We had a fantastic day out on the boat trip to Kekova. Although we were staying in Kalkan we took the bus to Kas which meant we could travel by boat all day. Stopped for 5 swimming breaks, wonderful clear water and clear view of fish through goggles or mask. Fantastic lunch included, plus tea, homemade cakes and water melon... More

We took two boat trips on our recent visit. Both were excellent. The trip we took to Kekova was booked through Xanthos in Kas town and involved getting a bus to Kekova and catching the boat there. This means you get more time on the boat in the Kekova area. Loads of swimming and snorkelling with turtles right by the... More

We drove to Ucagiz which is a small fishing village close to Kekova Island. It is possible to take a short boat trip to Kekova Island for 120tl for the charter boat. This stopped at several places to swim but our favourite was the so called aquarium which had the bluest water and white sand bottom.

After going through the tour shops in Kas and been quoted ridiculous prices we ended up hiring a car for the day for TL 70. It was very easy and a great way to do the day at our own speed. We arrived at the sunken city and soon had done a deal with 'our captain' for a two hour... More

The boat tour around Kekova is perfect for both swimming and visiting ancient sites, normally it takes from 8 am to 5 pm

We loved a day trip around Kekova Sound, visiting the Sunken City, Simina and seeing the fantastic sea turtles. The trip was well paced and the food was delicious.

Having been on numerous boat trips over the past five years and found them varying in quality we were delighted with this one. It was a great day out - started with a transfer to the boat (1 hour from Kalkan) and then a day out on the boat consisting of numerous opportunities to swim from the boat (water lovely... More
