It was a lovely way to discover virgin coves. Very clean and cool boat, also Cap. Ali and his son are so kind and they make you feel like you own the boat. Food was amazing, hand made appetizers and fish were delicious. One of the must thing for Kas, way better than any other boat.

It's imposible to get such an excellent and humble service anywhere else. Garlic Ali and his son Batın are the best of the best. He selected the best and calmest coves for us with with stylish classic small boat. He even rescued a guy who was lost at one of the bays, the Coast Guard was unable to reach this... More

We were spending a month in Kas to cover my birthday. We did a couple of boat trips but picked Batin as the restaurant we were going to for my birthday (Bijou) had a review which included the family having spent the day with Captain Garlic Ali which sounded brilliant. No point repeating everything in previous reviews as they are... More

You are with maximum 12. And he makes sure you will fit in with the other people on the boat. Everybody has their own sunlounger... More

Captain Garlic Ali's tours are one of a kind. The warmth and hospitality we were shown by him and his family was undoubtedly above all expectations. The tour that leaves at 10am consists of visits to various secluded islands with crystal clear blue waters, a dream for lovers of the ocean. Ali's wife prepared a freshly cooked ottoman feast that...

Onlarca tekne arasında hiç kafanız karışmasın. Hemen gidin ve Kaptan Sarımsak Ali'yi bulun. Çok keyifli bir mavi yolculuğa çıkacaksınız. Kendinizi hem evinizde gibi hissedecek, hem de masmavi sularda çok eğelenceli saatler geçireceksiniz. Yemekler harika, tekne çok temiz, 12 kişi rahat rahat yolculuk edebilirsiniz. Ayrıca kanodan şnorkele ne ararsanız var. Don't be confused among tens of boats waiting in the port.... More

A stunning way to see this part of the coast. Completely relaxing as we moved between sunning ourselves, swimming, canoeing, snorkeling and eating delicious food. The other passengers were all great. It was good to meet people from other parts of the world. We met a lovely family from Denmark and a couple from Ankara. There were fewer passengers than... More

We had a fabulous day on Ali's boat, he runs a very relaxed efficient boat, took us to wonderful bays and coves, and always managed to find the quieter spots. Lunch was just fabulous, fresh fish with wonderful vegetable dishes. We loved it so much that we booked another day trip with him, we will definitely be coming back to... More

The best boat trip we had in Kas is defiantly done with Captain "Garlic" Ali. The man knows his way to provide excellent services along with kindness, lovely mentality and big smile. He makes sure that every person is comfortable and having good time. We had great day with amazing food and much fun/relaxing time. There's snorkeling gear on board... More
