“Fabulous day on the water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Consistent with other reviews, my husband and I experienced a thoroughly enjoyable day with Captain Ergun and his wonderful wife Merve along with 2 other couples. The weather was perfect..calm seas, sunny and refreshing waters. The hospitality was commendable and Ergun proved to not only be a capable captain but also an excellent tour guide. Merve created magic in the galley; Ergun grilled delicious fresh fish and we all sat down to a feast.
Our recommendation...travel with this couple. You will not be disappointed!

“Superb day on the water in an idyllic setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

I've done a lot of sailing in various countries, but this day trip had to rank among the best. The 50 foot boat is comfortable, the captain and his wife were young, very friendly and knowledgeable, and the food they served was delicious. The setting itself though was straight out of a James Bond movie: spectacular coastline and islands, gentle ocean and crystal clear waters. We snorkelled first, then relaxed on deck drinking wine while a great smelling meal was cooked. We were very well taken care of. The only (minor) point was that we had to motor everywhere, but that was only because it was calm winds in gorgeous sunshine.

This one is a no-lose trip that's guaranteed to please the most discerning of travellers.

Wonderful day out with Captain Ergun and his wife Merve. Myself and four girl friends had a fab day sailing around Kas, snorkeling, canoeing, swimming and lazing around on the yacht. We had a wonderful barbecue lunch with lots of different salads. Our hosts looked after us very well the whole day.Thank you for a wonderful day.

“Perfect day on a boat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

This was pretty much the perfect day of relaxing and messing about on a boat, but what made it more than just a nice day out was Captin Ergun and his wifes attention to detail. The food was some of the best we've had in Kas, even compared to some of the restaurants in town. Captin Ergun looked after everyone on the snorkelling trip and clearly knows the area very well to find the best spots. The equipment was very good quality. Water skiing is extra (something about petrol prices) but overall it was good value. Overall they were excellent hosts, even looking after our 3 month old baby that we had with us, while we ate our lunch.
