Captain Osman and his family treated us to another fantastic day on his boat last week. Cruising from bay to bay, enjoying swimming, snorkelling, floating and making new friends. The extensive lunch and snacks provided throughout the day are wonderful, something for everyone. We'll be back again next year!

Boat trip on Yildiz with Captain Adem and his family yesterday. The boat is beautiful - he only takes max 16 people out which means it's not over crowded. There are plenty of boats to go on and we have tried a few over the years here in Kalkan but this was the best. Adem's wife prepares a fantastic fresh... More

We went on the yildiz 3 boat. You stop approximately 5-6 times at different bays so that you can go for a swim. (Floats & snorkels available to borrow) the captain explains at each stop why we have stopped there and the name of it. The lunch is wonderful. Lots of different dishes cooked by the captains wife on board.... More

We took a private boat trip with Adem and his family and all I can say is what a wonderful day. Adems wife is an amazing cook and prepared fantastic Turkish food throughout the day. Adem and his sons were very welcoming and made the day, especially when stopping at the mud island. I would definitely recommend. We paid 1000... More

Our group of 14 family and friends (including numerous teenagers) spent a wonderful day on Yildiz 2 with Captain Osman and his family. I arranged the trip several weeks before we arrived in Kalkan to be sure of securing a booking. The whole day was an absolute delight - Osman and his family are so lovely and friendly, the food...

My wife arranged a surprise sunset cruise on Yildiz 2 to celebrate my 50th birthday. She booked a private charter for our 2 family group; a total of 7 people. Captain Osman and his lovely family were excellent hosts. In fact, whilst I was ushered onto the upper deck, they quickly threw up some decorations in the dining area of... More

Plenty of shade on deck, even further shade rigged up later in morning on request. Visited several coves where we moored for some swim time. My son even had chance to do a spot of... More

Enjoyed a great day with captain Adem and his family. Made to feel very welcome all day. We stop 4-5 times, perfect for cooling off. They have a flippers and snorkels and masks to use if you want to explore. Had lunch which was mezze style and was all prepared onboard by his wife. Few hours later a mass of... More
