weather is not good, he cancels the tour. I highly recommend him. By the way his tours are max. for 12 person. So it is very relaxed, you do not need... More

We decided to book on for our trip with Captain Garlic aboard the lovely Batin 2 and what a trip it was. Having had a walk up and down the harbour we were at pains to try and pick which boat trip we were to plump for. Captain Garlic was our choice and as we sat with him sipping apple... More
