Visiting Kekova sunken city with Captain Hassan out of Ucagiz was a real treat. The water was a deep blue and the sunken ruins were visible through the clear waters of the sound and through the glass bottom portion of the boat. Captain Hassan was amazing and very accommodating to our wishes. We went in mid September and had the... More

We signed up to go on a boat trip to see the sunken city and arrived at the dock to dins that we were the only passengers that day. Instead of cancelling, the captain took us out for an amazing ride and exploration. Ask for the boat, Nergiz 4, and captain Durali. His wife is both deckhand and chef and... More

really enjoyed the sea kayaking, but the sunken city was over rated and a waste of time, couldn't really call it a city, a handful of ruins barely visible

the whole day was great - sparkling clear water, good boat, great crew, food - and all really cheap. Visited many different bays and swam for many hours - great value trip

We took other TripAdvisor visitors' advice and that of a couple of Kas locals and drove to Ucagiz, arriving at around 11.15 when it was really quiet. The drive was an experience in itself, winding through a corner of rural Turkey and dodging the goats. We'd been warned to ignore the guys at the entrance to the village offering parking... More

We drove to Ucagiz to take this trip, it's about 40 mins from Kas and cuts out a lot of sea cruising which is not my thing. A walk along the port will give you a chance to look at the boats and get the trip that suits you. We went on the excellent Merhana boat with the captain Durali,... More

I loved the scenery. It was very clam as we went there with a friends boat, therefore avoided from the crowds. A must see location at Kas

Excellent place in this part of Antalya,Strongly recommended to take a tour boat either from Kaş or Üçağız which will take you through many little bays in Kekova area and make a stopover at Kaleköy. Here you can have lunch,climb to the famous Castle,see the thombs in and under the sea,try some homemade ice cream or swim in any part... More

Try to take the glass bottom boat ride that will allow you to view the city underneath the sound. Also, try to see if the boat captain will allow swimming off the side of the boat.
