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

This experience ranks amongst the best that I or my family have had anywhere in the world and here is why... Captain Garlic and his family understand what tourists want. Nothing is too much trouble. When we were out turtle spotting, later in our day, we dropped anchor and got into the water for a close encounter. When I got... More

His approach as captain of the beautifully maintained Batin 2 manages to combine complete professionalism with complete relaxation - all done with smiles and a unique sense of fun. After returning 10 times over our various holidays in Kas, Ali has become a good friend, the boat trip... More

Woke up at 7:00 with the sun and had a quick swim before breakfast. Enjoyed a full day in the lovely area around Kas. Magnificent experience with Ali accompanied by his charming daugther (age...

My friends and I had a wonderful time on Batin boat. We left the harbour at 10 am and returned around 6 pm after a full day of sailing, swimming, diving, eating a delicious lunch and snacks throughout the day. Our captain was extremely attentive to each and every one of us' needs and wishes. He also provides goggles, snorkels,... More

We considered between doing the sunken city tour for 70 lira or this island for for 200 lira. We are so glad we chose Batin! The boat was smaller and took only 10 of us instead of a large one with 30+.Captain Ali was an incredible host and his son and co captain Batin (14) was amazing! They guaranteed us... More

With so many boats in Kas harbour, it was difficult to decide which boat to go on for a day cruise. There are 35-man boats, 100-man boats and small 12-man boats. A variety of prices too. Captain Ali encouraged us to join him on his small 12-man boat on a lazy island cruise instead of a full day sail to... More

Captain garlic is a charming and friendly man that will take care of all your needs when you are travelling on his boat trip. We leave the harbour at 10am sharp and don't come back until about 6pm. He takes you around the beautiful Turkish coast line! We then stop and go for a swim in the clear blue water.... More

What a beautiful day out! The boat is well maintained with clean facilities. Small but perfectly formed.......The whole enterprise is very professionally run. Kaptan Ali and family are good hosts and make sure you have the sort of day that suits you. Plenty of opportunity for quiet contemplation in a tranquil cove. Lots of swimming and water activity when you're... More
