Yildiz boat trips are the perfect way to spend a day when visiting Kalkan. Relaxing, friendly welcome, fantastic food and so clean. The standard has not changed since my first trip. If you do one thing when visiting the lovely Kalkan this must be it. You will not be disappointed. (Do book in advance as both brothers are always busy).

As soon as we stepped on the boat Yildiz 3 it was quite clear that this was going to be a friendly, professionally run trip and those words fitted the bill. For 70 Turkish lira you had a blissful day of five swimming stops including a mud bath if wanted. The boat was comfortably decked out for sunbathing with intermittent... More

Returning to Kalkan would not be the same without a day or two spent with captain Adem and his wonderful family. Truly the best boat trip day out you will experience. The food, the company, the care is all so perfect. Thank you once again and see you in May!! Sarah & Julien

This was our 6th boat trip with Adem and his wife on Yildiz and it was still as good. The food and hospitality is first class a very relaxing day at sea. Would not use any other boat Looking forward to our next trip

What a fantastic day out we had on the Yildiz 2 boat, sunbathing on the deck, swimming in the sea and enjoying the delicious lunch provided on board. Definitely recommended and one of the highlights of our holiday.

We have been coming to Kalkan for a few years now and always book ahead for a boat trip with Captain Adem. It is by far the best boat experience in Kalkan. The boat is very pretty, plenty of comfy sun beds, Captain Adem and his wife look after you for the day and keep you fed and watered all... More

My Mum and Dad visit Kalkan every year and always talk about how wonderful the boat trip with Yildiz is so as soon as we arrived we booked our day trip. We were on Yildiz 2 with Adam and his family who were lovely. We left the harbour at 10am and arrived back around 6.30ish with around 5 stop offs... More

After reading reviews this was the trip I wanted on my Birthday whilst on holiday. A big thank you to Captain Osman, Mehmet and the family. What a great day out. Five swim stops, one including a self mud pack from head to toe, great fun. Lunch was great, spicy chicken, rice, chips, Bhaji, veg and fish, followed by ice... More

We had been recommended Yildiz trips by some friends who have already visited Kalan and we weren't disappointed. A great mix of terrific food, stop offs for swimming, attractive boat, friendly service and good value. We caught fish off the side so we knew what we were eating for lunch couldn't have been fresher. We were out from 10 until... More
